We got plenty of time to explore the wall. A little too much even. The tour guide was super friendly! If you’re visiting the wall, this surely is the best way!!!

We were very glad indeed we chose to take this trip, even though it nearly broke us. This part of the Great Wall is over two hours by coach from Beijing, but worth it for less other travellers. I don't think we realised when we...More

Amazing tour! Definitely worth the extra travel time for the views and no crowds. And Jen is the best guide! She also has a lot of great tips for the rest of your Beijing trip. Do it!

They have multiple great Wall tours, but take the 3rd option, it's in the middle of nowhere on the proper great Wall, actual ruins. It's about 40 USD, take food and water with you. Also, it's quite difficult, lots of... More

Hi Dik, They do not arrange for pick up. Meeting point is at Beijing Downtown Backpackers Tour office at Nanlouguxiang. Or maybe u can email them to find out as well. Hope my reply helps. Cheers, Claire
