    The guide and driver will pick you up at the hotel in the center of the city at 8:00am, it takes about 1.5hours from the center of the city to the Mutianyu Great Wall.

    You will have your choice of taking the cable car or chair lift up at the great wall and spend a leisurely 1 to 2 hours hiking up and down the Wall. You then have the option of the toboggan ride back down or simply return the way you came with cable car.

    (Noted: The chairlift up and toboggan down at the great wall or cable car up and cable car down at the great wall is included. If you choose to take the cable car up and toboggan down at the great wall, you need to pay 60CNY per person extra)

    We will stop at the local restaurant for lunch if you wanted after visiting the Great Wall. It takes about 1.5hours from the Mutianyu Great Wall to the Summer Palace.

    You can cover a lot of ground in two days. My advice would be to go with a guide as you will save a lot of time that way. We liked Tours with Jessie a lot and would recommend them for some advanced planning!
