If you want to see the Great Wall off the beaten path, go with Fred and Heidi. The hike we did with them was nothing short of amazing. We didn't see other people for hours and we hiked on parts of the Great Wall that most tourists never see. Fred and Heidi tailored the hike to our needs. We had a comfortable private van, ate a great Chinese lunch, and had snacks along the way. Fred and Heidi were knowledgeable of the trails and history. I felt very comfortable touring with them and felt lucky to have guides that knew how to show me the path less traveled.

If you want to do a real hike, off the beaten path with fun and knowledgeable guides, Fred and Heidi are your people.

Heidi and Fred are very good guides and were patient with me and my husband. We are 63 & 64 years old and the hike to the Wall itself was strenuous, but worth it. The day was beautiful, no pollution. The area is not a bit touristy,which was nice. I would say go during the spring or fall and be sure to wear good hiking boots!

It is a great trip to old Great Wall with Fred and Heidi. You can see the real Great Wall with completely original look and no transformation of tourism development. Standing on the ancient Great Wall, you can truly feel the great history. Highly recommended!

It was last October we went to the Great Wall. The tour was amazing! The scenery was good and can not be seen in the city, and few people were there. And the guide was so kind and introduced
a lot of historical stories . All my family enjoyed the trip and we had a wonderful time .

I did this tour on the1st of October and it was the middle of the national holiday but we were taken to a section of the wall where there were no other tourists! Perfect! We only saw two people in the evening taking sunset photos. Fred and Heidi were fantastic. Very easy going but well organised. Lunch and dinner provide was yummy. The walls we saw were not restored but original. Highly recommend Fred and Heidi if you want to explore china off the tourist path.
