“Long Valley Great Wall Hike”

From stevebob London, United Kingdom    Aug 11 2014
I joined Fred, Heidi and a small group of 5 other hikers for an overnight trip to an unrestored and little-visited section of the Great Wall. We camped beside the highest tower in the Beijing area, and were able to see the wall stretching out for a long distance in both directions. The views were beautiful, particularly at dawn. It was so nice t...

awesome adventure

From Ayse    Jul 15 2014
We only visited Beijing over a long weekend and this team made it possible for us to go hiking on the most amazing unrestored sections of the wall only a short (safe) minibus ride away. We were very lucky with great weather, great visibility and a great group. Strongly recommend you compare the tour prices as this one was exceptional value for m...

Unforgettable trip on the great wall

From Singapore, Singapore    Jul 15 2014
We had a great 3 day 2 night trip with Fred and Heidi on the great wall in September. The weather was a bit iffy, but they were fantastic about being flexible and adjusting as necessary to meet the needs of the group and make sure everyone was comfortable.

We will never forget getting to see wall in this way, with all the history still intact ...

an adventure to remember

From Ostend, Belgium    Jul 15 2014
It has been almost a year since I went hiking and camping on the great wall but it is a memory that i will treasure. Heidi and Fred are really nice and really open. Fred is from Brugge (Belgium) which is very close to my hometown. The experience to go on the wall and don t see any other tourists is really unique. The views are breathtaking. The ...

“I will remember this forever!”

From Cara W    Jul 15 2014
I've enjoyed visiting tourist sites in downtown Beijing, and even another portion of the Wall that was thoroughly reconstructed, but this trip to the Wall was the most rewarding by far! Myself and my friends were constantly in awe of the beauty of our surroundings and had a wonderful time visiting an authentic part of the Great Wall. We truly en...

“An Amazing trip”

From Guy P    Jul 15 2014
We took a group of 13 hiking on the Great Wall at Gubeikou to celebrate a summer of volunteer work. It was simply fantastic. Camping was awesome - we got a clear night full of stars. Our guides were friendly, informative, helpful, and just plain fun to hike with. The views were amazing. The food was some of the best we'd had while in China. I wo...

“Amazing experience - best way to visit the Great Wall”

From sophiebedu    Jul 15 2014
I was absolutely enchanted by the tour to the Great Wall with Chinahiking. First of all I loved the fact that we went to a less (none) touristic part if the Wall which was majestic and allowed us to fully enjoy it. The orgaznization was perfect! Always a back-up plan (we couldn't camp because of lightning, but Fred & Heidi had a farmhouse planne...

“Amazing hiking trip”

From London, United Kingdom    Jul 15 2014
Can't speak highly enough of our trip with Dandelion Hiking. Joined a small group led by the wonderful Heidi on the Chen Castle overnight camping trip. Began with a great local meal at a village near the wall, a short hike and some amazing views, then set up camp on top of the wall to watch the sunset, followed by dinner and a campfire under the...

“Camping at Chen\'s Castle - Outstanding!”

From LouisePerry    Jul 15 2014
We booked a camping tour with Heidi and Fred to celebrate a birthday milestone. A tour was not listed for the dates we wanted but they accommodated our request and arranged a new tour for the dates we requested.

A fantastic group of 8 hikers joined the tour with 2 guides (Jan and Er Hu). We travelled along an old part of the wall in original co...

“Gubeikou Great Wall”

From XiaoMa Beijing, China    Jul 15 2014
Forget about Badaling and Mutianyu, sign up for a camping trip with Fred and Heidi and explore the off the beaten track parts of the wall. Camping on our near the wall is an experience you will never forget!
We went to the Gubeikou part of the wall. It is a very beautiful part, the hike is relaxed and not too though, the camping spot is cool and...

“BEST HIKING GROUP EVER”

From JessicaElana South Korea    Jul 15 2014
I did a hike and camping with these gems last weekend (June 7-8th, 2014). It was such an awesome time. They took care of everything (meals, a tent, a backpack, transportation, explanations, etc) and it was all super well organized. During the hike, we didn't see another soul. We had the wall all to ourselves and had amazing views. Best part, the...

“Highlight of 6 weeks in China”

From aredfries Chandler, Arizona    Jul 11 2014
My brother and I spent six weeks backpacking through China, and Heidi and Fred's camping excursion was the highlight of our trip. Good quality bags, camping equipment, and food added to their friendly personalities and breathtaking views - all for ourselves without any of the pesky tourists. I'd highly recommend any of their hikes - ours (Gubeik...

“Badain Jaran Desert, most beautiful hike in China!”

From GitanJean Livingston, Guatemala    May 09 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...
