What a fantastic experience! Going in the off season, had its perks as my tour of 10 people were practically the only ones on this section of the wall! Pick up was easy and on time and Paul the guide was great and really knowledgeable. Lunch was really good and no unwanted stops a long the way

This was an amazing tour, away from the busy tourist side. We basically had the wall to ourselves so we had great photo opportunities and an intense hike . Our guide Nancy was informative and excellent, she has a great passion for her work. The lunch was delicious as well. No shopping trips so this is highly recommended

One of the best parts of the Wall I have walked, good access but not over-crowded, and parts of the Wall are very original. This Viator tour worked very well.

Chan was AMAZING! Had an amazing time - went on Sept.29th - few days before the most busiest time of the year and China.

Our tour had almost no people on the wall - Fantastic! It ended up being just the 5 of us, including Chan.. who did everything to make the hike a memorable experience.

Helpful tip - Chan is as good as they come, ask him for other tours when you're in the area. This tour had zero tourist trap shops ie. silk shop, tea shop, pearl shop, jade shop etc. Loved it!

No vi reviews en español, así que yo lo haré.

Si quieres contemplar un buen paisaje, la muralla en una de sus partes más auténticas y estar completamente solo en ella y disrutar una de las mejores caminatas que puedes hacer no tienes que dudar en hacer este tour.

La empresa súper puntual, un tour muy pequeño, muy atentos con el grupo y la comida que nos dieron al terminar el recorrido bastante buena.

No pueden morir sin vivir esta experiencia. Complicado ir por tu cuenta hasta esta zona a menos que se renten un carro o paguen 800 Yuanes por un taxi desde Beijing.

Si tienen alguna duda dejen su pregunta y les intento ayudar a resolverla.

Great part of the wall! Get your monies worth with every step climbed. Altitude and rough conditions of this section of wall are NOT for the faint of heart! Book this tour!!!

After booking the tour online, a week prior for the Sunday tour, we did not receive ay confirmation from the third party tour operator China Travel Depot on the pickup time from our hotel. We asked our hotel to call on our behalf. It wasn't until the day before the scheduled tour, in the late afternoon, they called our hotel reception and confirmed the pickup time as 6:20am. The driver arrived promptly the next morning. We were picked up in a small van, but then transferred to a bigger bus after picking up more passengers. From there the tour started. When we arrived about 10:30am at the Simitai entrance it started raining cats and dogs, complete downpour, Our tour guide Chan suggested we buy ponchos from the store. It was recommended that we walk up to the Great Wall and take the cable car back down after 90 RMB extra. Please be aware we were not informed beforehand of this extra cost. If we did not want to pay for the cable car, we would have to separate from the group and walk all the way back the way we came. However, given our exhaustion by the end, we were grateful not to have to climb the steep stairs back down. The spectacular view was well worth the climb. Thankfully, the rain cleared up by 11:30am. Although some parts of the wall were extremely difficult due to the steep steps, we were not rushed and were able to take our time. There were a few other tourist trekking the wall as well, while we were there. But we were able to get lots of pictures without anyone else in the photos. Lunch after the climb was delicious. We finished a little after 1pm. By 2pm, we were eating at one of the restaurants in the water town, at the bottom of the wall near the entrance. The drive back took a bit longer due to traffic. We did not get back to our hotel until almost 5:30pm. All in all, it was a great tour and worth the value.
