A fantastic experience, the highlight of our trip!

From IslaWithers York, United Kingdom    Mar 18 2016
We booked a trip to the Great Wall with Dandelion hiking to round off our holiday to China. I am so glad we did as it was one of the highlights of our trip and a great way to round it off. The organisers were absolutely fantastic and the communication prompt.

We weren't sure whether they would have room to store our big backpacks in the van so...

Highlight of our trip!

From Shan, Toronto, Canada    Mar 18 2016
Fred and Heidi put together a really great outing! It was very well organized and we had a very knowledgeable and accommodating guide. We hiked a remote part of the wall which required a bit of fitness, but they prepared us for this in advance. We needed some basic equipment like crampons and walking poles and this was provided.
Lunch was provid...

Fantastic experience

From Jonathan ,Seattle, Washington    Mar 18 2016
My brother, his girlfriend and I did the Jinshanling to Gubeikou hike last week and it was high on the list of life's good experiences. Our guide John was a wealth of information regarding Chinese history and how the Great Wall played a part of it. He started with giving us background on the van to the sight, and then continued throughout the da...

A wonderful time hiking with Heidi

Highlight of China

From MelToyer    Mar 18 2016
Winter is a magical time to visit with snow powdering the peaks. John was a knowledgable and enthusiastic guide. Perfect timing to enjoy the challenge of the hike but with plenty of photo opportunities. John provided crampons and stocks to ensure our comfort and safety.
I would go back and do exactly the same walk it was so great but hopefully ...

Well planned and very enjoyable hike!

From Varsam , Jakarta, Indonesia    Mar 18 2016
I went with 9 other people during one of the last hikes available since it would be too cold nearing winter. The trip was well planned, the big van that took us was very comfortable and all the food provided was tasty, we even cooked chestnuts on the bonfire. The trek itself was quite tiring but the view was stunning, the trees were turning red ...

Off the beaten path

From PYL,Paris, France    Mar 18 2016
We were very happy to get a chance to experience the wall with a different perspective. Walking on the Jiankou section was tough but fantastic. We were very lucky with the weather. Nice organisation, nice guides and best setting. Definitely worth the investment.

100% recommendable!

From drmsol, Buenos Aires, Argentina    Mar 18 2016
We booked “Jiankou to Mutianyu Great Wall hike 1 day” tour a couple of months in advance. We did not want to see the most crowded sections of the wall, and we thought that it was a good option… and we were right.
Our guide Heidi, a cheerful and kind girl, was very punctual. We met her and the rest of the group (two more people) at the accorded p...

Great trek on the wall

From Marion , Hong Kong, China    Mar 18 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.

The highlight of our China trip!

From N_poz    Mar 18 2016
We did an overnight camping and hiking tour in October. I had actually booked with a different company but they cancelled at the last minute due to the fact that rain was forecast. I was sooo disappointed, as this was what I was looking forward to most on my two week China trip. Anyway, someone from the first company let me know about this tour ...

Exactly what I expected from the the Great Wall

From Flor Grieco    Sep 30 2015
This trip is excellent. It is exactly was I expected from the Great Wall and from an off the beaten track tour. Fred was super nice, Colin was a great guide and the journey planned by Heidi and Fred was perfect -cool and not touristy, ideal for independent travellers. I will choose them again for my next trip to the Great Wall and will probably ...

The Great Wall at Wohushan with Dandelion Hiking(chinahiking)

From Johnny Truro, United Kingdom    Aug 17 2015
I enjoyed the camping at Wohushan great wall with Dandelion hiking so much in 2010 than I came back and did it again in 2011. It truly is one of my most special life experiences, and one that I highly recommend for those with a sense of adventure, a little fitness, and an openness to experience real, untouched China (both modern and ancient).

Great Tour and Value

From Vienna, Austria    Aug 16 2015
It was just awesome. I did the Chen Castle Hike + Sleeping on the Great Wall. All equipment is provided as well as food, drinks and transport. The Hike could have been a bit longer for my liking but was still good. Great view and really quite, away from all the tourist. I recommend to do more then only one night because hiking there gets you hoo...
