What to expect
Your tour starts with a pickup from your Beijing hotel.

You'll have the choice to take a cable car, chairlift, or if you’re feeling energetic—climb all the way up to the top of one of the 23 towers. Enjoy the free time you have to admire the panoramic views at the top, and take photos, before your descent. To get down, you can choose from walking, or the more fun option—taking a toboggan ride. You guide will advise which option is best, depending on season and weather conditions. After ample time exploring the wall, you’ll start your journey back to Beijing, and be dropped off at your hotel, or a convenient location in the city.

    Mutianyu Great Wall
    Stop: 2 hours - Admission included
    The Mutianyu Great Wall is an ideal site for holiday makers instead of the Great Wall hikers. You know, the Mutianyue Great Wall is the only officially opened section where you have to do the mountain hike if you are going to climb up the Great Wall since the Mutianyu Great Wall doesn't start from the ground unlike other sections of the Great Wall. So at the Mutianyu Great Wall, you have the chance to enjoy a half hour mountain climbing as well as the Great Wall hike.

Today we did the half day wall tour. Jackie came for us at our hotel, perfectly on time. The drive to the wall was great, the driver drove very safely and Jackie told us so much already. He knows all about the wall, China and has an answer to every question asked. He helped us with other things as well, such as places to go and travel schedules. Very friendly, qualified men. China is pretty overwhelming for us and we couldn't have done it without him. Thank you very much!

I would ABSOLUTELY recommend this tour to anyone. It was very much worth the cost. To be picked up at your hotel, driven 90 minutes to the tour site in a nice car, taken past all the lines at the Great Wall and have everything explained to you in English, JUST CAN'T BE BEAT. Booking this tour saved us so much time and aggravation of lines and language barriers.

Booked a Private Half day tour to Mutianyu. The booking was easy, and the trip was excellent. Jenny was my tour guide and she was truly exceptional. She was on-time, spoke fluent English and was very knowledgeable. And icing on cake- she is an excellent photographer.

Jenny arrived early(7.15AM) and waited for me. The car was very clean and the driver was very good too. We left early and were at the wall at 9.30AM. It was not crowded and no lines for either the cable car or the Toboggan.

Few tips- Make sure to come down via Toboggan. It was truly amazing experience. and ask for Jenny when making reservation- she will click the best pictures that you will cherish for life and brag about being at the Great Wall!

The Great Wall - a must see of the seven wonders of the world and truly impressive beyond all pictures and from what one has read. Definitely go as early as you can. We arrived around 9:30 am and by 11:30 you could barely move and forgot about taking any pictures that don't have peoples' heads in them. The serenity of the wall in the morning is amazing, particularly if you have a beautiful day.

The Private Tour - you get exactly what you pay for - it is just that $360 for two people is very expensive compared to what you can arrange in Beijing (for example through our hotel would have been cheaper for a nicer car). The car and tour guide were there before 8:00 am at the hotel, the car was nice, comfortable, and the driver very safe. The chairlift/toboggan roundtrip was 120Yen ($18 USD). so you are basically paying for the car, driver, and the tour guide for 5 hours.

The Tour Guide - while a very friendly lady with so-so English...during the 1.5 hour ride from Beijing she never told us anything about the Wall -- she was on her cell phone most of the time. We decided to read about the Wall on Wikipedia before we got there. On sight, her explanation was minimal and uninspiring. She was frankly overbearing and annoying when she wanted to take our pictures (I know how to use my camera, thank you). I would have preferred a more thorough and history-filled tour to explain such a masterpiece as the Great Wall. Another pet peeve -- she took us to the "State-run and approved" souvenir shop on-sight, and told us we could have engraved keychains with our names and date of our climb on them - only after purchasing them did we find out that they don't do engraving there! Grrrrrrrr

I would recommend checking other companies, or with your hotel, for better priced tours. I wish I had done better research and/or found a tour guide that came recommended.

We book two days tour. Cristy, our guide, picked us at the hotel on schedule.
She speaks very good English. The car was very good and clean. The driver was very nice and helpful.
At the first day we went to tiananmen square and then, to the Forbidden City. Cristy knew very well the history of the places, what made the tour more interesting.
On second day we went to Mutianyu Great Wall ; everything was perfect, despite the terrible traffic due the may first holidays . We had a great time !
Everything was perfect !

Our first day in Beijing and we were lucky to spend it with our guide Jenny. On the way to The Summer Palace Jenny gave us a very interesting introduction to Beijing explaining some of the sights and interesting facts including some suggestions of what to do in the evening. Lovely walk through Summer Palace at a very comfortable pace and again Jenny had lots of information to share. After a long car trip to Great Wall we stopped for a very enjoyable lunch before choosing how we were going to go to the top of The Wall. Jenny was very flexible and gave us the choice of what we wanted to do. Of course The Great Wall was amazing. Jenny's english is very good and it was very easy to chat and ask questions - especially in the long car trip. We would highly recommend this tour.

Henry took us on a two day private tour of Beijing. Our trip included the Great Wall, Tiananmen Square, the forbidden city, the summer palace and the Olympic stadium. Throughout Henry was knowledgeable, engaging and friendly. Henry’s sense of humor and fine choice of jacket really made us appreciate Beijing even in the freezing temperatures! He went above and beyond what was expected when I foolishly lost my phone on the Great Wall toboggan and helped retrieve it in tact! Henry really is a great personality and helped make our trip special! We highly recommend!

It was an amazing experience. Our guide was knowledgeable and fun. She filled us in on a lot of history we would never have known. The part of the wall we went to was not crowded and we had a great day. The ski lift up allowed us to take in gorgeous views and we took the toboggan ride down which was just fun.
