  • One of the best parts of the Wall I have walked, good access but not over-crowded, and parts of the Wall are very original. This Viator tour worked very well.

  • Chan was AMAZING! Had an amazing time - went on Sept.29th - few days before the most busiest time of the year and China.

    Our tour had almost no people on the wall - Fantastic! It ended up being just the 5 of us, including Chan.. who did everything to make the hike a memorable experience.

    Helpful tip - Chan is as good as they come, ask him for other tours when you're in the area. This tour had zero tourist trap shops ie. silk shop, tea shop, pearl shop, jade shop etc. Loved it!

  • Great part of the wall! Get your monies worth with every step climbed. Altitude and rough conditions of this section of wall are NOT for the faint of heart! Book this tour!!!

  • No vi reviews en español, así que yo lo haré.

    Si quieres contemplar un buen paisaje, la muralla en una de sus partes más auténticas y estar completamente solo en ella y disrutar una de las mejores caminatas que puedes hacer no tienes que dudar en hacer este tour.

    La empresa súper puntual, un tour muy pequeño, muy atentos con el grupo y la comida que nos dieron al terminar el recorrido bastante buena.

    No pueden morir sin vivir esta experiencia. Complicado ir por tu cuenta hasta esta zona a menos que se renten un carro o paguen 800 Yuanes por un taxi desde Beijing.

    Si tienen alguna duda dejen su pregunta y les intento ayudar a resolverla.

  • First time on the great wall, but we really think that we made the best choice by booking this tour. Thanks to Nancy

  • After booking the tour online, a week prior for the Sunday tour, we did not receive ay confirmation from the third party tour operator China Travel Depot on the pickup time from our hotel. We asked our hotel to call on our behalf. It wasn't until the day before the scheduled tour, in the late afternoon, they called our hotel reception and confirmed the pickup time as 6:20am. The driver arrived promptly the next morning. We were picked up in a small van, but then transferred to a bigger bus after picking up more passengers. From there the tour started. When we arrived about 10:30am at the Simitai entrance it started raining cats and dogs, complete downpour, Our tour guide Chan suggested we buy ponchos from the store. It was recommended that we walk up to the Great Wall and take the cable car back down after 90 RMB extra. Please be aware we were not informed beforehand of this extra cost. If we did not want to pay for the cable car, we would have to separate from the group and walk all the way back the way we came. However, given our exhaustion by the end, we were grateful not to have to climb the steep stairs back down. The spectacular view was well worth the climb. Thankfully, the rain cleared up by 11:30am. Although some parts of the wall were extremely difficult due to the steep steps, we were not rushed and were able to take our time. There were a few other tourist trekking the wall as well, while we were there. But we were able to get lots of pictures without anyone else in the photos. Lunch after the climb was delicious. We finished a little after 1pm. By 2pm, we were eating at one of the restaurants in the water town, at the bottom of the wall near the entrance. The drive back took a bit longer due to traffic. We did not get back to our hotel until almost 5:30pm. All in all, it was a great tour and worth the value.

    We had fun, but not what we booked. they take to a place called Simitai instead. While Simitai is good, it is not Jinshanling. It says in the subtext of the booking that Jinshanling is closed and they take you elsewhere, but I guess i did not read carefully enough. Regardless... why the hell are you selling a tour to a place that is closed? Stop selling a tour titiled JINSHANLING!!!! sell a tour called SIMTAI!!! ridiculous, that you are selling something and delivering something else. Seriously VIATOR, traveling in china is confusing enough... be a strait shooter, advertise what you are offering, and deliver what you are selling.

  • The tour was great! The only reason I give it 4 stars instead of 5 was because the confirmed pick up time I was told was 8:30am, but at 6:15am there was a knock at my hotel door saying it was time to go! Luckily I was able to throw on my things and get out in time, but not a very nice way to wake up

  • This tour was amazing!

  • Great tour. Great guide. You're able to take the walk at your own pace. Fantastic views from the Wall at Jinshanling. We were there on the day of a Great Wall marathon.
