Hiking with Heidi is a fun and exhilarating experience you will long remember and treasure.

From Steve S Beijing, China    Sep 25 2011
I have gone out on multiple occasions with Heidi with visitors from the US and each time presents a unique, unforgetable, exhilarating experience. We opt for outings to more remote, pristine spots where the natural beauty and tranquility are breathtaking. Heidi has literally dozens of hiking destinations available to match your interests, expect...

“Best of our trip”

From Juergen33... Munich, Germany    Sep 19 2011
We were traveling for 4 weeks from Beijing to Hong Kong.
At the end of the vacations we were discussing what the highlight of our trip was and we all voted for hiking with Heidi and Fred.

We started the tour with a delicious lunch and then were walking on the wall for 5 hours. I have never seen anything like this. The place is so remote that...

The perfect way to end my visit to Beijing

From Matt J Shrewsbury, England    Sep 01 2011
Such an incredible weekend. I've visited other parts of the Great Wall, but this is something completely different! Transport, food, hiking back pack and camping gear is all included. Heidi and Fred prepare some delicious food for lunch, dinner and breakfast. To walk along the Great Wall as it meanders through the valleys is such an experience, ...

Off the Beaten Wall with Heidi and Fred

From ChrisIntr... Marrakech    Sep 01 2011
I would recommened this trip for anyone who is looking for an authentic back country experience away from the crowds. We walked along a stretch of the wall and saw only a handful of people and then overnighted in one of the turrets along the wall. We had a camp fire that Fred cooked up some roast duck while we watched the sun set with a tipple o...

An unforgettable highlight of my China trip!

From gowsley Kansas City, Missouri    Aug 26 2011
I decided to do a hike of the Great Wall of China with Fred and Heidi. We went to Panglongshan (winding dragon). The hike was beautiful. Fred and Heidi are great guides. They know the perfect places on the wall that are not busy with any tourists. At the same time, they point out towers that are famous for various reasons. It's obvious that the ...

Spectacular Great Wall hike away from the crowds with wonderful guide

From Slonar Toronto, Canada    Aug 20 2011
We were met by Heidi and she had arranged everything for our trip from Beijing to a remote part of the Wall including a great lunch at a farmhouse at the Wall. We hiked for 5 hours along intact and some broken parts of the Wall without seeing a single other person! She was fun and informative and I would recommend her guiding to anyone wanting t...

In our last year in Beijing we went many time hiking with Heidi

From Stéphane de Toldi, France    Jul 24 2011
We started with a couple of friends and very quickly we went regularly four or five families together with kids, friends and sometime dog. We have been hiking on various stretches of the Great Wall, but also along the Ming tombs and other tombs and temples, dicovered some old villages... Each time was simply perfect, Heidi knows exactly where an...

It was a truly amazing adventure

From Susan Ottawa, Canada    Jul 23 2011
Instead of doing the typical touristy part of The Great Wall, we were given the opportunity to go with Dandelion Hiking on a private tour, to a more remote location that hadn't been touched in roughly 100 years. Well worth it!!! Heidi, our guide was fabulous!!! We started out with a homemade lunch at a family dwelling just below the hill. Our gr...

Great alternative hike along the great wall

From erwa Ostersund, Sweden 23/07/2011    Jul 23 2011
This was a great hike, we got to se some parts of the wall that most tourists dont get to, and experience some great food and hospitality at the place we stayed the night. And of course a nice visit to some hotspring spa and swimming facility.

Great experience!

From Dikkertje    Jul 20 2011
We did a one day tour with Heidi and it was great! Hop in a local bus, step into a little van and after that just walk a view hours on the beautiful great wall of China! And above all, you walk on a easy and quit peace so no tourist's at all. Amazing day it was!!

Great guide and great fun!

From Robdes1    Jun 29 2011
We hiked the 5 towers. Nice scenery and pretty strenuous. Heidi negotiated through a few roadblocks in fine fashion. I'm looking forward to my next adventure with her
