5 Traveler Reviews

  • Amazing, my second trip to the great wall. This section was much better. Not crowded and stunning, great to see some non restored sections too.

  • Excellent trip to Jinshanling - would do this again.

  • Fabulous tour - December was a great time (albeit it very cold) to see the wall as it was virtually deserted. Stunning views and definitely the highlight of our trip.

  • This company went above and beyond to give me a great experience. The tour guide was friendly and personable and easy to understand. After hiking with stunning ancient views we had a phenomenal home style prepared meal. Truly unforgettable

  • Pretty good. Friendly guide, spoke English reasonably well. Didn't seem to know too much about historical things.
