Getting out to the Great Wall independently isn’t easy, unless you speak good Chinese. Take it easy—and at your own pace—on this private day trip. Visit Mutianyu, a scenic section of the wall that’s generally less busy than Badaling, and travel back in time as you stroll its ancient walkways.
- Visit China’s iconic Great Wall, a UNESCO World Heritage Site
- Explore the popular and well-restored Mutianyu section independently
- Enjoy private, door-to-door, round-trip transportation from Beijing
- Meet your driver at your accommodation, the train station, or the airport
What to Expect
Meet your friendly driver/guide at your hotel, apartment, the train station or even the airport, then board your climate-controlled Buick GL8 minivan on route for the Great Wall. Relax as your driver/guide secures your tickets, brings you to the wall, and provides an orientation of what to do while you’re up there. Besides hiking, you might choose to ride the cable car, chair lift, or toboggan. Bring your own snacks or ask your driver which of the many restaurants around the site they recommend. After your tour is finished, your driver will bring you back to your original departure point.
