Great Wall Hiking Specialist

Creating & offering a variety of  tours of hiking, trekking, walking and camping on the Great Wall of China
 in Beijing and ​surrounding Hebei, Shanxi areas since 2009.

     As a leader on the market, we focus on hiking tours on the Great Wall only, which encourages us to polish our itinerary and improve our service constantly. Our trips have all been carefully researched and examined before being launched by our hiking guides team. We are a ground service operator, not just a wholesaler, middleman or travel agency who has no control of cost and quality of service. We keep our tours small and pay close attention to our service and quality. We believe in “small is beautiful”. Our trips have proven to be very popular among more than 12,000 travelers in the past 10 years. We’re No. 1 among Great Wall Tour operators in Beijing.

Escape the Crowds

The world-famous Badaling section is EXTREMELY busy all year round. We do not hike busy sections of the Wall! We mainly hike on wild, remote, original, less-visited and safe sections of the Wall. The main sections covers Jinshanling, Simatai West, Jiankou, Mutianyu, Gubeikou, Huangyaguan etc. You will have chance to walk on world cultural heritage, try local home-made food, communicate with local farmers, enjoy the rural scenery and learn of the locals daily lives. Safety is also our priority and we try to keep the balance between experience and safety, making sure you’re always in safe hands.

Professional hiking guides team

There are 9 professional hiking guides in our team. All our hiking guides are carefully selected, well trained and well paid, and you will be able to enjoy a friendly and genuine relationship with our guides.

They all have a minimum of 3 years’ experience of guiding people on the Great Wall. Three of them spend 200 days a year on the Wall. They provide a full escort for clients from the beginning to the end of the hiking on the Wall.  All our guides speak fluent English, and will be happy to answer your questions, organize meals, check your guesthouses, accommodate your requirements and help with any other special needs you may have.

We respect and appreciate all the hard work our guides do. It’s not easy to be a hiking guide for all four seasons on the Great Wall (35 Celsius in summer and -20 Celsius in winter). They are the core assets of our team.

Quality western service 

Our team had been engaged in travel industry for 19 years. We know western travellers very well. We have a detailed policy for accommodations, meals, snacks, water, vehicles, guides, drivers etc. We contract accommodations, car rental companies and other related parties directly. We even set up our own accommodation project in Gubeikou Great Wall recently to improve the quality control!

We prepare cold water in summer, hot coffee in winter, ponchos in rain and trekking poles. All you need is just a will to conquer the Wall. Our feedback collection also help us improve our service constantly.

Non-Commissioned shopping policy

We’ve been employing strict non-commissioned shopping policy in all our operations since establishment in 2009. We have zero tolerance for any kind of commissioned shopping stops. We firmly believe that clients should spend their valuable time on the Wall instead of in commissioned shopping stops, and our guides win respects by their top-notched service.
