Simply Amazing

From Gill, Farnham UK    Apr 25 2016
As others have already said and l can only confirm , the trip to the Jinshanling Gubeiko section of the Great Wall is absolutely phenomenal in every respect. It takes over 2 hours each way to get there, but the journey is definitely worth it.
John was a great guide, solicitous and attentive. At first we declined the walking poles, but we were so...

Fantastic day

From FabrizioItaly Italy    Apr 25 2016
We had a great day in the section from Jinshanling to Gubeikou.
We were lucky as the perfect weather and the fruit trees blooming made the landscape incredible.
Since the first contacts by mail, until the end of the tour (we made a private one), everything was conducted in a very professional way both by Fred, by the guide and the driver.

The best part of my trip!

From Chris Washington    Apr 25 2016
China Hiking planned the perfect excursion, ours from Jinshanling (a restored, more trafficked part of the Great Wall) to Gubeikou (a wild section in which we were the only hikers/visitors there!). Owners Fred and Heidi actually created this trip around the dates that I was available, which was simply going above and beyond--I was amazed and gra...

Amazing Adventure & Memorable Homestay

From Alleycat San Francisco, California    Apr 25 2016
I'm so happy I decided to sign up for a hike with ChinaHiking. The hike was breathtaking—I've never felt so secluded in China (the world's most populated country on planet Earth!) John was a wonderful guide, sharing lots of history about the wall and insights about Chinese culture. The homestay was incredibly memorable—I really enjoyed experienc...

Amazing and unforgettable of Great Wall

From Summer,Beijing, China    Apr 25 2016
I have been to Water Great Wall before and I didn't expect it could be so amazing this time when I joined the trip with other 20s people. As a Chinese, I feel that's the real great wall, barely people besides us, the cold wind and the broken stone, I can not call it nature, but somehow it is nature of history, like when I was in Rome, imagining ...

Incredible experience of the Great Wall

From cathrynarch Johannesburg, South Africa    Apr 25 2016
This was absolutely one of the highlights of my trip to China. We hiked from Jiankou to Mutianyu, through the snow and stunning scenery. Our guide, John, was helpful and informative, providing us with walking sticks and crampons to help us walk in the icy conditions. I highly recommend ChinaHiking for an off-the-beaten track, sublime experience ...

Great trek on the wall

From Marion Hong Kong, China    Apr 25 2016
We did a 2 days 1 night trek on the wall with our 2 kids. The guides were nice, the views beautiful and even the food at the camp was very good. Our 2 kids (11 and 14) also loved it. Highly recommended.

ChinaHiking

From richard Brooklyn    Apr 25 2016
You can believe all the positive comments made. My addition: I chose the "wild wall" day hike (Jiankou to Mutianyu) and it was the right choice for the adventurous. I would (and may) do it again, this time camping. But it is also good to know I am a 70 year old male and had just hiked the Utah canyon lands for two weeks prior this trip, thinking...

Great escape from Beijing city

From jehanne Singapore    Apr 25 2016
My boyfriend and I took a trip with ChinaHiking and enjoyed it very much. Heidi was extremely excellent as a guide, and really at home in the mountains. If you need a break from the city OR want to see the Great Wall the best way, go with Fred & Heidi.

Amazing tour!

From flowergrieco Buenos Aires, Argentina    Apr 25 2016
Heidi and Fred were amazing and their tour to Jiankou-Mutianyu was exactly what I expected from the Great Wall. I had huge expectations and the tour totally fulfilled them!
The wild wall is really worth the effort; it was the best choice I could take. Colin was also a great guide, very cool, and lunch at a local house was very good. It's overall...

Amazing unrestored Great wall hikes

From Rayray , Shenyang, China.    Apr 25 2016
Fred & Heidi have continuously given me a great service and adventure on some of the most remote and beautiful sections of the wall. We meet at a convenient time at the Llama temple subway entrance (9:30am - not too early or late. Just right to grab a coffee before the trip), hop on the minivan which takes us to a secluded farmhouse for lunch (w...

Great Wall camping

From Devin Beijing, China    Apr 25 2016
This looked really great from the online description - camping overnight in the forest around the great wall, with all the food and gear prepared for me? Awesome! And then I got there, and it was even better!

Fred was a great guide, and the other people helping to make the trip work were great too. We ate in a small village, visited some farme...
