Itinerary Quick Look

Here is a suggested itinerary. We are happy to customize a tour according to your interests. If you would like to visit the other attractions in Beijing instead of the Great Wall, please let us know. We will give the best suggestion according to your schedule in Beijing

Meet Your Guide at the Airport

According to your schedule, your private guide will wait for you in the arrivals hall at the Beijing Capital Airport, holding a card displaying your name. A comfortable vehicle (non-smoking) with an experienced driver will be ready to begin your tour of the Great Wall at Mutianyu from the airport.

Visit the Great Wall at Mutianyu

Enjoy your time walking on the Wall at your own pace. Take in the spectacular scenery of the Great Wall snaking along the mountain ridges as far as the eye can see. Your guide's insights will make the stories behind the Wall come to alive: what it cost to build and defend, wars on the wall...

We will also arrange a round-trip cable car to ascend and descend the wall, instead of spending about 40 minutes climbing steps.

Note: We understand you might not have any local currency for this short Beijing layover tour. You also might not have enough time to sit in a restaurant to have lunch. We will prepare soft drinks and snacks (chocolate, chips, and cookies) for you.

Drive back to the Airport

We will drive you back to the Beijing Capital Airport. Your personal guide will help you check in and will say goodbye to you at the entrance to the security checkpoint.
