Sunset hiking trip- so much fun!

From trystanhaney Dallas, Texas    Jun 12 2018
I did the day hiking trip and it was by far my favorite part of my vacation! We hiked the unrestored part of the Wall and watched the sunset. It was an amazing experience, the hiking guide was awesome and I highly recommend it!

2D1N Camping trip at Jiankou section

From Mervin F    Jun 12 2018
Really fun experience that I will look back and rejoice on. The guides Jimmy and JI were accomodating and friendly. This is an opportunity to go off the beaten tracks and immerse yourself in the "real" great wall.

10km Great Wall Hike - old and new sections

From grs331 Edmonton, Canada    Jun 12 2018
I went on this hike June 1, 2018 and it was everything I could hope for and more. Delicious local meal to start, followed by an excellent guided hike through old and restored sections of the wall.

2 day Jiankou to Huanghuacheng trekking/camping

From Carissa C    Jun 11 2018
This was an incredible way to experience the Great Wall. Fred was super helpful getting everything planned for our trip. The guides were very helpful and gave a great historical overview of the Wall. It was a fair amount of hiking, but not strenuous. We were able to see the historic part of the wall and a restored part. We did not see any other ...

Fantastic Great Wall Hike

From emmaleotierose Belleville, Canada    Jun 11 2018
We had a great hike with this tour group. Our guide John was super knowledgeable and was very good at answering questions that we had. A lot of beautiful views along the hike! The farmhouse where we stayed the night was basic but great for one night. They had fridge full of beer that cost somewhere btw 8-10 yuan. Lunch and dinner were excellent ...

Jiankou to Mutianyu (1 Day Hike)

From sfong2 Oakland, California    Jun 11 2018
I highly recommend this hike (from Jiankou to Mutianyu). It was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. We met the group at a subway stop in Beijing, hopped in a van, and rode to the start of the hike (an hour or so outside of Beijing). We ate lunch at the foot of the mountains before beginning the trek up to the wall. We hiked uphill fo...

Absolutely stunning trip and great team - highly recommend!

From Jess L    Jun 11 2018
I did a one day hike (Founder's favorite sunset hike) and was completely blown away. It was so much better than I imagined. We met at the Lama Temple metro stop, drove for about two hours, stopped for a good lunch at a farmhouse, and then began the hike, which took about 3-4 hrs and was 8 km. I was a bit shocked at how difficult the hike was - w...

West Jiankou to East Jiankou to Mutianyu (2 days,1 night)

From getgoingkaren South Lake Tahoe, California    Jun 11 2018
Ours was a once-in-a-lifetime trip. The wind blew the smog out of the whole valley and you could see for miles in every direction. Camping in the guard towers with the stars shining above was spectacular. John and Mamo were fantastic guides and paced the trip really well. They were really knowledgeable about the history of the wall and were pati...

A great day

From Lizzie889 Melbourne, Australia    Jun 11 2018
A suberb day with our guide, John. Brilliant organisation, delicious lunch and great camaraderie. Sore legs today but worth it. Highly recommended.

Once in a lifetime trip.

From Rachel S    Jun 11 2018
I camped with Fred and John and an amazing group of 6 other hikers on a two day camping trip. This was an amazing tour. Everyone was friendly and a lot of jokes and stories were shared. I was traveling by myself and this felt like a small family. The sights and food were amazing as well. The hike was challenging but manageable. I have already re...

Hike of a Lifetime

From Julie C    Jun 11 2018
I did the 2-day, one night hiking/camping trip from Gubeikou to Jinshanling. The trip was fantastic. Fred (one of the owners) and John were our guides, and they were very friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful, not to mention fun to talk with. The food was absolutely delicious. The hiking was challenging at times but we were never rushed - and we ...

Great 1 day hike

From Amy B    Jun 11 2018
Had a fantastic time hiking with my partner and around 10 others at the Jiankou section of the wall yesterday. Both of us had been to Beijing before and done so-so tours of the great wall (expensive, limited time at the wall, busy sections and unwanted 'shoppertunities'!) and this tour ended being exactly what we both wanted:

Pros:
