Who We Are

Great Wall Adventure Club has specialized in Great Wall trekking and camping for the past two decades, with a particular emphasis on handling large groups and parties. We have vast amounts of experience in this, as we lead and guide Great Wall treks on almost every day of the year.

Different from others, the Great Wall Adventure Club travel services are handled by our American and Chinese travel specialists together. We have offices in the U.S. and China. This way you get a personalized and expert touch when it comes to your travel arrangements, and we guarantee that no stone will be unturned. With our standard of excellence and service we proudly welcome you to China! 

Our commitment to quality and service has paid off, as our trips have been recommend by such esteemed sources such as the Wall Street Journal and most recently in Fodor’s China guide. The Beijing Olympics of 2008 was our time to shine, as we lead many Olympic groups upon their Great Wall trips. Some of the teams we lead were the USA Softball Team and the UK Men’s Rowing team, along with other Olympic teams from Russia, Singapore, Australia, and New Zealand. During their coverage NBC even broadcasted one of our Great Wall hikes. As the official partner of the Great Wall Administration Offices in Jinshanling, Gubeikou and Jiankou, we also been proud to lead numerous illustrious groups on their own Great Wall trek. Google, IBM, and the Embassy of the United States of America are just some of the parties we have been fortunate enough to serve. 

Every summer we lead more than a dozen groups of the students from the U.K, USA, Canada, and Europe on their 7 to 12-day Great Wall trek, teaming with several premier school expedition services in the world. The groups (10 to 28 students each respectively), embarked on our Great Wall route sleeping on the wall and in local family’s houses along the way. The feedback we got back from the participants was tremendous. They raved about our guides, the hiking route, and our service. The experience was so positive and encouraging.  

Excellent Value for School Expedition Organizations

We pride ourselves on being the most knowledgeable and dependent of all China travel groups, as our field guides go through rigorous training and preparation, much more so than any other organization. Our team has an impeccable safety record, ensuring your expedition is a safe and secure one. For planning and leading your Great Wall expedition we are your one-stop place for all your needs. You don’t have to look around for a bunch of different organizations that meet your needs. We can take care of all your logistical and planning requirements during your time in China, from your accommodation to your trek supplies. As you yourself are a provider of school expeditions that are largely financed through hard work and fundraising, you know what it means to make the most of your resources, and we do too. Last but not least, our prices are extremely competitive, as you won’t find a better price for large group Great Wall travel with western standards.

Great Educational Opportunities

In addition to the experiences you can gain from our informative Great Wall hikes, we also offer other valuable educational opportunities. We are well connected with various educational and cultural organizations in Beijing, allowing us to develop for you tailor-made study-abroad and summer camps on all aspects of China’s rich cultural heritage. These can range from traditional Chinese martial arts, medicine, performance arts, and cooking.

For Individual Students and Parents

You’re probably thinking to yourself, why should I sign up for a school expedition? Well, if you want to explore the world, meet new people, create friendships that will last a lifetime, while also gaining skills that will help you into adulthood, than a school expedition is the perfect opportunity to do just that. Major companies and employers in the USA and UK state that embarking on a school expedition as one of the most important accomplishments you can achieve while at school, making for perfect resume detail. Parents will also feel results as well. In addition to having the child out of the house for a bit, you’ll see your son/daughter returned both confident and ready to succeed in their further studies and pursuits. If you feel that a school expedition is right for you and your school, meet with a trusted teacher or professor, and ask him/her to get in contact with our partner expedition agents. See you on the wall!

Other Large Groups

Other large groups and parties are still welcome to hike with us on the Great Wall. In addition to school expeditions, we also cater to organizing special Great Wall events for company outings, non-profit organizations, and other large groups with special needs. For that extra special touch we can even organize banquets and feasts atop the Great Wall itself!

"This has probably been one of the toughest challenges I have undertaken. I want to thank you for your patience, motivation, and reassurances throughout the trek. I probably would not have made it without the best tour guides I could ever have asked for (Danny and Joe). This was nevertheless an amazing experience! Thanks for keeping us safe and comfortable.


PS: Your English is impeccable. Thanks,"
