Fabulous hike with excellent guides, delicious meals, and engaging fellow travelers

From AndrewN848    Sep 21 2018
We had a wonderful time on our Great Wall hike! Very informative and helpful guides. These sections of the wall provided a nice contrast—part is unrestored, and part is restored, so you get a taste of both. Incredible views all along the route. Overnight you can camp literally next to the wall or sleep at a farmhouse nearby. We enjoyed meeting a...

Amazing trip with dedicated guides and a fun atmosphere!

Everything was perfect on this trip the hike, the guides, the scenery, and the people! Definitely recommend ChinaHiking!

An excellent hiking experience

From John V    Sep 14 2018
Fantastic and well organised hike.

We did the Jiankou great wall 2 day hike.

We could not recomend this hike or this company more. Everything was well organised, and our guide Jamie was great. Doing this hike and sleeping on the great wall was definately one of the highlights of our trip.

Brilliant Trip!

From lkb732 Brighton    Sep 14 2018
Obviously the scenery was sublime as expected, but China Hiking were fantastic. Easy to organise, good equipment, fantastic guides (especially the hilarious John!) and drivers and great food too. Highly recommended.


From mist683 Prague, Czech Republic    Sep 14 2018
Really exceeded my expectations. Everything went smooth. Tourist guides were talkative (in english). If am going to visit China again, another trip from chinahiking will be in my interest.

Just too beautiful

From Melanie F    Sep 14 2018
Such a beautiful place and just incredible to walk on those stones and bricks, the age and craft showing just brilliantly with the looming forest. Guide Jaime had such great insights into the natural and human history of the area. So fun!!!

Unforgettable hike

From Lisanne v Maasbracht, The Netherlands    Sep 14 2018
We did a fantastic Great Wall hike of 2 days and did not see any other tourists. Because of the rain we could not camp on the wall, but they took good care of us in the farmhouse. The guide had a lot of knowledge about Chinese history. Unforgettable hike.

Best tour I\'ve ever done!

From louprince73 Cairns, Australia    Sep 14 2018
HI,I did the 2 day 1 night camping on the Great Wall with J.I. & Zhangpeng. It was by far the best tour I have ever done, yes the wall is interesting and being able to camp the night was superb but it was more how J.I. & Zhangpeng made the tour so welcoming and supportive that was the highlight. With a small group of 9 we had a great time, I and...

Highlight of Beijing

From EthanSteimel New York City, New York    Sep 14 2018
Fantastic hike. We went on a cloudy day so didn't get to see the wall stretch on forever. But the experience was the highlight of our trip to China.

My wife and I went with John Isaiah as a guide. He was friendly and great. He met us at the subway stop, we drove to a farmhouse for lunch, hiked an hour to the wall, along the wall three hours, an...

Memorable in Many Ways

From visagegyc colorado    Sep 14 2018
Turns out I had posted this on the wrong site! Apologies to Fred and Heidi and the excellent guides for this hike in early August.
Hard to describe the experience in terms of beauty and spiritual/emotional impact. A once in a lifetime event...
The nitty-gritty: Did the day hike Gubeikou route with about 12 others in the group. Easy meet up at t...

Excellent one day hike

From Julia A London, United Kingdom    Sep 06 2018
This is a fantastic one day hike to do on the Great Wall if you have limited time and it's your first time there. If you do have more time, definitely drop Fred a line and he will make sure you book on the right trip for your hiking ability and that you see what you came for. This hike starts out on the unrestored section - we had a lovely lunch...

A highly recommended hugely enjoyable Great Wall experience

From C6532XEmargaret London, United Kingdom    Sep 06 2018
Our family of five (with three teens) had a great hiking and camping trip on two quiet and very beautiful parts of the Great Wall. Our guide John was amazingly knowledgeable about the history of the Wall, sensitive to different members of our party's needs, very flexible and great fun. Working closely with Fred and his wife back at base (who lia...
