We took the electric cart ride on the wall as we were pressed for time and had a tummy bug issue otherwise Would loves to have hired bikes to go around . Really worth doing as you can see so much of the city ....More
We had a short visit to Xian and loved what we saw. The wall is amazing and kept in wonderful condition. We arrived at night and the whole city seemed to be lit up..loved it. The next day we had a walk through the park...More
We biked the whole wall one afternoon around 2:30. The bikes are kind of beat up but get the job done. The afternoon can get very hot with no shade in August. If you are not in biking shape i would suggest taking the golf...More
Extremely beautiful- especially at night. We found it to be cooler at night. Got to see the sun set and the lights turn on. We went to the south Entrance. There is also a small boat ride under that looked really cool, but we didn't...More

Yes, you can rent helmets when you rent your bike. You need a cash deposit to rent the helmets and bikes. I didn’t rent a helmet and it was ok. The wall can get busy with all the bikes but it is a fairly smooth ride.
Once you leave you cannot renter. It’s very inexpensive to get in around 8 US dollars. I would recommend renting the bikes it’s a lot of fun and you can ride at your own pace. Stopping and viewing the city it’s beautiful.
