Jinshanling Great Wall to Gubeikou Great Wall Hike

From PhilHitchin1    Dec 05 2018
I would thoroughly recommend this hike. It was on restored and unrestored sections of the wall. China Hiking were very well organised, the transport all worked well, the lunch time break was great and the guides were very informative and helpful. This was probably the high light of our China trip.

Amazing tour, well prepared, experienced and patient staff

From Wander33926523978    Dec 05 2018
Hiking and camping at the great wall was an amazing experience - the tour, the team of 14 people, our experienced, patient, friendly and humorous guides (Dan and Jamie), the local dining, the help prior to our trip - everything was amazing and worth doing again. Well planned! Thank you China-hiking. Thank you Dan and Jamie. Thank you Fred and He...

Fantastic Experience!

From Dale M    Dec 05 2018
I did the one-day Great Wall hike from Jiankou to Mutianyu in early September. I highly recommend this hike for anyone with limited time but wants to see an extended portion of the wall. After a ~2 hour drive to Jiankou, we were served a very good lunch, and then hiked up the mountain to get access to the wall. THe hike on the wall itself was sp...

Great Wall 13k hike and tent camping

From Sightseer64524682986    Dec 05 2018
It was a once in a lifetime opportunity to hike on and along the Great Wall of China. Being able to tent camp right next to the wall and open your tent to a gorgeous sunrise on the Great Wall was unreal. Home cooked meals before and after hiking, and Our guide was so friendly and helpful too. Definitely worth the trip!

Amazing and a must do!

From JG85aussie    Dec 05 2018
A must do adventure and you couldn't be with a better hiking operator! The guide accommodated everyone's fitness levels and kept it interesting with the history of the wall at break points during the hike. Nothing was rushed and there was always time allowed for grabbing photos. Highly recommend starting on the unrestored section for the authent...

Best experience in China

From Sabine E    Dec 05 2018
This trip was by far the highlight of my whole month travelling through China. I loved the fact that we were camping right next to the wall. The tourguide was speaking great English, the schedule was nicely planned, all went really smooth. Great trek, totally recommendable!!

An amazingly enjoyable experience and an achievement to remember.

From gerardreal    Dec 05 2018
Great adventure and the experience of a lifetime as not only did we hike the Great Wall, but we did it as a father and son trip. This was a good tough hike away from all the crowds, indeed we only met a handful of people all day. Two hour bus ride followed by lunch in a local farmhouse, which was vital fuel for the climb ahead. No wasted side tr...

GREAT Tour!

From KateFoxHorstman    Dec 05 2018
This tour was much more than I expected and a great experience. We met at a very easy spot, were driven to lunch near the wall. During the drive, we heard a lot about the wall and got to ask our questions. Lunch was delicious and hosted by a family at their home. Then we hiked for a few hours ON the wall. Through guard towers and on the wall its...

An experience not to be missed..

From KahHengLau    Dec 05 2018
It was my first time hiking up an unrestored segment of the Great Wall and... what an experience it was!!

Besides the guides being very hospitable and friendly, they are very knowledgeable and know the history of the segment of the Wall segments well.

We were all served with magnificent views of the moubtain ranges, coupled with the histor...

I still think about this experience all the time.

From 133niklass    Dec 05 2018
Both my friends and I aren’t regular hikers. Based on a recommendation from a mutual friend of ours, we took a two day hike of the wall. I had visited the wall once before, so I thought I knew what to expect. But I really didn’t. This was way, way better than I could imagine!

It was a fantastic opportunity to experience Chinese nature and cul...

Fantastic Guided Great Wall Day Hike!

From Kiahbird    Dec 05 2018
We had an absolutely fabulous time on a one-day hike from Jiankou to Mutianyu with China Hiking, from start to finish. China Hiking staff quickly found us at our meeting point in Beijing and shepherded us to our van. Our guide, John, shared lots of valuable and interesting information on the history of the Great Wall during our drive to the moun...

Great Trip

From Shane H    Dec 05 2018
Had a fantastic time with China hiking. Great guides with brilliant knowledge of the wall take you away from the crowds at the restored sections to the unrestored sections that we had all to ourselves. Totally recommend this as your view of viewing the Great Wall of China.

Fantastic trip on the ‘wild’ wall

From May000    Dec 05 2018
Had a wonderful day trip out to the wall. It began with a delicious lunch and then a steep hike up. Once we reached the wall, there were spectacular views. Really helpful and knowledgeable guides and visited a much less touristy part of the wall, which meant we didn’t see any other tourists all day. Great trip, couldn’t recommend it enough. Than...

Wonderful trekking experience: Jiankou - Jinshanling - Gubeikou Great Wall Trekking (2 days)

From Chrisd2323    Dec 05 2018
My teenage son and I did this two-day trek in late November and absolutely loved it--by far the highlight of our China tip! Our guide John was fantastic--informative and kind, an all-around wonderful guide. We had very different experiences on the wall over the two days. We started at Jiankou, which was very remote (we didn't see any other hiker...

Hiking and Camping on the Great Wall of China

From JanandTonyGetSmart    Nov 07 2018
This was an experience of a lifetime. We were collected in Beijing and driven a few hours away to a less touristy part of the wall. We hiked the wall for the rest of the day and then camped next to the wall for the night then hiked back to our pick up point for the journey home the next morning. The food was sensational, the guides helpful and k...
