Beijing Private Tour to Mutianyu Great Wall and 798 Art District

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
What to Expect
Your English speaking guide and private car will pick you up at 8:30am in your hotel's lobby 

First, you will visit the Great Wall at Mutianyu section, drive from city to Mutianyu need 1.5 hours. Mutianyu is popular because it is far enough away from Beijing to avoid the stifling large crowds (like at the Badaling section of the wall), and of course the views are incredible:

The Mutianyu Great Wall is known for its beautiful surroundings - dense woods and rich pastures changing colors with the seasons of the year. Built mainly from granite, the pass at Mutianyu is an appropriately unique section of the Great Wall. 7 to 8 meters high, and 4 to 5 meters high with crenellations on both sides of the Wall, the section of the Wall at Mutianyu stretches for over 2 kilometers.

Your English speaking guide will accompany you and explain all the histories and stories to you,feel free to ask any questions to your guide

Then you  will head  to  the 798 art district, on the way you will enjoy a delicious lunch in the local village 

798 Art District, also known as Dàshānzi, is Beijing's main concentration of contemporary art galleries. The industrial complex celebrates its proletarian roots in the communist heyday of the 1950s via the retouched red Maoist slogans decorating gallery walls and statues of burly, lantern-jawed workers dotting the lanes. The giant former factory workshops are ideally suited to multimedia installations and other ambitious projects.The largest, most influential art district in China – the 798 – hosts world-class international and Chinese exhibitions in the midst of former weapons factories. The number of visitors to the 798 Art District reached as high as 75 million.

After the tour finished, you will be transferred back to your hotel.
