Highlights
Exciting combo tour of Mutianyu Great Wall and Summer Palace
Photo op at Beijing's famous "Bird's Nest"
Local lunch included
Hotel pickup and drop-off
What to expect
Your day begins with a convenient hotel pickup and scenic drive to the Mutianyu Great Wall, one of the oldest and most rugged sections, covered by picturesque chestnut orchards. Stop for a photo op at Beijing National Stadium, the famous “Bird’s Nest” from the 2008 Summer Olympics. Unlike the tourist-packed Badaling Wall, which is closer to the city, Mutianyu remains less explored, so you have time to leisurely wander the iconic monument without the crowds. You can even climb ancient watchtowers for views of the surrounding countryside. Break for a mouthwatering authentic lunch at a local restaurant. Then get ready to shift gears—and jump over a 1,000 years forward in time—at the 18th-century Summer Palace, known as the best-preserved imperial garden in the world. Enjoy the UNESCO-listed landscaped grounds, once home to powerful Qing rulers, before getting dropped back at your hotel in Beijing.

Great Wall and Summer Palace Tour
Apr 2021
Qing & her team were very easy to work with- Qing was our tour guide, translator, photographer, & provided transportation from our hotel to both locations. She made our tour a memorable learning experience & we are glad we chose to work with her & Discover Beijing Tours. We would definitely book Qing again when we return to Beijing!

This was the very first tour I’ve been a part of. Our guide Qing was amazing! She talked about the history and gave us a bunch of information on the locations we visited. She took great photos for memories and was overall great to be around. Would highly recommend this tour and tour guide.

Good Tour with Linda!
Dec 2019
Fluent in English (and Chinese of course) and energetic, it was great to have Linda as our day tour guide. She made things run smoothly and her foresight and planning helped to facilitate our wish to try, amongst others, the cable car up and toboggan down the Great Wall even though there were significant crowds that morning. The tour happened in April 2019 but this review is posted much belatedly!

The BEST Day !!!
Jul 2019
This day is one I will never forget. We went on the fourth of July... the HOTTEST day. Lucy took us to a private part of the wall and knew the best spot to take pictures. I have SO many pictures from that day that I will always treasure. It has always been a dream of mine to go to the Great Wall and it exceeded every expectation. My mom absolutely LOVED every picture she took of my brother and I and we used it for our christmas card. She then took us to the most delicious lunch. She ordered the BEST meal for us and we still dream about that lunch. One of the best meals I have ever had. I can't share enough great things about this day. We ended at the Summer Palace which was beyond gorgeous. We still talk about this day frequently.

Great Wall and Summer Palace
Jan 2020 • Friends
We went to Mutianyu and Summer Palace with Jimmy. He was a wonderful tour guide and made sure we were comfortable the whole time. Since we were there in January, it was less crowded, and still had some snow. Such an amazing experience! We went to a private home for lunch. My friend is a vegetarian, and Jimmy made sure there would be a selection for her as well. The dumplings were fabulous! Then we went to The summer palace. Such a sight! The lake was frozen, and everyone was still utilizing it! I cannot say enough about our tour guide Jimmy, he even let us shop and translated for us.

Great Tour
Jan 2020 • Family
Took this tour last week with the lovely Linda. Easy pickup from our hotel and it was a nice drive out to the Great Wall. The wall was covered in snow so we had some real “picture postcard” photo opportunities. Linda’s knowledge of the Wall and general Chinese culture was amazing and I would have no hesitation in recommending this tour.

Great Wall and Summer Palace
As part of a whistle stop tour of three Chinese cities I decided to book to go to the Great Wall and Summer Palace. Susan the guide met me at the hotel and we were driven out to the wall. A pleasant drive that didn’t take too long.
The Great Wall was deserted as it was snowing (making the pix even better). We gingerly climbed up both sides and Susan was kind enough to get a few pics of me along the way. We counted 5 others on the wall! Lunch followed (massive buffet), Jade shop then Summer Palace. I would have liked to explore the palace more but I think that involved different tickets. Following this driven back to hotel.

All in all a good day and pleasant company

Lucy: the perfect guide
Lucy was on time to pick us up from our hotel lobby with a car and driver. She managed to make us visit the Great Wall and the summer palace in time to drop us at the Pearl Market on the same day at 1530. Lucy’s English is impeccable and she is extremely polite and easy going. She organised the perfect lunch for us and was anxious to make sure that we were comfortable and happy throughout the day without being too exhausted. All in all a perfect day in Beijing thanks to Lucy. We will certainly look for her again next time we are in the city.

Off Off Season but Well Worth It
Nov 2019 • Couples
We visited in November, and it was crisp and cold.
Susan was excellent. Good command of English and patient with our requests.
The good news about visiting in the off season was no crowds. You could actually take time to enjoy your visit. The bad news of November in Beijing was the temperature. Our visit to the Summer Palace was rushed and ended early because it was simply too cold to enjoy.
Highly recommend this tour. Ask for Susan.
