After hotel pickup in Beijing by your guide in an air-conditioned vehicle (only hotels within the second ring road of the downtown area are included), your day tour starts with the drive to the Ming Tombs, a series of mausoleums built by China's Ming dynasty emperors.
When you arrive, you have time to look around, and then visit a local restaurant for lunch. You also have the chance to learn about China's history and culture of jade. After eating, head to your second destination, the Great Wall at Mutianyu. Enjoy views of the countryside as you pass through a village, and then head up the mountain via cable car (own expense). You can also get back down from the wall on a toboggan (own expense). Enjoy time to walk on the wall and take photos before starting the trip back to Beijing, stopping on the way for a short traditional tea ceremony.
Your tour ends with hotel drop-off in the central city.
