"If you are browsing for a terrific, trustworthy tour company in China -- look no further. I loved my experience with The Great Wall Adventure Club! " -- Scott Hanson, American TV Sportscaster.
We guarantee to take you to those unrestored, unspoiled, off-the-beaten-path sections of the Great Wall that are largely left alone from the swarms of tourists, giving you an intimate and memorable Great Wall experience. The parts of the Wall we trek are often empty and peaceful. We want to share with you the true Great Wall, with its peaks and valleys, and its beautiful and mysterious ruins. We have the unique access and permission to camp on the Wall.
Our expert English-speaking guides are certified and well-trained. They are engaging, professional, informative, helpful, and punctual. They are also an excellent source of China history and Asian food.They walk with you every step of the way, managing you challenge while providing historical context to the Great Wall and surrounds. They receive tons of positive reviews on TripAdvisor from year to year.
While you are away from Beijing to go for a remote hiking with us, eating is important to ensure you are strong enough to meet the challenges. We ask the local restaurants or guesthouses to prepare you gourmet lunch and dinner, giving you an amazing opportunity to taste some authentic and traditional rural Chinese dishes. We also respect your dietary preference and accommodate you with gluten-free or vegetarian food, for example.

When it comes to considering your Great Wall tour and China tour provider, here are some other factors to consider: We have the most efficient communication channel available to Chinese travel industries. While most Chinese agents take off weekends and nights, we don’t. We understand our customers can't afford waiting for more than 15 hours or even 72 hours to hear back from us. And when a client books a tour, it usually involves frequent contacts. Only Great Wall Adventure Club can respond to clients within one hour or almost instantly. GWAC’s office works according to a Western schedule. In turn, most "companies" that you will find on Google who provide similar services, are often a one-person business, not an organization. As a result, they usually don't have qualified tour guides able to lead their programs.
"Great Wall Adventures were SOOOO easy to deal with. Vivian is so prompt with her replies and helpful. We were able to do etransfers from our bank in Canada to their bank account in Canada, which was easy. I asked her about trying to get train tickets for the overnight train to Xi'an and on the weekend Great Wall Adventure Club went to the train station and bought us tickets! They were ready for us when we arrived in China. We planned our own trip to China, by contacting different companies for private tours for the different places we were going to visit. While most of the companies were really good, Great Wall Adventure Club really stood out above the rest in regard to their customer service, advice and quality of services offered and guides." - Colleen B, Canadian living in Bangkok, Thailand, on TripAdvisor.
