Know More about this tour

The driver will pick you up at your hotel at 8:00am in the morning, and head up to beautiful Mutianyu Great Wall (1.5 hour drive). This section of the Wall is fully restored, there are hand rails to help you up on the very steep parts and the views are spectacular. You will have your choice of taking a cable car (own expense) or chair lift up and spend 2-3 hours hiking on the Wall. Then you have the option of taking a toboggan ride back down or simply return the way you came.

After lunch at a local dumpling restaurant (at your own cost), continue your tour to Summer Palace (1.5 hour driving time). It was once a summer retreat for emperors, this 716-acre park is still a retreat for the tourists, who can relax here or stroll around ancient pavilions, mansions, temples, bridges and huge lake, stopping occasionally at a shop or tea-house. Much-loved summer retreat of the Imperial families, the lovely landscaped gardens, halls, pavilions and corridors are set around the Kunming lake as well as the rivers in natural harmony.

You will be driving back to your Beijing hotel after the Summer Palace visit.

  • Unimpressed, traffic was heavy but there was no need for the driver to get agitated and get out of his car shouting in Chinese. Put us on edge for the rest of the trip. When we got to the wall we were told it was 40RMB each to get the bus or the same price for him to park the car. That was not mentioned in the info pack but we paid it anyway. We did have free time at the wall and that was fine. When we returned to meet the driver he did acknowledge us, but was playing cards. So I suggested we got a beer and waited until his hand finished. I didn't want to upset him. On exiting the parking area he had our 80RMB ready to pay the car park charges but was waived through without paying, we did not get our money back. On returning to Beijing I was very surprised to see our hotel and he just dropped us there. After previously seeing what he was like in traffic I did not feel able to approach him and request to be taken to the summer palace as per our itinerary. Very disappointed as we only had 2 days in Beijing. It is possible this is not the sort of tour you might get and we were unlucky. Oh and he did not speak a single word other than to organise our tickets.

  • Our Driver Kevin was great! He was very informative and gave us good tips about Beijing etc. Our driver was very flexible with the itinerary for the day. He made time to stop at the bird's nest for us on our way back to the city. really recommended!!
