Highlights
Combine three top Beijing-area attractions in a single day tour
Enjoy a skip-the-line admission ticket to the often-crowded Forbidden City
Cable car ride to the top of the Great Wall of China saves time
Round-trip transport, lunch, and all admission tickets are included for a hassle-free experience
What to expect
Begin your tour with convenient early-morning hotel pickup. Board the comfortable vehicle and head straight for Tiananmen Square. Learn about the area’s history, take photos in front of Chairman Mao’s Mausoleum, and visit the Gate of Heavenly Peace. From here, enter the Forbidden City, skipping the long entry line and proceeding directly inside. Take in the traditional Chinese architecture, and hear all about the ancient Chinese emperors who lived here. Rather than visit all 9,999 rooms, your guide has carefully selected 10 to best represent the palace and maximize your experience. Leave Beijing for the Mutianyu section of the Great Wall of China, where you’ll board the time-saving cable car up to the top. Spend about two hours hiking between the 14th and 23rd watchtowers while your guide sheds light on the wall's history and significance. Relax and rest on the ride back to Beijing for hotel drop-off.

Good comprehensive tour of forbidden city and great wall
Overall a good day tour. Our guide William picked us up with his driver at our hotel, and we went directly to Tiananmen Square. We had a private driver and we were the only ones on the tour, so we never needed to wait for parking or for anybody else. This was very convenient and worth the expense, as car travel is very time consuming in Beijing.

After Tiananmen Square, we walked directly to the Forbidden City. Then our driver picked us up and we had lunch on the way to the Great Wall (fee not included). It took 2 hours to get back from the wall to the hotel. All the experience was smooth save for the usual Beijing traffic.

William is a full time tour guide, so he was very knowledgeable about the history of China and relevant events which happened at the tour destinations. He even drew out a detailed map for us by hand to show the location of the Great Wall and the reason why it was built at that latitude. William also said he specializes in foreign tours, which makes sense because his English was good.

For any tour in general, especially in countries where English is not the first language, I recommend you pick a tour agency which employs full time rather than part time tour guides, as I have found the quality of the tours to be much better.

Note that the Forbidden City and Great Wall are not wheelchair friendly. Expect a decent amount of uphill walking on the Great Wall if you wish to visit tower 20 (recommended).

Overall a positive experience worth the time and money. However I will likely not tour these locations again in the near future, because I think once is enough for these types of historical tours.

Just do it!
Jan 2020 • Solo
We had an amazing day with enough time at the Great Wall to go from one end to the other end and back. Probably not everyone will come so far, but you can try.
The weather was brilliant, we had a perfect view and the wall is really a life goal everyone should have seen this.
Our guide Tom was very kind and he spoke english very well.
What also was very important to me: We didn't have to buy anything.
If you have the time just do it. This tour is worth every penny!

Great tour with Tom, highly recommend
We had a great tour with Tom to the forbidden city & Great Wall at Mutianyu. Tom was really knowledgable and a great tour guide, he knew lots about the history and went out of his way to help us learn. Lunch was delicious, especially the di San Xian which is now my new favourite! Thankyou Tom for a wonderful day! Sarah & Chris from London.

Our tour guide, Cactus, really showed us a great time. We had limited time in Beijing and managed to check off everything we wanted to see in one day. We felt we had plenty of time at each site and Cactus gave us great historical context for everywhere, as well as great places to take photos on the wall. Also loved the restaurant she took us to between the Forbidden City and the wall. Highly recommend both the tour and guide!

I loved this tour!
Jan 2020 • Solo
Tom was an excellent tour guide. The entire day was smooth from pickup to drop off. He was knowledgeable about the Forbidden City and the history of the Great Wall. I used this day as a side trip when I was in China for work. It was the best part of the entire trip. It was me and four other people so the group was not big and there were other solo travelers. Tom also contacted me the next morning to give me a heads up that because it snowed the night before I would want to head out earlier than I had planned for the train station!

Book NOW! Ask for Cactus.
Jan 2020 • Friends
If you’re considering another company or excursion, don’t bother. This was by far the simplest, most convenient and educational day trip I’ve even been on. Not to mention, it was lots of fun!! I only had 24 hours to spend in Beijing and booking this tour was the smartest thing I could have ever done. From pick-up at my hotel, to drop-off at the train station, everything went smoothly. Cactus, my tour guide, had impeccable English, wealth of knowledge of Chinese history, world events and local culture. Both her and the driver knew the best spots to take pictures, avoid crowds, & routes to beat traffic from point A to point B. Not to mention, we stopped at the cutest traditional restaurant for lunch. (The food was BEYOND amazing.) Cactus also went ABOVE and beyond to ensure I made it back to Shanghai without any hiccups. If you think you can visit these locations alone, without a native - think again!

Amazing private tour for family with small kids.
Dec 2019 • Family
We are a family of four (3 years old and 8 month old). You could say it is crazy to go to the Great Wall and Forbidden City with small kids during winter but we managed to do everything with Cactus, our tour guide, great support. Not only she is very knowledgeable but also very understanding and able to adapt itinerary according to the needs of the family. She looked after our daughter whenever she was walking unaware of the slippery pathways. She would hold her hand if necessary and took lovely pictures of our family. Couldn’t be more grateful for having her as our tour guide.

Great one day tour with Sophia
For first timers in Beijing, I highly recommend joining a group tour or any tour because of the city's rich history, language barrier, and ease.

We were picked up from our hotel bright and early, and after picking up all the parties, we went to Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square.

We were handed a headset but the weather was so cold that the headset ran out of battery. Sophia did great explaining to the group that none of us needed it in the end. I particularly like how Sophia explained the different gates and history and meaning behind each landmark. This made the trip so much more meaningful and interesting.

After that, we hop into the van and went straight to Mutianyu to see the Great Wall of China. Before going up, we had a lunch at a restaurant of their choosing and it was ok.

We were given 2 options to go up the wall, the toboggan way or the gondola way. For the folks seeking for a little adventure, do choose the toboggan way.

We were dropped off safely to our hotel.

Overall, this is a great tour and I particularly appreciated the details and how the entire tour was composed.
