What You Can Expect
You'll travel by air-conditioned minivan to the less-touristy Mutianyu section of the Great Wall of China, located 56 miles (90 kilometers) from Beijing. This section of the Great Wall offers unparalleled views from the Ming Dynasty watchtowers. Walk at your own pace as you traverse the wall to the watchtowers, becoming immersed in the history and myths told by your local guide. Along the way, you will have great views and photo opportunities of the wall snaking through the beautiful countryside. You can choose to descend the Great Wall by toboggan or take the scenic cable car.
Scaling the Great Wall will leave you with an appetite.You’ll get the opportunity to try some Chinese specialty dishes as you enjoy a traditional lunch served in a nearby local village. To soothe your weary feet, you will end the day with a reflexology foot massage.
You'll return to Beijing in the early evening.
One of the highlights of our trip. Dennis the guide was very good. Be ready for a hike on this one. It took about 30 minutes of stair climibing to get up to the wall. Views were spectacular. This secton of the wall is in great shape. We walked through 5 of the towers. Took the toboggan back to the bottom. Great fun and highly recommended. Watch the vendors, they'll ask 150 and sell for 20. You need to negotiate and be ready to walk away. They'll chase you down to make the sale.
Again, a brilliant tour and tour guide. Everything as per the tour description. Suitable for all abilities and a must do whilst in Beijing.
