Full description

Escape the hustle and bustle of Beijing city center and travel in the comfort of an air-conditioned van to the northeast Mutianyu section of the Great Wall of China. Benefit from the services of a local guide and enjoy a tasty lunch before you decide whether to take the chairlift or brave the long hike of around 4,000 steps to reach the ramparts. Get stunning views of the surrounding forest from the top. Take a closer look at the restored brickwork and watchtowers that helped protect the imperial city and tombs from invasion. Enjoy 3 hours to explore at your own pace. Then, brave the single-rider toboggan ride back down to the foothills and experience this legendary attraction from a different perspective.

Emma is a fantastic guide who is very friendly and knowledgeable. It takes approximately 2 hours to get to the wall but Emma fills it with knowledge and trivia about China which I found quite enjoyable. The lunch included is great and hearty. Emma was happy to answer any questions we had. Three hours is more than enough to do quite a bit of walking at the wall. My husband and I walked from Tower 6 to 1 and all the way back past 6 to 10. Emma was awesome and I'd definitely recommend booking!

Our tour guide, Emma, is the best tour guide ever. She could have just left us however she followed us through the entire walk on the Great Wall. She is knowledgeable and diligent in sharing with us about the history. She even helped us to take nice and memorable photos! My mum had some difficulties walking however she is patient and we had a good leisure walk. At the end of the Great Wall tour, we had a choice of either taking the chairslide or toboggan. My mum could only take the chairslide and Emma accompanied her while the rest of us four took the toboggan. She was a great company for my mum during the chairslide ride. All in all, we highly recommend Emma for this tour.

I recently did the Mutianyu Great Wall Small Group Tour with Emma has my guide. She was great. We had a group of about 12 people, from around 8 different countries, and Emma did an excellent job with all of our varied personalities. Her English language skills were great and she had an obvious passion for the history of the Wall (and China in general). I'm really glad to have booked this tour and highly recommend Emma specifically.
