Overview

Take a private full-day tour from Beijing to visit two top attractions: the Mutianyu section of the Great Wall of China, and the Summer Palace. Have the option to book your private guide and driver only, or choose the all-inclusive option to include lunch, entrance fees, cable car and toboggan at the Great Wall, along with your private guide and driver.
  • Private full-day tour to the Mutianyu section of the Great Wall and Summer Palace, from Beijing
  • Take in one of the seven wonders of the world: the Great Wall of China
  • Explore the lavish grounds of the Summer Palace
  • Includes private guide and driver, hotel pickup and drop-off, and the option to cover other expenses
After morning pickup at your hotel in Beijing, travel in an air-conditioned private vehicle to the Mutianyu section of the Great Wall, a journey that takes about 1.5 hours.

The Mutianyu section is less crowded than other parts of the Great Wall of China. Ride a cable car up to the top of this World Heritage Site, get great photo ops, and have the option to take a toboggan back down. 

Take a break for lunch in a local restaurant, then continue to the Summer Palace, located about one hour away. The Summer Palace features many beautiful pavilions, temples, ornate bridges, and a huge lake. Your guide points out highlights such as the Long Corridor, Seventeen Arches Bridge, Qingyan Stone Boat, Kunming Lake, and Longevity Hill.

When booking, you can choose the all-inclusive option, which covers your private guide and driver, lunch, entrance fees, and tickets for the cable car and toboggan at the Great Wall, or simply book your private guide and driver only.

Your tour ends in the late afternoon with drop-off at your hotel.

Great way to see the great wall and summer palace. Our guide was terrific in giving us a tour of the wall and then giving us time to roam around on our own. The guide's English was very good and explanations very interesting. Highly recommend the tour.

We booked this last minute and couldn't have been more delighted! The reply was super quick and Sherry and our driver were fantastic. Sherry checked in with us the evening before to ensure we were prepared for our trip and the timings. She met us promptly the next morning and happily gave us information about China's history on the drive to the Wall so we could fully understand what we were going to see, all the while pointing out landmarks as well. She took us up to the Wall, explained the different options and histories and then left us alone to wander at leisure for about 2 hours. We then met for lunch and drove back to the Summer Palace. Again at the Summer Palace Sherry was invaluable. She managed to take us on a route that avoided most of the coach tour groups whilst still taking us to the landmarks and telling us all about it. Having the driver was great because he was able to drive around to meet us at the other side of the palace so after we'd toured through we didn't have to try and walk all the way back through the crowds. Highly recommend!

Great trip to the Great wall. Amazing architecture, wonderful scenery. Built on tops of mountains that go on forever. Spectacular beyond belief. The Summer Palace is truly spectacular depicting the Four Seasons in its buildings. Artwork is everywhere The lake that the Palace sits around adds to the beauty of the place. This was the Empresses favourite place. Gorgeous grounds. Our tour guide, Sherry was very good. Very informative. and interesting. Our driver was great to get us around everywhere safely. Great tour!!! Chris and Diana Canada
