China School Expeditions & Charity Treks
Embracing China's rich cultural heritage,
spectacular scenery, and experiencing great contrasts!
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. 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 2010 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. Just this past summer we led two groups of UK
students, aged between 19-23, on their 12-day Great Wall trek,
teaming with one of the premier school expedition services in
the world. Both groups (30 and 28 students respectively),
embarked on our 12-day Great Wall route sleeping on the wall and
in local family’s houses along the way. The feedback we got back
form the participants was tremendous. They raved about our
guides, the hiking route, and our service. The experience was so
positive that for the year of 2011 we plan on hosting about 400
UK students on their Great Wall school expedition.
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.
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,
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! If you would

"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,"
