Overview
Unless you speak Chinese, public transportation to the Great Wall, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is challenging in the extreme. Take it easy with this private trip, which includes door-to-door round-trip transport from your downtown hotel plus a guide at the site. Upgrade to add a Chinese lunch, entrance tickets, and a return trip down the wall by cable car or chairlift and toboggan.

    Mutianyu Great Wall
    Stop: 2 minutes - Admission included
    The Mutianyu Great Wall is considered the most beautiful section in Beijng. Located in Huairou County 72km northeast of Beijing, it stands opposite of Badaling Great Wall, connected with Juyongguan Pass in the west and Gubeikou Gateway in the east. The whole area is like a garden on a mountain top. There are abundant natural springs which feed a great variety of plants and fruit trees, keeping the air fresh all year long. The scenic beauty is excellent especially in spring and autumn.
