Your guide and driver will pick you up at your hotel around 7:00 a.m. Pick up times are usually between 7:00 to 8:00 in the morning, but might change according to your hotel location or traffic.

After all guests were picked up from hotels, you will be driven directly to the Mutianyu section of the Great Wall. It's about one hour and a half from the center of Beijing. Upon arrival, you may choose to take the cable car or chair lift up the Wall (not included in the tour price) or hike your way up. Enjoy around 2 hours of sightseeing and picture taking in the area. For the adventures ones - don't miss the Toboggans slides on the way down! Mutianyu is one of the best-preserved sections of the wall and not too crowded either, which makes it a great experience!
Our advice: wear comfortable shoes and make sure to bring a hat or an umbrella/rain coat according to the weather, as there is no shade or cover on the wall. You will have lunch at a local restaurant and then sent back to downtown Beijing for drop-off at your hotel. Explore other ways of reaching the Great Wall here.
