Tour details

Visit the Great Wall of China and the Ming tombs near the great wall on this one day tour. Book this tour to explore the historical and fascinating sites.


Your English speaking tour guide and private vehicle will meet you in your hotel's lobby at 8:30am. On the way to The Mutianyu Great Wall, if traffic allows, stop to photograph the iconic "Bird's Nest"– the Beijing National Stadium–host to many spectacular events of the 2008 Summer Olympics.

Once arrive at the The Mutianyu Great Wall, you’ll enjoy a less hurried experience and take time to marvel at this wondrous structure and the surrounding hillsides that look north toward Mongolia.The Great Wall at Mutianyu was built and restored in the early Ming Dynasty (1368 – 1644), on the remnants of a Wall originally built in the Northern Qi Dynasty (550-577). Reconstruction took place under the supervision of Xu Da, one of the founding generals of the Ming Dynasty, who was responsible for building a Wall from Shanhaiguan in the east to as far as Mutianyu. The Ming pass at Mutianyu was officially proclaimed in 1404, where is would serve as an important symbol of protection from marauding nomads to the north. Have a delicious Chinese lunch in the local restaurant.

Then Visit the Ming tombs -- Dingling. It will take you about 40 minutes to arrive at Dingling. Dingling was built in 1590. Emperor Shen Zong and the empress were buried there in 1620. After it was built, the underground palace was covered with deep soil. The people in charge of the tomb construction and later burial of the imperials erected the tablet as a sign for relocating the underground palace when needed. Your Tour will end at 6:00 pm with the drop off back to your hotel
