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.

  • 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

Yes. They can arrange for you once you let them know. We did the same on one day, morning for the Great Wall and afternoon for the Tombs.
