Best Day Ever
, Mar 2020
EXCELLENT tour! This was one of the best days of my life! This part of the wall is breathtakingly beautiful and our little group was very lucky to strike it on a perfect winters day and have it to ourselves. It was truly an honour to walk the walk in this way. The tour guide was very nice and gave us all the information we needed then left us to walk on our own, at our own pace.
Jinshanling is amazing. But not with this tour operator!
, Nov 2019
This part of the wall is incredible and well worth the visit. However be cautious of who you book with. This operator promised pick up from the hotel but wouldn’t honour it as we were located on the boundary line of the 2nd ring. Directly on the line! They of course were willing to do the collection for a fee. Be wary.
Nice experience
, Aug 2019
The transfer to the wall lasted 3 hours. Bus is comfortable. The guide speaks English fluently. On the wall we had 3h which was a little bit less. The guide was not with us. We did not find the exit in this time and could not attend the lunch at the restaurant but they brought us the meal for take away in the bus. Overall a good experience and the wall is impressive. Not so many tourists there and good for photographers.
Excellent Great Wall hike away from most crowded sites

This tour was just what we were looking for. No unnecessary shopping and a good, long hike on the wall on our own.
Self-guided hiking tour

This was a great tour, although not exactly as advertised. First, There was no hotel pick up or drop off. However, i really enjoyed the tour we hiked about 8km and it was quite challenging in some sections. Make sure to wear adequate footwear. The guide Alice was really nice, but it wasnt much of a guided tour. The lunch was good.

OMG so hard but still sssssssssssooooo happy I did this part of the wall then did the Badaling spelling? side later on my China trip. To see the contrast between the 2 differnt parts made this tour even more impressive. Best way to spend my 49th birthday, but next year maybe just cake and balloons please :

Highlight of our trip. Our group pretty much had the wall to ourselves. It was great to see parts restored and other parts unrestored, and be able to walk on both parts. We took the cable car up to the top for a few quid extra - worth it if it's a hot day and there's lots of steep steps to tackle later on the wall.
Beautiful experience in one of the...

Beautiful experience in one of the less crowded sections of the Great Wall from which you can enjoy a spectacular view. Excellent transfer service from the hotel to Jinshanling. Good lunch included in the price.

The Jinshanling portion of the Great Wall was amazing - there are very few people and the views are awesome. Lots of steps though, so you'll need to be in decent shape. Unfortunately, the tour itself was very bad - the tour guide never joined us on the wall itself, he only showed us the map and told us which direction to go and what time to meet back at the bottom. Also, the tour company ended having people from a different tour to Water Town ride in the van with us, causing additional stops to drop them off and pick them back up, along with extra stops on the morning pickup route. This cut our time on the wall short by an hour we got 2.5 instead of the 3.5 promised in the tour description, and then we returned to Beijing during the worst of rush hour instead of being dropped back off at our hotel at 4:00 as the tour mentioned. The van stopped at a subway station and the tour guide encouraged us to take the subway if we wanted to get back to our hotel quicker. Yes, do a tour of Jinshanling, but no, find a different tour operator!

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
