What people are saying about Simatai
The experience has been very good. On the day of the appointment, it was raining a lot. Peter, the guide, gave us the option of doing the excursion the next day. We agreed on everything and the next day we set the course. The best thing I did was pay more money to go to the part farthest from the wall. At the most, in four hours of travel, we only met 50 people. The guide is unique. He knows all the history of the great wall. In fact, he has written a book. He took care of everything: cold drinks whenever we want, chocolates, maps ... Also Peter is a professional photographer and during the tour he took photos with his camera. At trip back to beijing gave us a pen with all the pictures and the artistic quality was outstanding. I would repeat this same excursion with the same guide. His name is Peter Cao. The eight hours of excursion do not disappoint
The guide took us to a more remote section of the Great Wall where there were no crowds, even though it was a public holiday. He was knowledgeable and friendly and took trouble in answering our questions. I would recommend a good pair of walking shoes as the climb up to the wall is steep and demanding as are some sections of the wall. I would definitely recommend this tour.
Guide, transport and organisation average but lovely quiet part of the wall and attractive water town. Recommend.
