All Inclusive Mutianyu Great Wall and Summer Palace Private Day Tour
From US$84,20

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.

Great Wall+ Summer Palace with Clare

Great day with private driver and guide Clare through Summer Palace and Great wall including a typical Chinese lunch . Very good day, no queuing, great explanations, easy discussions with Clare. It was very interesting and good fun. I definitely recommend that tour. Enjoy!

Wonderful day trip to Great Wall at Mutianyu

Although we had paid for a group tour, my wife and I ended up being the only ones on it, so we got a private tour at group tour rates! As a result, we drove around in a private car instead of a mini van/shuttle,...More

Excellent Tour and a Great Guide

What an excellent tour to Mutianyu! Vivien our guide was a great tour guide. She had called us the night before suggesting that we leave for Mutianyu no later than 7:30am in order not to be caught in all the traffic jam and human jam....More

Jimmy The Great!

Punctuality! That’s what I am a stickler for and Jimmy was ready and waiting for us with a smile and exuberant demeanor in the hotel lobby. He led us to the car, where Kai, the driver, was waiting. We left at 8a.m., as Jimmy said...More
