Beijing Day Trip of Mutianyu Great Wall and Ming Tombs by Bus
From US$39.00
Visit two UNESCO World Heritage Sites in one day on this tour to the Mutianyu Great Wall and Ming Tombs. Arrive with the ease of private transportation and explore on your own upon arrival—your guide is available to answer any questions but won’t rush you through your tour. All entrance fees, an included lunch, and visits to a jade factory and tea ceremony add to this tour’s great value.
What to Expect
Your tour begins with morning pickup from your Beijing hotel. Begin to learn about Chinese imperial history as your guide navigates traffic en route to the 500-year-old Ming Tombs. Spend two hours exploring an underground mausoleum and royal tombs on your own.

Then, eat a traditional Chinese lunch before heading to a jade carving factory to learn about the culture and craft of jade in Chinese society.

Next, continue to the Mutianyu Great Wall, one of the best-preserved parts of the Great Wall. Optionally ride a cable car to the highest point (own expense), or relax and walk the wall on your own.

Conclude your tour with a traditional tea ceremony and hotel drop-off.

Good trip, but the Ming Tombs are forgettable

The Great Wall at Mutianyu is wonderful, and much less crowded than what I had been led to expect at Badaling. I would certainly encourage people to visit Mutianyu. However, the Ming Tombs portion of the trip was quite forgettable. It is an impressively large...More

Great Wall

The guide was knowledgeable and the Great Wall was fantastic but we could have used some more time at the wall instead of the stops at the jade factory and the tea ceremony. We found ourselves rushing at the wall and the folks taking the...More

Decent Value for a Great Wall Trip, but Beware of the Pace

This was an excellent trip for its value, but buyers should know exactly what they're getting. If you're looking for a comprehensive, and QUICK jaunt to the Great Wall and Ming Tombs, then this is probably the packaged for you. But know that there's very...More
