Perfect Great Wall experience
If you want visit the Great Wall „off the beaten track“ this is your tour. Both sections (Gubeikou and Jinshanling) that we visited have been almost empty (during the week). Our guide Leo was fantastic, not only as a guide to the wall but as well as photographer bringing his own professional camera (he is also offering special visits to forbidden city with a focus on photography).
We can really recommend booking your trip with Beijing Walking Tours.
Take this tour if you want to see the Great Wall!
Our tour guide, Adele, was amazing!! I highly recommend this tour (and her!) if you're looking for an authentic way to see the Great Wall. We experienced the almost empty "Wild Great Wall" at Gubeikou and enjoyed unprecedented views first before heading over to the restored wall at Jinshanling for sunset. Be prepared for a LOT of walking and some steep stairs. The sunset was stunning and we finished the day with a family-style meal at a local restaurant. The food was great too. 10/10 recommend!

Perfect Great Wall tour with private photographer
What an amazing tour!
First a short hike up to an unrestored section of the wall, then to the restored section for the sunset.
In between we had a great lunch at a restaurant using all fresh ingredients.
Our guide Leo is a passionate photographer and showed us the best places for pictures in each light! And he took some amazing shots of us, too!
Thank you Leo for an amazing tour of the Great Wall. How wonderful to see it in the snow. The locations were perfect with very few other people around. Also the photos you sent through after are fantastic and a great reminder of our special trip.
