In addition to the Great Wall excursion, travelgreatwall.com also provides ticket reservation services to its clientele. We purchased section A tickets for the amazing «Golden Mask Dynasty show». We appreciated their service mainly for two reasons: a. Effective communications. It was easy and fast to exchange emails with travelgreatwall.com. The tickets were offered, selected and reserved within 48 hours. b.... More

This place is off the beaten track but worth the effort to get there. It is a beautifully created town with water canals and small pleasure boats the are rowed across lakes. The are stone arched bridges, ancient buildings and atmosphere galore.Once you have strolled through the town and enjoyed all the beautiful ancient buildings, proceed to the cable car... More

We took a tour of the Mutianyu Great Wall through “TravelGreatWall.com”. They have several tours available and we choose the Mutianyu section because we heard it wasn’t as busy or touristy at the Badaling section. They picked us up at our hotel around 7:30AM, they were about 15 minutes late, but not a big deal to us, our hotel was... More

I chose the tour "Great Wall Jinshanling to Simatai Hiking". To be honest you are only paying for TRANSPORTATION and LUNCH (no beverages included). That is ALL. It is not a proper TOUR. The GUIDE is not a "GUIDE" as the person does NOT accompany people walking in the Wall. The guide only takes the passengers to the beginning of... More

Hoping for same-day Peking Opera tickets at Li Yuan Theater, I called the Travel Great Wall office (the Opera's ticketing agency) to see if there were any available. There were, so I confirmed quickly through email, and we made arrangements for the pickup. As we're traveling without cell phone service, our coordinator WhatsApp'd me to let me know of the... More

I found out about this hike (6km Hike-Jinshanling to Simatai West) on a travel blog and I am so grateful! While it may take a little longer to get to this section than some of the other sections, it was well worth it. There was our group of 11 and we passed maybe a few other tour groups of about...

We booked the buses to this section of the wall through Beijing Downtown backpackers following a recommendation by a colleague. The trip was about 45usd and was worth every penny (as well as the 3hour trip to get there). The wall was empty and our group of 8 were left to trek a 6km stretch to Simatai east. There is... More

Our guide for the day, Colin from China Highlights picked us up on time. this very steep and challenging hike was so picturesque, and had so many photo opportunites. Colin was a very thoughtful guide and was concerned with our health and safety, as it was an extremely hot and humid day. We took plenty of rest breaks and Colin... More

We were picked up and transferred to Jinshanling Great Wall section. We choose to take the cable car up to the wall. We walked the restored section to Simati which has unrestored sections. This was hard but just take your time, I am very overweight and over 50 so you too can do it. The views are breath taking. Most... More
