The Great Wall Tour is at the top of the list for an adventure experience! It’s considered to be one of the toughest courses, yet the most picturesque. Staged in China’s Tianjin Province, it includes more than six (6) kilometers on the Great Wall and more than 5,100 steps. These range in height from several inches to almost knee-high. Along the course you will pass through beautiful farmland and tiny, picturesque villages. Don’t let the challenging course intimate you though! This tour offers a distance for everyone.

The race was fabulous, but sharing it with the people I met on the trip -- including the MT folks -- made it so much more memorable. It was this incredible group vibe of excitement and anxiety. I had so much admiration for everyone I met, who, like me, wanted to take on this challenge and visit this far away place. I never thought I'd say this, but I loved being part of a tour that involved riding on buses with new friends. It was like camp for grown-ups, and I didn't want it to end.
The whole trip was amazing! We were discussing that it would have been great to have another night in Xi'an, but then we would have to give up something else. It was a very packed itinerary, but I wouldn't have it any other way. The Tibet extension was great and I would definitely recommend it to others. The Marathon Tours staff was great as always. This was my second trip with Scott and my fourth with Jacqui. They made me feel right at home and like a member of the family. On every trip I've taken, I've met great people and we still keep in touch (on social media and in person).
