All Inclusive Mutianyu Great Wall and Summer Palace Private Day Tour

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
Built over 1,400 years ago during the Ming Dynasty, Mutianyu is one of the oldest sections of the Great Wall of China. The UNESCO World Heritage-listed Summer Palace, from the 18th century, contains one of the most famous imperial gardens in the world. Discover both attractions—and explore two millennia of Chinese history—on this unique all inclusive combo tour.
  • Exciting combo tour of Mutianyu Great Wall and Summer Palace
  • Beat the crowds at a less visited section of the wall
  • Photo op at Beijing's famous "Bird's Nest"
  • Local lunch included
  • Explore the Summer Palace, home to Qing rulers
  • Hotel pickup and drop-off
What to Expect
Your day begins with a convenient hotel pickup and scenic drive to the Mutianyu Great Wall, one of the oldest and most rugged sections, covered by picturesque chestnut orchards. Stop for a photo op at Beijing National Stadium, the famous “Bird’s Nest” from the 2008 Summer Olympics. Unlike the tourist-packed Badaling Wall, which is closer to the city, Mutianyu remains less explored, so you’ll have time to leisurely wander the iconic monument without the crowds. You can even climb ancient watchtowers for views of the surrounding countryside. Break for a mouthwatering authentic lunch at a local restaurant. Then get ready to shift gears—and jump over a 1,000 years forward in time—at the 18th-century Summer Palace, known as the best-preserved imperial garden in the world. Enjoy the UNESCO-listed landscaped grounds, once home to powerful Qing rulers, before getting dropped back at your hotel in Beijing.

There is nothing that can be said that others have not said. The Great Wall is a bucket list item and these folks made sure that the trip was as memorable as possible.

This private all-inclusive tour far exceeded my expectations. From the moment Lucy met me at my hotel (with the most respectful driver and spotless & comfortable car) through our bid farewell, I knew I was paired with the perfect host. Lucy shared great contemporary information

We had a great time with our excellent English speaking guide, jimmy, on our tour. Our driver was also great as none of us got carsick which we are very prone to! It was at a nice pace that wasn’t too rushed. Was picked up from our hotel on time and went straight to Mutianyu
