Great Wall Tours & Holidays

Mao Zedong said, ‘He who has not climbed the Great Wall is not a true man.'

The Chairman might have been overstating things a tad, but we can say that climbing the Great Wall is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience (unless you happen to climb it twice). Snaking from Manchurian ruins in Liaoning, through Beijing province, and ending in a few wind-scoured remains in the Gobi desert, it’s the undisputed emperor of China landmarks. There are obviously dozens of Great Wall of China tours running out of Beijing (and Shanghai), but our local guides come with a few extra perks. English speaking, expertly trained, and with an encyclopedic knowledge of the Wall and its history – there’s no-one better in the business.

China Highlights

Todd · Traveled March 2024
China Highlights not quite as long as stated on the web site in my opinion. But, this trip is fantastic with the highlight for us being the Great Wall. You visit an area of the wall that is three hours outside of Beijing. With the views of something out of a movie. Truely break taking in every way. We would recommend arriving a few days early as there is a lot to see in Shanghai. And the food on the trip was outstanding.

We really enjoyed the China Highlights trip! Highly recommend for the small group size: 16 people max per tour (ours only had 10 people). Go during the off season, it's much less crowded. Our tour leader was very fluent in both Chinese and English. We had a great time.

North China Getaway

Lucy · Traveled March 2024
An amazing trip, so much covered in 12 days, Alan our guide was brilliant, came home with a better understanding of china and its people. The wall was definatly the highlight for me, trip was full on, lots of walking and travelling, but we got to experience so much, so was totally worth it. China was incredibly cheap too, a fabulous, insightful trip was had by the whole group.

This is a wonderful quick trip of China with a packed itinerary! It’s great fun and a great introduction to the country. Our guide William made everything easy and fun (including meal times for the vegetarians)! I recommend this trip to anyone who wants an introduction to China!
