Awesome trip!

From criss Middelburg, The Netherlands    May 09 2016
So we drive out of Beijing, and Fred points. It's the Wall. It's covered in people. "See over there?'. I nod. I see. Oh dear. "Well, we're definitely not going there." Oh, thank god.
In stead, what we get is an awesome authentic Chinese lunch with some really nice people, and a walk on the wall with no more than seven other people. And that's a...

Great walk on a little visited part of the Great Wall

From ruby Seattle    May 09 2016
We've been to three other parts of the Great Wall over the past 20 years but this was the most enjoyable and the most educational. Most enjoyable because the only other tourists were a small group of locals who were bringing their visiting French guest to their favorite part of the wall. Most educational because you could really see just how the...

Awesome!

The old part of the great wall...

From philiph Beijing, China    May 09 2016
One of the greatest trips I've ever done. These unique views from the great wall have been unbelievable. A trip that I would definitely do again.

Wonderful end to a trip of a lifetime.

From glog Weston, Connecticut    May 09 2016
Hiking with Fred and Heidi was a wonderful end to an altogether amazing hiking and biking trip around China. We planned our trip to alternate time in Hong Kong, Chengdu, Xian and Beijing with Hiking and biking trips interspersed. Our hike was a wonderful antidote to the hustle and bustle of the city. Pick up and transfer to the trailhead went sm...

Wonderful outing!

From Linnea Albuquerque, New Mexico    May 09 2016
We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Fred and Heidi, walking on a rather remote, spectacular, and quiet portion of the Great Wall. It was during the National Holiday, and we hoped to escape crowds, and we did. Fred and Heidi also allowed us to customize our tour to stay an extra day on our own, which made our time on the Wall even more special. F...

Sunrise on the wall with no other tourists in sight

From Jonathan    May 09 2016
Give Fred a call (number on the website), he speaks perfect English and is pretty cool. We hiked with a small group, a fantastic guide, and pretty much the most authentic meal I had in China on the Wall. There were no other tourists (or any other people) where we were and the hike wasn't too challenging, although I was definitely tired by the en...

From Geoffrey G Lorraine, France    May 09 2016
Fred et Heidi nous ont fait découvrir le tronçon jianguomen en Avril 2014.
Une magnifique ballade en dehors des sentiers touristiques.
Le repas dans le petit village avec le groupe était super conviviale et copieux.
Superbe équipe et organisation.

Amazing hike on the Great Wall of China

From lyon Hong Kong, China    May 09 2016
Highly recommend this 2-day hiking trip to discover the history of the Great Wall of China. The hikes were very much accessible to our 3 children (11, 9, 8 yo) and our guide was very good at explaining the history behind each section to both children and adults. We slept in a very clean farmhouse where the food was so good and so fresh. We'll ke...

Thanks so much for a wonderful day of hiking

From Ron and Regina    May 08 2016
John, Fred and Heidi,
Thanks so much for a wonderful day of hiking - it was an incredible trip and now ranks as our favorite of many hikes on the wall. Everything seemed to work out great with all the arrangements from meeting at the Lama Temple to the drop off. The weather worked out perfect for the two days as well as good visibility. The s...

Loved it!

From scream Hong Kong, China    May 04 2016
Camping on the Great Wall. No really, ON the Great Wall. How fab is that!? Had a great time -- the folks at China Hiking know where to go, what to take, and how to get there -- away from the masses that head to Badaling, etc. An amazing experience I'd recommend it to anyone -- in fact, I hope to do a repeat visit next time I get to Beijing. Go!!...

A premium off-the beaten path experience

From Julia    May 04 2016
We have traveled around China for 2 weeks and this experience was far the BEST! Originally we wanted to participate in another tour (the Boarder defense) but as there were not enough people signed for this tour, we were offered to participate in the Jiankou trip. The trip was just amazing, really no other tourists, no one around us during the wh...

Excellent, non-touristy hike of the Great Wall

From Naiden New York City, New York    May 04 2016
We just did an overnight hiking tour of the Gubeikou portion of the wall with ChinaHiking. From my first inquiry email, Fred was incredibly responsive and helpful. Out of a couple of different companies that I contacted for quotes, ChinaHiking was also the best value.

The actual tour also delivered. We had a delicious homemade lunch at a farmh...
