Why not devoting just a bit more time and go on a real adventure?

The Little Steps team has selected the top 3 tour operators that have been taking travelers on overnight camping trips to the Great Wall of China for years!
Maybe camping on the Great Wall of China wasn’t on your bucket list because you didn’t know it was possible! The amazing news is, some companies are legally allowed to take on travelers on real camping trips and spend the night in some of the watch-over towers. The folks from the Great Wall Adventure Club have been doing this since 2003! Their stellar trips and service have earned them features on CNN Travel, The Wall Street Journal, and even the New York Times. Check out and join their camping tours here!
