Group - Mutianyu Great Wall one-day tour
From USD 28.57
Overview
Unless you speak Chinese, the Great Wall of China is tough to reach by public transport. Take it easy by joining this convenient group tour to the Great Wall at Mutianyu, a scenic stretch of wall that’s less crowded than the Great Wall at Badaling, complete with Chinese lunch. Should you wish to ride the cable car or take the toboggan down, your guide can help arrange tickets (own expense).

Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Beijing Downtown Travel Service Co., Ltd., Beijing

Meet the guide at exit C of Zhang Zi Zhong Lu Subway station (just out of the station beside the road). The tour bus and tour guide may be a few minutes late because of the local traffic, which is normal. Please make sure to be there no later than 07:15 a.m. and wait patiently as the tour bus is not allowed to park for long. All the guests are expected to get on the bus immediately once the bus arrives and leaves soon after that.

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Mutianyu Great Wall, Beijing

On the way to Mutianyu Great Wall. It takes around 2 hours to get to Mutianyu Great Wall from the city. The tour guide will give you some information in detail about the history and the Great Wall.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Mutianyu Great Wall, Beijing

Arrive at Mutianyu Great Wall. The tour guide will arrange the tickets for you and send you in. You'll have some hours as free time to be on the Wall. You are expected to meet the tour guide again at the designated point (the same place where you enter). If you would like to take the cable car or toboggan to get on or down from the Great Wall, please ask the tour guide to help you with the tickets.

Lunch. Lunch is arranged just nearby the entrance of Mutianyu Great Wall. The lunch is served in a Chinese way: all the people sitting around a round table and share all the dishes on the table. The dishes are for all the people at present, NOT one plate for one person. The main food is plain rice. Beverage and drinks are not included in the lunch.

Duration: 1 hour

Great visit to the great wall!

Tour starts early so you are at the wall without many other people. Jen was a perfect guide and let us know all the best spots on the wall, but also in the city centre. We really enjoyed it!
