A really good day out, exactly as advertised. Everything was well planned, Sonia was a great guide, the walk to the wall and lunch in a local village was really good. On the wall we had amazing views, nobody around, could just the birds singing! I went with 2 colleagues and would really recommend it to others

I have been on 3 hikes with China Travellers and they were all really interesting. We went to Gubeikou  and stayed overnight in a local farmhouse which was clean and comfortable and great food.We walked through a local village and also along the Wall.
I also did 9 Eye Tower at Sihai and had a tofu hot pot for lunch at a local house. Amazing food.
The last hike was to Jiankou which had great scenery and again we had lunch at a local house for.The food is so good.
For 2 of the hikes we met at Dongzhimen and used the bus and then a miambao chi! That  was an experience! The other hike we used a car from Beijing for the day.
Sonia is a very good guide and knows many interesting places where most foreigners do not go. If you like adventure and what to see The Great Wall that many foreigners do not see,then go with China Travellers. You will have a lot of fun and an experience to remember.

Having lived in Beijing for more than a year, I've checked out all the various options for hiking here. And China Travellers is the best of the lot because:

a) great hiking locations- they wont take you to the same old well-worn hiking trail. they spend time and effort to scout new routes which are not overrun with tourists b) great company - sonia is a passionate hiker and a hike with her can turn into a fascinating insight into China. you might start out with a guide and return with a friend! c) personal attention- so its small groups, like-minded hikers and attention to details

overall- a very good option not only for tourists, but also for long time beijing residents who want to get away from the same old routine. strongly recommended

Sonya was amazing! She had everything planned and taken care of so all I needed to do was show up. She even called afterward to make sure I got home safely. The place where we had lunch was all natural/organic and probably the best food I have had since I arrived in China four months ago. Sonya is also studying medicine - pretty handy when you hike level 3 trails! I completely recommend her!
