The view at Mutianyu Great Wall was great. Had a wonderful time going up by chair lift and down by toboggan. It was not crowded at all during our visit giving us more opportunity to take nice pictures,

It was great walking on that ancient structure and thinking about the people who built it and guarded it. The view was outstanding. One could see for miles. It is a very steep slope walking to the cable car. (I am glad for the cable...More

Our guide Susie made sure we avoided long queues and provided all the information we needed . China Highlights really know how to find good guides.

We left Beijing at 7am and had a lovely hour or so in all but complete solitude 'til the crowds rolled in. The chairlift to the wall and bobsled back was great fun too!

Actually we booked a trip via tripadvisor and found a perfect option for 45€ incl. entrance fee and lunch - but no annoying stops at jade or tea shops. We had a pretty busy weekend as we were travelling on April 30th in the middle...More

Planning to visit great wall with my wife and 2 & half year old son. How can we reach to Mutianyu great wall and come back from city using public transport? How much time it will take to go and the cost? I think cable car up and down is ok? Can I take toboggan ride with my kid for coming down? Thanks in advance for suggestion.

I was there last week. Your son would need to sit between your legs - up to you whether you want to do it. I felt at 13 months my son was a bit too small and wriggly so walked him down instead in a kiddie backpack. The... More

Hello. We are 2 women aged 27 and 61 traveling from the Wangfujing area to the Mutianyu section of the Great Wall and would appreciate some recommendations for a round trip with a private driver. Also, do we pay the driver after the day has ended as I'm worried about being stranded at the wall!

Hello, we are 2 adults and 2 kids aged 7 and 9. Want to book a tour to Mutianyu to do cable car / luge down. Early morning trip is preferable. Not really interested in shopping or other side trips as kids will get tired. Can you recommend an affordable tour company, or should we contempoate doing it on our own in a taxi? thanks!

We booked a one day tour from our hotel (The Double Happiness). There were about 10 or 12 people on the minibus. They didn't stop at any shops or anything but took us straight to the wall. The driver showed us where to... More
