Great trip and great company!
They were very helpful in tailoring the trip to fit our group. My 70 and 75 year old parents and my 10 and 12 year old children were with us. They helped with getting our visas and every email response was prompt and helpful. When we got there it was everything they promised. Airport pick up service and hotel check in and out went smoothly. Our guide Oliver was great! He did all our food ordering and there was plenty of choices for everyone. The hike was challenging but he let us set our own pace. My only "tip" that they did not mention was for the overnight camping on the wall. The location for the camping is not far from the local house and the van so you can take "extra luxuries " if you want. In our case, we brought a bottle of wine and it was very special to be able to watch the sunset while enjoying a glass. Highly recommend this company!

Gubeikou is one-of-a-kind in its method as it differs in dimension and design. It is a long windy wall, which is high. This site is remarkable, and also you will certainly reach. Take it all in for concerning 10km. The Jinshanling Great Wall Surface, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, has parts of its wall surface brought back about a quarter. The remainder is all unrestored, which gives you a much more individual experience of The Great wall bringing you back in time. We will certainly see the sunset while hiking on the wall.

An early wakeup call to watch the sunrise over the Great Wall and then onto Huanghuacheng, Great Wall.
The fantastic countryside of Huanghuacheng Great Wall is covered in a yellow mass of wildflowers in the summer, Also known as the 'Yellow Flower Town' of the Great Wall. This section of the Great Wall has no stone steps or a single smooth walkway, and it provides quite a challenge for its visitors. Another significant feature is the Lake that gives it that extra unique feel to your visit when hiking this beautiful section.
The majority of the Xishuiyu Great Wall is in a decent condition. Some parts have weakened over time and look worn, But it hasn't fallen yet. This area lets you see the real Great Wall and what it is like before restoration. It is a piece of history; not many people get to explore. We will head west and eventually see the location where the Great Wall meets the water and follows a path under the water.
This hike will finish at about 1 or 2 pm. We will have a wonderful lunch before making our way back to Beijing.
