    This was our first tour experience with EXPLORE. I found it to be a wonderful organisation to travel with; I;m sorry I didn't happen upon you earlier in my travels. I enjoyed the activity/climbing involved. I can't imagine experiencing the Great Wall... Show more

    I think you need to include more information about the walking element of this tour. It probably just scrapes in as a moderate tour but there needs to be some emphasis placed on the amount of climbing and descending, there are not really any level... Show more
