Our guide will pick you up in the lobby of your hotel in the morning at the appointed time. After a 2-hour drive, you will arrive at the Mutianyu Great Wall, which is mostly built on steep cliffs, and is one of the best-preserved parts of China's Great Wall. It is known for its closely-spaced watchtowers and beautiful natural scenery. We will go up to and down from the Mutianyu Great Wall by cable car. If you want to descend from the Great Wall by slideway, please tell your guide in advance and she/he will be very glad to arrange it for you. 

At noon, you will arrange your lunch for yourself. Our guide can give you some recommendations based on your preferences. After lunch, we will drive to Gubei Water Town located at the foot of the Simatai Great Wall. It is a charming antique town by the river with ancient houses, archways, towers and bridges everywhere. Upon arrival, our guide will help you check-in at the hotel. Then you can have a good rest in your room or explore the town. Dinner is by your own arrangement, and we suggest you choose a restaurant with a good view so you can enjoy the majestic Simatai Great Wall and delicious food at the same time.

Later our guide will pick you up from the hotel at around 7:00pm for a one-hour Simatai Great Wall night tour. Here, too, we go up to and down from the Great Wall by cable car. The Simatai Great Wall, built on mountain ridges, is also one of the best-preserved parts of ancient China's Great Wall where you can view the original Great Wall scenery. It is also the only Great Wall section that is open to visitors at night. From the Wall you may find just the right spot to appreciate the sunset and look at the night scene over Gubei Water Town with its lights on.
