What to Expect
Your morning begins with a hotel pickup by your tour guide and driver. You’ll travel to the Mutianyu section of the UNESCO-listed Great Wall of China. Choose from getting a chairlift or cable car up the wall, and then spend a couple of hours hiking in your own time. If you fancy a different way of getting down the wall, you can choose a toboggan ride (additional costs apply). Enjoy a delicious lunch at a Chinese restaurant before visiting the next stop—Summer Palace. You’ll see an immaculately preserved royal garden, as well as a lake, bridges, trees, temples, and historic pavilions. It’s a popular summer holiday destination for Imperial families, and between April and October, there are Dragon Boat rides available too (additional costs apply). The tour ends with a return trip back to your hotel.
