This is Joe (Qiao), who is a big fan of the Great Wall. I moved to Gubeikou Great Wall after traveling to lots of different types of the Great Wall:

1, Gubeikou Great Wall is the wild wall connected with Jinshanling Great Wall and Simatai Great Wall.

2, Our house is located in the countryside, not in DOWNTOWN Beijing.

3, If you want to experience REAL and WILD Great Wall, Gubeikou is the one what you must do.

Welcome to the Great Wall Box House, locates at the most tradtional but non-touristy Chinese village — Gubeikou, 120 km to Beijing. It\’s a 100-year-old Si-He-Yuan house in the mountain, the east-side-wall is a part of the Great Wall.

Gubeikou is like a Great Wall museum, from Bei Qi dynasty (6th Century) – Ming dynasty (14th Century). that\’s to say \’the Great Wall was not built in one day\’!

    We would be coming on June 3 or 4 with 4 people. We would book a private room and possibly 2 dorm beds. We (family of three) live in China and my cousin is coming from the States. He would like to visit a local village to see how real people in the country live. I would like to find out if you have a guide we can book for a private tour in English to take us around one day near your hostel to visit local people.
