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. Except for snow and inclement weather, these programs are available all year round. With these programs you can see the most famous sections of the Great Wall, the ones that you have probably scene on postcards, National geographic, and the like. 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.
With this relaxing half-day tour, you can take in what is perhaps the most photographed portion of the Great Wall in a comfort and worry-free way. After being picked up at 8am (or 1pm if you wish) we'll make the drive to Mutianyu, which features some beautifully restored wall. Mutianyu is known for its watchtowers, the way it slopes and glides across the hills, and for its sweeping vistas. Mutianyu (which was featured in the Karate Kid remake) which has played host to world leaders on their China state visit, is a very easy walk, and can be experienced by young and old alike. For the kid in you, there is a thrilling toboggan ride down from the wall which can be done at the end of your walk.
