Here you will have the opportunity to climb up either the North or South Face of the Wall.

This was an amazing place I couldn’t walk it all as the steps are huge, my brother did though, it would be a mistake to come to China and not visit this place

Pros: It was fast, they picked up, and left us next to our hotel, it was low season so only the two of us on the tour. Cons: The guide and driver think you are: 1) ignorant 2) stupid 3) full of money 4) they want to finish as early as possible 5) they don't give a sh*t about you The guide did the minimum explanation and pushed us through the full tour to go faster, so they both could finish early and go home. They convinced us to go on a different part of the wall because of "parking problems" for the part of the wall we wanted to visit. We hade 1h30 on the wall, which was quite short, and after that the food was bad. The tea and jade shops are mandatory stops that were not advertised beforehand, and are completely useless.

I had a great time on my tour. Cynthia was a great guide answering all of my questions. And if you need a fantastic picture taken of you while on your visit have her do it, she knows all the angles for a great photo of yourself and the sights.
