    Mutianyu Great Wall
    Stop: 4 hours - Admission included
    The Mutianyu section of the Great Wall offers a unique experience to visitors who would like to view a less crowded and more peaceful part of The Great Wall of China which is free from crowds of other tourists. The Mutianyu section is a restored masterpiece that is surrounded by beautiful scenery, lush greenery, and hills with flowing streams. There are cable cars accessible along Mutianyu, making it easy for visitors to travel up and down the Great Wall. The walk from the base to the top takes around 40-60 minutes but ultimately, you can choose how to spend your visit as the Mutianyu section is divided by 22 watchtowers that provide either flat, easy walks, or more challenging, steeper treks towards the top. Morning Tour Itinerary: 07:30: Meet the tour guide and driver at the Meeting Point before proceeding to the Great Wall at Mutianyu. 09:30: Arrive at the Mutianyu section of the Great Wall. After you have arrived, you may explore the wonderfully restored Mutianyu section of Great Wall for approximately 4 hours. There are cable cars accessible along Mutianyu, making it easy for visitors to travel up and down the Great Wall at their own pace. There will be a lunch break where you can enjoy dishes from a local restaurant near the Great Wall (optional). 14:30: After the tour, we will head back to Beijing. 16:30: Arrive at downtown where you can alight at the closest subway station. Afternoon Tour Same as Morning: 12:00: Departure time. 13:30: Arrive at the Mutianyu Great Wall. 17:30: Heading back to Beijing. 19:30: Arrive at downtown where you can alight at the closest subway station.

Great trip to Great Wall
The tour to the wall was great, the lunch stop was delicious, and our guide Linda was super helpful and knowledgeable, she really went above and beyond to make our trip and our broader stay enjoyable. Definitely recommend this section of the wall to people wanting to see the wall on a short trip, it’s stunning and not at all crowded and provides a decent walking challenge but without being too strenuous. If anything I wish we’d had longer at the wall, so if you’re short on time book this group tour, or if you have longer book a private tour (the same company also does private tours) to have as long as you like there 😊

Not what I expected
Aug 2019 • Solo
When I decided to buy this tour it was because they let you stay in the great wall 4 hours to be at your own and have your time to appreciate it, and after that only visit the jade store I was ok with that, but... They where late 30 min to pick me up at me hotel because the others where late, first red flag then when we arrived to the great wall the tour guide explain to us that it will be better if we took the cable car instead of the tobogán (after I realized that she told us that because it was fast to finish and then go to another place) we didn't stay in the great wall the time that the tour said and they where rushing us to go to a tea ceremony thing that it wasn't included and I didn't want to go. At the end I enjoy being in the great wall but I will not recommended this tour because they don't give you the things and time that says in the description

Inexpensive & Easy Option to see the Great Wall
I was a first time China/Beijing solo traveler looking for an inexpensive and non-intimidating way to travel to Mutianyu, which is exactly what this tour provided.

I booked this tour after I arrived in China but a few days before the tour date. I did have to call the night before about pickup confirmation since I hadn’t heard anything from anyone, but they were very nice on the phone and let me know shortly after the call when my pickup time would be. The next morning I was picked up by Leo & the bus driver (they were running late due to the first pickups having canceled last minute, but no big deal). I was first on, and we stopped twice to only pickup 3 others. Looked like the bus could fit about 25. Leo spoke to us for a moment about some Beijing history on the way.

We stopped at a Jade factory before heading to the wall, and if you’ve been browsing tours on TripAdvisor/Viator you’ve probably seen mentions of stops at jade/silk/pearl/tea places- this is just something you have to put up with on tours like these. I didn’t buy anything at these places since they’re ridiculously overpriced and only meant for foreign tourists. But I did find it entertaining to look around.

From there we went to the wall. Entry to the park is included with the tour price, but you have to purchase your ticket for either the cable car (enclosed) or ski lift/toboggan to actually get up onto the wall. I went for the ski lift up, toboggan down, it seemed like the most fun and it was the cheapest at 120RMB total. You tell the tour guide which option you prefer and give them the cash, then they purchase the park entry tickets and lift tickets and direct you how to get to the lifts. You then have about 4 hours to get up, explore the wall, and come back down to the meeting point. Then it’s back on the bus to be dropped off at your hotel again. I was dropped off around 3:30pm.

For about 20 USD this tour is a no brainer. Just book it.

Fantastic
Jun 2019 • Friends
We had an amazing time David our guide was full of information, not just about the great wall but Beijing and the best places to visit. We had 4hrs on the wall that gave us plenty of time to slow down and really enjoy it. Also had enough time to sit and have a beer. Lunch is not included but it was nice to sit on the top of the wall and enjoy our own packed lunch. This was a great way to see the wall and would recommend it to anyone.

My only negative thing was we stopped at the jade factory it was very interesting but we were followed the whole time in the shop and were been pushed to buy something we just walked out and sat outside and waited for the rest of our group.

Amazing trip, fantastic value for money
Apr 2019 • Friends
booked this trip in advance and it was fantastic. Our guide, Mike called me at the hotel the night prior to let me know the pick up time. It was only a small group of 10 people. The trip allowed us to stop for breakfast and lunch at our own expense, and we paid for the cable car ride return which is a must.

Mikes knowledge was second to none, and the trip was extremely well organised

The trip was excellent value for money and I would recommend this tour and company 100%
