We feel very lucky to have been able to experience the Great Wall with Steven. From start to finish the experience was easy, informative, thoughtful and well organised by Steven to ensure that we got the most out of our trip to the Great Wall. The hike was at our own pace and enabled us to see both a restored and unrestored section of the wall with not a single other person on it. The ability to enjoy and experience the Wall in this setting cannot be overstated! Steven shared stories and details from his extensive hiking on the Wall from over the years, as well as insight into the history and the changes that are taking place to this extraordinary sight. Whilst the hike is quite strenuous in the uphill sections, it is well worth it for the incredible views – and Steven is more than happy to go at a pace that suits and take time to rest and admire the views/take photographs. Finally, our lunch in the local village to finish off our hike before heading back to Beijing was amazing – especially the cold beers! We cannot thank Steven enough for showing us such a unique section of the Wall and making the experience so straight forward and stress-free in all aspects. All in all a wonderful guide that made for an absolute highlight of our time in China!
