    What to Expect
    Start your day with early morning pickup at your Beijing hotel and 2 hour transfer in a private air-conditioned vehicle. Then you will start your romantic Simatai Great Wall and Gubei Water Town Tour. 

    First take the ferry to the foot of the Great Wall, ride on a cable-car to the summit. Once you are up there, walk a little bit, you will see lots of locks and wishing cards running up the side on a chain after coming out of the cable car. Afterwards, you will receive a Love Lock or a wooden wishing card from your tour guide, hang a padlock and throw the key away so that your love is locked forever. This is not only for lovers but also can be for the family members and close friends to put on the locks here. Lock your forever love or best friendship here, or hang a wishing card to wish the best luck to your family members and friends.

    Continue to your tour by foot, you will be amazed with how untouched and well preserved this Great Wall still remains since Ming Dynasty. The Simatai Great Wall is located 120km away from Beijing. Originally built during the Northern Qi dynasty (550–577) and rebuilt in the Hongwu years of the Ming dynasty. It's 5.4 km long with 35 beacon towers, known for its steepness. This part of your trekking is one of the most beautiful sections among the Great Wall. The entire Wall is yours, and you can explore it by your own pace. It really is an architectural wonder.

    After finishing this hike, take the cable car down. Now you can start walking around in Gubei Water Town, relax yourself in the ancient town. You will be surrounded by the beautiful Mandarin Duck Lake Reservoir. You surely will have a very unique experience in this rare natural old town with a combination of mountains, water, ancient villages and hilly-area quadrangle dwellings.

    Enjoy a tasty lunch meal at the Water Town or after your the Water Town visit (at your own cost). 

    Your tour ends with hotel drop-off in Beijing in the late afternoon.
