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.
