Views and seclusion

From Hamish R    Jul 25 2018
Went with China hiking for a 2 day hike. These guys were fantastic. Our guide J.I. was amazing, super easy to get along with. If you want spectacular views of the wall and surrounding area that you have to earn with a decent hike, then this is for you. I don't often write reviews, but this experience is something that you should not miss out on....

Great two day hiking on the wall

From Jenna S    Jul 25 2018
My husband and I booked this ages ago as the last part of our honeymoon. Chloe who organised everything prior to the trip was so helpful. We had huge bags with us and Chloe spent a long time trying to organise this for us and work out where we could leave them. She also had to deal with loads of emails from me!!

The hike itself was also great....

Friendly, reliable, great experience!

From andt3 Rome, Italy    Jul 25 2018
We decided to take the Jiankou to Mutianyu hike while we were already in Beijing, and just gave a call to Fred the day before the hike: everything worked out really smoothly, and we had a lot of fun!
J.I was waiting for us with the driver at the meeting point, and after a ~ 1h drive we stopped for lunch close to the start of the trail. J.I has b...

Unbelieveable Great Wall Hiking and Camping trip!!

From Andy T    Jul 25 2018
We went on a 2 day Hiking and Camping trip to Jiankou and it was absolutely fantastic!!

We had been to a different (touristy) section of the wall before, and as we were having family visit us from England we wanted to find something a bit more special, rustic and less crowded and Oh boy we got all of that in spades!

Fred and Heidi were extreme...

Views others don\'t get to see

From Roderick M Montreal, Canada    Jul 25 2018
I took part in a two day camping trip on the unrestored Jiankou section and the restored Huanghuacheng section. Even though it rained heavily the first day, it was still a unique experience to hike on the unrestored section in that weather. Their contingency plan for heavy rain is to stay at a nearby farmhouse where you can take a warm shower, c...

Jiankou hiking

From Travis B    Jul 25 2018
I went for the Jiankou to Mutianyu hike in June. It was a great hike. The meetup was easy, great lunch, friendly English speaking tour guide.

Amazing 3 day hike in different parts of the Great Wall

From Nicola S    Jul 18 2018
We did a 3-day private tour hiking The Great Wall and it was absolutely amazing. Our guide John was so friendly and knowledgeable, it wouldn't have been the same without him. The farm stay accommodation was also very good. Totally recommended China Hiking to arrange your tour. There was a great mix of unrestored parts and restored parts of the w...

I will remember the tour for the rest of my life

From arq16 Sydney, Australia    Jul 12 2018
I did the great wall tour with China Hiking. They truly went above the call of duty and did more than they were supposed to, and I can't recommend this company enough! I was issued the wrong visa to come to China (I was issued a family visa, when I was meant to be issued a tourist visa), so Immigration needed to confirm I was a genuine tourist, ...

We had the wall all to ourselves!

From frewenh Brisbane, Australia    Jul 12 2018
This was a brilliant day tour to do. We had one of the best meals of our trip in a farmhouse before our walk. We hiked the 8km which had spectacular views. There was a thunderstorm but we took shelter in a tower until l it passed. Our guide, John, really knew his history and answered all our questions. Would highly recommend this company!

An amazing experience - West Jiankou to East Jiankou 2 day hike

From Martin C    Jul 12 2018
We had an incredible experience, made all the better by our guide John. He was very knowledgeable and always full of energy.
As relatively inexperienced hikers; the walk was challenging in parts on the first day, largely due to the heat and lack of shade, but was very doable.
It was incredible waking up for sunrise on top of the Great Wall and...

Great Wall Hike June 2

From 430lori    Jul 12 2018
The Great Wall is not to be missed if you are traveling around China and these guys offer a great value and experience. The lunch provided was one of the best I had in China and the staff who hiked with us was attentive, patient, and knowledgeable. If I am fortunate to get back to China I will definitely hike with this outfit again.

Jiankou to Mutianyu

From Weili S    Jul 12 2018
This is the best Great Wall hiking experience I have ever had. Heidi was very helpful before the trip to make sure we know what to do. The group is small (6 people). Our guide John is extremely knowledgable and tour is well-organized. There were no crowds and lines of tourist. The hiking was beautiful. I will be back again for the two day trekki...

Jiankou to Mutianyu (1 Day) - Highly recommended

From Laurie J Airdrie, Canada    Jul 06 2018
My hike on the Great Wall was one of the things that I was most looking forward to doing on my recent trip to China and it was just as amazing as I hoped! I was happy to find an itinerary with China Hiking that allowed me to do a one-day trip that showcased both the "old" and the "new" sections of the wall. I am not a huge fan of crowds, so I wa...

Partitipated in a one day hiking trip from jiankou to mutianyu with a small and friendly group. Our guide John has a lot of knowledge of Chinese history and culture. One of the highlights of my trip to China.
