      Exceeded my expecations!
      What an amazing day. It really exceeded my expectations. The walk/climb itself was harder than I expected, so if you are going, make sure that you have good footwear, plenty of fluids, and some snacks along the way. I go to the gym and cycle to work every day, and it is still tiring on my legs. Don't let that put you off; you just need to be prepared. The guide was great, and the communication between Joe and myself was fluid from beginning to end, so I knew I was in safe hands. I was picked up and dropped off in a very nice car. I went for a local lunch after the walk and was directed and supported during the walk. I would highly recommend it if you want to experience the real feel of the Great Wall away from the tourists and selfie sticks.

      Great hike along the great wall
      After a business trip, I decided at short notice to book a tour to the Great Wall together with two colleagues. The booking went smoothly via email and WeChat. It was a great trip that I can highly recommend. Our guide Joe picked us up at the hotel in the morning and after a two-hour drive we arrived at the starting point. We were very lucky with our guide. Joe's English is excellent and already in the car he answered all our questions about China, the culture, life and of course the Great Wall. After the driver dropped us off, we walked a short distance up the mountain to reach the wall. From there we followed the wall for about 8 km and experienced many different parts with varying degrees of steepness, obstacles, towers and of course excellent views. We only encountered a dozen other people on the entire tour. This wild section is therefore perfect for those who want to experience the Great Wall away from mass tourism. After the hike, Joe took us to a local farm where we enjoyed an excellent lunch. All in all, this day will remain in our memories forever. Thank you Joe for this wonderful experience!

      Lovely experience. Highly recommended!
      We booked our Private Transfer with Joe and it turned out to be an excellent experience. Tim was our driver for the day and he was wonderful. The car was very clean, comfortable and in great condition. Tim spoke perfect English and gave us many insights about the wall and China in general during the drive. Tim also helped us stop by a local food joint to try out local delicacies. I would highly recommend booking with Joe and Tim!

      Unique hiking experience
      My husband and I had a wonderful time hiking the Great Wall with our guide Tim. The hike was beautiful and moderately challenging. I enjoyed experiencing both the ruins and the renovated sections of the wall. Hiking through ruins is a very unique experience. The slide down to the bottom was a great way to end our hike! Tim did a great job getting in touch with me before the trip, and our driver was excellent as well.

      Unforgettable!
      From my research of the Jiankou section of the wall, I knew I couldn't miss the spectacular highlights of Heaven's Ladder, Eagles Fly Upward and Beijing Knot. Untouched Great Wall recommended that we hike from Jiankou eastward towards Huanghuacheng which is the more dramatic and adventurous route than the opposite direction towards Mutianyu. Some videos online of this section are daunting but I'd say anyone with a bit of nerve and decent fitness could do this comfortably! So beware of being unnecessarily put off. Untouched Great Wall organised a bespoke experience that accommodated our plans and exceeded all of our expectations! Tim was an extremely informative, fun, easy going and conscientious guide - he provided the more thrilling and daring hike we were looking for but always gave responsible guidance for our safety. For those relying on English language for the tour, Tim's was very accomplished, as was the quick and super clear email correspondence from Untouched. The tour was unforgettable and we wouldn't hesitate to book this again or to take another tour with Untouched to see another part of the wall!

      Amazing, incredible, awesome in the true sense of the word.
      I travelled from Australia to do a two-night / three-day hiking & camping trip on the Great Wall with Joe's company "Untouched Great Wall Hike" in July 2023. It was the experience of a lifetime. There were just the two of us, me and my guide Tim. Tim was bloody fantastic. Erudite about the Wall and Chinese history, extremely well-travelled himself, knowledgable about the world, funny, friendly, and with impeccable English (though of course he protested otherwise). I did a three day hike in three different sections of the wall. We didn't go to the overdeveloped daytripper sections at all. The first night camping completely alone in a deserted watchtower, with Tim sleeping in a farmhouse back down in the nearby village. The second night in an absolutely delightful guesthouse in another village. While hiking on the first day we saw nine people, the second day all of three (a Mexican couple and their guide coming the other way), and the third day not a single soul. There are a number of companies who say they offer Great Wall hiking and camping. But - some turn out to no longer offer camping, some you're not actually camping on the wall merely nearby, some you'll be in what's basically a campground with other campers, some clearly aren't interested in solo travellers. I contacted many companies before making my choice. I made the right one. I can't recommend Untouched Great Wall Hike, Joe and Tim highly enough. Thank you for everything. PS. FWIW I didn't book through TA, Joe put the trip together for me after I contacted him through his website. If you want any more info on what we did and where we went, please feel free to message me directly.

      Stunning tailor made 3-day Great Wall hike
      My wife and I had an amazing, tailor made, 3-day Great Wall trip with our driver/guide Jing Wai Wa (Tim) which we put together with Joe over the previous months. Due to personal circumstances and having been surprised by a thunderstorm we had to change some of the itinerary at the last minute but Tim found us beautiful alternative hikes and was always accommodating. It was great of him to provide us with different alternatives with regards to length, terrain, safety etc. In the end we hiked a section of the wall at Longquanyu and slept in a tent in a tower on the Great Wall there (an unforgettable experience)! The next day we did sections of the Gubeikou and Simatai Great Wall (via cable car in W(ater) Town at night) where we stayed at the Duan's Yard Gubei Water Town (boutique hotel) with its own hot spring spa, situated a minute on foot away from the cable car entrance and the boat jetty (with which you and your luggage can get back to the exit of W town while seeing a nice section of it as its a pedestrian area). On our third day we went back up to the wall via the cable car and walked from towers 8 to 10 and back (half an hour) and 4 to 5 and back (20 minutes) before taking the cable car back down again before driving back to Beijing. One cannot hike more than these of the ten towers of this section of the Great Wall which is illuminated at night. Tim looked after us extremely well and taught us a lot about China’s history, fauna and flora, is a safe driver and guide, friendly, reliable and flexible. He is quite simply the perfect guide! We had an absolutely wonderful time with Tim and have made memories which will remain with us for the rest of our lives. PS Feel free to DM me for more information about our trip.

      A deep dive into the Chinese culture!
      Starting from the tour organization, Joe will do anything to help you out! He’s kind and always available. The day I spend with Tim, my local guide, was a blast! Tim is polite, highly educated, willing to engage in insightful conversations, and an impressive English speaker! A deep dive into the Chinese culture. Regarding the hike, I don’t think the description provided actually meets the excursion intensity honestly. An average fit person can easily manage it in less than 2h.

      Awesome guide, and such a fabulous experience
      We had a fabulous day with Joe - a private tour of the Forbidden City, Lunch and then the Great Wall. Joe was so informative and interesting, with so many unique stories across the day and different sites. Getting around Beijing is quite challenging as a foreigner and Joe and his driver made it seamless.

      Untouched, sacred, adventure
      Another hour long bus ride and our group also checks out a restored area of the Great Wall of China. The restored part of the Great Wall's floor is a lot more stable and flat where as the original wall is dirt, gravel and feels less safe. The steps are still steep in the restored part of the Great Wall and my legs are feeling it but the views are amazing! The great part is that Intrepid takes the group on two parts of the wall where it's not busy! I did not encounter many people. Love it.

      Amazing tour with Joe to the Great Wall
      Joe presented us an unforgettable time to the Great Wall. He arrived punctual at the hotel with his comfortable 7-seater van. As it was a public holiday he had recommended to leave very early, which had paid off; it wasn’t crowded yet when we arrived. He answered all our questions, gave us a tour through china’s history with a professional, yet personal touch. We can highly recommend Joe and this tour to the Great Wall. It’s been a pleasure and a wonderful experience. Thank you Joe to make this trip an unforgettable experience.

      The Great Wall of China the east way
      I highly recommend this tour! You’ll be picked up right by your hotel, the driver drove us safely in a comfortable car to the wall. Tickets were purchased in advance for us. We took the lift up and the slide down! They try to make it the best experience possible. I recommend to go at noon, early afternoon when it’s less crowded. Such a great experience! ♥️

      We had an amazing day at the Great Wall with Joe.
      Joe is a very competent, reliable and funny guide. He speaks English fluently and is able to enrich your visit with very interesting information. We really appreciated his flexibility in arranging a mini van with a very short notice, instead of the previously booked car, because a few friends decided to join in the very last moment. For sure I would call him again for future tours, also to other parts of China! Thank you Joe! It was great with you!! :-)

    This was our first time booking a tour and it was a great experience! We hired Untouched Great Wall Hike on a private 2 day tour with camping, starting with the Jiankou section the first day and Huanghuacheng section the second day. Our guide Peter was awesome, really kind too! He provided historical information on the Great Wall, and was very aware of our hiking pace (a ton of steps and sweating but worth it 100% if you love hiking/photography). We also loved the food options Peter chose, he selected a variety of dishes to try. Would highly recommend this company, as well as Peter! Thank you!

    This tour is absolutely sensational and exceeded my expectations massively. The privilege of camping on one of the 7 man made wonders on your own is an awesome experience. If you’re into photography this is brilliant to be able capture sunset and sunrise with the Great Wall as your foreground. The team were very accommodating even with my accommodation out of downtown Beijing. Guys are very knowledgeable and everything you would need is catered for, cannot recommend highly enough! Thanks Joe!
