Private Day Tour to Mutianyu Great Wall and Summer Palace


Visit the Great Wall of China at Mutianyu and the Summer Palace (Yiheyuan), both UNESCO World Heritage sites, on a full-day private tour from Beijing.

The Great Wall of China is one of the most popular attractions in China, yet the Mutianyu section attracts fewer visitors, which means you get a less crowded experience of this world-famous landmark.

Stop for Authentic Chinese lunch in the countryside of Beijing, the restaurant for locals, not for tourists.

Then learn about the history of the majestic Summer Palace as you stroll through its lavish gardens, sprinkled with temples and other eye-catching features.

The price is for One or Two persons. If more than 2 persons, please let me know, I can arrange for a bigger group as well.

Itinerary

Meet your private guide in hotel's lobby at 8:30am in Beijing.

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. Hiking up and down for about 1. 5 hours at the various sections of the Wall, exploring the watch and beacon towers.
Mutianyu is a bit more rugged and slightly less crowded than the more famous Badaling. Over 96% of Mutianyu is covered by trees and orchards, keeping the air fragrant with chestnut blossoms in the spring and fresh all year long.

Stop for Authentic Chinese lunch in the countryside of Beijing, the restaurant for locals not for tourists.

Continue to a well-preserved royal garden: the Summer Palace. Renowned for its beautiful landscape and spectacular architecture, the Summer Palace has been listed in the World Heritage Sites and considered as one of the most classical gardens of the world.

Afterwards, you will return to your hotel in Beijing city center around 5:00pm.
