After looking at all the great reviews about Paul on trip advisor I emailed him to see if he was available for a day trip. Luckily for us he was.
After picking us up from the hotel in his incredibly clean SUV, we headed for the hills and the 'wild' side of the wall at Huanghuacheng.
It was an incredible experience, we saw only 3 other people on the wall, and have got some breathtaking photos and memories. We managed to cover approx 4kms and I was very happy, as there were some pretty steep sections.
Paul made sure that we set the pace though, and so we took our time and took lots of photos.
There was no pressure to buy anything or stop anywhere we didn't want to, and you felt like you were on a road trip with a good friend.
The tour was worth every cent, and I can whole heartedly say that you will not regret seeing this side of the wall rather than one of the touristy sites.
Thanks again Paul,
Martha and Pete.
