Full description
After being picked up from Beijing, arrive at Mutianyu Great Wall at around 9:30 AM and take advantage of your skip-the-line access ticket. Mutianyu Great Wall is the best-renovated section of the Great Wall where the original look has been well maintained. Your English-speaking tour guide will introduce you the history of the Great Wall on the bus before arrival at the site, allowing you to use your time to marvel at the incredible views and explore at your own pace.

Instead of hiking, choose the round-way cable car option to get to tower 14 in the middle of the great wall. Then, take a short walk to the most beautiful section of the wall. At this point, you will have the opportunity to take unforgettable photos wearing traditional Chinese costumes with the amazing Great Wall as the background. This photo service is free but please advise the tour operator in advance if you would like to do this.

After 4 hours of hiking amidst the magnificent views, enjoy a traditional Chinese meal comprised of 8 dishes and 1 soup. The tour will then return to Beijing, arriving at around 4 PM.

Great and efficient tour. Everything very well organized and according to what they offer. If you don’t have much time to visit the wall and walk through it, this is probably the best and more efficient idea. You will get away from the people up there and avoid lines at the entrance. Lunch, pick up and drop off is perfect to go and come back to the city, you won’t have to worry about anything else during this half day trip. Perfect for those how can’t communicate in chinese.

Our tour guide was Judy, who did a great job! On the outward journey, she explained many historical details. On the way it started to snow (on December 24th!), So we had the unique pleasure of climbing the wall in the snow. The whole excursion was very well organized, the final lunch was delicious.

I was contacted the night before via whatsapp by our tour guide, Judy. Driver was on time at 6AM. We took a van and picked up other guests at their respective hotels and then moved to a big bus. I chose this tour because the itinerary goes straight to the Great Wall (no jade shop and others), gives you a few hours to go around on your own -to explore and take photos and then meet at the restaurant for lunch. We got there early and there werent many people. Big bonus for taking photos! Our tour guide Judy was very helpful. She helped me by paying for my toddlers snack because my internet was slow that time, so i couldnt use my Alipay. She even rode a cab w me all the way back to my hotel after the tour. Awesome service! I was really thankful because i had a toddler in tow. Thanks so much also to our driver 8213 for being early! I will definitely recommend them and this company to my family and friends. Super fast, easy, convenient!
