I participated to several private tours with French friends and our guide James, as I am living in Beijing for four years now. Without James, we would never had the opportunity to explore non restored parts of Geat Wall. We followed him in beautiful wild scenery, sometimes challenging, far from the boring public crowded sections of the Wall. Each tour with James was magic, fun and friendly. I would have done even more tours if Covid had not hit the Country. I highly recommand our guide James, and I Thanks him so much for sharing HIS Great Wall with us !

James is always such a pleasant tour guide to have with us! He knows the routes, knows the history and has many local contacts to make the whole experience much easier and smoother. He is very generous with his time and knowledge. He's also flexible with people's varying fitness levels whilst keeping us on track and on schedule. I have enjoyed all my hikes with James! I'm very grateful to have him as a guide in the Beijing area! I'm happy to answer any questions about James and will definitely use his services again.

This review covers multiple interactions I have had with James over the past few years. I have been on multi-day trips with larger groups, single-day adventures with my family and friends, camping trips that included a lot of hiking with teenage boys, and have even put together my own hiking itinerary with input from James. The experience and scenery in each case has been a real treat and memories my family and I will never forget. Every positive comment I have heard and seen about James is true. We have had great memories and have spent a lot of time talking about and sharing them all. I have recommended Trekclub Tours and will continue to do so to all my friends and contacts who are looking for more adventure that take you off the beaten path.

Today was my second time hiking the Great Wall with James from Greatwall Trekclub Tours. We had an awesome day! James is a great guide- very professional and friendly, and just a kind hearted person. He speaks great English too! I’d highly recommend this company.

I have already done 5 hikes with James : Jiankou, Shixiaguan, Hefangkou, ... Great Wall. I highly recommend him ! Always with the smile, adaptable with the different personality of people 😉. He is very professional and gives us information about the Great Wall. The driver is also very kind. We usually go with a group of 8 friends. Sometimes, we have a picnic on the wall, sometimes we go to friendly guesthouses. The lunch is always top. Fresh, typical and diversified food, ... everybody can be happy ! Everybody enjoys these daily hikes !

Hope to discover other places in 2021 ! Our objective is to do the Beijing Knot !

Thank you James !

I took a solo trip to Beijing in November and booked a private hiking tour. My guide James was super nice, knowledgeable, and helpful, and the hike was spectacular! We were the only ones on the wall the entire time. After the hike we had a delicious lunch at a local inn and the private driver dropped me back off at my hotel. Next time I’m in Beijing I’ll be booking another tour and asking for James as my guide!

I am so glad I booked this trip, eventhough it is more expensive than other things offered. A friend who lived in Beijing recommended this section of the wall as an 'off the beaten track' alternative to really get a sense of the wall without the tourism.
First point you need to be fit, and in my opinion need hiking boots, the terrain is challenging on both the reconstructed and unreconstructed parts, it is very steep but my guide Jack provided crampons ( for the snowy sections) and a walking pole. He is extremely experienced and patient and was excellent company. He has a great sense of humour. We had quite a few laughs along the trek.
Second point is you wont believe how incredible the view is from all angles and NO ONE ELSE in your photos. Its a miracle! It felt authentic and calm.
The meal at the end is abundant and excellent.
A good safe driver ( which can be hit and miss in China) . Well worth the investment.
Xie Xie to Jack for making my last day in Beijing one I'll never forget.

Attention Ladies and Gentlemen! Everyone wants to see the Great Wall but if you want to see it in the most authentic touristy way you have came to the right place. I am a solo traveler and was a little nervous about this. James met me at my hotel with a smile. Lee the driver opened my door and made me feel instantly comfortable. As we took the drive James was giving me bits and pieces of history. When we got to where we were being let out (the side of the road) I was shocked. From there we started this hike. Straight up the wall! We walked (a few miles I assume) at my own pace ON THE WALL! It was AWESOME. As we walked, James continued to tell me information about my surroundings. We reached a point that felt like I was on top of the world! Fantastic views all around me. Then we hiked down to an authentic Chinese home with a table full of food. Not just food, a table full of deliciousness! The entire day was above and beyond and I would do it again tomorrow in a heartbeat! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

This year I brought the rest of my family to experience the awesome trip to the wall as my daughters and I did last year. We knew we would have an excellent experience again with James but wanted to see a different section of the wall. Jinshanlin was just beautiful and challenging at the same time. After the long trek, we were treated to a local Chinese meal. Again excellent food. My family was so impressed with James they didn’t want another guide to show us the Forbidden city and summer palace. We asked if James would bring us another day and he obliged.
If you are looking for an informative, helpful and kind guide, James will plan all other particulars to ensure your trip is rewarding and without a hitch. My wife, 3 teenagers and I all thank you and hope to see you again in the future.

Thank you,
The Websters
