The Great Wall of China and Longqing Gorge are two top attractions outside Beijing, but organizing transportation to visit them independently cuts into valuable sightseeing time. On this private tour, begin with pickup at your Beijing hotel and explore both sites in one day. Visit the Badaling Great Wall with your cable car ticket included, and take to the waters of the Longqing Gorge for spectacular countryside views.

Lucy was a fantastic tour guide and her English was excellent (vocabulary and accent) and she was very easy to hear! She was very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions thoroughly. She walked the Great wall with us and helped us capture our memories by pointing out the best spots for photos and playing photographer. The gorge was a highlight of this tour, and of our trip, and I highly recommend it. The boat is a nice approximately 30 minute round trip tour around some beautiful mountains. The boat tour was in Chinese, but Lucy was able to describe each of the rock formations (many of which look like animals). We took a walk through the park area and saw some truly breathtaking views. Also, the lunch was excellent. Lucy had paid attention to what we liked and took care to order a lunch that did not disappoint!
The gorge is beautiful and the wall is obviously worth seeing. Vivianne was a great guide. She's very considerate and her English is solid so she can share a lot of information with you on so many topics if you're interested to chat during the drive. The driver was also lovely. Badaling offers the best views of the wall but it's the most crowded.
