We had an amazing time with Leo! The whole tour was perfect and one of the best of our entire trip! If you want to see the Great Wall and not just crowds of tourists this is a must-do activity!
Meet your guide in your Beijing hotel lobby at 11am and then relax in your private, climate-controlled vehicle on the 2-hour drive to the Great Wall at Gubeikou with its eerie broken tower. Make plenty of stops for photos as you hike through dramatic mountain vistas.
Enjoy a late lunch at a local restaurant, washed down with plenty of Chinese tea, and then get back in the vehicle for the journey to the Great Wall at Jinshanling. Enjoy an hour’s hike to the perfect location to watch the sun set over one of the world’s true wonders. Once night falls, your guide will drive you back to your Beijing hotel. The journey generally takes a little more than two hours.
Dodge the crowds that beset better-known stretches of the Great Wall and spare yourself a world of taxi pain with this full-day, private sunset tour to peaceful Gubeikou and Jinshanling. Hike along the less-visited Great Wall at Gubeikou, enjoy an included lunch at a local restaurant and then drive to the Great Wall at Jinshanling to watch the sunset.
