Full description
Climb aboard a bus that departs at 7:40 AM from downtown Beijing and travel directly to the Mutianyu Great Wall, saving you time and money. On the journey, your English-speaking tour guide will give you an introduction to the history of Great Wall. Arrive at the site at around 9:30 AM, allowing you 4–5 hours of free time to climb up to the 20th Watchtower at your own pace.

Choose the option to include a round-way cable car to get to tower 14 from where you can enjoy the most beautiful views. Or select the guided hiking option if you would like a professional expert to accompany you in a small group to the cable car. In this option, your guide will explain interesting stories about the wall, and help you find the best photo spots along the route. This 40-minute guided experience will give you a deeper knowledge and appreciation for this impressive construction.

You can also choose to explore Mutianyu in a more adventurous way; hike to a secret beacon with your expert guide, which allows you to escape the crowds to an area that is only known to locals. Reach the highest beacon via this unique and exclusive route, then hike back down via the regular route. 

After hiking through the magnificent scenery, enjoy a traditional Chinese meal. The tour will then head back and arrive at Beijing around 4:30 PM.
