Your morning begins with a hotel pickup by your tour guide and driver. You’ll travel roughly 1.5-hours until you reach the Mutianyu section of the UNESCO-listed Great Wall of China. Choose from getting a chairlift or cable car up the wall, and then spend a couple of hours hiking in your own time. If you fancy a different way of getting down the wall, you can choose a toboggan ride (additional costs apply).

Enjoy a delicious lunch at a Chinese restaurant before visiting the next stop—Summer Palace. You’ll see an immaculately preserved royal garden, as well as a lake, bridges, trees, temples, and historic pavilions. It’s a popular summer holiday destination for Imperial families, and between April and October, there are Dragon Boat rides available too (additional costs apply). The tour ends with a return trip back to your hotel.

Half day Wall trip

Jhonny was our tour guide. He was very knowledgeable about the Wall and kept us hydrated well on the long drive and walk. Best part was that jhonny knew all the right spots for some epic pictures!
