We went on a 3 hour hike to an unrestored part of the wall. It was a nice arrangement with knowledgeable guides. It was a varied group and the guides split up so that all of us could enjoy the hike in our own paste.

Well organized and expertly led hike on the stone valley section of the wall. Lunch was delicious too. Highly recommend. We preferred hiking with a small group to a private tour - our teens enjoyed talking with young adults living around the world.
