"It was a great idea to book this type of adventure. I had no idea what to expect. My guide was Oliver. Great guy with good knowledge of the area and history. Beside of that he was funny too. It was great time spent together with him during these three days of hiking. I can tell that specially third day was difficult in the beginning. For me, the guy working behind the desk it could be even more problematic, but it wasn't!. I am proud of myself that I was able to "survive" this trip without any issues. I have camera full of great pictures and had full of great memories from this adventure. We've seen many interesting things. I liked the farmer's house hotel we stayed over night. The room was clean, nicely prepared for us, clean bathroom and even draperies in the window.. Even there was a tv and Wi-Fi(!). By the way, I was too tired to watch the tv. The second night we spent in the great wall tower sleeping in the tents! That was amazing experience.
Thanks Oliver, thanks the Driver!
I recommend this attraction to everybody!!!"
