had a great one-day hike on the great wall. I was looking for a company that offered a challenging hike on the great wall. I didn't regret choosing The Great Wall Adventure Club. not only did i get a challenging hike, but also a great experience. I highly recommend this company. Everything worked according to the plan :-)

I had a brilliant day organised by Great Wall Adventure Cub. Emails were responded to extremely promptly which gave me great confidence in them, this was important as I was travelling alone and this was my first trip to China. Oliver and my driver arrived promptly and we had an amazing morning walking from Gubeikou to Jingshanling, followed by a lovely lunch at a local restaurant. Oliver was extremely knowledgeable and friendly making it a very relaxing day. Thanks all for making it such an amazing day, I'm still pinching myself that I was there!!

This was a once in a lifetime experience I'll never forget. Aaron and a driver met us at our hotel in the morning and we drove for about an hour and a half to a small town where we picked up a rustic and pretty challenging trail for our one hour hike up to an un-restored part of the Great Wall. I'm thankful I'm in pretty good physical condition otherwise it could have been an issue......we hiked for an hour straight on some rugged terrain with only a few brief rests. Once at the Wall, it was absolutely breath-taking. Because we were on a portion of the wall that had not been restored, it felt more historic (if you will.) And we only encountered a few other small groups. We continued to hike on the wall and eventually came to the restored section of the Wall and were met with other visitors. We took a cable car lift back down the mountain and then stopped at a charming Eco-Retreat Cafe for lunch ( Brickyard Eco-Retreat at Mutianyu Great Wall.) Aaron was a great guide: knowledgable about the Great Wall as well as the accompanying history.

Greetings, and thank you for taking the time to write your review! We are positively thrilled to hear about your experience with us, and we are overjoyed to learn that you feel the same way about the Great Wall as we do. After your hike I'm sure you'll agree that hiking the unrestored "wild wall" is the only way to go! We are also encouraged by your remarks about your tour guide, Aaron. We give our guides the most strenuous training in the business, so to see it pay off with your experience is rather rewarding for us, so thank you for that. We know that your time with us was a positive one, but if you have any feedback on how your Great Wall experience could have been even better then we would love to hear back from you. Thank you for putting your trust in Great Wall Adventure Club!

The whole experience was once in a lifetime! Our guide Arron was great. He and the driver picked us up from our hotel in the morning and was kind and friendly. He was very informative and knowledgeable, and let us know what to expect in our day. As for the wall, we hiked up from jingshanling and got to see some of the most amazing views I've ever seen. Arron was great about going at our pace so we could stop and take pictures, take in the view, or rest. Because it was Chinese New Years Eve the day of our trip, all of the surrounding restruants were closed, we let Arron know we wanted to try Peking Duck while in Beijing and he was excellent about finding us an alternative close to our hotel. If you're planning a trip to the Great Wall, I would definitely recommend this company, it helped make our trip one I'll never forget!

Camping on the Great Wall is a once in a lifetime experience, and our tour was perfectly set up, starting out on a more remote part of the wall, sleeping in a guard tower and then hiking toward the more touristy area of Mutianyu on the second day. We loved our trip as a group of 7. The only downside was our guide didn't seem to have a lot of factual information (he actually told us the wall was twice as long as it actually is, so we questioned him the rest of the time). He was nice though and we had a lot of fun!
