Mutianyu Great Wall Private Day Tour with English Driver

Select Date and Travellers
US$ 58.00
2 travellers
Enjoy a flexible, private 8-hour tour to the famous Mutianyu Great Wall with your friendly English-speaking driver during your time in Beijing. The pickup point can be at your hotel, local residence, train station in Beijing or even at the Beijing Capital International Airport (PEK). The Great Wall entrance ticket is included in the price. If you wish to ride the cable car or toboggan on the wall, those would be at your own expense.
  • Visit China’s iconic Great Wall, a UNESCO World Heritage Site
  • Explore the popular and well-restored Mutianyu section independently
  • Enjoy private, door-to-door, round-trip transportation from Beijing
  • Meet your driver at your accommodation, the train station, or the airport
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.
