We were picked up on time and driven the 125k to Jinshanling. The guide didn't speak a lot of English but gave us basic instructions on where to walk and when we were expected back to meet for lunch. The walk is fairly strenuous so you need a reasonable degree of fitness. The lunch after the walk was delicious. The driver was patient and drove safely. For a cheap tour it was a good way of seeing a part of the Great Wall where fewer tourists go.
