Incredible overnight Great Wall hike

From Nina London, United Kingdo    Oct 28 2014
What can I say we've been in china 4 weeks and this is easily one of the best things we've done!

Fred our guide was great, creating the perfect relaxed and fun atmosphere for the group.

The part of the wall we went to we had all to ourselves and we literally couldn't believe the isolation and amazing views we were seeing. I got up at dawn for ...

Badain Jaran Desert, most beautiful hike in China!

From Jan Belgium    Oct 28 2014
We had already joined Fred & Heidi on a gorgeous Great Wall trekking (two days camping) and had enjoyed it so much we decided to book through their agency again and it was all perfect, just like the first time.
My parents and my parents-in-law were on a two-week visit in China and so we decided to take them out of Beijing for a week. Looking bac...

“A different visit to the great wall” JIANKOU WEST

From Michaellar Oslo, Norway    Oct 28 2014
In late May my travel partner and I decided to sign up for a two day long hike to the great wall through dandelion hiking. On beforehand we had few expectations, and we were a bit afraid that we wouldn't get what we paid for. Luckily, it turned out to be amazing and it was truly the highlight of our stay in Beijing! Our guides, Jan and Erhu, wer...

Wonderful tour guides

From Latourista Seattle, Washington    Oct 28 2014
I took my two kids ages 11 and 8 in early April on the Gubeikou section of the great wall. Fred and Heidi were very easy to get a hold of by e-mail and make arrangements with. Originally we wanted a 2 day hike but my son's bum knee made us decide on a day hike. We rode the subway and met the Dandelion Crew at one of the subway stops, and then we...

Ideal way to experience the Wall!

From laya Mokpo, South Korea    Oct 28 2014
I did an overnight 2 day hike with Fred and Jan and could not have been happier or recommend it highly enough!! They helped arrange a painless pick up from the airport for me, and we drove to a small village for a delicious lunch. The weather was far from perfect, but they helped make the best of it. We got a lot of time walking on unrestored pa...

1 day hike

From AenACard Philippines    Oct 27 2014
We're so happy that we choose this hike! On our way to the hiking spot, we passed by more popular parts of the wall, crowded with thousands of tourists. The hike is just so much more authentic and you can enjoy the magic of the wall alone.
We didn't do the camping (because we had already booked a hotel), but passed by the camping spot. If we'd g...

GUBEIKOU JINSANLING GREAT WALL AND CHENGDE”

From TRTL    Oct 27 2014
Amazing trip on the Gubeikou Jinshanling section of the great wall organized by fred and Heidi. Private car and driver from Beijing. Lunch at a farmhouse and then 3 and 1/2 hours walking on the wall. We met only 6 persons during the trip !! The following day in ChengDe and his wonderful temples and palace (by bicycle ) was great as well. Everyth...

highlight of my trip

From Montreal, Canada    Oct 27 2014
I was travelling alone to Beijing and wanted to experience the Great Wall in a non-touristy way, but didn't want to do a "private" tour. This small business was an incredible find. They were so relaxed and easy to connect with, and at the same time, they took great care with every detail, including personally making sure that we all got back to ...

“Best night out in Beijing”

From Cherie Beijing, Beijing, China    Oct 27 2014
Our family of 2 adults, 2 teenagers did an overnight camp on the wall with China Hiking and had a great time. Thanks Fred and Heidi, you thought of everything! Great company, great food - watching Heidi cook up a feast over one small cooker was an experience in itself.
We'll definitely be looking to join you on future tours. Thanks for the memor...

Best experience on our trip

From Twinsen    Oct 27 2014
Me and my girlfriends hiking trip with Fred and Heidi to the wall were simply the best day out of our 7 days in Beijing. 
We were picked up at a central metro station and had a 2 hour drive to a part of the wall. We then had lunch at a local small city. After lunch we climbed a somewhat steep mountain to get to a wild part of the wall. The 4 hou...

Away from the tourists.

From benarent    Oct 27 2014
After spending a day at forbidden palace with several million tourists I wasn't down for another tourist adventure to the Great Wall. Luckily I read about Freds private tour and signed up. It was only a 3.3 mile hike but with over 1.3k of climbing it was a good hike considering the heat. You can view the hike here http://www.strava.com/activitie...
