Full description
Visit 2 of the most famous attractions in China on a full-day tour of the Ming Tombs and Great Wall of China.

Following a pick-up from your hotel in Beijing between 6:30 AM and 7:00 AM, transfer to the Ming Tombs, collectively known as the “Thirteen Tombs of the Ming Dynasty.” Located approximately 26 miles (42 kilometers) north-northwest of Beijing city center, the site, on the southern slope of Tianshou Mountain, was chosen on the principles of feng shui by the Yongle Emperor (the 3rd Ming emperor).

At present, only the Sacred Way (or “Spirit Way”), Chang Ling Tomb, Zhao Ling Tomb, and Ding Ling Tomb are open to the public. See the huge stone arch at the start of the Sacred Way, along with statues of guardian animals and officials. Marvel at the largest of the tombs open to the public (Chang Ling), along with the underground palace of Ding Ling.

Next, visit a jade factory to see how the famous jade products are made. Enjoy a traditional Chinese lunch before heading to the Mutianyu section of the Great Wall of China. Take a walking tour along one of the best-preserved sections of the Great Wall, and enjoy the picturesque views of the surrounding hills and forests from the Watch Tower.

You will have about 2 hours at the Mutianyu Great Wall, ending at approximately 3:30 PM. On route back to your hotel, visit a tea shop to enjoy the Chinese traditional tea ceremony. The tour ends with drop-off at your hotel around 6:00 PM.
