The best tour ever. Been on many around the world and this was the best yet. Fabulous fun. I was tentative, but my husband was right, it was the only way to see The Great Wall. The trip out was fast, cold and with a minor breakdown. That worked out rather good, as it gave us a chance to get to know our guides. A stopoff at the Temples was lovely... Silence, only the sound of the wind in the trees. We arrived via a wee village and then the hard work began. Up and up and up.... The views were amazing. Not another human soul in sight. The wall is steep and it is a bit of a difficult climb, but worth every bit of the climb. Lunch was a bit blustery with high winds, but a glass of wine and a beautiful lunch cooked by Ricardo was just what was needed. The climb down was a bit steep, but a few laughs along the way. A fantastic and unforgettable day. Unbelievable to have walked the wall with just two guides and ourselves. In fact, I think it his tour should be kept a big secret. Thanks for the champagne Yves, it was enjoyed whilst we warmed up. Couldn't keep the smiles off our faces for two days!!!
Grazie.... Wonderful memories.
