I wanted a challenging section of the Great Wall and this was exactly what I was looking for. We were able to explore this area at our own pace. The wall is restored in some sections and unrestored in others. The scenery of the wall and the hillsides were spectacular, especially in spring when the trees are flowering.
Our tour guide Jen was very informative about the area and it's history . I especially want to thank her for helping me retrieve my phone when I forgot it on the bus.
The trip was fabulous. The hike is pretty decent so wear proper clothing. Jen was a great tour guide. The hike is pretty much on your own and there were lots of chances to get the perfect photo. I would do this tour again.
A comfortable ride to the site with a guide to get us up to the wall and then we walked along the wall on our own at our own pace. The guide met us at the end point for the ride back to Beijing. This wall section is great; picturesque and no crowds.
This Great Wall tour with May as a guide was awesome! It is a further drive than some other segments of the Great Wall and my tour was also in November, so we had it almost completely to ourselves. May was very informed, providing good conversation on the drive back and forth and also while hiking the wall. She is also and excellent photographer so she made sure we all had great photos of ourselves with the wall. It was a highlight of my visit to China! thank you May and Backpackers Hostel!
7km trek along the top of the wall in beautiful and peaceful surroundings away from the crowds. Our tour guide Mei was super helpful and friendly. Totally recommended
Terrific experience. The meeting point is easily reachable by public transport. The section of the wall we visited was truly beautiful and it was only our group walking it along, so at some point, you found yourself completely alone along this marvellous piece of engineering. The surroundings are equally beautiful, with sections of the wall being taken over by the forest. The guides were also very friendly and showed a wide knowledge about Chinese history and the wall construction, a pity I do not properly remember their names I think one was Yen?. We were very happy to have skipped the crowds choosing this tour. 100 recommendable!
This was an ideal tour for us. My brother and I simply had to make our way to the Downtown Packpacker's Hostel in central Beijing. We were given simple instructions and maps to help us get there, and it was indeed very simple to find the hostel. From there we got a coach all the way to Jinshanling without stopping. Our tour guide gave us some information when we departed, spoken in good English. When we arrived we were given directions and then mostly left to ourselves to tackle the 6km hike at our own pace, but with a final meeting time at the end of the route. This allowed us to explore it was we liked. The weather was nice and we were able to see for miles in all directions and truly experience the scenic beauty of this marvellous location. We then headed straight back to Beijing. The whole trip was ideal for us and I would highly recommend it. The wall itself was, of course, amazing. Definitely something to tick off the bucket list.
Simply amazing. A must for those who are looking for a Great Wall adventure as well as a tour. Not for the faint at heart. Must be fit because of the steep stairs and crumbling sections of the wall. However, you are richly rewarded with spectacular views.
Great tour if you want to see a less touristy area of the wall. The walking was tough at times but the views were worth it. You need a moderate level of fitness. Jan was a fun and friendly guide, but really you are left to your own devices on the walk. We didn’t mind though as we preferred it.
THE EXCURSION WAS VERY GOOD. THE ONLY LOOSE POINT IS THAT MY PARTNER COULD NOT GO FOR HEALTH PROBLEMS AND THEY DID NOT RETURN MONEY
