We booked a private tour for the two of us. Explicit request was that (1) we want to do real trekking and not just take a lift to the top of the Wall and (2) we desperately want to avoid crowds and have nice pictures at the sunset. Although the trip was rather expensive, we are very happy with the service. Had wonderful day and beautiful pictures. Strongly recommend.
Hi Michal, I’m glad you had a good Great Wall experience! You made the right choice in choosing a rugged Great Wall trek instead of being surrounded by throngs of tourists. I think you’d agree that it makes for a far more intimate and enjoyable tour. In regards to the price, I know it is priced relatively high, but we price our tours with a number of factors in mind, including the high cost of Chinese gas, exorbitant tolls on the highways we need to use to reach the Great Wall, training our guides and drivers to be the best in the business, as well as dealing with the omnipresent Chinese bureaucracy. We hope you understand, as we also hope that the price was worth the experience. If you have any comments or suggestions on how your tour could have been better than we would really appreciate your feedback. Thank you for putting your trust in Great Wall Adventure Club!
