Know More about this tour

Meet your English speaking driver at your centrally located hotel in Beijing hotel, and travel by private, climate-controlled vehicle to the Mutianyu section of Chinas UNESCO listed Great Wall - depending on traffic about a 1.5 hours drive out of the city

During your journey, hear tales about this restored section of the wall, one of the most scenic and least crowded. The Mutianyu section of the wall snakes across forested hills and is noted for its densely spaced Watch Towers.

On arrival, gaze up at the incredible hilltop battlements. Then, with your pre-booked ticket, enjoy fast-track access traveling directly to the entrance gate, and in so doing avoiding the crowds and shuttle bus transfer.


While you can climb the ramparts by foot it is highly recommended that you save time and energy and take one of the quick access routes available. The cable car alights at the northern entrance, Watch Tower #14, the chair lift alights at the southern entrance, Watch Tower #6.  Should you decide to ascend or descend by foot, please note that the path is quite steep and typically takes about an hour.  Tickets for a return trip to and from the ramparts (cable car or chair lift return or the combination route, chair lift up / toboggan descent) or a single ascent or descent are at your own expense.


Once on the ramparts youll have plenty of time to explore about 2 hours. Thats plenty of time to stride along the granite ramparts, view the Watch Towers, drink in the spectacular mountain views and enjoy many photographic vantage points.


The Great Wall dates back to the Northern Qi Dynasty (550-557). Then again it was rebuilt in the Ming Dynasty (1368 -1644) to provide a protective defence barrier to guard the capital and imperial mausoleums from invaders.


You can see 23 Watch Towers distributed along its more than 2 kilometers (1.2 miles) length. This stretch of the UNESCO listed Great Wall is known for its beautiful surroundings, including dense forests and rich pastures. Its also recommended as being the most family friendly section, as its a section thats easier for those with young children to navigate.

After your descent youll be directed to a local Chinese dumpling restaurant for lunch. There you can savor different varieties of these wonderful dough parcels. Alternative Chinese dishes or a western style meal can be arranged should that be your preference. Your driver will be happy to recommend alternative suggestions should that be the case. Please note all drinks are at your own expense.

Finally, relax in the comfort of your air conditioned vehicle as you are driven back to your hotel in Beijing, where your adventure of hiking the Great Wall comes to a close.

  • Great job guys. I felt very well taken care of. Marvin was great!!! Thanks for all three days of tours Mark Ma!. Highly reccomend for all Beijing tours.

  • Marvin did an exellent job behind the weel and as our facilitator! Safe, comfortable driving - not everybody does that! Clean and New car. The lunch where faboulus - with food enough for a hole week. And not only dumplings! All together a perfect day!!

  • What an amazing trip! Marvin gave us the experience of a lifetime. Not only did he drive us there, we listened to music, laughed and danced. It definitely made the time go by faster. Once there, he took our pictures and allowed us to roam around on our own and explore. Once done, we went to a well known Chinese restaurant. We had more food than we could ever imagine(not just dumplings). The food was delicious and Marvin was great company as well. Would highly recommend this trip!

  • We had a brilliant trip with Marvin to the Great Wall! So easy with a pick up from the hotel and Marvin even came up the wall to take photos for us. Lunch was one of the best in China - it was far more than dumplings, at an award winning restaurant we could never have found!

  • A totally amazing day! Thank you Sun for being our wonderful driver. Sun picked us up on time and we appreciated stopping for drinks prior to getting to the Great Wall. You guided us to exactly where we needed to go and what we needed to do. This trip was amazing....take the gondola up and definitely take the toboggan down....loads of fun! Once up on the wall no tour guide is simply want to take your time walking the wall we had a couple of hours to explore....wear hiking boots!, looking at the scenery, taking the history in. Sun then took us out of the tourist area to a local restaurant for a delicious lunch. Sun was delightful and charming, and a wonderful driver. Thank you for the most wonderful day!

  • Excellent tour with guide Susan. She arrived at the Beijing hotel early, and we started off for the 1:15 drive to the wall about 8:30. She took care of all the tickets. We chose to take the optional chair lift up to the wallwalking up there in 99 degree heat would not be wise. which cost about 16 or so round trip. The wall itself is pretty rugged and steep in places, hardly a flat spot on it. Magnificent views and picture opportunities. Susan took some excellent pictures and she was super nice. We walked around the top of the wall for a couple of hours then decided to go back. On the way down you can either take the chair lift, or do this toboggan-luge style thing that slowly slides down a track back to the parking area. We took the toboggan and it was a huge amount of fun, not dangerous at all. We stopped for some beers at the bottom, then took off for lunch. We stopped for lunch in this town about halfway back to Beijing and not a single person spoke English besides us and Susan. Obviously a very authentic Chinese meal. The food was fabulous, and way more than we could eat. After that it was back to the hotel. Susan was a great tour guide, spoke great English, had good knowledge of the history of the wall, and stories to tell about it. Excellent day - thanks for having this trip available!

  • Martin was an excellent driver and managed the whole day perfectly, the lunch was fantastic and exceeded expectations, especially the portion sizes. The waitress at the restaurant was also very courteous and paid special attention to what was wanted.

    Overall the trip was very well managed with a luxury level car to travel in.

    The wall was much less crowded due to the early arrival and this was a benefit also in terms of avoiding the higher mid-day temperatures. Overall, I rate this trip 5 stars.

  • Martin was so polite and helpful. He ordered tons of dishes from the best restaurant near Mantiyu. The ride, food, and guide is all very worth it.

  • We were completely happy with our tour experience. Our guide, Bruce, met us in our hotel lobby, spoke excellent English, and drove us to and from The Great Wall in a clean, comfortable Camry. Bruce was well-educated and friendly. We especially enjoyed his personal attention and the meal with him.

  • An amazing experience! We got to hike a lot of the great wall with no one around, as our expert tour guide got us there early before the crowds!! Lunch was amazing and driving was impeccable! Would definitely recommend!!
