Small-Group Ming Tomb and Mutianyu Great Wall Tour from Beijing
US$53.00
Overview

The Great Wall of China is one of the world’s top attractions, an ancient stone barricade running over 1,300 miles through the countryside. Parts of the wall that are easily reached from Beijing are crowded with visitors, but you’ll visit the quieter, more scenic Mutianyu Wall during this convenient, action-packed tour, which also includes stops at the impressive Ming Tombs, a local jade factory, and an authentic tea ceremony.

What to Expect

Snaking around the Chinese countryside for over 13,000 miles, the UNESCO-listed Great Wall is one of the world’s most iconic historical attractions. But many sections of the ancient stone barricade are in poor condition. During this convenient private tour from Beijing, you’ll head to the picturesque, under-the-radar Mutianyu Wall for a first-hand peek at the most scenic stretch.

Most private tours only cover the Great Wall. But after departing from Beijing in a comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle, you’ll head first to the Ming Tombs, a set of impressive mausoleums housing the remains of ten Chinese emperors. Then, after a savory lunch at a local restaurant, you’ll learn about the history of China’s most famous mineral with a visit to a jade workshop.

Settle back for scenic, countryside views as you’re brought to the quieter Mutianyu Wall, which receives fewer tourists than other sections. Wander the site at your own pace, taking time to climb the 700-year-old watchtowers. Before being comfortably dropped back to your Beijing hotel, you’ll round off the day by partaking in a traditional tea ceremony.

Incredible Day

I went on this tour yesterday and it was incredibly nice. First we went to the first Ming Tomb, which was just the temple, but it was beautiful. The climb to the top had an amazing view. For an additional 300 yaun we could have...More
