The Great Wall Alternative This is a 2 day wild great wall trip that visitors seldom get to experience. Your own English speaking guide will transport you to a remote farm setting where you will spend the night and dine on freshly prepared food. In the morning you will awake refreshed, have breakfast, and then be guided to a remote section of the wild Great Wall that is not renovated. You will see it all as it was, untouched and left as an archeological site for the favored few. There will be no children, litter, concession areas, vendors, rest rooms, or anything else that walks with you. Where I take you will be China majesty that is untypical. Only through the services of a bi-lingual hiker, organizer and guide could such a trip be accomplished. If that’s what you want, then you do need me
