          Beautiful scenery and a nice hike at the Great Wall.
          Thanks to our guide James for bringing us to a wonderful part of the Great Wall. The view from the hike was amazing! He told us interesting facts about the Great Wall and the area around, and made sure that we had a really nice day from the moment he picked us up, and until we were back in the city again.

          Absolute best pick for a complete 1 day Datong Grottoes and Temple visit!
          We are so glad we picked this tourguide! A greatest day in the Datong area! Perfect english speaking guide Anna, very relaxed, friendly, knowledgeable, close local connection with the area and proud of the historic heritage. She has excellent feel for the needs of her travel party and arranged a perfect car - very important since tje two sights are quite far apart. The trip however is cut in two parts with a stop at a fantastic restaurant! Could not have been better. If you read this, thanks again, Anna!

          Experience the wall in solitude
          Not to miss trip to see unrestored parts of the Wall, amazing views, very good & friendly guide who clearly knows the way and can navigate this part safely. Provided water, walking sticks and a lovely lunch in a local restaurant. Car & driver are excellent as well. Don’t attempt it alone - need to navigate the woods & avoid closed off & dangerous sections of the wall as local gvt is blocking access.

          Avoid the crowds and see the Great Wall in it's unreconstructed state
          Being relatively far out from Beijing, the Gubeiikou section of the wall is ideal if you want to avoid crowds and see the wall in a relatively unreconstructed state. We were there on a beautiful Wednesday in May for three hours and saw exactly two other people. The section is also relatively flat, although we still climbed 74 floors according to my phone, Our guide, Peter, was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. The tour was entirely private, just our group, so we could go at our own pace and take all the pictures we wanted. Lunch was a delicious addition. It comes after the hike, so bring some snacks and eat breakfast. There are cheaper options, but you will not regret spending the money.

          Amazing Great Wall hiking day trip
          The Great Wall hiking day trip was my personal vacation highlight! James, our tour guide, was super friendly, funny and took care of everything. He organised the pickup in Bejing, guided us on the Great Wall and introduced us to traditional chinese food after the hike. This day trip was way better than the typical way of visiting the Great Wall at Mutianyu which I have also done during my trip. You get to be active, see nicer parts of the Great Wall and experience a true adventure!

          Amazing experience!
          I had an amazing experience taking this private hiking tour. I didn't want to go only to the typical tourist spots. So this tour is the perfect combination because you start in the most pristine zone of Jiankou and end up in Mutianyu, where you can take the cable car to go down. I was a bit anxious about the intensity of the hike, but I can confirm that it is completely doable. The first section of Jiankou was my favourite part; we really had the Wall for ourselves. My guide, Peter, was funny and experienced and since I was travelling by myself, he was very kind, offering to take some pictures. Worth every single penny.

          Not to be missed while in Beijing!
          Since it was a chinese holiday, the tour company decided to begin the day earlier to avoid the crowds and traffic jam on the way back, which was a great call. We’ve arrived at the Great Wall, when almost no one was there! I was able to walk around places where the wall was completely destroyed, partially reconstructed and fully reconstructed. The views where amaaaazing! I know this is an expensive tour, specially if you go solo, such as myself, but it’s totally worth it. This company is very professional, the driver was great, and the guide was a lovely person to be around :) He explained a lot of curiosities about the wall, as long as its history, and answered all my questions. Lunch was also great, pretty local, with veg options :) They provide enough water and snacks a long the way. The hike is pretty easy, not much physical effort required. I can’t express enough my gratitude for this tour! Not to be missed while in Beijing!

          Hearty hike to unrestored portion of the Great Wall and Summer Palace walking tour
          Our guide, Peter, was wonderful on this adventure. Started out with an easy hotel pickup in a new car, travel 90 minutes to a rural area for the start of an hour long steep hike up to the unrestored part of the Great Wall, an hour climbing around the sections of the wall, hiking down for 30 minutes before a fantastic place for lunch, with a Summer Palace walking tour to wrap up the day before hotel drop off. We felt safe the entire time but wished we had brought hiking boots as the hike was on rocky ground and very steep. Peter brought hiking poles for us and they were extremely helpful as well as water for us to drink for all the exertion. I was hoping to see the wall go into the water at Huanghuacheng, but we did not see the lake or a restored section of the wall on this trip. The Summer Palace was stunning and another tour guide, Sue, came along to share facts about the location with us. The food was AMAZING and we enjoyed the adventure!

          Great trip to the Forbidden City in Beijing
          James is an excellent guide. He knows his history and is able to explain in a straightforward way. He is very polite and attentive and with a good sense of humour. I would highly recommend James for your visit to Beijing.

          Walking along the wall with James
          We booked a private tour along the Great Wall of China with James, and what a day it was! The weather couldn’t have been better as James led us to the unrestored section of the wall to start. As we walked and marveled at the breathtaking scenery, James shared his extensive knowledge of the area’s history. The hike led us through stunning spots with postcard-worthy views. Eventually, we reached the restored section of the wall, continuing our hike while soaking in the beauty around us. James had thoughtfully provided snacks and water, which were much appreciated on a hot day. We concluded our adventure with a delicious local lunch, every dish was yummy. Thank you, James, for an unforgettable experience—it was a pleasure from start to finish.

          Amazing Views and Great Guide.
          Jason was a great guide, and the walk was well worth it! Went while it was very cold, but this meant the views were spectacular from the top! Going along the more abandoned parts of the wall was so much fun, and was a lot more unique and interesting than the restored parts. You do get to see the restored parts at the end of the walk as well.

          A magical experience!
          We had a fantastic time on our trek with James! Not only did he show us the best scenic spots, but he helped us get through the parts of the trek that were more difficult (which we really appreciated!). And he is an AMAZING photographer! We will definitely be doing another trek with James in the future, and are so looking forward to seeing another beautiful part of the Great Wall!

          Unforgettable moment with our guide James
          Unforgettable moment with our guide James. We have booked the tour over the unrenovated great wall with 6km hiking. The hike is strenuous and should not be underestimated. The ascent is harmless, as is the hike over the great wall, but the descent with its thousands of steps absolutely guarantees sore muscles. But the tour is worth it, standing alone on the unrenovated Great wall is priceless. The guide James and our driver were just top over the top. Very nice and companionable and the food afterwards divine❤️❤️❤️❤️.. We are still raving about this and the tour. We can only recommend this tour operator to over 199% and would book with them. Everything was perfect from the booking to the contact before and during and after the tour it was the highlight of our Beijing trip
