If you want to tour the great wall, avoid this company like the plague. My wife and I took the tour, only to discover they had charged us double the quoted price. Then they surprised everyone on the tour. When we reached the great wall,...More

Challenging and crowded but we can say we’ve visited The Great Wall. Lots of souvenir shops and cold beer. It was rainy the morning we went so pretty slippery.

I decided to see the Great Wall at Badaling, as my research showed it to be one of the lesser crowded sections. However, that still meant the parking lot which was very large was filled to capacity, we took a cab and he dropped us...More

very crowded, slippery under the rain. Preferably visit the other parts of the great wall will be better.

The place to visit for every tourist in the world. This part of the Wall is one of the most interesting to take great pictures. You can enjoy more relaxed views during midday, avoiding the crowds. Breathtaking views from north to south. Just amazing
