Full description
Climb aboard a bus that departs from downtown Beijing and travel directly to the Mutianyu Great Wall, saving you time and money. On the journey, your English-speaking tour guide will give you an introduction to the history of Great Wall.  Follow your guide from the parking lot to take a shuttle to the admission gate. Arrive at the site allowing you 4–5 hours of free time to climb up to the 20th Watchtower at your own pace. Choose the option to include a round-way cable car to get to tower 14 from where you can enjoy the most beautiful views. Or select the guided hiking option if you would like a professional expert to accompany you in a small group to the cable car. In this option, your guide will explain interesting stories about the wall, and help you find the best photo spots along the route. This 40-minute guided experience will give you a deeper knowledge and appreciation for this impressive construction. You can also choose to explore Mutianyu in a more adventurous way; hike to a secret beacon with your expert guide, which allows you to escape the crowds to an area that is only known to locals. Reach the highest beacon via this unique and exclusive route, then hike back down via the regular route.  Upon exiting the Great Wall, take the shuttle back to the parking lot. After hiking through the magnificent scenery, enjoy a buffet with Eastern and Western food. The tour will then head back to Beijing.

I had a great day on Chinese Great Wall. I was lucky to have a guide whose name was Claire, she was helpful, kind and happy person. It was easy to communicate with her. Started from the meeting point in Beijing and throughout all the way everything was on high level, was well-organized. I definitely recommend to take tour of this company. Great job MUBUS team and many thanks!

Roy was an excellent guide and very good at managing a large crowd of tourists. His instructions were clear as he’s fluent in English. I really enjoyed the tour as he briefly explained the history of the wall and materials used to glue them together. Buffet was sumptuous, lots of veggies. No shopping stops which I appreciated so the whole time was dedicated in exploring the walls and other attractions like cable car and toboggan. This tour is highly recommended.

Worthy! Check carefully distance to meeting point! Book lunch, cable car etc you can buy still on the bus or at arrival. We did a mistake and than we were like 30 min late! They were very polite and gave us a bit of time and we really made it in the very last minute! Cable car is 120 Guide was cool, explained everything really good and patient. The lunch was really cool with a lot of local food you share on the round table. And the nicest, it were people from all over the world!
