Thanks to Millie for a fun well organized hike. Each week there is an update on the hikes. You meet centrally and take a bus to the area. Combination of local and foreign (chinese speaking) guides. Routes are well researched and updated regularly as things change. Walking sticks made available. Communal lunch at local restaurant afterwards. Hikes at different levels and duration.

Organization was seamless and impeccable. The guides made sure we had everything we needed - both clear information and delicious food and snacks at all times so that we could fully enjoy the views and the hike. It was also just the right level of challenge for me - steep climbs and epic views. Guide Katie did an amazing job looking after all the details!

Huge thanks to Hayden and the Beijing Hikers team for the metaphorical leg work to get us out and about this spring. Its not been easy to find places to hike during the COVID-19 putbreak but the team has laid on weekly walks in the Beijing area. With fewer tourists in town, its been an opportunity to explore areas away from the Great Wall, although as things open up, I know that wall hikes will be back on the agenda! The walks are fantastically well organised with knowledgeable guides, small groups of around 10 clients and well planned routes which take the path less trodden as much as possible. Walks are rated for strenuousness, so you can find a trip to match your fitness. Sure you could get out and about for less money, but if you want to be sure of a top quality, hassle free walk then Beijing Hikers provide a first class service.

I went on several hikes with Beijing Hikers in the fall of 2019, including an overnight camping trip. They were great for several reasons: --Well-run, with easy to follow instructions for pickup and good buses for transportation --Well-planned routes that met expectations. Really, really enjoyable and amazing. --Great company among the fellow hikers. --Fair pricing Two caveats: First, this is real hiking. If you are not in basic good shape, don't go. Second, read the route ratings carefully and pick the one appropriate for your level. The harder ratings tend to be longer and the group is moving faster. The ratings also tell you about elevation, but because you're in a flat part of China, breathing is not really a problem. Also, be aware weather on the hike may be different than in Beijing. Worth scoping out in advance.

Hi Steve, thanks for the review Great points about fitness and hike selection. We do aim to offer something for everyone each week, and we're totally happy to offer advice on choosing a suitable hike. If you're a Level 5 hiker you probably don't want to book in on a Level 2 - and vice-versa! Best regards, Hayden

I lived in the city of Beijing for 4 years and being a nature person - don’t know what I would have done without Beijing Hikers. Great, well organized walks, nice company and good source of information about Beijing, China and around
