Truly an amazing experience. The history, the beauty, the surrounding views were all incredible. I was apprehensive to go on one of these tours... the horror stories of limited time on the Great Wall and detours to tea and jade shops had me worried. I...More

We hiked a section for 3-4 hours. It was so beautiful and not at all crowded. We only saw a couple other small groups of people on our entire walk. Several vendors sell unique things on the wall. We even bought chopsticks up there. Really...More

unforgettable and awesome. trekked 18km and was the first to reach the end point among my group. Had a buggy local who kept insisting on following me but that was fine. It's less crowded and very worth the climb. Loved it! travelled in 2014

It was our first visit to Beijing and we had read about the crowds at the other sections of the wall. So we booked a guide for the Jinshanling section and we were not disappointed. Beautiful sections of the wall scale the mountains, relatively empty...More
