The tour guide book I had purchased said to take the cable car up, hike to the East an hour and a half and then take the cable car or toboggan down. What they don't tell you is that there are two cable cars. If you purchase the cable car/toboggan combo ticket at the bottom, it's not the main cable... More

A friend and I visited, we hired a private car from Beijing which cost less than $100 for 8 hours, a great deal for easy transport. We were able to arrive early before the crowds and have a peaceful walk along the wall. The wall was well preserved and the views spectacular! Would definitely recommend to others, but go early!

It is further to go to Mutianyu to see the Great Wall from Beijing by about 30 minutes each way. But we got there at 9 and it was not crowded at all. We took a cable car up and down. There is another cable car option that you can take a toboggan back down. It is an amazing feat... More

After much research, we opted for a half day tour with China Highlights for 3 reasons: the excellent tour reviews, the more leisurely late-morning pick up time & the small maximum group size. We had a fantastic day (3 friends plus a solo traveler, guide and driver). Going on a weekday and arriving around lunch time proved to be good... More

A good place to visit but if you take local buss remember they tell lies to get you back on bus. Would recommend using railway to visit it is much more comfortable and you can relax. The railway also takes you to the cable car and it costs less than bus.

A steep walk, but exciting to know the history of the country. a must see place. The scenic views were simply awesome and it was challenging to walk all the way to the top.

After 6 days travelling between Shanghai and Beijing, finally getting into the country-side was a blessing! We were fortunate enough to be driven in a private car who found our hotel off the beaten track, in the village of Mutianyu. A great experience all round due to it's local proximity to the Cable Car ride up the mountain, which is... More
