We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

Nanjing Travel Guide

Location: Nanjing(南京) is in the southwest of Jiangsu Province and the downstream of Yangtze River.

History: Nanjing has been the capital of China on several occasions. According to some historical record, residents settled down in Nanjing in 5,000 years ago. The city became a prosperous administrative center after Qin Dynasty’s victory during the Warring States Period (453BC-221BC).
 

In 6 century AD, the fate of Nanjing took a sudden turn for the worse, encountering flood, fire, peasant revolt, and war one after the other. In Sui Dynasty, about 589-618AD, the city was fallen into ruins. Although it took on prosperity in Tang Dynasty, Nanjing declined gradually.
 

In 1356, Zhu Yuanzhang, the emperor of Ming Dynasty, rebuilt Nanjing as the capital of the state. The present-day city wall of Nanjing was mainly built during that time, and it is the longest surviving city wall in the world.
 

In the mid-19th century, Nanjing was served as the capital of the brief-lived Taiping Kingdom. The Xinhai Revolution led to the founding of the Republic of China in January 1912 with Dr. Sun Yat-sen as the first provisional president, and Nanjing was selected as its new capital. However, the Qing Dynasty still controlled the northern provinces, so revolutionaries asked Yuan Shikai to replace Sun as president in exchange for the emperor's abdication. Yuan demanded the capital be at Beijing. In 1927, the Kuomintang established Nanjing as the capital of the Republic of China.
