The Great Wall all to yourself!
, Jan 2020
We went on this tour on 27.12. Initially we were not that excited about the 7am departure but it ended up being amazing! We were the first people on the wall on that day and managed to get heaps of photos of an empty wall. Lily was our guide and she was excellent, spoke great english and had lots of interesting facts and information. The bus trip took around 90 minutes and then Lily organised the tickets, we took the chairlift up to the top (be aware this costs extra, I think 100 CNY pp.) We then had two hours to explore the wall. To get back down I would recommend the slide/toboggan, it was lots of fun! Afterwards we went to lunch at a famous local restaurant, the food was fantastic and could accommodate dietary restrictions. We were back in the city by around 3pm so could still have the afternoon free. Would highly recommend!
Amazing Tour

I had a great day on this tour. Our guide Lili was sweet and welcoming to the group. The group was small - great size, as we moved faster. She was on time on our pick up hotel and everything went as planned. After the wall we had lunch in a very simple chinese restaurant, but boy, the food was amazing!
Good, basic tour with lots of time at the wall
, Sep 2019
Tour guide was good although didn't give a ton of information, loved having almost 2.5 hours at the wall and taking the toboggan down. Also the lunch was great and we were back in the city center by 3:30pm to be able to do other things!
Informative and Exciting
, Aug 2019
Our guide, Emma, helped us navigate the Great Wall so that we maximized our time and minimized fighting crowds. She also recommended great photo spots! With a background in history and impeccable English, she was happy to provide insight not only into the wall, but Chinese culture overall. I loved everything about this excursion.
Overwhelming Beauty!

A great tour!

Lucy was very helpful and eager to please on this tour, which struck the right balance between directed time and freedom to explore. A great way to see a less-crowded part of the wall from Beijing!
Beautiful experience
, Aug 2019
I appreciate that our group got there early enough to enjoy the walk on the walls when it was not too crowded. Our tour guide Lilly, was great! She kept the perfect balance between providing guidance, but allowing space for us to enjoy and experience the sights at our own pace. We had the most delicious home made meal at a bed and breakfast nearby run and owned by a family. It all felt like a very authentic experience.

This was a great tour and I would highly recommend booking this if you’re coming to Beijing to see the Great Wall. Andy our tour guide was fantastic, he explained the history of the wall very well and was very entertaining. We were also given time to walk the wall freely & had a spectacular lunch to end the day. Nothing felt rushed, we definitely got as much time needed at the Wall as we hoped, thank you so much for a perfect day we will never forget.
The Great Wall of China Experience

My guide Joyce made my experience of the Great Wall knowledgeable and skilled. Joyce had knowledge of everything about the structure the building of the wall. This tour was a delight even though it was two of on this tour we had the best time ever Joyce did a hell of a good job she's the best at what she does.
Great Wall day trip

We booked this tour to the Mutianyu section of the Great Wall very easily through Viator. The hotel where we met the mini-bus to take the tour was centrally located in Beijing, and although it was quite early, we were glad to be setting off to the Great Wall early to avoid rush hour traffic. Our guide Lucy could not have been more gracious. She provided lots of interesting information about the history of the Great Wall on our morning drive. Once we arrived, Lucy helped us plan our time on the Wall. We quickly realized it takes longer than you think to walk this section of the Wall, as there are parts that are very steep with lots of stairs. But, just being on the Wall is magnificent. The views here are breathtaking! We would absolutely recommend visiting this section of the Wall, which we read was the best restored section and not crowded (true on both fronts). Afterwards, our guide walked us down the hill to the town below the Wall, where we enjoyed a delicious lunch of so many Chinese dishes! It was great! Thank you Lucy for a wonderful day!
