Awesome experience!

From Simone P    Oct 17 2018
We had a fantastic time with ChinaHiking. We were two Canadian women (age 29 and 30) and did the two day/one night hiking trip. We had so much fun! Our guide John was very knowledgeable and lots of fun. The meals were amazing. And all the other people involved were excellent. Would highly recommend to others!!

Breath Taking

Form the first email I sent to Fred and Heidi it was a very professional experience. The team answered every question I asked in a prompt manner and the info they gave me was spot on.The best thing about the whole experience (other than the wall itself WOW) was John our guide.He just kept going and the laughs were every minute of our trek. Nothi...

Exceeded Expectations!

From jcs363 Boston    Oct 17 2018
Went on an overnight trip in early October and what an incredible time we had! There were 4 of us and our guide and we were the only ones on the first wild section of the Great Wall, camping under the stars and we even had a fire and roasted marshmallows. I can't believe this isn't a more popular activity but I hope it stays this way so those wh...

Excellent!

From cdavids91    Oct 17 2018
I had initially booked my trip for April but I got sick and had to cancel last minute. I was able to reschedule my trip for August with no hassle (or extra fees!) which I really appreciated. The trip itself was flawless. When they say that everything is taken care of, it is not a lie. Not only were all meals provided but they were also delicious...

From Lianne Bosch    Oct 17 2018
This trip was the absolute highlight of our 4 weeks trip through china. It was freezing cold in the tent, but the sunset was sooooo rewarding. I can totally recommend anyone looking for an unique experience to book their trip with China Hiking.

3 day wild Great Wall camping

From Tour549030    Sep 28 2018
The hike was absolutely brilliant , it was amazing to see the original wall, it took some stamina on some parts but it was totally worth it! Our guide Jimmy was exceptional, he told us a lot about the history of the wall and was constantly making sure we were ok and kept us safe, you could tell he had a passion for the outdoors and history. The ...

Best part of my trip to China

From BrittanyB2300    Sep 27 2018
I still can't believe it is possible to camp on the wild wall... this was by far one of the coolest things I have ever had the chance to experience and by far the highlight of my trip to China. Jamie was such a wonderful guide and his local knowledge of the flora and fauna, and history of the wall, was fantastic. I sit in a cube all day so wasn'...

Amazing experience

From Thiago Luiz M    Sep 27 2018
2 days hiking in the mountains and the great wall, camping in ome of the watchtowers and tasting local food prepared by farmers... It was an amazing experience. Thanks to the guides Heidi, John and Jimmy. Very nice people full of history and good jokes that made our hiking even better.

Fabulous hike with excellent guides, delicious meals, and engaging fellow travelers

From AndrewN848    Sep 21 2018
We had a wonderful time on our Great Wall hike! Very informative and helpful guides. These sections of the wall provided a nice contrast—part is unrestored, and part is restored, so you get a taste of both. Incredible views all along the route. Overnight you can camp literally next to the wall or sleep at a farmhouse nearby. We enjoyed meeting a...

Best tour I\'ve ever done!

From louprince73 Cairns, Australia    Sep 14 2018
HI,I did the 2 day 1 night camping on the Great Wall with J.I. & Zhangpeng. It was by far the best tour I have ever done, yes the wall is interesting and being able to camp the night was superb but it was more how J.I. & Zhangpeng made the tour so welcoming and supportive that was the highlight. With a small group of 9 we had a great time, I and...

Highlight of Beijing

From EthanSteimel New York City, New York    Sep 14 2018
Fantastic hike. We went on a cloudy day so didn't get to see the wall stretch on forever. But the experience was the highlight of our trip to China.

My wife and I went with John Isaiah as a guide. He was friendly and great. He met us at the subway stop, we drove to a farmhouse for lunch, hiked an hour to the wall, along the wall three hours, an...
