With children aged 12 & 8 yrs, as long time expats we were seeking a road less travelled Wall experience with top quality guide and service. We chose a one day private hike from Simitai West to Jinshanling, knowing that it would present challenges but great rewards. Booking was smooth and fast. Cheney was a perfect fit guide for us:...

Lily was an exceptional tour guide that took us to the Great Wall. It was better than I expected. Not nearly as crowded as I thought and was well maintained and clean. Lily handled all our tickets, took care of our souvenirs, gave us great advice, and took many pictures for us. She went out of her way to accommodate... More

My husband and I did the two day group hike with our guide Cheney and one other hiker in mid-July. The hike met our expectations of being challenging with lots of uphill and steep steps, and equally steep downhills. It was hard on my out-of-condition leg muscles, but the views and atmosphere made the pain worthwhile. While it was very... More

My husband and I had the privilege of doing the 2 day hike of the Great Wall with this company. They were professional from beginning to end and we really can't complain about anything! Robert was absolutely amazing and very knowledgeable about the history of the wall and China. We loved every minute of the hike and experience. Book with... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our day with Peter as our guide. Very glad we choose the simatai, west jinshaling part of the wall as we saw very few people (under 100) over the entire hike and for the first hour saw only 4 other people. You do need an average level of fitness as some parts were steep, however, the day we... More

This was pretty much the best day we had during our stay in China. It was really hot outside so it might not have been the best day as the tour involves a lot of climbing. However it was beyond fun, climbing up the unrestored parts of the Mutianyu for the first hour and so and checking out the towers... More

We thoroughly recommend this company. We did the two day tour. We were greeted by Robert who was both knowledgable and friendly. Very good English. Picked up at our hotel and dropped back again. We had all the water and snacks that was available. No need to take water. Travelled in an air conditioned van. The first day took in... More
