Great Wall of China at Badaling and Ming Tombs Day Tour from Beijing

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Depart from your Beijing hotel in a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan and admire the rural scenery as you escape bustling Beijing. Stop first at the Great Wall of China, an iconic landmark illustrating the innovation of ancient Chinese engineering. Venture to the Badaling section, one of the best-preserved parts of the structure, and listen as your guide provides an engaging narrative about the attraction’s history. 

    Climb either the north or south face of the wall to absorb panoramic vistas of the surrounding scenery. Stroll the fortification to discover the watchtowers and natural havens that pepper the UNESCO World Heritage Site. 

    After thorough exploration of the ancient wonder, head to the sacred Ming tombs to discover the burial grounds of ancient Ming emperors. Marvel at three of the excavated tombs and hear of the extravagant lives led by the mausoleum’s inhabitants. Refuel with an authentic Chinese-style lunch then browse the bespoke shops of the Longdi Jade Factory for special souvenirs. 

    Relax during the journey back to Beijing by comfortable coach and bid your guide farewell at your hotel.

    Small group (4 people) tour in a private car, access to limited/reserved area. The guide gave comprehensive historical information about each part of the visit. The day was a breeze and we had a great time. Highly recommended.
