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.

    We were fortunate to pick this tour, great and well organized day trip, especially due to our most amazing and kind guide May. She's knowledgeable, funny, helpful and in short great

    We were 9 people on a private tour. The tour operator, Mark was very helpful, efficient and nice. He had arranged a private mini van for us with a guide. We had a wonderful tour. May the tour guide was amazing: very knowledgeable, extremely nice and had perfect English. She was happy to discuss with us life in China. The tour was very flexible and we could decide how long to stay on the wall, what and when to eat and so on.

    Mr. Wu (Wu, as he liked to be called) was excellent! He texted me the day before to confirm our pick up at our hotel. He was on time and his English was good. He was very knowledgeable and gave us a picture book about the Wall to read & look at during our drive to it. He was most helpful getting our tickets and getting us into the right line to enter the wall and get on the chair lift. We paid extra for the chair lift, it was worth it. He accompanied us up the lift and and to wall. He then took several pictures of us with our Santa Claus Hats on (for our Christmas Cards), and a few Chinese as well. He waited for us when we finished at the bottom. He helped with the lunch, we skipped the dumplings and he got us some other Chinese food instead. On our return trip, with his suggestions, he stopped a couple of times to take some scenic pictures. We had lots of questions that he answered and were really pleased with our conversations that we had with him. I'd wish we could have booked some more tours with him, he does them all in Beijing. I gave him a very good tip.... His phone+86 18710122765, Email: 18710122765@163.com

    Had the best tour ever. Lillian was our guide. She was exceptionally polite and made sure that we were very comfortable with everything. She even took video and pictures of us and sent them to us so we would have memories. She went above and beyond. Thank you Lillian for a fabulous day

    Wu was punctual to pick us up in our hotel lobby. He was pleasant, insightful, engaging and took care of all of our needs. He drove safely and took care of everything for us. While he didn’t walk the wall with us (not expected) he did go up with us to take some pictures for us before waiting at the bottom for us to return. If you want a great experience visiting the wall, ask for Wu!!!!

    The driver for our small group of four was friendly in conversation. He told us about the city and some of the history of the great wall. Very skilled in driving

    Our driver, James, was very good with regards to his driving abilities. His English was minimal. Otherwise, this was strictly a good way to get to the Wall. There is no tour aspect of it. It is just a private car to take you from hotel to the wall. There was no special lines, no description of Beijing or of the rural area on the way to the wall. The dumpling lunch was good.

    While we welcomed the private tour arrangement but the tour operator did not message us who was picking us up at the hotel we were staying in. The guide did not even have a sign that could identify himself as the one picking us up either. While the other tours had & was waiting at the lobby, this guide could not be identified at all & there were a lot of people at the lobby at that time. I had to call the tour operator long distance as he didnt reply on my whatsapp message as well. The van used was kind of old but working well. Bruce our guide can speak good english & took us near the stop where the cable car starts & explained how should we walk & which tower was best & easiest to go. We were given more than enough time to enjoy the great wall. Lunch was at the place near the place, a chinese style good for the 6 of us but limited to a glass of water, soda or beer of your choice. It was airconditioned so it became comfortable for us. Bruce took good care of us.

    My husband and I were picked up punctually at our hotel byJames and when we arrived he organised all the tickets. This was the absolute highlight of our China trip. Up with the cable car, about 1.5 hrs on the wall and down with the chairlift. We had the wall to ourselves for most of the morning. As this section is primarily downhill ( or rather down stairs)it wasn’t a difficult walk. Getting in contact with Mark was easy and we were offered a range of services. Highly recommend both this company and James, our driver was excellent
