Phenomenal day of hiking the great wall. This is the area of the great wall to go to! Very few tourist, You will have the wall to yourself at times for great pictures. Danny was our guide and the touring company was Great Wall Hiking. Dany was fantastic. He spoke great English and was extremely knowledgeable. You can tell he truly enjoys taking people on the hike of the wall. He also packed some snacks to keep our energy up during the hike. There were only 6 people in my group. I will say, this hike involves some work. I calculated that I walked 110 floors that day! Be prepared to get some exercise. I would not recommend for elderly or for people not comfortable walking non-flat surfaces. That being said, it was a day I will never forget! You have plenty of time during your hike to take in the beauty of the wall and the surrounding views. We finished the day with a fabulous farmers style meal. Many dishes of fresh food. Perfect tour for someone that wants to feel like they truly hiked the wall and just didn't go there to look at it.
Worth the hike and money
This great wall walk was the best tour i have ever done. We had the best tour guide and a perfect day to see the wall and how far it stretched! The food that was also included was so delicious, youll want to take some home! This was the best day we had in China!
Very Good experience

Very nice trip, well organized. The focus was on the wall, no fluff (no tea factory, museum or farmers market). We spent about 3h hiking on the wall (lots of up and downs). November helping, we did not see many people, which makes for nice pictures and a cool experience having sometimes to wall for ourselves.Our guide (Peter) was very knowledgeable and very friendly.I would definitely recommend.
Weather was great and the view was...

Weather was great and the view was amazing plus, a nice hiking exercise. The guide YaShi was great - knowledgeable and caring, which is very important, as I am comparing with other tours. I highly recommend this tour.
Great Day Out
This section of the wall is quite hilly with lots of climbs and descents. Although the walking was quite tough we weren't rushed at all and were given plenty of time to pause and take in the views. In total there were seven of us in the group (plus the guide who was excellent).
The hike was long but well worth it, since we got amazing views with very little interactions with other tourists. Guide was informative
This small group tour was fantastic...

This small group tour was fantastic! We commenced our climb in a location where there were barely any tourists, we kept a comfortable pace and were allowed time to take photos. We didn't encounter many tourists on the part of the wall we walked, so that made it all the more special.
Our tour guide had excellent English, was informative and fun. He also provided each of us with a USB of photos he had taken of us during the day trip. They were tailored personally which was a special touch!
I'd give this experience six stars...
I'd give this experience six stars if I could. A really well organised day out with a fantastic guide Yaxin who made sure we got to make the most of this fabulous trip. We did it on a Monday and pretty much had the Great Wall to ourselves, the group was small seven and we went along at an easy pace with plenty of breaks. Snacks were provided too, I suggest bringing a small backpack to carry water and remember to wear layers. The route wasn't too challenging, some of the older hikers we met used poles - but by no means all of them. The end came all too soon and no one wanted to leave however, the post hike lunch was really enjoyable, great food and plenty of it with great company. We took two teenage boys who loved it and I'd recommend this hike in a heartbeat.
