Small-Group Ming Tomb and Mutianyu Great Wall Tour from Beijing

Overview
The Great Wall of China is one of the world’s top attractions, an ancient stone barricade running over 1,300 miles through the countryside. Parts of the wall that are easily reached from Beijing are crowded with visitors, but you’ll visit the quieter, more scenic Mutianyu Wall during this convenient, action-packed tour, which also includes stops at the impressive Ming Tombs, a local jade factory, and an authentic tea ceremony.
Highlights
  • An in-depth combo tour of Mutianyu Great Wall and Ming Tombs
  • Explore a quieter, less-visited stretch of wall, considered the most scenic
  • Opt for a toboggan or cable-car ride up the wall at your own expense
  • Stop for a savory local lunch and visit to an authentic jade workshop 
What to Expect
Snaking around the Chinese countryside for over 13,000 miles, the UNESCO-listed Great Wall is one of the world’s most iconic historical attractions. But many sections of the ancient stone barricade are in poor condition. During this convenient private tour from Beijing, you’ll head to the picturesque, under-the-radar Mutianyu Wall for a first-hand peek at the most scenic stretch. Most private tours only cover the Great Wall. But after departing from Beijing in a comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle, you’ll head first to the Ming Tombs, a set of impressive mausoleums housing the remains of ten Chinese emperors. Then, after a savory lunch at a local restaurant, you’ll learn about the history of China’s most famous mineral with a visit to a jade workshop. Settle back for scenic, countryside views as you’re brought to the quieter Mutianyu Wall, which receives fewer tourists than other sections. Wander the site at your own pace, taking time to climb the 700-year-old watchtowers. Before being comfortably dropped back to your Beijing hotel, you’ll round off the day by partaking in a traditional tea ceremony.

The tour was excellent. My only gripe would be that Tina walked way too quickly and it was hard to keep up with her with the children. Highly recommend.

My Guide was Carrie and I have to say she was the most Informative, helpful and fun guide I have ever encountered. The tour starts with Jade, Tombs, Great Wall and then Tea ceremony. I really enjoyed all aspects of the tour and the lunch provided was a banquet and very tasty.

Small group with only 12 pax in min bus. Nothing much too see at Ming tomb. Mutianyu great wall is nice and less crowded. Lunch can be better. The jade factory (Ok) and tea ceremony (good). Generally, a good day tour.
