What You Can Expect

Great Wall of China at Badaling and Ming Tombs Day Tour from Beijing

Great Wall

Depart from your Beijing hotel in a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan and admire the rural scenery as you escape bustling Beijing. Stop first at the Great Wall of China, an iconic landmark illustrating the innovation of ancient Chinese engineering. Venture to the Badaling section, one of the best-preserved parts of the structure, and listen as your guide provides an engaging narrative about the attraction’s history. 

Climb either the north or south face of the wall to absorb panoramic vistas of the surrounding scenery. Stroll the fortification to discover the watchtowers and natural havens that pepper the UNESCO World Heritage Site. 

After thorough exploration of the ancient wonder, head to the sacred Ming tombs to discover the burial grounds of ancient Ming emperors. Marvel at three of the excavated tombs and hear of the extravagant lives led by the mausoleum’s inhabitants. Refuel with an authentic Chinese-style lunch then browse the bespoke shops of the Longdi Jade Factory for special souvenirs. 

Relax during the journey back to Beijing by comfortable coach and bid your guide farewell at your hotel.

This is a fairly touristy section of the wall. The views are breathtaking up top. It and #39;s not a simple hike, and they don and #39;t give you a ton of time, so make sure you wear comfy shoes, bring water, and hustle on up so you make it to the top in time!

Amazing day. We had a fabulous weather in contrast to the previous day on my arrival in Beijing when it was smoggy and you could only manage to see 50 metres ahead. The Great Wall and its surrounds spread in front of you in its majesty and I wished we could have stayed a bit longer, and luckily the tour guide had a great eye for taking photos. Lunch was standard pre-cooked Chinese meal.

Picked up at our hotel on time by our tour guide Jackie Li, a very informative and knowledgeable person indeed. Our visit to the Great Wall at Badaling was incredible, not to be missed if you visit China. Found the Ming Tombs a bit disappointing compared to the wall though. The typical Chinese meal was excellent, sampled a lot of different dishes. A visit to the Jade factory / shop was also included in the tour as well as having traditional Chinese tea. All in all, a great tour and highly recommend it. A big thank you to our tour guide Jackie, by the way, nice photos Jackie.

Definitely an incredible day with an even better guide. Obviously for the price, you know to expect a bit of sales on the agenda. Be ready for the jade factory and tea ceremony to be dedicated to trying to get you to buy something.

We were picked up from out hotel that was not so central in Beijing, for which we are very gratefull. The guide decided to change the order of the visits to stay out off the traffic jams. This definately paid off, giving us more time to climb the Great Wall. On the way, we received extra information about habits and rules in China to help us during our stay. The guide proved also to be an experienced photographer so that everybody could be IN the picture. Thank you Jacky !
