Great Wall Helicopter Tour
Can you think of a better way to see one of the greatest man-made structures of all time? Join us to see one of the world's wonders from the air.
About This Trip
On this high-flying Great Wall trip you won't be looking up at all the steps you have left to climb to reach the top. Instead you will be look down at the breathtaking view; the Great Wall of China rising and sinking with the curves of the mountains, with watch towers commanding the mountain tops as far as the eye can see. Your ride will see you soaring high above the most famous section of the wall near Badaling, where you will also catch glimpses of the reservoirs that fill the valley.Download Brochure

We just completed a tour of Shanghai, Beijing, and Xi'an arranged by WildChina. The guides, the drivers and vehicles were all first rate and the care and attention paid by staff members was beyond expectations. The itinerary planning help was great and I cannot say enough about the guides communication skills, their attention to our needs, and constant dialogue with us during our trip. WildChina made our trip memorable.

This was a superb trip. We are experienced travelers, and were extremely impressed by how well thought out this itinerary was. Jerry Dong in Beijing, Jessica Zhu in Xi'an, and Ariel Wang in Shanghai were knowledgeable, enthusiastic, flexible, and people we wanted to spend time with.
Our guide Frank Shan in Yunnan was a treasure and so kind. He immersed us in the daily life of Dali and Shaxi. We were welcomed into homes, enjoyed tea and a number of meals with local Bai villagers, and experienced village life (while staying in lovely accommodations). It was hard to say goodbye to him – he touched our hearts. Mei Zhang, the founder of WildChina, is from this part of Yunnan Province, and we felt as if we had been welcomed into her home town.
The planning, the pacing, the guides, and the thoughtfulness of this trip surpassed any we have taken. We worked with Fann Fang, one of WhildChina's travel designers. She took care of every single detail.
Cannot recommend WildChina enough - this trip in a complicated and beautiful country like China was a truly rich, meaningful and many layered experience. The best of what travel could be.

We just wanted to let you know that we really enjoyed being driven around by Mr. Lin. He was such a good driver and we were constantly amazed how well he navigated Beijing's crazy traffic!
Fred is a treasure! He is so knowledgable and flexible! He was a true lifesaver today as our granddaughter developed stomach trouble as we reached the train station and needed a toilet. He was so fast acting and used his own money to get us into the business lounge so she could get to the toilet as quickly as possible. He also went down to the track with us to make sure we got on the right train and right car and were able to get our luggage stored. We have large suitcases so was not very easy to find a place for them. He then contacted our guide in Xi'an to let him know we needed a porter to meet us at the train and help us with luggage. Everything went so smoothly.
