"We just completed the 4B hike on the Great Wall, then a two day trip to Xi'an with this company. They were very well organized, and the trip did not disappoint. Great Wall Adventure Club made booking the trip easy and quickly responded to all of our questions during the planning process, as well as tailoring the itinerary to our specific requests. The hike was fantastic, camping in a watch tower was amazing and the food was authentic and delicious. Our Great Wall tour guide Danny was really friendly and knowledgeable, and made this experience unforgettable for us, and our driver was friendly and good. There is no way we would have been able to experience the Great Wall this way on our own...
