A happy vacation is not just a destination, but also the people you meet along the way. China Travellers is your reliable local friend in China. We organize Great Wall hiking, trekking and camping: stepping off the beaten trail to witness the remote, historic and unspoiled Great Wall. We also offer distinctive historical and ecologically sensitive trips to all corners of rural Beijing. We will help you explore the pristine beauty of the natural landscape-from high mountains, ancient temples to rural villages. Our hikes are non-invasive and non-exploitative, preserving these natural sites for generations to come. Our other events include cultural activities like city explorations, Chinese Cuisine, Chinese philosophy, Chinese tea ceremony, etc. Welcome to China and we are looking forward to working with you.

It was the best part of my trip to China. We hiked a more rural part of the wall over two days and also camped. The hike itself was fairly challenging but not impossible at all (I'm in no way a pro-walker either). Over the duration of the trip we saw less than 10 people which made it all the... More

What an amazing trek, Sonia is fabulous, knowledgable, great English, great fun and so easy to get on with. The visit to the village before we climbed the wall was awesome the 'banquet' of the most delicious food was offered to us and was the best food cooked with home produce. The climb was for about an hour steep but... More

Sonia is amazing. She's so nice and informative, always smiling. She lets you stop and do your thing and will wait for you up the wall a bit. We did the camping on the Great Wall for the autumn full moon. It was a beautiful hike, actually 2 hikes. One in the early afternoon and the other to the tower... More

It was great hiking and spending the night on the Great Wall, away from the big crowds of tourists that you see in other places. The views were fantastic. We joined Sonya, the tour guide during the mid-autumn festival for a full-moon camp adventure on the wall. It was amazing! She is not only very knowledgeable but her English is... More

I am always hesitant before entrusting my safety and comfort with another individual. Especially when I'm in a new and unfamiliar country. After this experience with Sonia I see that there is much to gain in taking such a risk. The trip was wonderful. Sonia is a great guide, she is funny, kind, interesting, patient and considerate. The trip was... More

Can't recommend this trip enough! We had an amazing time, saw parts of the wall we wouldn't have found otherwise and camping on the wall was incredible. Our guide Sonia was brilliant - extremely helpful and knowledgeable, and also gave us great recommendations for our stay in Beijing. The food was also brilliant.

This hike was beyond amazing! I found Sonia online last minute (as in I emailed her at 11:30pm and we left at 10am the following morning) and she was still ready and prepared for me!! The hiking was intense, the views, amazing, and the experience once in a lifetime. To say I would recommend Sonia and this hike is an... More

Amazing experience! I chose to book a hike with Sonia from ChinaTravellers after reading great things about her tours on trip advisor. My boyfriend and I chose a group tour along an unrestored section of the wall. It was so beautiful and authentic and a great way to escape the crowds. We hiked along the wall for about 3 hours...

From start to finish, this tour was amazing and worth every step! From the ease of booking and constant contact with Sonia, the tour guide, to the actual hike and lunch that followed, the experience was one I will recommend to all my able bodied friends. While there may be other parts of the wall that are closer to Beijing... More
