My wife and I went with Peter on a two day hike and had a phenomenal time!! Peter was amazing and very kind and knowledgeable. The first day was great and we saw barely any other people. The second day we hiked a bit of a nicer part of the wall but there were more tourists that day. Both days were great though and the food and place where we stayed were so good!! Highly recommend this trip and ask for Peter if you can 👍🏽😁

The trip to the Great Wall was the highlight of my three-week trip to China. Through the expertise of my guide James, I was able to see wonderful landscapes and abandoned, non-tourist parts of the wall. He speaks a very good English and there were no misunderstanding in relation to language or cultural problems, because he accompanies only foreigners on tours. I can absolutely recommend it! Der Trip zur Großen Mauer war der Höhepunkt meiner dreiwöchigen China Reise. Durch die Expertise meines Guides James bekam ich wundervolle Landschaften und verlassene, nicht touristische Parts der Mauer zu Gesicht. Er spricht ein sehr gutes Englisch und es gab weder Verständnis- noch kulturelle Probleme, da er ausschließlich Ausländer auf Touren begleitet. Ich kann ihn absolut weiterempfehlen!

We had the best time on our two day trip. Despite slight delays due to heavy rain and thunder and lightening, the parts of the wall that James our guide took us were outstanding, they were quiet and peaceful, with very few tourists. James was the perfect gentleman at all times as was his driver. The overnight stay in the homestead was a lovely change from a hotel. Every meal we had was delicious and was local. We could not have done this ourselves. What I liked was that James really loved the wall and found it so pretty despite being there so many times. On our return to Beijing he went the extra mile and took us to the train station, collected our pre booked tickets and took us to the waiting room. Not sure if we would have sorted this ourselves. Thank you James. I thoroughly recommend you to anyone and everyone.

James our guide was a wealth a information, encouraging, supportive and just all round awesome. He tailored the trek to our pace and made it the most incredible experience along the Great Wall. Our driver, farmhouse hosts, restaurant and accommodation owners were also fantastic and filled us to the brim with delicious food, drinks, provided clean rooms, comfortable bedding and car transport. Highly recommend Great Wall Trekclub if you want to really see the wall away from crowds and learn about its history.
