Beijing Small-Group Tour: Mutianyu Great Wall With Lunch Inclusive

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    Book your preferred tour option, and after pickup from your central Beijing hotel, hop inside an air-conditioned minivan with your guide and small group of no more than 12.

    During the journey to Mutianyu, listen as your guide shares intriguing background about Beijing and this famous, restored section of the Great Wall. Originally constructed in the 6th century and rebuilt in the 15th century, the section centers on a 1.5-mile (2.5-kilometer) stretch that was fully restored in 1986 — creating a perfect replica of the 15th-century Ming-era fortifications. Learn how this segment is famous for its densely spaced, original-style watchtowers that stand along a mountain ridge about 328 feet (100 meters) apart.

    On arrival, view a map with your guide to familiarize yourself with the different routes and options for exploring. Then, make the round-trip journey to and back down from the ramparts using your pre-booked cable car tickets (depending on option selected). Or, leave your options open and purchase (additional cost) return cable car tickets or chairlift (for your ascent) and toboggan run (for descent) tickets from the ticket office on the day.

    At the top, enjoy free time to explore independently. Stretch your legs along the ramparts, passing through the watchtowers and inspecting the crenelated parapets—unusual for flanking both sides of the wall. On route, absorb the stunning views of the mountains, and the wall snaking along their ridges.

    When it’s time, reconvene with your guide and enjoy lunch at a local restaurant, savoring dishes like onion pancakes, and sweet and sour chicken with egg or soy sauce fried rice.

    Afterward, return to Beijing, making photo stops at the Bird’s Nest Stadium and Water Cube, two of Beijing’s legendary 2008 Olympic venues. Your trip then ends with a drop-off at your central hotel.

    My friend and I booked this tour as it seemed the best "bang for the buck" as we would see the Great Wall at a less touristy spot and then also see the Summer Palace. Our tour guide, Jin, was phenomenal. She answered all of...More
