Mutianyu Great Wall small group tour, Great Wall car rental service, Beijing airport layover tour. Jinshanling Great Wall hiking towards to Simatai was amazing !"Not been on the Great Wall, not a great man."—Chinese proverb.The least spoiled part of the Great Wall.The hike from the west Jinshanling to the east Simatai is the most challenging Great Wall hike in Beijing.

At first we were unsure which part of the wall to discover on our first trip to Beijing. We knew we would hire a private driver rather than take a crowded tour. After posting on tripadvisor's forum and meeting two lovely people, we set up...More

Wow! That's all you can say! We just returned from this section of the Great Wall and it was an awesome experience. Like other readers we have seen the tourist sections and were reasonably impressed, but they were over done...in terms of re-making the wall...More

Don't have anything to compare it to, but this was a great 3/4 day trip from Beijing. We spent about two hours on the Wall itself. The views were so magnificent that I could have spent more time, but the variety of the Wall itself...More

Have been to Beijing several times and the Great Wall never fails to fascinate me. Badaling and Mutianyu are restored sections of the wall and very touristy and crowded although the scenery is still lovely. The most untouched and beautiful portion,in my opinion, is the...More

I won't repeat what many others have said. The Great Wall at Simatai is a truly amazing experience. My recommendation for people who have the time is to take a room at one of the hotels or guest houses INSIDE the entrance gate. This gives...More

We did the 10km walk between Jinshanling and Simatai - awesome (in the old-fashioned sense of the word). It was, without doubt, the best experience i had in Beijing. I agree with other reviews that the best direction is Jinshanling to Simatai - if for...More
