“Had the Great Wall to myself for a few hours in the early morning before all the big bus tours arrived in. This is the tour to pick! Local lunch was also great! Loved the fact that I tobogganed down the Great Wall of China! ...Cara B., USA – See more reviews
What To Expect
Discover the Great Wall of China, one of the Seven Wonders of the World, and a must-see during any visit to Beijing. Hike along a restored section of the wall and climb up into the watchtowers as you soak up in the spectacular views of the surrounding countryside. With a traditional lunch at a nearby village, this is the ultimate Great Wall experience.
No visit to Beijing is complete without walking along the snaking Great Wall of China. Beat the early morning traffic with an early pickup and head outside the city.
Have an awesome, authentic small group experience. Visit no shops or factories along the way - it's all Great Wall all the time (except for a delicious local lunch). This tour is hassle-free, so your experience is not only memorable, but totally authentic as well.
Arrive at Mutianyu before the crowds, a mostly restored but still spectacular section of the wall, and grab a moment to take in this incredible view. It's a short hike up onto the wall but the climb is worth it as you'll be rewarded with amazing views of the wall stretching through the surrounding countryside or have the choice to take the cable car up (at your own expense) to the Wall if you wish to avoid the climb, giving you the flexibility that you can enjoy at your own pace.
Learn about some of the wall's myths and legends from your local guide as you trek to the watchtowers, which offers even more spectacular views. Although there are a lot of steep steps in the place, tackle it at your own pace. Afterwards, you may want to walk back or, for a different perspective, take the cable car or toboggan back down (at your own expense).
After working up an appetite, head to a nearby village for a tasty local lunch and try some Chinese specialties. Then, with full tummies, start making the journey back to Beijing.
