Mini Group: Beijing Forbidden City Tour with Great Wall Hiking at Mutianyu

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Visit the Great Wall of China and Forbidden City in one day. Skip the line at the Forbidden City as our VIP guests, hiking on Mutianyu Great Wall after crowds leave. Make full use of your precious time in Beijing and deeply discover the history and culture of Beijing. No shopping, no factories, no queues!
  • Combine three top Beijing-area attractions in a single day tour
  • Enjoy a skip-the-line admission ticket to the often-crowded Forbidden City
  • Cable car ride to the top of the Great Wall of China saves time
  • Round-trip transport, lunch, and all admission tickets are included for a hassle-free experience
What to Expect
Begin your tour with convenient early-morning hotel pickup. Board the comfortable vehicle and head straight for Tiananmen Square. Learn about the area’s history, take photos in front of Chairman Mao’s Mausoleum, and visit the Gate of Heavenly Peace.

From here, enter the Forbidden City, skipping the long entry line and proceeding directly inside. Take in the traditional Chinese architecture, and hear all about the ancient Chinese emperors who lived here. Rather than visit all 9,999 rooms, your guide has carefully selected 10 to best represent the palace and maximize your experience.

Leave Beijing for the Mutianyu section of the Great Wall of China, where you’ll board the time-saving cable car up to the top. Spend about two hours hiking between the 14th and 23rd watchtowers while your guide sheds light on the wall's history and significance.

Relax and rest on the ride back to Beijing for hotel drop-off.

Just had a play on the Tripadvisor Booking form. Price for two adults is $364.66 AUD - and for 1 adult and 1 child the price is 336.94 - so a bit of discount for a child.
