Our 1-day Great Wall hiking programs is our bread and butter and is what made us famous. With our 1-day programs you can see the best of the Great Wall in style and comfort, and which will also allow you to be back in Beijing by nightfall. You can venture across the dramatic ruins of Jiankou, walk through the graceful watchtowers of Mutianyu, visit the relatively tourist-free sections of Huanghuacheng and Xishuiyu, or take the challenge of our most popular Great Wall trip, the hike between Gubeikou and Jinshanling, which gives you the full Great Wall experience, from tastefully restored watchtowers and brick to the spectacular real “Great Wall” in its unrestored splendor. Your travel guides are fully licensed to provide stimulating and thoughtful tours for hikers to the Great Wall, and are with you throughout your trip, explaining the legends behind the wall, from sections used to resist the Mongols to those that repelled the Japanese, allowing you to have a fun, informative, and safe trip.
If you're short on time and want to experience the absolute best of Beijing and the Great Wall, then this tour is a perfect fit. After a morning pick-up we'll start our day with a tour of the Forbidden City, which is probably the most famed attraction in Beijing (and possibly all of China). After a few hours touring we'll drive out to the Great Wall at Jinshanling where we'll begin our hike. On this hike you'll see watchtowers, stately brickwork, dramatic ruins, and awe-inspiring views. To top it all off you'll get to be on the Great Wall during the sunset, giving you a once-in-a-lifetime moment that can only be had on the Great Wall.
