Overview
A tour is, effectively, the only way to see the Summer Palace and the Great Wall at Mutianyu in a day. Travel to these icons of imperial China in style, with an experienced private guide. Start at the scenic Mutianyu stretch of the Great Wall—your package includes either round-trip cable car tickets or the chairlift up and toboggan down. After a restaurant lunch, explore the Summer Palace’s glorious gardens.

The Great Wall and Summer Palace both sell themselves for the wonders they are. This particular tour was set apart due to the excellent services of our guide Mr. Li and driver Mr. Xu. Mr. Xu as a driver did everything that you would expect from a personalized tour experience.
