Mutianyu Great Wall Private Day Tour with English Driver

Getting out to the Great Wall independently isn’t easy, unless you speak good Chinese. Take it easy—and at your own pace—on this private day trip. Visit Mutianyu, a scenic section of the wall that’s generally less busy than Badaling, and travel back in time as you stroll its ancient walkways.

What to Expect

Meet your friendly driver/guide at your hotel, apartment, the train station or even the airport, then board your climate-controlled Buick GL8 minivan on route for the Great Wall. Relax as your driver/guide secures your tickets, brings you to the wall, and provides an orientation of what to do while you’re up there.

Besides hiking, you might choose to ride the cable car, chair lift, or toboggan. Bring your own snacks or ask your driver which of the many restaurants around the site they recommend. After your tour is finished, your driver will bring you back to your original departure point.

What a day!

This was a great experience! The hike between towers 20 and 6 was beautiful (we were lucky we had a clear day and the temperatures were perfect!). We soaked up our time there, enjoying every bit of our 7-mile, 94-floor journey. And this was, for...More

If I remember correctly, you can tell Jimmy beforehand where to pick you up and drop him off. He’s very accommodating.
