Highlights

  • Small group ensures personal service
The Great Wall of China was originally built more than 2,000 years ago to ward off Hun intruders from the north. Today, the wall is considered one of the New Seven Wonders of the World and makes a great Beijing day trip.

You'll travel by air-conditioned minivan to the less-touristy Mutianyu section of the Great Wall of China, located 56 miles (90 kilometers) from Beijing. This section of the Great Wall offers unparalleled views from the Ming Dynasty watchtowers. Walk at your own pace as you traverse the wall to the watchtowers, becoming immersed in the history and myths told by your local guide. Along the way, you will have great views and photo opportunities of the wall snaking through the beautiful countryside. You can choose to descend the Great Wall by toboggan or take the scenic cable car.

Scaling the Great Wall will leave you with an appetite.You’ll get the opportunity to try some Chinese specialty dishes as you enjoy a traditional lunch served in a nearby local village. You'll return to Beijing after lunch.

This is a MUST SEE landmark and I saw it with the marvelous tour guide, Viv, who made it even better! Plus, although my mobility is somewhat limited and I was warned by colleagues not to go on the tour due to the climbing, I was delighted to find a ski lift to take me up to the Wall as well as being able to ride a toboggan down again so fun!. I only had issues walking from the parking lot, but once I made it to the lift it was easy. Granted, I didn't walk that far when I got on the Wall, as there are stairs everywhere, but I had enough time to go slowly and was able to visit a few of the watch towers.

After, we went to a village for lunch, instead of being herded like cattle into the 'tourist' spots, and had a great meal, before riding back through the countryside to Beijing.

Thanks to Viv for a fabulous day.
