Well worth doing, even if history, photography and admiring the scenery is not for you. Yes you can queue for tickets at peak times, but the sales are efficient. The one-way system means the lowest parts are seen first (seaward side) and you can opt out at two points before the steepest parts.

There are a few tiny tourist shops on the route and at least two places to stop for a drink.

If it rains as it did last week take shelter, do not try to keep going - why? The pathway gets very slippery and it's best to be safe. My wife watched the rain cascade off and flow along the pathway.

Took us a good 2 hours to walk this wall. We r not in the greatest physical shape [58&56] and it was difficult at times, Some steep stairs. A few areas along the way to stop for a drink & or rest and we needed it :) But it was worth every minute. A must see for all! We took some beautiful pictures too. Wish we had had more time, we were off of a cruise shop. Would definintely go back to see more.

It was hot and dry and exhusted the battery of my camera! We took 2 1/2 -3 hours, but we also stopped to picnic so we could soak it in. My Mom describes it this way, "52, 42, 28, 26, 16..." She's a bean counter. =)

We loved the views and the history. It is hilly and lots of steps so take water! There was nothing we didnt like.

A fantastic sightseeing trip and well worth the admission fee but dont waste your money on the available hearing guides which you can buy on the stairwells
