All Inclusive Private Day Tour to Mutianyu Great Wall and Summer Palace
From US$99.00

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.

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.

Can’t help you there I’m sorry. I visited a month ago when the weather was nice. I suggest you reach out to Qing Directly to get advice.

My guess is yes. But to be sure you would need to ask the company. We were between the 2nd and 3rd rings. Since it’s a private tour, they only have you to pick up
