Detailed Itinerary
Day 01: Tiananmen Square - Forbidden City - Mutianyu Great Wall - Bird's Nest
Welcome to join our Mutianyu Great Wall small group tour. In the morning, our guide and driver will pick you up at your hotel lobby to start your first day trip. 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. For over 5 centuries, it is the largest royal palace complex in the world which has left us with many valuable cultural and historical heritages. As you walk around the grand palaces, you will enjoy its gorgeous ornaments and learn how the ancient Chinese emperors lived in the past.

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.

    Generally, the 2 days Beijing tour was good. The Forbidden City and Mutianyu Great Wall were splendid and worth visiting. The Summer Palace on our second day’s schedule had a luring landscape. But, it was rainy in the afternoon, so we had no chance to take a boat. Overall, it was a pleasant tour. Tina was calm and had a high adapting ability. Very thankful for her dedicated work!

    The guide Sara was very excellent and owned strong professional skills. We were so lucky to meet a nice guide on the Beijing 2 days mini-group tour. Her excellent introduction to those spots deeply attracted us and even if other tourists in other groups. The two days trip was short, but we had visited highlights of Beijing, full and meaningful. Thanks for the high quality of service at TCG. This company would certainly be my choice for the trip!

    This 2 days Beijing tour gave us a wonderful experience. We had seen the pictures of Beijing spots on the Internet before and this true travel brought us intuitive feelings. Those attractions all had magnificent architecture and their own styles. From our guide Sara, we knew many interesting stories about them and enriched our knowledge. Sara was very enthusiastic! The weather was very hot and she bought us some bottles of iced Sprite, so nice! If you want to visit Beijing, I recommend you to choose TCG and the guide Sara. I believe your trip would be very happy! (ಡωಡ) ... More

    The 2 days Beijing tour had a tight itinerary, but we had a pleasant time. The guide explained every spot in detail and we learned the history, culture, and customs about Beijing from our knowledgeable guide. We also praised the grand architecture and splendid landscape of those spots like Forbidden City and Mutianyu Great Wall… The trip was wonderful in general.
