Private Tour: Half-Day Tour to Great Wall at Juyongguan

Depart from your Beijing hotel in a private, air-conditioned vehicle and travel to the Great Wall of China; a structural masterpiece considered one of China’s most significant. Disembark the minivan and spend a moment gazing at the wall, cradled by verdant mountains and dramatic valleys covered in lush greenery. 

Set out on your moderate 2-hour hike with your accomplished guide and listen to captivating commentary as you climb the Juyongguan section; hear of how the area served as a military stronghold and was the site of many bloody battles. Ascend to the Cloud Platform, a majestic area in which an arched doorway and engraved sutra scriptures reign supreme. 

Spend some relaxed free time admiring the carvings of heavenly gods and capture picturesque views of exotic flowers on camera before returning to the hike’s start point. Enjoy a well-deserved rest during the journey back to Beijing, stopping off at the Olympic Stadium (Birds Nest) and the Beijing National Aquatics Center (Water Cube) to see significant cultural institutions from the 2008 Olympics. 

Bid your private guide farewell as you disembark at your hotel with magical memories of your day.

This tour was truly amazing. Took part in it on a rainy, foggy day by the lead of a fantastic, professional personal Guide (Lee) and a kind Driver.
At first, I can recommmend Novotel Hotel at Sanyuanqiao (can be located with ease by Airport Express - as a starting point and the staff was really helpful (despite I was not their Guest, treated me like that) when wanted to call my contacts, also gave free Wifi, etc.
The way to and from the Wall was awesome. I was just listening to whole China's history (Lee was prepared! :D), the establishment of different areas, the kingdoms, about the main purpose of the Wall, etc. Also had the chance to take a glimpse onto the the Bird's Nest (Olympic Stadium, Opening Ceremony Point of the 2008 one), despite it was not in the original program. Full generosity.
The Wall appeared as a romantic spot, was a real adventure to climb up to the top on the slippery stairs and look around on this top quality, world heritage site.
After the ~1,5-2h walkaround, got back to the city just before time and could catch my plane without any worries.
Can not say other than the service was 1st class and you should not miss this organization when you meet with some of the same opportunities as me.
