Time to spare between flights at Beijing airport? If so, use the time for a private 8-hour layover tour to the Mutianyu section of China’s Great Wall. Travel direct to this scenic, restored stretch of the UNESCO-protected wall, one of the least crowded segments. Then, ride a cable car to walk along the ramparts, admiring the watchtowers and mountain views. Upgrade to include a guided tour plus a Chinese lunch before a return airport transfer.
What to Expect
Book your required option, and on arrival at Beijing airport, hop inside your private, air-conditioned vehicle. Then, make the approximate 1.5-hour journey to the Mutianyu section of China’s UNESCO-listed Great Wall. Your tour duration will be timed to get you back to the airport two hours before your onward flight departure.

Less crowded than the Badaling segment of the wall, the restored Mutianyu stretch dates to the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), and is considered one of the most scenic and less crowded sections. Snaking along mountain ridges and notable for its densely spaced watch towers, it boasts crenelated parapets on both sides — a rarity on other parts of the wall.

On arrival, choose a round-trip cable car up to and down from the ramparts, or a cable car ride up and descent by toboggan — riding a toboggan-style cart down the hillside (All-inclusive package).

Then, take a guided or independent walk along the battlements (depending on option selected). Stride along the ramparts, admiring the watchtowers and stunning mountain views.

Finally, continue to a local restaurant for a Chinese lunch (depending on option selected) and journey back to the airport, where your tour finishes with a drop-off.
