We did this tour about 2 weeks ago in mid-Oct. The weather was perfect. It was not too many people maybe because it was a Monday. The bus dropped us off at Jinshanglin and picked us up at Simatai. The whole journey is about 3hrs, but take your time! We did the entire trip in about 2hrs and I wish we stayed a bit longer on the Great Wall. Some parts were VERY steep, but if you're in a decent shape, it's totally doable. Also this is not a guided tour which is perfect for us. There's only 1 way to go and no way to get lost. We liked the fact that we can just go at our own pace. If you want to avoid the crowed, don't mind the walk/climb, and prefer a self-guided tour, this is for you.
Perfect tour! Exactly what I was looking for. Easy meeting place outside a metro stop, small mini-bus so limits the size of the group to 14 (we had 12 of the day I went), no unnecessary stops or time-wasting and good 3 hours exploring a very quiet section of the Great Wall. The Wall itself was one of the greatest things I've ever seen and well worth the trip. And our tour guide was lovely and informative.
The tour included return trip from Beijing to the Great Wall. The drive itself was OK, also did one stop each way (approx 3h drives). We only missed a bit more general information about the Great Wall while driving and not while hiking as we were dedicated to photos there (and thus quickly lost the guide).
Fabulous day... had the wall to ourselves... very helpful guide. Good to bring some little snacks for the hike and if it's summer time maybe bring an extra shirt and lots of sunscreen.
Iris, our guide was really information with a good sense of humour. Thanks Iris for make this pleasant
My husband and I joined this tour in January 2019. We were a group of about 6 travelers total, along with our driver and our guide, Jen. Jen was amazing! She was very informative and a lot of fun to talk with about both the history of the Great Wall and the culture in Beijing. She even gave us recommendations for other places to visit in the city as well as a few restaurants to eat at. We had dinner at one those restaurants that night and it was one of our best meals in Beijing. The Great Wall itself was such an incredible experience. Besides our group, we only saw a handful of others walking the wall at Jinshanling that morning and felt that we mostly had it to ourselves. Driving an extra hour was definitely worth it. We're so happy we joined this tour and would recommend it to anyone else.
Really beautiful hiking route. Perfect for taking fotos and enjoying the view. Good organisation and guide. The hike can be quite challenging, there are many steep stairways.
We had great weather which I'm sure made a big difference. In any event, the experience is practically guaranteed to be one you'll never forget. And if you stay alert and with a little bit of luck, you'll see these amazing birds called the Chinese Pheasant with about a 1.5 metert wing span and a very long, thin tail that fly low, swoop then practically crash land into the trees. Apparently some people who have visited the Great Wall many times have no idea they are even there. But I saw five, and a few other people I met saw some too. So keep your eyes peeled!
This was an amazing experience. The views from the wall were amazing. Enjoyed the hike. Our guide Jen was very personable and helpful.
An excellent day and a great section of the Great Wall to hike! The pick-up spot was convenient and the bus was on time. The ride was pleasant and there was a supply and rest stop along the way. When we reached Jinshanling, we received an orientation and a review of the map. We than had three hours to hike a section of the wall. It was a moderate hike with a few steep up and downs, but nothing too challenging. There was enough time to complete the hike with a few of the faster people having time to extend their hike. There were opportunities along the wall to buy water, beer, ice cream, and souvenirs. This is not a common hiking spot so not at all crowded and excellent photo opportunities!
