best part of the great wall!
Jan 2020
It was beautiful and even though we haven't been on another part of the wall, I can definitely say this is the most stunning part of the wall. The lake view is priceless and there are a lot of faculties around the wall at this place. Unfortunately the amusement park was closed due to winter and most part of the wall was also closed but at the summer time I am pretty sure it's the best. Especially for people with kids. You can also float on the lake in a boat.

Incredible!!!

Highly recommend visiting the Great Wall. We did a tour that included a driver and tour guide transporting us to part of the Wall that’s easily accessible with a cable car. It had snowed the day before so we had a beautiful, clear sunny day but still very cold so luckily we dressed warm. The view was spectacular and the Wall history and construction unbelievable.

Guide May
Dec 2019 • Couples
Enjoyed this trip thoroughly. Thanks to May for picking us up at our hotel early in the morning and dropping us off at the airport in time for the flight. In between she showed us the great wall. Very thoughtful of her to pick up some fruit and water prior to picking us up.

She was knowledgeable and very friendly, spoke good English and was pleasant to deal with.

For someone who does not speak Mandarin I would recommend taking a guided tour rather than doing a solo trip. Will help tremendously.

Loved it. Thanks May.

Great Hiking Experience
Nov 2019
We had a fantastic time with our guide on The Great Wall. The weather was perfect and our guide was super knowledgeable about all facts and history of The Great Wall. His passion for The Great Wall was very clearly evident and made the excursion that much better. We threw tons of questions at him and he answered every one of them. He chose a very fun restaurant and tasty dishes for us to eat. The car was very clean and they provided water and bananas for us. He was very personable and we would highly recommend this tour.

The Great Wall
Nov 2019
Walking up the steps is pretty tricky because they were designed to slow down any invaders. The steps are intentionally set at different heights so you have to look down instead of upward. But once you get to the top the view will amaze you!!!

Excellent Experience!
Nov 2019
I can highly recommend Wild Great Wall for just about anything you want to book in Beijing. I did a couple of different solo bookings- one to Huanghuacheng where I hiked all morning, and one to a coupe of different sites in Beijing city. Both drivers, Sun and Cui, were absolutely wonderful. If/when back in China, I would not hesitate to book with them again because everything went very smoothly. One thing worth mentioning, my hotel was changed at the last minute the night before my first tour, and I emailed immediately, hoping that someone would see it even at night, to change my pickup point. Ricky responded quickly, as always, and changed it easily. You will have both very good communication upon making your reservations and can only imagine that your drivers wil be equally as wonderful. 5 stars.

Great Wall Tour - Exceptional
Nov 2019
We (party of 6 from the U.S. ranging in age from 27 to 66) would highly recommend May and the driver. Both were extremely friendly. May was informative and eager to please; her English was good. The driver consistently offered us assistance in exiting the van. The lunch was delicious and we had more than enough to eat. Thanks for an awesome experience and making our trip to Beijing so very memorable!

(Some did feel rushed during our visit to the Summer Palace which was after we left the Great Wall.)

Private 2-day Great Wall hiking adventure!
Nov 2019
DO THIS TOUR. This was an excellent and rare opportunity to see the beauty of the wall in isolation. I cannot emphasize this enough. We spent two days hiking on the wall and there was almost no one around. The only time we ran into other tourists was near the end of our hike on the first day when we got close to the section where we hike down. It was beautiful and we got to enjoy it without the stress of trying to walk around other people. This was such an epic experience.

Our guide was Rocky and our driver was Wu. Both were fantastic! We had such a good time with both of them and they were so helpful to us throughout the experience and with other tips around Beijing. I highly recommend them both as guides.

You stay overnight in a local, authentic guest house. This was such an interesting experience and you got to eat all local foods as well as part of the tour.

You will not regret it! Thanks Rocky, Wu and Ricky for the experience!
