Mutianyu Great Wall one-day group tour NO SHOPPING
From $28.57
Much more tranquil and less crowded than Badaling Great Wall, Mutianyu is both magnificent and tranquil. Soak in the scenery and history of the Great Wall of China at Mutianyu during a day's fun trip with a professional guide. Get away from the crowds when you enjoy the tranquility at Mutianyu Great Wall, taking the cable car or not (optional). Observe the natural beauty of the landscape and the architectural marvels of the 13th century's Great Wall during your trip, which takes approximately three hours to complete, including round-trip transportation from Beijing, Chinese lunch, guide and entrance fees. 
The Mutianyu Great Wall is relatively untouched - it is less commercialized, sees fewer tourists and has undergone less restoration work. Standing on top of the wall allows for a panoramic view of the surrounding countryside , which is planted with fruit and chestnut orchards, and dotted with old pine.
What to Expect
Unlike other sections of the wall that are crowded by tourists and vendors (especially Badaling Great Wall), this section of the Great Wall is rather tranquil, and the stones are hundreds of years old. The views are some of the most breathtaking ones that you'll see all around China.
Meet the tour guide  at 07:15 a.m. at Exit C of Subway Station Zhang Zi Zhong Lu on Line 5, and head up to the entrance of Mutianyu Great Wall. It takes an average of 2 hours to get there on the bus, and 3 hours on the Great Wall. Cable car or toboggan is accessible, but not included in this tour. 
You'll enjoy your free time on the Great Wall. Walk on your own pace and take your time to take photos and enjoy the atmosphere.  As the most popular fun trip of Great Wall around Beijing, it will show you both Mutianyu Great Wall and part of the wild un-restored part at Jiankou Great Wall if you explore more.
You can also take the cable car to go directly from the entrance to the 14th tower and get down the same way, just be noted that the cable car ticket is not included in this tour. It is the best place for keen photographers along the wall. The hiking is moderate because you need to return to where you start to meet again the tour guide, which allows you to walk as much as you can.
This section offers arguably the finest hiking anywhere on the Great Wall. It is extremely photogenic, with over 15 watch-towers, and steep gradients that give constantly changing perspectives and wide, open views. There is fascinating variety in the watch-towers. This section of the wall is partly wild, ruined, preserved and original. On a clear day, it is difficult to fail to take good photographs here.
You'll meet the tour guide again at the entrance and have a lavish Chinese lunch in a special restaurant. Dishes are served on a round rolling table and all the guests sit around it, sharing all the food. The tour finishes after the lunch.
Furthermore, you will NOT be taken into any jade factory or souvenir store to shop. This is completely a NO-SHOPPING tour.

Great visit to the great wall!

Tour starts early so you are at the wall without many other people. Jen was a perfect guide and let us know all the best spots on the wall, but also in the city centre. We really enjoyed it!

Viking on the wall

We got plenty of time to explore the wall. A little too much even. The tour guide was super friendly! If you’re visiting the wall, this surely is the best way!!!
