Walking the Great Wall

A superb introduction to China!

5
Flying into Beijing, visiting Tiananmen Square and walking some off-the-beaten-path sections of the Great Wall was a wonderful introduction to China. As usual, excellent local guidance and support from Exodus. The trek itself is more 'challenging' than 'tough' and usually left me feeling there was just a little bit of that 'extra action' that was missing at the end of the day. That being said, if you're a first-time hiker or looking for short bursts of quadricep-burning challenges with lots of photo-ops, this is a great place to start.

Walking the Great Wall

A Great Walk

5
A personal journey into the unknown became a truly memorable experience. My first Exodus trip into a country I didn't know and with people I didn't know. With the wisdom of restrospect, I possibly should have known that such a venture would bring together like minds - adventure seeking, fun-loving, witty, sociable, interesting lives - yes, all of these. I was so lucky to be thrown into this group of people and they made it for me.

Great walks on the Great Wall

It is a myth that you can see the Great Wall of China from space. But close up it is an amazing structure, with a fascinating history. This walk took us to parts of the Wall that other tourists never reach. And with a guide who brought Chinese history and culture to life. It is a strenuous walk, with lots of steep ups and downs - I lost count of the number of times we encountered "the thousand steps" or "the stairway to heaven" - but it is well worth the effort.

Up and Down on The Great Wall

A great trip, which opens the eyes and the mind to the achievement that is the great wall. Hard work but gratifying. There is no other way to put it into context other than to "climb" and see for yourself.

Walking the Great Wall of China

I have waited for the last 3 years to go on this trip having been stopped by one thing or another, but now I have finally done it and it was everything that I had hoped for and more. It was tiring, it was exhausting, it was Magic. The whole thing from start to finish was perfect, (well apart from the flight home) the guide met me at the airport and looked after me until he dropped me off to catch my flight home, thank you Jerry.

What a great holiday! From Walking the Wall, the food, Beijing, the amazing acrobat show, eating in the 'hutongs', seeing the Terracotta Warriors and travelling on the overnight train (on the Xian extension) - I enjoyed it all and can't enthuse enough about the entire trip. I've never been anywhere 'out of the ordinary' before this holiday or travelled with Exodus and I would totally recommend this particular holiday and the company.

What a fabulous holiday, off the beaten track, seeing a bit more of real China. Can't recommend it enough. We had a great group of people, a mix of singles and couples and we all got along well. I thoroughly enjoyed the overnight train experience to Xi'on too. The walking was at a good pace and the hills and steps a welcome challenge.

Fantastic trip – well organised, excellent itinerary and a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The walking is pretty tough with hundreds of steps, but the amazing views are worth it. It’s hard to appreciate the scale of the wall until you see it stretching out for miles in every direction. The accommodation was better than I’d expected, as was the food. Sadly, I tore a ligament halfway though, which put me out of action for the rest of the trip, but based on the days I did do, I’d recommend this holiday to anyone.
