" We have just come back from our private tour on the Jinshanling section of the Great Wall organised by The Great Wall Adventure Club.
Oliver took us to some restored and unrestored section during our 9km of hiking, where he took the time to share China's long history with us. This tour was an athletic one, with many steps up and down over the beautiful terrain as we hiked from tower to tower. It was also a special tour excellent for keen photographers as we finished at sunset on a more rugged section of unrestored wall.
The day was perfect in all ways: we had the luck of bright skies, not too cold, a magnificent sunset and the attention of our very helpful guide, Oliver.
I recommend this trek for those who like to enjoy the unspoilt view and photographers looking for some perfect shots of the Wall. I also really recommend Oliver as a guide for this tour and other tours he may guide on the Wall or in Beijing. "

"I called in the evening around 7pm the day before the October 1st National Holiday. The person on the line was very courteous, spoke very good English and answered all my questions. It had rained that day so I even asked about the weather for the sunset hike and he said it would be a gamble. I took the gamble and won!! When I heard the price I thought maybe it was a little expensive, but trust me it is not. If you rent just a car alone and no guide it is half your cost. But with no guide you can get easily lost. This company is the best bet and your tour is a private tour. Trust me, book the private tour if you can afford it. It is well worth it.
Trust me, Jinshanling to Gubeikou with the sunset at Gubeikou is well worth it. The walk was moderately fast. We reached Gubeikou just as the sun was setting and spent some time watching the night fall. It was amazing and romantic. Night fell as we walked back and it was very nice to also see the stars.
Lastly, I highly recommend The Great Wall Adventure Club to anyone wanting a great experience to see the Great Wall."
