This was my 3rd visit to the Great Wall (went to Badaling and this section more than 12 years ago) and it is still as amazing as ever. We left Beijing city at 7am, arriving Mutianyu around 8.45am. Definitely recommend the early start as we had the first few sections of the wall all to ourselves - had photographs of... More

After all the stories of the crowds on the wall we were very surprised how quiet it was. We arrived at around noontime and did not have to wait for the shuttle bus or the cable car. Walked for an hour and a half on the wall, a great experience. Requires reasonable fitness but nothing too strenuous. Highly recommmend

Iconic, brilliant, exciting, magnificent - pick your own highly positive adjective. This is one of those sites where 5 stars just aren't enough. Everybody has seen pictures of it and all that needs to be said is that being there is much, much better. Get up early to have the Wall virtually to yourself and to beat the mid-day heat,... More

A wonderful place to visit when you are in Beijing, 2h from the center of Beijing, you can easily spend 3 hours there, enjoy the teleferic to go up, and then go down with the Toboggan, the place not to miss when you are in Beijing.

To be honest not sure if this is where we were but did climb half way to the 'top'. Group tour. Fantastic views from there. Don't go on a weekend anywhere for attractions. It was great to see the expanse of at least part of this world wonder!

We really loved our Great Wall visit. We deliberately chose a tour that left Beijing at 7 am . We were able to enjoy our time there with no crowds.

While the trip was well organized and very educational, one of the highlights was the delightful personality of our tour guide ----Lucy. She was enthusiastic, very knowledgeable and highly organized. She took the trip from 4-star to 5-star!

All in all a good value tour, and in a small group, there were only five of us. We arrived at the wall... More
