Fun and really well organised”

From Miguel M Jinan, China    Apr 25 2016
I went on the October, 3rd camping tour to Gubeikou and it was a great experience. Everything was really well planned and thought of: local guides, nice stretch of the wall with hardly any tourists (in spite of the fact that it was the national holiday week!), good food... Every thing was perfect! Fred was really nice and so too were the other p...

Best way to discover the Great Wall!

From Frédéric L Florennes, Belgium    Apr 25 2016
I chose the Jiankou hike, this is the best way to discover the Great Wall! It's in the middle of the forest in the mountains, away from the huge crowds of people. There was only us, the nature and the Great Wall in all its magnificence, going on and on for kilometers. A truly great experience that I recommend to everyone who likes hiking :)

Highlight of the trip, without a doubt!

From Richard H Calgary, Canada    Apr 25 2016
We (my wife and I) hiked the portion of the Great Wall from Jiankou to Mutianyu our first full day in China. This tour was absolutely fantastic. The pick up was easy to figure out, then we were off for a 2 hour drive to the starting location of the hike. When we got there, we were treated to a great lunch by local villagers, filled our back pack...

Amazing great wall camping trip!

From Lauren B Carlsbad, California    Apr 25 2016
My husband and I went on this camping trip in Aug 2015 and had an amazing time! The trip was really well paced, organized, and our guide Colin was very knowledgeable. We both really enjoyed being able to see both the restored and unrestored "wild" section of the wall. Camping under the stars and eating home cooked meals were amazing :)

Highlight of our China trip!

From heat Calgary, Canada    Apr 25 2016
This was an unbelievable tour! We met with great guides, drove out the wall and had a delicious family style lunch before continuing on to the wall. The wall was completely empty and we had the most amazing views with no people in our pictures! We were off the beaten track and it was worth it! The guides were so kind and knowledgable and we had ...

Best Great Wall Hiking tour!

From William Menlo Park, California    Apr 25 2016
I am just returning from my trip to Beijing.

I took the "Jinshanling Great Wall to Gubeikou Great Wall 1day" hike and can completely recommend it!

Thanks to Heidi for such an experience. The hike takes you through sparsely visited (yet even in Summer) parts of the Great Wall. You get to enjoy a incomparable view and a beautiful landscape. If y...

Experience A Different Great Wall

From Miimusa, Beijing, China    Mar 19 2016
Our company had an one day team building activity with the help from Fred and the team in the mid of Oct and I really believe Autumn is the most beautiful season in Beijing. The bus is clean, the food is good and the people are nice, we took a lot of wonderful photos during the trip. As a person born in Beijing, this's also my first time experie...

Incredible experience of the Great Wall

From Johann South Africa    Mar 18 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 ...

They talked about plans to visit other areas of China to open up their options for their comp...

Awesome tour of the wall

From Essleshal Brisbane, Australia    Mar 18 2016
We took the Jinshanling to Gubeikou tour, which was approx 12km, it was not as harsh as it sounds. Would highly recommend this group. We had lunch at a local farm house / restaurant which was great. Meeting points were easy to navigate and transit was efficent.

This part of the wall was both restored at the start and old sections as you go alon...

Badain Jaran Winter Desert Hike

From Owain,Christchurch, New Zealand    Mar 18 2016
An amazing experience. Me and my wife did the winter desert hike. Was absolutely fantastic. Walked about 4-6 hours a day over sand and ice. Good hearty food at each location. (If you got tired you could ride a camel or in a jeep.)

Fred and Heidi are very helpful and did a good job of looking after us all. Made a lot of good friends on the trip...
