Highlights
  • An in-depth combo tour of Mutianyu Great Wall and Ming Tombs
  • Explore a quieter, less-visited stretch of wall, considered the most scenic
  • Opt for a toboggan or cable-car ride up the wall at your own expense
  • Stop for a savory local lunch and visit to an authentic jade workshop 
What to Expect
Snaking around the Chinese countryside for over 13,000 miles, the UNESCO-listed Great Wall is one of the world’s most iconic historical attractions. But many sections of the ancient stone barricade are in poor condition. During this convenient private tour from Beijing, you head to the picturesque, under-the-radar Mutianyu Wall for a first-hand peek at the most scenic stretch. Most private tours only cover the Great Wall. But after departing from Beijing in a comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle, you head first to the Ming Tombs, a set of impressive mausoleums housing the remains of ten Chinese emperors. Then, after a savory lunch at a local restaurant, learn about the history of China’s most famous mineral with a visit to a jade workshop. Settle back for scenic, countryside views as you’re brought to the quieter Mutianyu Wall, which receives fewer tourists than other sections. Wander the site at your own pace, taking time to climb the 700-year-old watchtowers. Before being comfortably dropped back to your Beijing hotel, round off the day by partaking in a traditional tea ceremony.

We did enjoy the tour overall. The communication before pickup was excellent and our tour guide did an excellent job of keeping us informed of what was to occur. The tour started at a Jade factory which I was hoping would be more informative but turned out to be very little

The tour was excellent. My only gripe would be that Tina walked way too quickly and it was hard to keep up with her with the children. Highly recommend.
