I had a blast with our tour guide James who was informative and friendly. The hike was at a perfect pace and length, capped off by a great lunch afterword. I could not have had a better time.

Unforgettable experience with equally great customer service
Jun 2019 • Couples
Kassy (office contact), James (tour guide), and David (driver) were all extremely attentive and responsive to our every need. Communication by text and email were flawless. James called us at our hotel the evening before our trek, just to make sure. We had a bit of food (water/ice) poisoning the day before, so we were extra needy trekkers, but James and the driver handled it all very well. True professionals! This section of the Great Wall was quite rustic (not renovated), but this gave us the feeling of a true backpacking, wilderness experience. The scenery is very picturesque. Some of the guard towers provided shade, which we appreciated on a hot day. No insects, or other hazards, to speak of. The provided lunch was nearby, and shortly after the trek. The restaurant staff were very nice, and sympathetic to our upset stomachs. They went out of their way to get us exactly what we felt like eating, and we were able to take away a doggie bag. Thanks to all... an unforgettable experience!

What an amazing day!
Jun 2019 • Family
Our day tour of the Great Wall was an unforgettable experience. From the moment we were picked up at our hotel we were treated great. Our guide, Peter, was very friendly and knowledgeable. He spoke perfect english and answered all of our question. Being upon the wall is a surreal experience, which I recommend to anyone who has the opportunity. The section of the wall we were on (Gubeikou) was unrestored and "wild" which made for a great day of hiking. There is a small farming village at the base of the wall where we enjoyed a lunch that was outstanding. This section had virtually no tourist and we felt as if we had the wall all to ourselves. I highly recommend this tour!

Fabulous day!
Jun 2019 • Couples
What a day! This Great Wall hike was the highlight of our trip. The hike itself was easy to moderate, but included some steep sections, so keep that in mind. Don't let the difficulty of the hike fool you though - the views at the top were gorgeous and there were many guard towers to wander through.

This is an unrestored section of the wall, meaning very quiet and peaceful compared to the more popular sections. We only saw about 10 or 15 people during the whole hike!

Our guide Danny spoke very good english, was full of knowledge related to the wall and its vast history answering any and every question we had. We were able to go at our own pace and never felt rushed, taking breaks when we needed them. The best part is, it comes with a very generous lunch. It was only me and my girlfriend but Danny ordered us 5 very traditional, very delicious dishes. Yes. 5. Needless to say, it was the perfect way to finish off the day.

Yes, you would be able to do this hike without a guide, but with the amount of history that is associated with the wall having Danny alongside to tell us every small detail that went into this amazing, unrestored section of the Great Wall really made it much much better. Even going as far as to take us a back route and into places you would never expect you could visit. All in all a fantastic day thanks to Great Wall Trekclub! "

Exceptional BEYOND words
May 2019 • Friends
Our guide spoke excellent English; has vast knowledge and experience with the history of China, The Great Wall, and tour options that fits the customers needs. He is prepared; he thinks ahead; plans for contingencies; and is works so very hard to insure his people have an EXCEPTIONAL experience.
