- The tour guide we had for the Great Wall trek, Peter Cheng, was fabulous.
He was very friendly, sociable and attentive nothing was too much trouble.
The tour was well thought through and organised. It all ran very smoothly.
The only negative was that some of the hotel rooms were a bit shoddy.
For example, broken air conditioning systems, grubby stained carpets with cigarette burns, bathrooms were poor and badly put together on occasion e.g. water not draining away in wet-rooms, very worn towels supplied.

Thanks for taking the time to share your feedback with us, Monica. I’m delighted that you had such a great time and that Peter made it all the more special for you. That said, it’s a shame the accommodation didn’t meet your expectations. As we trek along remote areas of the Great Wall, we use local hotels and guesthouses that are the best ones available. Although they’re not to western standards, I do feel that any shortcomings are more than made up for by the experience of small town China – and some spectacular locations close to the Great Wall. It’s also worth me mentioning that your Explore Leader is always there to help smooth out any issues you may experience during the trip.
