Had a private guide take us there and then the airport spent 31/2 hours at the wall where the history was explained etc.

“Fantastic tour, highly recommended!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

We did the halfday tour to the Mutianyu section of the great wall during winter. There were no crowds whatsoever on the wall and our tour guide William He was excellent, very knowledgeable and was able to give us history not just of the wall but of Beijing and all of China! Highly recommend this tour anyone visiting China, seeing the great wall is a must!!

“Mutianyu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

if you want see the wall in 'as original condition as possible' then you have to go to Mutianyu, avoid the other recommended sections of the wall as they are crawling with tourists, and tragically then have been completely restored the look of this incredible feat of ancient human engineering

“Awe inspiring-a privilage to be there”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

Its not for the feint hearted and you need to be in reasonable shape, to navigate the walk but what a phenominal site, it was just so so amazing to see and experience this site. It was well organised and the wall and facilities were in good condition and enabled us to live the experience and the sheer grandure what we were privilaged to be a part of.
