Vancouver based Laurus Travel, a China tour operator specializing in luxury small group travel, has launched its much awaited 2013 China tour programs with a new twist. Anyone travelling with the company in 2013 will be able to take part in an optional full-day hiking excursion to the Great Wall. The 10 km hike covers the entire distance between Jinshanling in Hebei Province and Simatai or Gubeikou in Beijing.
The special program is intended for casual hikers who are itchy to experience China's Great Wall in depth. It is open to anyone over 10 years of age and in good shape. Hiking experience is not mandatory. For a fit and agile person, the terrain of the hike is not that challenging except for a very short stretch.
Founded in 1998, Laurus Travel specializes in China tours. Rated A+ by the Better Business Bureau, the company is the only Canadian China tour operator recommended by Frommer's - you can find Laurus Travel in every edition of Frommer's China guidebooks.
