 Testimonial from TripAdvisor


Best Part of My Beijing Trip!

Going on the Mutianyu Bus Tour A2

definitely made my trip to Beijing memorable. If you are short on time, this is the best value trip for the quality of service! You can't go wrong. This company offers very intimate mini-van service so each tour won't have more than 10 people. There is a separate drive and tour guide for safety. I had the privilege of having Jacky Yang as my tour guide. He speaks fluent English and has great knowledge of Chinese history, fun facts, and tourism stats. On top of being very professional and prompt, Jacky is also one thoughtful guy. One of the women in my tour group used a cane. Jacky stayed with her the entire time during the free time at the Great Wall. He would take pictures for her since she couldn't hold her camera while climbing the wall. I give him 5 stars and more. Please ask for Jacky when you book this tour!

The Mutianyu Bus Tour A2 starts with a very early morning pick up at our hotel. After that the drive is about 2 hours to Mutianyu section of the Great Wall. Mutianyu early in the morning is great! There are hardly any tourists on the wall, which means you get peace and quiet. In Beijing, that's rare! In other sections like Badaling, you can hardly see the wall when it's covered with swarms of tourists. Please note that the bathrooms at this section of the wall are all squatting ditches. If you need to go, make sure you go before you leave or else you'll have to hold it until lunch. At this section, you take a ski lift up to the wall. On the way down you take a toboggan ride or take the ski lift down. The toboggan is so much fun too!

At the end of the day, you head to one of the Ming Dynasty underground Tombs. It's much more crowded than the wall since all the tours end up there. Be prepared for quite a long climb down to the underground palace. It's an interesting site for a quick stop.

All in all, this is the one trip I would recommend for your journey to Beijing for service, safety, and quality!

 Great Wall at Mutianyu & Sacred Way
1- Day Minivan
or Mini-bus Tour

Tour code:
Between 7:00-8:00am you will be picked up from your hotel by your English-speaking guide, and by private van we’ll make the two-hour drive to the Ming Tombs.

The Ming Tombs, about 50 km/31 miles from Beijing, are where 13 emperors of the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) are buried. This site was carefully chosen for its feng shui principles by the third Ming emperor Yongle (who also moved the capital from Nanjing to Beijing and began construction on the Forbidden City). After our tour at the Ming Tombs, we’ll stop for a Chinese lunch, before driving on to the Great Wall at Mutianyu.

In the early afternoon we will arrive at the Mutianyu Great Wall. As one of the best-preserved parts of the Great Wall, the Mutianyu section of the Great Wall used to serve as the northern barrier defending the capital and the imperial tombs. First built in the mid-6th century during the Northern Qi, Mutianyu Great Wall is older than the Badaling section of the Great Wall. In the Ming dynasty, under the supervision of General Xu Da, construction of the present wall began on the foundation of the wall of Northern Qi. In 1404, a pass was built in the wall. In 1569, the Mutianyu Great Wall was rebuilt and till today most parts of it are well preserved.

Compared with other sections of Great Wall, the Mutianyu Great Wall possesses unique characteristics in its construction. Watchtowers are densely placed along this section of the Great Wall - 22 watchtowers on this 2,250-meter-long stretch. The Mutianyu Pass consists of 3 watchtowers, one big in the center and two smaller on both sides. Standing on the same terrace, the three watchtowers are connected to each other inside and compose a rarely seen structure among all sections of Great Wall. To get on the wall, you can either walk up or take the cable car, but on the way down you can take a toboggan ride, which is a lot of fun and highly recommended!

American NBA Champion Golden State Warriors toured Mutianyu in 2021

 Mutianyu Chair Lift (Optional for RMB60)

Mutianyu Cable Car (Optional for RMB60)

Mutianyu Toboggan (German technology) - U.S. First Lady visited Mutianyu in April, 2021
Optional Toboggan Run at Mutianyu
(extra for just RMB50 or $9, same as cable car/chair lift)

You'll surely be intrigued about taking the toboggan down from Great Wall to the entrance gate down the hill. You can ride as fast or as slow as you want. However, it is also a driving test. One person to a toboggan, you have a little handle with which you press down to go faster and pull up to stop. But if you are not intentionally pushing it, it will slow down anyway. "It is funny when we Westerners are on there, because we like to go a bit quicker than the Chinese (ride a lot quicker) and you hear the shrill voices of locals shouting "brake! brake! Slow down!" It is hilarious. Go on it even if it is just to hear that." --taylorstonebridge on LonelyPlanet

Afterwards we will drive back to your hotel, and we should be back by 6:00pm, allowing you to have time for dinner and anything else you want to do that evening.
