Private guide provided informative commentary and personalized attention
Combining unrestored, quiet "wild wall" of Jiankou with the beautiful restored but much more popular Mutianyu, you really get the best of both words. Our guide Peter appointed by Greatwall Trek Club only further enhanced the experience by being personable and committed to excellent service. He is the only guide in our China travels to come right up to our hostel instead of making us walk to a bigger hotel for pickup. He provided snacks and water, helped take some photos, and generally provided great conversation and recommendations.

This was an excellent hike on the unrestored part of the Great Wall. Our guide, James, arranded promptly at our hotel and provided both of us with a walking stick, water and snack. We only met a couple of other people on the trail in this section. The hike was quite manageable. James stopped many times for photo ops which included lots of information too. He spoke fluent English. James surprised us by presenting us with a certificate for completing the hike. Our names were written in English and Chinese on the certificate. James signed and dated it. After the hike, James took us to a restaurant and ordered us authentic Chinese food. It was delicious and unlike any Chinese food I had ever eaten. I would highly recommend this hike with James as the guide!
I really do not do very many tours and I thought a personal tour might be a little uncomfortable, but I was pleasantly suprised. Peter was our tour guide, he made this experience more than just a tourist accomplishment. Peter is very knowledgeable about the great wall and Chinese history, I felt like I gained incredible insight into Chinese traditions and culture by having him there. He was very respectful and thoughtful and it was nice to have someone there to take pictures. At the end of it all he took us to a restaurant that he himself likes, and the food was great. This was a great experience and I highly recommend it.
