Such an incredible experience - the highlight of our trip! Leo was a wonderful tour guide, incredibly accommodating, on time and full of helpful facts and interesting conversations. The two areas we toured were incredibly memorable, I was looking into a lot of different tours of different sections of the wall leading up to this trip and am SO glad I chose not only these destinations, but specifically the sunset itinerary. The later start @ 11AM meant that Mutianyu was not very crowded for us at all, we went on a weekday, and for the Huanghuacheng section we basically had the wall to ourselves - we were literally the only people there. While the chair lift, toboggan, and general wall climb at Mutianyu was super fun to explore, the lake side Huanghuacheng was such a unique way to see the wall. The water section is beautiful, and the remoteness of the experience was unreal.

The overcast skies meant we did not actually get a sunset, but I don't think it made a difference for our group. I would say even if you could care less about a sunset this is still an incredible tour, I can imagine on the rare but right day the sun would look incredible over the view we did enjoy though...

Leo and our driver went above and beyond for us - we enjoyed a glass of wine !! at the height of our evening climb, and lunch and the trip down was comfortable and efficient. Leo also brought along a drone camera and sent along a video, which was an unexpected but so appreciated additional activity. We were in China for 10 days and this was hands down my favorite day. Highly recommended for anyone looking to take an incredible day to explore a super unique Great Wall experience.

This was a definitely more of an active day - we were huffing it for sure to get to the top of the wall, so I'd recommend heat-appropriate active wear and good shoes!
