Aside from the pick up which took place with a little delay, the excursion is superb and I would definitely recommend it. Fundamental requisites to complete the journey of about 5 km are suitable shoes (gymnastics) and good physical condition that allows you to walk easily even in very sloping parts and very rough, steep and rocky roads; not recommended for young and old children. The restaurant is good and serves typical Chinese food. The guide is useful more than anything else to indicate the route and as a support. The cable car is advisable (not included in the price), even if the first part can be done easily on foot like a walk (it takes an hour at most). The time available to complete the entire journey is abundantly adequate. Unique experience

Excellent stretch to travel with relatively few people. There are even places where there are no people, because it is an area of difficult access since it is not restored. It should be considered that it also has very steep areas, so I would not recommend it for older people or very young children.

Great area to visit the Great Wall of China

The pick up was timely, the trip to the place was good, the breakfast was terrible, just a sweet bread and water. We suggest taking snacks. The tour guide Emily was always helpful and helpful. The wall is a wonderful place, with immense history and great importance. During the ride there are always spots with water and snacks, it is not necessary to go too loaded. The lunch was very good with variety of traditional dishes. We advise a lot.
