Today, you will meet your tour guide and driver at the hotel lobby at around 08:00 am. After a warming greeting, you will take a comfortable car ride heading to the Mutianyu Great Wall to start your Great Wall and Summer Palace tour. It takes about 1.5 hours. During the time, your guide will introduce you as much as possible the information about the Beijing city and the Great Wall
Upon arrival at the Mutianyu Great Wall, we will arrange a round-way cable car for you to go up and down the Wall, to avoid 500 mountain steps. You will have more than 2 hours on the Great Wall to appreciate the magnificent scenery and take amazing photos. Instead of the cable car, we can also arrange for you to take the chairlift up and toboggan down the Wall with no any extra fare, which are more popular among Young people. You could make a decision when you arrive and your guide will help you make proper arrangements.
We will spend the whole morning on this former military fortification. Lunch is on your own and your guide will provide advice. In the afternoon, we drive back to the downtown Beijing to take a leisurely visit to the Summer Palace
, where you will enjoy the natural beauty of the lake, hill, unique bridge, long gallery, as well as some classic royal buildings. A Kunming Lake boat ride will be specially arranged for you. Instead of the Summer Palace, we also have another choice for you. That is to tour the traditional Hutongs
by rickshaw and visit the residential courtyards, to immerse yourself in the local culture. Whichever you choose, your guide will ensure a pleasant experience. Finally, your Great Wall and Summer Palace day trip concludes, and your guide and driver will take you back to the hotel. Hope you enjoy travelling with us! Thank you.
