Highlights
    What to Expect
    After pick up from your hotel in Beijing in the early morning, transfer to the Beijing Train Station with your private guide and catch the bullet train to Qinghuangdao City with included tickets (a 2-hour journey). Upon arrival, you will first visit Old Dragon's Head in Laolongtou, the easternmost end of the Great Wall, where the wall juts out into Bohai Sea. This section was first built in the Ming dynasty, in 1579, and was largely repaired during the Qing dynasty, in 1668.

    Continue your tour to the famous Shanhaiguan Pass (Shanhai Pass), known as the 'First Pass Under Heaven.' The well-preserved first gate of Great Wall, it used to be part of an important defense against intrusions by the nomadic people from the north. You can see the Shanhaiguan Gate Tower and visit the Great Wall Museum nearby. Enjoy a typical Chinese lunch at a local restaurant before visiting the Old Town in the Shanhaiguan Pass area in the afternoon. If time allows, you can also visit the Jiaoshan Great Wall.

    After a day spent in Qinghuangdao, your guide will accompany you on the late afternoon bullet train back to Beijing, where you will be transferred back to your hotel in the evening.

    It was different, but takes to long to get there and back. NO time there to do everything the add says. The guide was very good at her job and fun. Had to take the regular train back, for some reason. Felt like I was cheated out of my money, by that. If you have money to throw

    Response from Beijing-guide-Lily, Manager at Great Wall Origins: Beijing Bullet Train to Qinghuangdao Private Day Trip
    Responded 2 Sep 2019
    Dear Thomas, Thank you taking your valuable time to share your experience to us. We are very sorry to hear about it. The first, the tour was a big day tour. It took over 10 hours for this tour. The second, the bullet train tickets we bought for the way back was temporary changed to a regular train by the state. They told us it was only for Summer holiday 2 months. It never happened in the normal days. But also we won't buy this train anymore. It was a mistake. We also refund you for the bullet train problem. We will try our best to satisfy you for your next Beijing trip. Regards Lily

    We spend another great day with Lily. And we did not make it easy. We changed times, add a friend last minute and gave wrong passport details. Lily sailed through all of these issues and we had a great day. Despite it being freezing. Part of the wall was also closed because of
