4.6 / 5 total 19 reviews
Duration: 8 hours
Product code: 2868
Overview

At approx. 8:30 am, your tour guide and driver will pick you up from your centrally located Beijing hotel lobby. Travel with your guide in a comfortable private vehicle to your first stop, the Ming Tombs Scenic Area, where lie the mausoleums of thirteen emperors of the Ming Dynasty (1368 - 1644).

You will visit the Dingling Tomb, the mausoleum of the thirteenth emperor, Zhu Yijun and his two empresses. The whole tomb is divided into two parts: aboveground and underground. On the ground, it consists of a stone bridge, a-stele pavilion and other accessories. The highlight is the stone Underground Palace, which was discovered between 1956 and 1958 and had plenty of precious relics unearthed. On the way, you will stop and see the full view of the Bird's Nest if time permits.

After having lunch at a local restaurant, you will proceed to the Mutianyu Great Wall located in Huairou district, about 80 km north from downtown Beijing. Mutianyu Section works as the northern barrier defending the capital and the imperial tombs, it is less crowded and known for its beautiful surroundings with vegetation, green pines and cypresses covering 90 percent of the area. Hike up the Great Wall along the stone steps, enjoy the beautiful scenery and the tensely distributed Watchtowers. Cable car and Toboggan are optional at your own expense.

AMAZING! This is something that you only can experience once in a lifetime. It is truly spectacular! It was tough walking but it was nice that our guide took us to a less busy area of the wall. The Ming tombs were also awesome. You also get picked up and dropped back to your hotel on this tour.

I had planned a trip to Beijing with my wife for a long time, and had done some research on different tours that we could do. I noticed that many of the tours had central pick up locations, but this one thankfully picked us up from our hotel. It was a good tour overall and we planned another tour with this company for the following day.

Our tour guide, picked us up from our hotel and took us directly to the Dingling Tomb before continuing to the Mutianyu section of the Great Wall. We took the lift up and the toboggan down. We were able to get amazing pictures. We then went to lunch at a restaurant where the food was very good. We would highly recommend this tour company.

We were only in Beijing for 2 days and booked this tour as we wanted to see the Great Wall. I am so glad we did as we would never have learned so much if we had of done it by ourselves. I have no problem recommending this tour and give it 5 stars.

It was a beautiful sunny day when we went, so we got lots of great photos. The Ming Tombs were also great. We had a great guide who was able to answer all of our questions. I would recommend this trip to anyone who would like to see the Great Wall but is a bit short on time in Beijing.

The tour was awesome. The tombs were good, but the wall was exceptional. Our guide provided a lot of detailed history about the wall which I found very interesting. We went for local Chinese lunch as well.

As I have certain health issues I wanted to make sure that I would be able to manage the Great Wall. Our guide really looked after me. I took the cable car and could stroll around at my leisure, My husband and I want to thank this company for being so caring.

Great team to work with and so easy to book online. The tour was perfect! Our guide met us in our hotel lobby, and our driver was waiting for us out front. The driver was very friendly, and did a great job driving through the city and surrounding area. There are no words to describe the Great Wall, the views are stunning, especially on a good day. It was slightly misty when we went which for me, added to the magical atmosphere of the site. The Dingling Tomb was interesting and we enjoyed it, but the Wall…we will never forget it. Thank you for this tour and for making our day special.
