Hi juliet,

I just wanted to say how highly I thought of the tour. I think our guide's name was bron. He was exceptional and deserves to be commended. All aspects of the tour were fantastic including the transport their and back, to the ability to see so much of the wall. The authentic lunch at the end of the tour was a really nice touch too.

Also I was wondering if by any chance you have the contact details of some of the other tourists? I had quite a good conversation with a couple from spain/France. Her name was Anna and her husband's name was Joseph. I had hoped to get in contact with them but didnt ask for any contact details at the time.

My wife and I first planned to rent a car to visit the Jinshanling Great Wall, but when we called the agency, Tina told me there was also the group tour for Jinshanling Great Wall hiking tour with tour guide, entrance ticket and lunch. It was good for us. We enjoyed the day on the Wall with other guests very much!

I heard that the Jinshanling Great Wall has the most original character so I chose the Jinshanling Great Wall(no shopping) bus tour during my holiday in Beijing. We started the tour early about 6:20am, then hiked at the Great Wall about 2.5 hours. It was so cool and excellent! Also this tour has no stop at any the souvenir shop. Highly recommend this tour for you!

My trip is over. I email you just want to express our deep thankfulness to you and arranged the best amazing great wall for us. I am so sorry that I wasted lot time to airport and I really need money exchange, because when I backed to my home, for Chinese Yuan is not useful for me. Thank you so much for the driver which was very helpful and showing us to the Bank. I will really recommend your company to my friends who would like a tour of Beijing.

The wild Great Wall is very great, less crowded than Badaling and others. I was very happy that this is no shopping trip and I could stay at the Wall for 3 hours. The Wall climb seemed little difficult as its steep, but I loved to walk one step by one step. After whole day trip, I felt exhausted. I was not regret to do it, and I will do it again next time!

Had a memorable time with our tour guide Happy. She is very nice and has a fluent speaking of English. The tour started in the early morning, a little sleepy but excited. The offered bread and water as breakfast, what a surprise! We explored Jinshanling Great Wall instead of Badaling or Mutianyu section, cause of it is original, wild, you know we are explorers, haha, highly recommend this tour.

We enjoyed the tour very much with the tour guide Monica. She was very nice and spoke fluent English. My wife is vegetarian and she prepared the vegetarian food for her. It was so considerable. We hiked about 2.5 hours at the Great Wall. The Jinshanling Great Wall was original and seemed like can see the ancient history there. Highly recommend this tour!

We went to hike the Jinshanling Great Wall joining the group tour. The bus picked us from hotel at 6:40am on time and we leave Beijing downtown about 7:50am. Then hiked about 3 hours after arriving the Great Wall. The Jinshanling Great Wall was original and good for hiking. It was cool to take the tour!

Written by: Wai Leung Pui ★★★★☆ Added: 2015-01-09

The Jinshanling Great Wall is the original part of Great Wall in Beijing and no shopping tour so I chose this one. But it is a little far from downtown so will be start earlier than other tours. But I enjoyed the tour very much. I hiked there about 3 hours during the tour.

Written by: Beth Thomas Parrish ★★★★★ Added: 2015-01-04

This is a MUST DO hiking! The hike itself is breathtaking in scenery and exertion! If you are in good overall health - DO IT! Only 300RMB per person will visit Jinshanling Great Wall tour with whole day tour. It was really wonderful day trip that I experienced.

Written by: Lars Ausen ★★★★☆ Added: 2015-01-02

I booked the Jinshanling Great Wall for 30th December first, but the agency told me there was no other guests took the tour that day, so I changed my tour date to 31th December. It was winter in Beijing so I wear warm and comfortable shoes to take the tour. We hiked about 3 hours and get warmer. The Jinshanling Great Wall looked very original and with ancient appearance.

Written by: Giang ★★★★★ Added: 2014-12-27

Excellent tour I took! My wife and I like hiking, so we chose Great Wall without any shopping stops and no one introduced us about some transportation, like cable car and so on. I had 3 hours more at the Great Wall. My wife felt very tired, and she always stopped to have a rest in each watch tower. And I had to take pictures for her. As my experience, if you are not very strong, I suggest you just take cable car.

Written by: Jennifer Jones ★★★★★ Added: 2014-12-09

It was really unique trip in my mind. I loved this trip, and it was really exhausted after 3 hours hiking, but it worth you to explore it. I loved this Wall not because it could stay there for 3 hours just for I no need to visit any shopping stops, I thought it really waste time for me no like any shopping. Highly recommend this tour if you only want to visit Wall, No shopping please.

Written by: Jessica ★★★★★ Added: 2014-12-01

Jingshanling Great Wall is really nice place that I could definitely hike there, no need to take any cable car or something for help. I did climb many steps, some of them seemed very steep, but I liked it very much. Totally I stayed at the Wall for 3 hours. I thought it was best trip I joined before. Highly recommend!

Written by: Anna Moberg ★★★★☆ Added: 2014-11-17

As I know Beijing has many Great Walls, and I liked wild one. I decided to visit Jinshanling Great Wall, although it is little far away from Beijing downtown area. It really worth you to spend 1 day to explore the wonderful day trip at the Great Wall, as it looked very nice, less crowded. Highly recommend!

Written by: Joyce Maressa ★★★★☆ Added: 2014-11-15

I joined Beijing bus tour few month ago. It was really a whole day trip that I was be picked very earlier morning at around 06:00am, and When I be backed from the Wall to Beijing downtown area is almost 18:00pm. I thought it was very deserve you to spend 1 day to visit it, since the Wall was very nice and I liked doing sports, so I suggest some one could try to visit there. The most important thing is the wall looked little wild, and less crowded.

Only 47 USD per person I took Jinshanling Great Wall with my family. We total 6 members, they arranged 1 van for us that include our tour guide and driver total 8 people. In the every morning, my tour guide and driver picked us from my hotel at 06:20am and gave us 1 free breakfast with bread. We were very exciting that about this tour after when we thought about it. I would definitely recommend this tour to my friends.

Thank you so much for your best service and I had such a most wonderful time in China Great Wall. Jinshanling Great Wall was very amazing, my tour guide and driver also very good. Please say thank you to my guide and driver. I had a good time with your excellent group.

I really appreciate Beijinglandscapes. com for arranging us to visit such a beautiful Great Wall. I liked this tour very much. My tour guide and driver are very helpful and patience. On the Wall less crowded, when I climb the Wall, I felt very tired and I just took cable car down as others recommended. It was really unforgettable trip in my mind. I will forward this to my family who come to China next few days later. Thanks again.

Hello Juliet,

I am back from the day tour to Jinshanling now and had a good day with IRENE. Thank you so much for your arrangement.

During the tour everything is under order. When I check in the hotel last night, the hotel tell me there is a message from Irene and she told me our pick up time is 6:20am in the morning. When I check in open my email, I also got an email from you tell me about the information. We met Irene on time this morning and pick up other guests. Then start the tour to Jinshanling Great Wall. One the way, Irene also prepare a sandwich for each guests. It was so considerate.

After we arrive at the Jinshanling Great Wall, we hike about 3 hours there. The Jinshanling Great Wall is original and Irene also told the history about this part of Great Wall. We took many beautiful pictures there. This part of Great Wall is really worth visiting and no souvenir shop stops during the tour.

Thank you so much for recommending us this tour and I will also recommend it to our friends to take the tour with you.

Have a good day!

Hi Tina,

The tour today was so wonderful. The tour guide was absolutely correct. The tour coach was clean, comfortable and the driver was skillful.

I think the Jinshanling Great Wall tour is a good choice for guests who like hiking. But it start a little earlier. The tour guide pick up us from the hotel around 6:30am. The guide also prepare some sandwiches for us, and it was so considerate. On the way, the tour guide also introduce the history and culture of the Great Wall. Also guide us the hiking itinerary there. Then we hike there about 3 hours. This part of Great Wall was original and different with the Badaling and Mutianyu I visited before. I will never regret chose this one.

The next year, I will also have chance to visit Shanghai, I will be in touch and look forward to your suggestions and taking tour with your guys.

Best Wishes,

What an adventure down to Jinshanling! I had so many blood-pumping experiences while exploring the wall. It was just as incredible as it could be! I had fun and completely enjoyed the adventure on the crumbling wall. Loved it!

Written by: Jessica ★★★★★ Added: 2013-12-27

Excellent Tour, The Great Wall really shocked me, I cant imagine that it was builded from Ming Dynasty without any mechanical Era, it was a huge huge project. Also the tour guide speaking good and fluent English, communicate with the tour guide smoothly. Impressive tour for me!

Written by: Aceituno Castro ★★★★★ Added: 2013-12-18

Really blood-pumping experience! Never done anything like that before! Definitely worthwhile and fun! Though hardly any bright color here, it was kind of awe-inspiring! Hiking was really really hard! Quite unexpected!

Everything was so organized and professional. Our guide was funny and informative in the same time, the tour was well organized. We'll always remember the good people we met, our excellent experience hiked on the Wall together with them and how magnificent Jinshanling Great Wall it was! Real structures of Ming Dynasty Great Wall with less renovation.

Hiking Jinshanling is a great moment that I did not regret for make it. The journey is really worth to take and the views were just awesome! We are very proud to finally reach the Wall. Would definitely recommend the tour. The lunch provided was great, along with the service. Everything went very smoothly!

It turned better and warmer, so I decided to hike the original Jinshanling section of the Great Wall. It was the first experience I had without shopping in it, just the pure traveling. Few visitors let this section of the Great Wall more quiet and solemn. In fact, it was the truly environment for this ancient great military project.

Written by: Elijah ★★★★★ Added: 2013-02-01

It was very stimulating to hike the Great Wall in such old winter. And I had this exciting experience 2 days ago. Tired of the most crowded sections of the Great Wall, I chose an original section to see the real Wall. The Great Wall at Jinshanling has fewer human repair, so it was hard to hike it, and fortunately I had a veteran tour guide accompanied me to enjoy the pure Great Wall tour.

Written by: Adair ★★★★★ Added: 2013-01-02

The hiking experience was fabulous. As the frozen winter, almost on one on the Wall, but it was a great chance for my friends and me to photograph the lonely Wall. The Great Wall at Jinshanling is unrestored as well as the Badaling section, which is the most valuable character of the Wall. Only on the section of the Great Wall, we had enjoyed the history explained by the tour guide. Besides, the mountain and Great Wall views all were impressed and marvelous. Recommended it to anyone who likes to enjoy the Great Wall and its background!

Written by: Emmanuel ★★★★★ Added: 2012-10-25

It was cheapest hiking to the Great Wall at Jinshanling, almost nobody here, so I had a good experience to the less human restoration section of the Great Wall. Meanwhile, I heard of the sound of wars here. Fantastic!

Written by: Caesar ★★★★★ Added: 2012-08-12

We stayed Beijing for half a month, and the highlight within this period was the hike to Jinshanling section of the Great Wall, and it was the first trip experience without the visiting in shops. Chosen this section as we like to enjoy the unrestored ruins of the Great Wall that snake through the ridges of mountain to as far as we could see. It was a pure hiking tour, and we all like it.

Written by: Bertram ★★★★★ Added: 2012-03-28

With the tight time for traveling, I had to choose a one day bus tour, however this short time trip really deeply impress me. Having not been to the Great Wall is not a true man. I choose Beijing day tour to Jinshanling and Simatai Great Wall. These two sections enjoy very different scenery. Jinshanling Great Wall enjoys beautiful scenery and I took a lot of pictures there while Simatai is a wild Great Wall. The steps are very steep and some parts are dangerous. Since I have never climbed so many steps in one day, after the trip, my legs are shivering.

Written by: Greg Riera ★★★★★ Added: 2011-12-12

Great experience. We booked this tour on line in Austrilia, Beijinglandscapes.com kept in touch with us via emails and solve problems for us patiently. we chose simatai great wall and Jinshanling great wall to visit in its natural state. it was well worth the extra effort to get there. our tour guide Landy was excellent, very friendly and informative. We will use this company again and highly recommend simatai and Jinshanling great wall and Beijinglandscapes.com. It was really a nice agency!
