Laolongtou Great Wall of China  on the Bohai SeaGreat Wall Tours

A tour to the Great Wall of China to any of the many sections of the Ming Dynasty Great Wall near Beijing is a must while in China. There is really no need for much introduction to the Great Wall itself; it is quite simply one of the greatest projects ever built by human hands. There are several sections open to the public in the Greater Beijing area, and Beijing Discovery Tours can take you to each of them. These are all simply sample tours to give you an idea of what to do - destinations and times can be changed, limited only by your imagination and the logistics of traveling to each place that you would like to visit. You can even spend the night sleeping on top of the Great Wall if you would like! Just let us know what you would like to do and where you would prefer to stay, then we can give you an exact quote for your Great Wall tour. As with all of our tours, our Great Wall tours are private (just you and your chosen traveling companions) and include your personal English-speaking tour guide and comfortable private transportation. Prices may vary a bit, depending on the current exchange rate and whether it is peak or off season. Please contact us at info@beijingdiscoverytours.com and we can give you an exact quotation or we can customize a Great Wall tour for you or your group that fits your schedule and what you want to see.

Badaling section of the Great Wall of China Badaling Great Wall

One of the closest sections to Beijing and the most heavily rebuilt, it is still a spectacular sight and a great example of the magnificence of the entire Great Wall and a good place to go for your first Great Wall tour.

Generally we recommend Juyongguan rather than Badaling as a less crowded alternative.

Simatai Great Wall

Simatai Great WallSimatai is one of the Great Wall’s most spectacular locations, with the Wall running along steep ridges that will have you wondering how they ever built the thing in the first place. Great views of ancient watchtowers and the surrounding countryside (a camera is a must), but be prepared for a workout as some of the climbing is very steep and physically demanding. Parts of Simatai have been recently restored but large sections still lie in their original state. Also usually less crowded than Badaling and Mutianyu. Several watchtowers can be climbed upon for the more adventurous (and if no guards are looking). There is also a cable car here that costs around 60 CNY (US$10), this is recommended for most people (unless you’re fairly physically fit) as the climb just to reach the Great Wall is quite demanding. There is also a “zipline” that can give you a thrilling ride over the reservoir back down to the base point. Vendors along the higher points of the Wall sell cold water and the coldest cans of beer you’ll ever find in China during the summer, well worth the 5 CNY (US$0.84) per can (don’t forget to bargain.)

 

#GW6 Full Day Simatai Great Wall Exploring Tour

Your personal tour guide will pick you up around 8 a.m. for the 2+ hour trip to Simatai. Great but moderately difficult hiking can be found no matter which way you go once you have climbed the hill to reach the Great Wall itself. We’ll have you back at your hotel around 5:30 p.m. Includes your English-speaking tour guide, lunch, entrance fee and a private vehicle with a professional driver.

Cost: 1 person: 1295 CNY / US$217; 2 people: 840 CNY / US$140 per person; 3 people: 815 CNY / US$136 per person; 4 - 5 people: 775 CNY / US$130 per person; 6 - 9 people: 655 CNY / US$110 per person; 10+ people: 605 CNY / US$101 per person.
