I didn't actually take a tour, but walking along the wall was very nice during the day and at night. I was very happy to experience some peace and quiet while I walked around it (which is rare in big cities in China). There are other more interesting things to do, so I wouldn't devote a ton of time to... More

Great attraction, that lets you see all of the city easily. Hire a bike there and ride around the wall its a great way to see it all.

haven't used a bicycle for trips longer than 10 minutes for over 5 years, but still, using a bicycle to tour the city wall was a good choice. i can imagine that walking the entire city wall can become a bit boring or dull.

I thought the city wall was impressive however the bike ride along the top was absolutely dreadful. A few minutes after setting off the surface became pure cobble stone, mile after mile of it, which made this the most ghastly bike ride I can remember doing. We ended up turning around and sped up to get the experience over and... More

Really enjoyed visiting the wall ! Highly recommend that anyone visiting the area stop by and see this as well! Also should be noted there is a nice farmers market just outside the gate.

We started from the East gate, just down from our hotel. After paying the 40 CYN each we just ambled along the wall from east to west gate. It took us about four hours. It was sunny and reasonably warm for early November so that helped. The wall is a superb was to go around the old city and see... More

I took the bike, well worth cycling the 14kms on top of the city wall. It was cold, but comfortable if you have the right clothing. If you walk, do take proper walking shoes as it is all cobelled stones. You can pick up your bike at one gate and drop it at another if you want to. I dropped... More

Worth traveling on the bikes around the wall. You decide how far you want to bike. The bikes are in very good condition. The pollution was really horrible so wear a high level 3M mask.

You can hire a bicycle and ride on top of the city wall. One circuit is about 14km. I little cold in the winter so wrap up well!

We biked around the city wall and had a fantastic time. Be sure to pace yourself, since you are limited to 2 hours by the bicycle rental company, before they start charging you 5 yuan for every 10 minutes that you go over the 2 hour limit.
