About
As Great Wall hiking tours go, this offers the best of both worlds—not to mention a route that’s almost impossible to access unless you speak Chinese. Hike the unrestored, untouched Jiankou Great Wall, with its soaring views and ancient ruins, to the well-known Great Wall at Mutianyu. Plus, a private tour means you receive the undivided attention of your guide.

  • Expect an early start for this full-day Great Wall hiking tour. Your knowledgeable guide greets you at your central Beijing hotel for the journey to Jiankou, where your Great Wall hike begins. The twists and turns of this unrestored and less-visited stretch of wall make it perfect for photographers.

Along the way, your private guide explains the long history of the wall’s construction. If you enjoy a mild physical challenge combined with a cultural experience, this is the tour for you.

Great Wall, whichever part you wanted to visit he is the man to go to. We chose to take the cable car up and down and walk the Wall from Mutianyu to Jiankou - it was unbelievable, words just can't express how amazing the whole experience was. The views, the feel of the history in every step and stone. We didn't want to leave, it was so magnificent. We would highly recommend Jonny for whatever part of the wall you want to visit, the difficult for the very fit, or the more gentle parts for the not so fit. He does overnight camping on the wall, whatever you choose to do you will enjoy.

We did this day trip with our 8-year old son and he hiked this section no problem.

Our guide Dennis and his driver picked us up at our hotel in a new minivan. It was a private tour for just our family. Dennis gave us great history all the way to the Wall. He spoke excellent English and gave very clear expectations. There was never any up-selling or awkward moments that sometimes accompany a tour. Everything was very easy and professional with this company. I highly recommend! Dennis was superb.

This is a fair bit of hiking - much of it uphill. If you are in bad shape, it will hurt but it's doable. If you are in moderate shape, you'll be sore in the calf muscles. If you are in great shape, it's a breeze.

This is a WAY better option than just going to see the wall on a bus. Hiking along the unrestored section toward Mutianyu gave us time to marvel at the vastness of the wall and the surrounding mountains.

Must Do's:
- Take the toboggan down.
- Eat at the local chain dumpling restaurant at the bottom of the wall in Mutianyu.
- Go in mid-October (before the leaves drop off) to miss the big crowds.

As a family of five (kids 18,16 and 9) we hiked from Jiankou to Mutianyu. We took a private tour with Roy as our guide. It’s a steep hike through the forest up to the great wall, quite an excersise. Make sure you bring water and snacks ( the included lunch is actually around 3.30PM) The views are awesome and there were hardly any other people at the Jiankou part of the wall. Maybe because it was slightly raining and misty, which actually made the experience even better. Would defenitely recommend Roy as a guide. Pick up from the hotel was accurate. He speaks perfectly well English and shared his great knowledge with us. Could not have done this without him.

Wow - what an incredible experience. Justin our guide was just wonderful. It was very knowledgeable from the outset and was great with communication. He took us to a very isolated area where we were able to hike through the forest to the unrestored parts of the Great Wall. It was magical. Definitely would have not been able to explore the areas we did without his guidance. Would 100% recommend this tour and Justin. Thanks again, I look forward to seeing you again some day! Cheers, Michael

We were met promptly by our guide, Miko, who was engaging, funny, educational with fantastic English skills. He went at our pace, clearly knew the hiking trail and the interesting history of the Great Wall of China. Miko showed us a fantastic day and we both had an experience that we will never forget!

The trip with our guide Miko was amazing. We did not have to worry about anything, they picked us up from our hotel in a big van and we were only 3. The tour we did was perfect because we first walked on the original part to then go to the touristic renovated part. Miko did everything we asked and even arranged for us to have a nice dinner and do the slide down from the wall. Without him we would not have the same experience, he made it so easy and really amazing. It was a really nice experience!!!

Me and my family had a great tour with our guide Jack. This tour was the Highlight of our Trip to Beijing. I done this tour with my wife and 12 year old son.
Jack was very helpful during the tour and even lent one of his personal walking sticks to my wife. The lunch provided on this tour is excellent also.
I highly recommend this tour and Jack as a Guide.

It was the experience of a lifetime to actually walk along an unrestored section of the Great Wall. Unfortunately the weather was extremely hot (August) but Jack was a capable and thoughtful guide. He didn't hurry us and allowed plenty of rest stops with snacks and cool drinks. He picked us up on time,we were transported in a comfortable, air conditioned car and he looked after us at all times. Thanks to his care and attention,our group of three older ladies had a wonderful day out.
