    Mutianyu Great Wall
    Stop: 2 minutes - Admission included
    The Mutianyu Great Wall is considered the most beautiful section in Beijng. Located in Huairou County 72km northeast of Beijing, it stands opposite of Badaling Great Wall, connected with Juyongguan Pass in the west and Gubeikou Gateway in the east. The whole area is like a garden on a mountain top. There are abundant natural springs which feed a great variety of plants and fruit trees, keeping the air fresh all year long. The scenic beauty is excellent especially in spring and autumn.

Best Tour!! Ask for Joyce
My wife and I had a layover in Beijing so we decided to go to the Great Wall during that time.

One of our friends had used this company before and recommended them to us and we were so lucky to have used them!

Amazing service, better experience, and the best tour guide (Joyce)! She knows her stuff in and out and is so fun to speak too! She has quite a bit of knowledge not just on the Great Wall but China in general and had very good delightful conversations with her. If you take this tour, I highly recommend asking for her as she is truly passionate about her job and ensures you have Amazing experience! Thank you again Joyce, we love the picture you took of us!

Simply amazing. Great Wall of China is definitely a must visit place. And much better when you do with the right guide/person. Jenny was really amazing. Very knowledgeable about the history and the places to go. We were able to skip the crowds and had a really great time! Thanks Jenny!

Great Wall Tour
Was picked up at the hotel lobby and then taken to our car, which had a selection of refreshments for the journey. On the way, facts about Beijing and The Great Wall were spoken about and discussions exchanged regarding Chinese and British lifestyles. Once at the venue, we took the cable car up to the wall and proceeded with our journey through watch towers, steep steps and fascinating views. I decided to toboggan down the mountain along with Jenny, (our tour guide) who also spoke about more facts about the wall towards tower 6. We stopped off for a delicious lunch and then made a detour to Tiananmen Sq on the way back where again, many facts and figures were mentioned. I fully recommend Jenny, as not only does she speak great English but, is a friendly fun person.

Excellent day with Jenny
We took this tour yesterday and it was absolutely fantastic. Jenny was not only knowledgable about Beijing and the Great Wall but also gave us a great insight in to Chinese culture and day to day life. We were picked up at our hotel, offered a range of soft drinks or beer in the car and driven to the Wall. On the way back we had a fantastic lunch in an authentic local restaurant and diverted via Tiananmen Square on the way back to the hotel.

All in all, best possible experience had, would not hesitate to recommend Jenny.

Everything we expected & more
Oct 2019
We thoroughly enjoyed this tour which was just long enough, but not too long to ingest all the knowledge that Connie shared during the tour.

Lena’s detailed knowledge of the Great Wall, especially of all the successful & attempted invasions from foreign adversaries was fascinating.

Much like another walking tour we did the pace & timing was just right given the high season as we were able to see everything without it being too crowded and the way you managed our itinerary meant we really didn’t have to wait anywhere for any real period of time. Just be prepared to get up and out pretty sharply in the morning and wear suitable walking shoes / trainers as they will be needed.

Along with Lena’s excellent command of English we would highly recommend her and the tour company to anyone that is interested on this kind of tour.

Being lucky with the weather didn’t do any harm as the early morning sunshine and fewer crowds made this an overall breath-taking experience.

PS to Lena – we are just sorry you got stuck behind a slow driver on the toboggan ride as we had a great time going doing so fast!!! The toboggan is a must for any inner child in you ;-).

Excellent experience
Aug 2019
Our tour guide Lena was great. She was punctual and friendly. Lena explained the history of the Great Wall and told about Chinese culture. She took us for a traditional Chinese lunch.

The Mutianyu section was a good choice because it was less-crowded. The toboggan ride is highly recommended. We really enjoyed our tour to the Mutianyu Great Wall.

We highly recommend Catherine Lu tours!

Best way to see the Wall
Our guide, Lena, was excellent. Called us the day before to confirm details, met us at our hotel with our driver. Two hour ride to the Great Wall. Definitely recommend the Mutianyu section. We visited on a Monday and it was very quiet. No queuing for the chairlift up or toboggan run down. Once on the Wall the views are breathtaking and the engineering feat stunning. Be prepared for steep climbs/descents as you explore. Fun lunch on the return journey.

Tracy was our tour guide, she was very friendly and helpful. The experience was great, the van that took us to the Great Wall was very clean, ac and waters. The ride to the Great Wall was around 1:30 hrs but with Tracy the time went by really fast :) she likes to chat and share some interesting facts about the area. Once we were at the Great Wall, she guided us and shared some history about the Wall, she took many many pictures of us. Highly recommend this tour and I will suggest asking for Tracy to be your guide :)

Tracey was a great guide!
Tracey was a great tour guide for us. She spoke fluent English and was very friendly and outgoing. Tracey helped get us there early to avoid the crowds and took many photographs for us. She explained the history of the wall and later took us for an authentic Chinese lunch. I would be glad to use this service and have Tracey as a tour guide again.
