Walking the Great Wall


5 Stars

Fantastic trip , each section seemed like a new holiday eg our first few days in Bejing, The Great Wall, and Zian.

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

For me the best part was the walk along the wall , looking forward and back at the winding wall and the beautiful scenery away from all the tourist , we felt like we were the only group there and so it was very special. It was great to come back to homesteads in the evening to lovely hosts , comfortabe accomadation and excellent food.

It was good for the soul.

WE had two extra days in Bejing and were put up in a hotel on outskirts of city, some of us went for a walk and i have great memories of strolling through a corn field and wanting the holiday to continue.

What did you think of your group leader?

Kevin , Our group leader was outstanding , very caring and protective , always on duty 24x7 throughout the whole holiday. Nothing was too much trouble for him and catered for everyones needs 100%.

Kevin was also very informative re wall etc and had a great sense of humour , his english was excellent.

Kevin got to know all our likes and dislikes re food and could order all our food for us , which made our meals all the more enjoyable.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Our guide Kevin very quickly got to know our taste re food etc and would talk to host in homesteads to make sure everyone was catered for. Bring half of the clothes you think you might need.

The only down side of the holiday was that through no fault of our own we missed a connection from Bejing on the way home and spent 2 extra days in China, our flight from Zian to Bejing was delayed and hence we missed the connection so make sure and check your own flight times when booking , that if there should be a delay that you will still have time for connection or have insurance to cover same.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

I will go back to China, The Terraccota warriors were a wonderful sight , Zian a lovely town , here we cycled the wall and had a lovely day.

Untill the next time .
