Climb the Great Wall of China and descend into the depths of the Ming Dynasty Tombs with this private guided tour!

Your guide will pick you up from your hotel and take you to discover the Ming Dynasty Tombs. You will visit the tomb of Emperor Yongle, the first Chinese emperor to have ruled from Beijing.

After your visit to the Ming Dynasty Tombs, you will have lunch in a restaurant and taste some traditional Beijing specialities.

Next, head towards to the Great Wall of China, either to Badaling or Mutianyu.

If you choose to go to Badaling you will see the most well known section of the Great Wall, which extends over nearly 80 kilometers (49 miles). If you choose to go to Mutianyu, you will visit a more ancient part of the wall with miradors and parapets, situated right in the heart of the forest.

Climb the Great Wall and take a walk along this man-made structure that's visible from space!

On your return journey, you will be able to make a stop-off near the Olympic Village to take photos.

  • Très bonne prestation: Bien gérée logistiquement parlant -> on part tôt ce qui permet, s'il n'y a pas trop de bouchons, d'arriver avant le flux de touristes pour la visite de la muraille; le fait de déjeuner tôt permet d'attaquer la visite des tombeaux Ming avant l'arrivée des touristes l'après-midi. Transport confortable et sécurisant. Pas de détours par des commerçants (un vrai plus comparé à d'autres prestations). Exposé du guide très intéressant. Des petits "plus gratuits": détour par le site olympique au retour et cérémonie du thé dans un établissement réputé A améliorer: Coût de la prestation un peu élevé même si la qualité est là (la montée par le cable-car à la muraille pourrait déjà être incluse dans le prix). Accent anglais du guide.
