About the tour

If you have wanted to visit the Great Wall of China, this tour is for you. The Great Wall is one of the Seven Wonders of the World, and Mutianyu Great Wall is one of the best sections to experience the majestic feeling the wall inspires. The Mutianyu section was first built in the mid-6th century and it is a favourite of travellers, often being rated as “the best sites in Beijing.” It’s popular for its combination of preserved and natural sections, its rich history, and of course the amazing views. As you walk the steps to the first watchtower (the section has 22 watchtowers!), your guide will start to share the Great Wall’s thousands of years of history, how it was built, its purpose and how it fits with China’s culture. Along the way, you’ll walk in historic soldiers’ footsteps, scan out the same watchtower windows used for scanning for invading armies and take in amazing views of the mountain vistas. Join us for a visit to this iconic site.

Another dream come true! Thanks to Jenny, the team and Amber! I appreciate the time, money and effort invested in this tour. I was excited but this exceeded my expectations!! It is so much better than Youtube, TV, movies etc. It really felt like we were there, and Amber made it better by providing us with lots of interesting information.
