The tour was great, it leaves early morning from the Hutong area and then take you the the wall after 1 1/2 hour drive. At the wall you have 3 hours to hike from tower 1 to tower 22 which is reasonable and totally beautiful.

Wonderful moment in the middle of dry mountains within the suburb of the rural Beijing. To be honest, coming there on your own is an ordeal and expensive, whether in terms of budget or struggling with taxi, fake taxi, bus and fake buses... But eventually, the adventure worth it. Once you firstly get on the wall, all you can see... More

We took a day trip with Simon Xiao, as many other reviewers had recommended. 5-star experience there; he was a great guide. Hiking the wall was of course an amazing experience. I just don't know if driving all the way out to this section is worth it. It was still rather crowded, and because of the pollution of Beijing, what... More

The Jinshanling great wall was fantastic! We had a great experience climbing the wall. One of the best things according to this place is that it's so uncrowded. Sometimes, you can be alone which make the possibilities for taking photos and enjoy the beautiful surroundings even better. I definitely recommend everyone who would like to se the Great Wall to...

Just walked 5 miles on the Jinshanling wall towards Samatai but found like few others this route is closed, so we had to turn back & return to Jinshanling. The wall was fantastic seems to go on & on up & down twisting & turning no wonder the Chinese refer it to the Dragon. This was my first visit to... More

The day started rather early and cold. But nothing can deter me and my friend to venture the none restored area of the grand Great Wall. Climbing from the small town below, on the side of the mountain ( not at all the most common touristy way), I was warned by John (Hereisbeijing.com) the awesomest tour guide ever, that there...

I imagine this is the way the wall was. On this stretch it wasn't fixed up, there were people selling to tourists every 50 ft. Many times we looked forward and backward and could only see people in the far distant. It's tough trekking. We encountered one family from Sweden who brought their grandmother along. She must have been over... More

China's best kept secret. We loved our day trip to Mutianyu. Took about 2 1/4 hours by private car with own guide from Beijing. Lots of traffic. Good decision not to do a bus tour. Because we had a private tour we were not rushed and stayed on the actual wall for about 2 hours. Learnt a lot. Our guide... More

I've been to a few different sections of the Great Wall near Beijing, and this is by far the most picturesque, and least ruined by tourists. I went in the winter too, which helps. It was not too cold to stand. It is possible to take a bus to near the Hebei border and then take a taxi from there.... More
