5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2016

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.

We missed out on this trip. We were unable to reach the destination on time via the Beijing underground due to the congested train system. Despite leaving at 5.30am for an 8.30am departure. We suggest not booking this trip unless you are in the vicinity of the Beijing Backpackers Hostel departure point.
