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...

Great Wall is a must-see if you're in China and there isn't a better way to do it than book it through GreatWallHiking.com. Our tour guide was Tao and he was excellent. We did this trip as a couple so we had more of an exclusive experience and Tao was very polite and patient with the amount of time we... More

This day trip with "Great Wall Hiking" is the perfect way to see the Great Wall. We hiked from Simatai West to Jinshanling - there were almost no people, our group was very small which was great, we had the opportunity to check out part of the non-renovated section of the wall which was very impressive and our guide took...

We had a great time on our trip to Mutianyu. Tao was our guide and he was really informative and kept us entertained throughout. The unrefurbished section of the wall was the most interesting and made the trip. We did also enjoy the refurbished section especially the luge on the way down! The lunch was one of the best meals...

This tour with a hike from Simatai West to Jinshanling was above my expectations by far. It was a small group and we all got along very well. The guide was very knowledgeable and went for the little extras - like carrying a cold beer each in a cooling bag as a surprise! The van transportation was comfortable. But the... More

We decided to get a private tour as we were short on time in Beijing. The planning was flawless, car and guide showed up on time. Nice car, knowledgeable guide. The hike itself was great. Lunch was delicious. Before the trip, received information by email and that was helpful. We got lucky as it was a beautiful day and not... More

We hiked the small-open group Simatai West to Jinshanling trip. The group ended up with 5 hikers and our guide, Danny. Danny was great; knowledgeable, helpful, and kept the group moving when we needed to be. Even though it was very smoggy in the city we lucked out and had almost clear skies out at The Wall. The food afterwards... More
