What to Expect
Your tour will begin with pickup from your centrally-located hotel in Beijing. Hop aboard a private vehicle and drive to Huairou County, where Mutianyu Great Wall locates in, 70 km northeast of central Beijing.It will take about1.5 hours to reach there.

As one of the best-preserved parts of the Great Wall, the Mutianyu section of the Great Wall used to serve as the northern barrier defending the capital and the imperial tombs. In the Ming dynasty, under the supervision of General Xu Da, construction of the present wall began on the foundation of the wall of Northern Qi. The Mutianyu Great Wall has the largest construction scale and best quality among all sections of Great Wall.

Today, this section of wall is open to visitors. You all have this opportunity to admire how gorgeous and magnificent it is. As this is a private tour, your guide can highlight any special interests (architecture, art, history, literature) as you want. And you get to decide how long you want to spend at the Great Wall. Cable car round trip or ski lift up and toboggan down tickets is included to make your experience more enjoyable. 

After a lunch in the local restaurant, you will head back to city to explore the Nanxincang Culture and Leisure Street. 

Your painting experience begin with the welcome tea, gaining artistic inspiration from the decoration and furniture of the traditional Chinese room. Traditional Chinese painting is considered one of the oldest continuous artistic traditions in the world. It uses "Shui Mo" (water and ink), which is a freestyle technique created using a brush dipped in ink and water, and onto rice paper. Your teacher is well respected in the Chinese traditional culture scene. Under the careful guidance, try your hand at using genuine Chinese tools; you'll learn different brush strokes, as well as get a solid introduction to the oriental materials, tools, and the painting subject. 

When you have finished your calligraphy lesson, bid your teacher farewell and take your leave with a unique souvenir to bring home. Travel back to your accommodation where your guided visit come to an end.
