Hiking & Sleeping on the Great Wall

After searching the internet for two day hikes, it was clear that Real Adventures provided a unique opportunity to not only hike on the wall but also sleep on the wall. Therefore it was an easy decision to book with Real Adventures who ensured a memorable trip. We booked the route starting in Gubeikou, hiking to Jinsgangling and ending in Simatai.
During the booking process Real Adventures ensured that we were kept well informed of the itinerary and responded to all our qeries via email in a timely manner. Our guide for the two day hike was Gary, who was extremely personable, friendly & very knowledgeable. We also had a driver that collected & returned us to our hotel. Lunch was provided by our guide and we had a traditional Chinese evening meal included before heading back to the wall at Jingshanglin to sleep on a watchtower. A light breakfast was provided the next morning & a sumptuous Chinese lunch ensured we wouldn't go home hungry!
Overall we found our dealings with Real Adventures in both the pre-booking stage & during the tour an absolute pleasure & would highly recommend using their service to ensure a memorable trip
