Since 2003, Great Wall Adventure Club has been bringing the excitement and wonder of the Great Wall of China to over 26,000 satisfied hikers from 55 countries around the world. Since we began operating our Great Wall hiking and trekking programs, some of our clients have included Google, NBC Television, British Airways, NASA and Microsoft. Our commitment to customer service and satisfaction has led our Great Wall programs to receive positive write-ups in prestigious publications such as The New York Times, USA Today, National Geographic, CNN and Fodor's China. Great Wall Adventure Club was also featured in an episode of TLC's 19 Kids & Counting. While our bread and butter has always been Great Wall hiking and trekking, we also specialize in all forms of China travel and touring, from the snow-capped peaks of Tibet to the rolling sand dunes of the Gobi Desert. For 2014, we have developed new express train tours to Xian, home of the immortal Terracotta Warriors. For more information please visit our informative and constantly edited and updated English website where you can find Great Wall and China tours galore!

My husband and I chose to do route 2AA, which is a two-day hiking trip with an overnight camp in a watch tower. It was simply fabulous and it was the highlight of our trip to China! On day one, we hiked for 10kms from Gubeikou to Jinshanling; both unrestored sections. At the end of our hiking on day one,... More

My wife and I did the two day imperial camping tour and needless to say, we are not disappointed! Oliver, our guide for the two days, was A-Mazing and the experience really was once in a lifetime. How many times will I ever get to see the sun rise on the great wall of China?

Amazing to sleep in a watchtower, in a nice tent, wake up in the middle of the night to a full moon, wake up at down to see the sunrise - with towers and walls silouetted.
