Awesome Adventure

From Jorge    Aug 11 2017
Exceeded expectations.
Service was above and beyond from start to finish. Fred (owner) gives you personal service and attention to all your personal needs. He help us book a trip to Xian from a different company and personally took us to the bank to get more money.
Jose Manuel, the tour guide. Very impressive young man. Very knowledgeable ...

Unforgettable experience!

From From Antje & Toine, The Netherlands    Jun 15 2017
We were a little hesitant to go on a 'group tour', because we don't really like big groups and guides who are overdoing things. Past experiences have made us a bit wary about this. We once had a guide in Central America who didn't stop talking for eight hours. Not one second. We really didn't know where to find her 'off-button'. In the beginning...

Great Hiking!

From Carla Lourenço    Apr 20 2017
I was traveling alone in Beijing and I was looking for going by myself to the great wall as well, but searching online and with friends i found that it would be really difficult to go to the wild parts of the wall alone. Definitely it was a great choice. We were a small group and it was incredible to see Jiankou part. Alone it would be impossibl...

Fabulous time on the Great Wall hike”

From Zoe    Apr 04 2017
I joined a group of 4 on a 2 day hike which included West Jiankou to East Jianklu to Mutianyu. We left Beijing at 9.30 and arrived at lunch about 11.30. The food was delicious and the range of dishes was great, especially as I have been travelling on my own. John the guide explained the history of the Great Wall and answered all other questions ...

Exceeded expectation!

From luke,queensland    Mar 30 2017
I did the 2 day hike of Jiankou-Jinshanling-Gubeikou on March 23-24th 2017. It was just my wife and myself. Everything about the trip they provided was spot on. It well exceeded my expectations. Communication leading up to the adventure was excellent. All the meals provided I thought were sensational. We enjoyed greatly the company of our guide ...

Exceptional communication and fantastic trip.

From RyansFather Beaverton, Oregon    Feb 17 2017
25 years ago I went on to China. At that time, movement around China was very limiting. So, I did a guided tour to see the highlights of China with the Great Wall being the big lure. Unfortunately, we went to Badalang with a way to overcrowded wall and spent just over an hour on the wall. If that wasn't bad, we had spent more time "conveniently"...

Jiankou Overnight Camping Trip

From Andrea    Feb 17 2017
A friend of mine recommended China Hiking for an overnight camping trip at the Great Wall, and I'm so glad she did! I've been traveling in Asia for two and a half months and have had many wonderful experiences, but this one takes the cake. Everything about this was so well organized from beginning to end. Heidi met me right the subway exit and b...

Jiankou Overnight

From Maureen Singapore,    Feb 17 2017
I have been living in Beijing for 12 years and experienced all sorts of Great Wall trek in the past decade. Having lived in China that long, I always thought I knew better and had never went on a packaged tour... I was wrong... My friend and I signed up with China Hiking as we didn't like the hassle of a last minute planning. We initially signed...

Wouldn\'t want to see the wall any other way

From Laura    Feb 17 2017
This trip was the highlight of our trip to China. The whole team were so kind and helpful. Always having at least two guides with our small group meant everyone was able to hike at their own pace. We ate at fantastic local restaurants (all included in the price of the trip) except for the night we camped when Jamie cooked an amazing meal around ...

Geweldige ervaring

From Mieke    Feb 17 2017
Eigenlijk alles wat bij de trekking beschreven wordt is waargemaakt tijdens de tocht. Afwisselende stukken gelopen, zo goed als geen andere lopers op het stuk wat wij gelopen hebben, goede accomodatie en het lekkerste eten wat ik gedurende mijn reis naar China gegeten heb. Communicatie vooraf is uitstekend, en de organisatie is flexibel. Zeer go...

China Hiking Great Wall Trip - highlight of my holiday

From VinnyFlab London, United Kingdom    Feb 17 2017
It was fabulous to walk on unrestored sections of the Great Wall of China and see it snaking off into the distance on the crest of ridges.

I did a 2 day hiking / camping trip with China Hiking and we were taken care of from start to finish. The evening meal (including pork and chestnuts) on top of the wall under the stars was pretty special. T...

Loved the hike

From US New York    Feb 17 2017
We booked the 1 day trip last minute because we didn't want to navigate getting to the wall ourselves. We had very low expectations -- after a week in Beijing being exposed to China's mass tourism, we thought we'd be surrounded by hundreds of people at the wall.

The van arrived on time and took us and a few others to a remote village for lunch...

a trip to remember

From Federita Rimini, Italy    Feb 17 2017
Everything was perfect and as described. Hiking was a bit hard but i was expecting it.

A non touristic way to explore the great wall

Visited August 2016

Very well organised

From Zwinky Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia    Feb 17 2017
We booked a 6 hour hike on the great wall. All was very well organized even before hand, Fred and Heidi would answer my emails almost immediately and answer all my questions. The tour guide spoke good English. I didn't expect much of lunch but it was delicious.

Perfect way to discover the Great Wall of China

From ralphh    Feb 17 2017
First of all I want to point out that the team of china-hiking is great: Heidi and Fred are caring a lot about their customers and they try to do everything possible in order to make them happy! John is how you picture a perfect tour-guide: very social, knowledgeable and funny; not only does he know much about the Great Wall and China but he's a...
