Make your own way to a meeting point in central Beijing to greet your guide and your group, then begin the 1.5-drive to the Mutianyu Great Wall.
On arrival, spend roughly three hours exploring the wall: take a chair lift and toboggan ride (own expense), hike along the trail, and snap photos of scenic vistas, all while hearing the stories behind this iconic global attraction. Break for lunch at a popular restaurant near the Great Wall—a small-group tour of 15 people or fewer means shorter waiting times at the restaurant and more time exploring.
The tour concludes at your original departure point.
