Great Wall of China Day Tour Itinerary

Your guide and driver will come to pick you up at your hotel at 7:30 AM to take you on a full-day excursion to the legendary Great Wall at Mutianyu, 75km northeast of the city. Zigzagging over 6,000 kilometres from east to west along the undulating mountains, the Great Wall was built to hold off tribal invaders from the north. Construction of the earliest sections of the Wall started in the 7th century B.C. A major renovation started with the founding of the Ming Dynasty in 1368 and took 200 years to complete. The wall we see today in Beijing is almost exactly the result of this effort.

If you like, you may hike the Wall for up to four hours. We won’t rush you because unlike so many other local tour operators we won’t take you to tourist stores or factories before or after the visit to the Great Wall. If you are in perfect shape and wish to turn the excursion into a full blown hike, the guide can hike with you all the way to Jiankou section. But this requires you to leave the hotel before 7:00 AM and pay $50 to $100 extra per person depending on the number in your party.

Great Wall of China Day Tour Review

I want to let you know how very pleased we were with our experience at the Great Wall. I coordinated the trip on behalf of 15 of my fellow Duke Global Executive MBA classmates, a well-traveled, educated and generally very discerning group. There wasn’t a single person in the group who was disappointed with our day. Mr. Li Min was a fantastic tour guide. He went out of his way the night before our trip to stop by the hotel and leave a message for our group to start the coordination. The fact that you were willing to pick half the group up at the airport saved us considerable time and headache. Li was prompt, as friendly as could be and very well spoken. Overall the experience was an A+!

Thanks for everything,
