Since 2003, Great Wall Adventure Club has been bringing the excitement and wonder of the Great Wall of China to over 26,000 satisfied hikers from 55 countries around the world. Since we began operating our Great Wall hiking and trekking programs, some of our clients have included Google, NBC Television, British Airways, NASA and Microsoft. Our commitment to customer service and satisfaction has led our Great Wall programs to receive positive write-ups in prestigious publications such as The New York Times, USA Today, National Geographic, CNN and Fodor's China. Great Wall Adventure Club was also featured in an episode of TLC's 19 Kids & Counting. While our bread and butter has always been Great Wall hiking and trekking, we also specialize in all forms of China travel and touring, from the snow-capped peaks of Tibet to the rolling sand dunes of the Gobi Desert. For 2014, we have developed new express train tours to Xian, home of the immortal Terracotta Warriors. For more information please visit our informative and constantly edited and updated English website where you can find Great Wall and China tours galore!

My husband and I, ages 66 and 64, loved this hike! That said, it was harder than anticipated due to the elevation changes and so many stone steps of various sizes. I appreciated that Henry was attentive, did all he could to assure that we were safe, and he was very encouraging. Henry added to the experience with historical and... More

My wife and I did the two day imperial camping tour and needless to say, we are not disappointed! Oliver, our guide for the two days, was A-Mazing and the experience really was once in a lifetime. How many times will I ever get to see the sun rise on the great wall of China?

Amazing to sleep in a watchtower, in a nice tent, wake up in the middle of the night to a full moon, wake up at down to see the sunrise - with towers and walls silouetted. The walk was exactly my moderate hiking level. The beginning was pretty steep but it got a bit easier with time, and day two... More

These tours really are so worth it. I was considering going to hike by myself on the wall and I'm so glad I instead chose to go with Great Wall Adventure Company.

We did an overnight hike with Mark Ma. It was exceptional! From the initial interaction with the company until the drop off at the end of the tour, this is by far the best service & adventure we could have asked for.

We booked with GWAC several months before traveling to China based on the reviews we read. Since we were only in Beijing four nights and wanted to see other historical sights, we booked the one day Jiankou to Mutianyu hike.
