This tour begins with pickup from your central Beijing hotel at a time of your choosing. Traveling by comfortable private vehicle, set out on the around 1.5-hour drive.

Upon arrival, your driver will assist with tickets and then leave you to explore independently. Optional extras include a ride to the top of the wall by cable car and a toboggan ride back down (both own expense). Depending on your arrival time, you typically have around three hours at the wall to hike and take photos. It’s also possible to customize your tour and stop at other sights en-route if you prefer.

Back in Beijing, your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.

Our trip was about 7 hours total (and we climbed the wall for a little over 2). We paid $96 for 2 which includes admission. (We paid for the cable car/sled ticket separate but don’t recall the price.)
