Detailed Itinerary
Day 01: Tiananmen Square - Forbidden City - Mutianyu Great Wall - Bird's Nest
Welcome to join our Beijing group tour for 2 days. In the morning, our guide and driver will pick you up at your hotel lobby. After your group members gather together, we will directly drive to Tiananmen Square, the largest city square in the world and the important center of political activities in China. After a walk at the square, we will go to visit the Forbidden City.

Then we will take a 2-hour drive to arrive at the Mutianyu Great Wall. To save you more time on the wall and to avoid the tourist food eateries near the site, we leave the lunch on your own, but our guide is ready to assist. You may have some fast food like Subway, Burger King or simple Chinese meal as your lunch, or if you want, you may buy some take-away food and have a picnic on the wall. Usually, it costs about US$7 per person for the lunch.

Later we will visit the Mutianyu Great Wall. Winding up and down along the tops of steep continuous mountains, it is well preserved and fully radiates the grandeur of the Great Wall. Also, the high vegetation coverage makes the surrounding landscape enchanting at all seasons.

In the morning, our guide and driver will pick you up from your hotel on time and continue our Beijing group tour to the Temple of Heaven. It is the largest royal ceremonial building groups in China.

Then we will take a drive to Jiangshan Park, used to be a royal garden of the Ming and Qing dynasties (1368 - 1912). On the top of Jingshan Hill, there is a pavilion called Wanchunting, which is the best place to have a panoramic view of the Forbidden City. To reach the pavilion, we need to climb over 100 steps, which takes about 10 to 15 minutes. Don’t miss the grand view on the top if you can make it.

Three ways going up and down the Mutianyu Great Wall
Map of Mutianyu Great Wall
  • On Foot: Hiking and climbing the wall on foot is not difficult for most visitors. The mountain road reaching to the watchtowers has approximately 500 steps which takes about half an hour to finish. There are two entrances for hiking leading to No. 6, No. 8 and No. 10 watchtowers on the wall.
  • Cable Car: Going up and down the wall by cable car is a much easier way. A round-trip ticket is more cost-effective. A chair lift up and a luge sliding down is also a good choice. Price reference: CNY120/US$17 for a round trip, CNY100/US$14 for a single way. You have flexibilities to choose when you arrive at the wall and our guide will help you purchase the tickets if you need.
  • Go Up by Foot & Down by Cable Car or Luge: You can take a cable car at No. 14 Watchtower or a luge at No. 6 Watchtower.

    We had interesting activities such as taking a rickshaw to visit Beijing Hutong and strolling around the Houhai Lake. The boat riding in the Summer Palace was also funny. Overall, the 2 days Beijing mini group tour to the Forbidden City was worthy and satisfactory! I really recommend TCG to anyone who wants to visit China.

    I had an enjoyable trip with my father in Beijing. Thanks to the in-depth commentary of our guide, we learned a lot about Beijing attractions. Magnificent Forbidden City, splendid Mutianyu Great Wall and luring Temple of Heaven made us appreciate special architecture with Chinese features and charming natural landscape. But there are too many tourists...
