My husband and I took a 3 day hike with Great Wall Hiking. The hike was outstanding and the 3 days allowed us many different views of the different sections of the Wall. The hikes were at times strenuous but you can go at your own pace and rest as needed. However the views were well worth the effort. Each... More

What a great day! Nice hike in to the Wild Wall, which was absolutely spectacular! We lucked out with a low pollution day and clear skies. Cheney was fantastic as our guide and full of useful information. One of the coolest things we have ever done. No wonder it is on most everyones bucket list. Very few people on this... More

I was a solo traveler in December who wanted to do a tour of the Great Wall where it wouldn't be busy, so I booked a private tour with Peter as my guide. Peter had extensive knowledge of the Great Wall and provided me with a huge amount of historical information both in the drive out to the Wall and... More

This entrance to the Great Wall was a little less than 2 hours from Beijing and worth every minute of the extra drive. We hiked for 3 kilometers and only saw a few dozen people. Great scenery and photos. A perfect spot.

In the December of last year, I went to Beijing with my classmates as our graduation trip. Although the day we went to the Great Wall was a sunny day, it was cold on that day with cold wind. In front of the entrance of Great Wall, we took a group photo and started our journey. It was easy at... More

This was one of the most memorable experiences I've ever had. We really enjoyed our private hike with our guide, Yaxin, from Simatai West, Jinshanling to Gubeikou on the Wall. The scenery was absolutely breathtaking at every turn and Yaxin was incredibly knowledgable and just a pleasure to be around. Great Wall Hiking is a very well-organized and well-run company....

Definitely recommend this company if you are considering any more than just the 'touristy' version of the Great Wall. I believe they do everything from 1 to 9 day tours - we did a 4 day hike and it was definitely the highlight of our 3 weeks in China. Our guide Peter, was not only an expert communicator and had...
