Great Wall Tours
As the saying goes, "He who does not reach the Great Wall is not a true man". The Great Wall of China is one of the wonders of the world that created by people. If you without climbing the Great Wall in China, it's just like without visiting the Eiffel Tower in Paris, or going to Egyet without visiting the Pyamids! The Great Wall of China stretches 13,000 miles over mountains, forests, reservoirs, and desert. It took a millennium to build, involved multiple dynasties, and pissed off a lot of Huns. Inextricably tied to the history of the country, to visit China without seeing it would cause you to be remiss not only with your friends and family at your homecoming, but somehow within yourself as well.
When you think of visiting China, the Great Wall is one of the first things that comes to mind. When you’re talking with locals in Beijing, the question they ask every foreigner is when you are going to the Great Wall, not whether you are going at all - going there is a given. A Beijing tour without visiting the Great Wall is not perfect.
