This tour combines two of the most popular destinations north of Beijing into one unforgettable experience.
The Great Wall is a marvel of ancient Chinese engineering, and one of the enduring wonders of the world. The Badaling section is a prime, preserved example of this colossal structure, and you will have the opportunity to climb up either the North or South Face of the Wall. The wall, listed as a World Cultural Heritage by UNESCO, with an average altitude of over 1,000 meters was an ancient military stronghold. The wall is a magnificent creation that will take your breath away.
Visit the Ming Tombs, burial grounds to 13 of the 16 Ming emperors. Explore the largest of the excavated burial sites, the Changling Tomb, which is divided into three separate courtyards. Lunch is included in the tour, along with a shopping spree at the world-renowned Bohua Jade Factory.
You will be picked up from your hotel and taken in an air-conditioned coach for a sightseeing tour of the Great Wall, Ming Tombs and the Spirit Way. An English-speaking tour guide will accompany you on this tour.
The highlights of the tour are:
Stop for lunch in a local restaurant near the Great Wall.
At the end of the tour, you will be dropped back at your hotel in Beijing.
