    You will be picked up from Beijing capital airport or a nearby hotel by your guide and private vehicle.

    Then we will drive to original Great Wall (1.5 hours drive). After 1-1.5 hours visit, we will escort you back to your hotel or airport. The whole tour will last about 4-5 hours.

    This Great Wall located in northern Huairou district of Beijing. It is the only lakeside Great Wall in Beijing. About 80km away from airport. It is one of the top destinations for a Great Wall hiking tour and camping base. As this part of Great Wall is more original and no cable car there, so visitors should be in good physical condition.

    We had a 24-hour layover in Beijing and wanted to make the most of it, so we decided to book a day tour to the wall. Our guide, Michael, picked us up directly from our hotel at the time we requested. It was just us for the tour, so Michael was very flexible and accommodating.
