See one of mankind's greatest feats of engineering up-close on a full-day picnic tour on the off-the-beaten track section of Mutianyu Great Wall of China.

Representing the embodiment of an ancient civilization, and the harbinger of China as a giant of world culture, the Great Wall was erected to defend the northern borders of the Chinese Empire. At its peak, it was guarded by more than 1 million men and wound its way across deserts, grasslands, mountains and plateaus for a staggering 5,500 miles (8,850 kilometers).

The well-preserved Mutianyu section is an 1 1/2-hour drive from Beijing. On arrival you will follow in history's footsteps on an engaging hike suited to varying abilities.

Onwards your hike winds as it follows the Great Wall, each view more impressive than the last. The guide will fairly reward you for your efforts with a stop to savor chilled sparkling wine and tasty local delicacies while enjoying sensational views from a lofty, secluded watchtower. Appetite whetted by wine and appetizers, down below in the village a lunch of regional specialties awaits you, including - if you would like - the famous locally raised fish, prepared barbecue style.

Glean historical insights from your guide, who will describe other functions of the Great Wall during the Ming Dynasty, including its border controls and regulated transport of people and goods along the Silk Road. After your tour and lunch at Mutianyu, your guide will transport you back to your Beijing hotel.

As an alternative, ask your guide to drop you off at the Art District 798, a labyrinth of warehouses comprising art galleries and studios, boutiques, museums, bars and caf├ęs. Here, you'll find cutting-edge, contemporary Chinese art along with quirky clothes shops and bookshops to add to the mix. You can enjoy a drink or have dinner at a local restaurant before making your own way back to Beijing.
