Trip Summary

Chinese Culture, Adventurous, Gourmet, At a Glance, Nature

This tour is perfect for you if you have a few days in Beijing and want to include a night at the Great Wall. We will whisk you off to all of the capital’s must-see sights, including the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, and the Summer Palace, to give you the full Beijing experience. Of course, no visit to Beijing (or China) would be complete without seeing the Great Wall. We will whisk you off to Gubeikou, a quieter, unrestored section of the Wall, where you will spend the night camping among the watchtowers, before traveling back to Beijing in the morning. Food lovers can rest easy in the knowledge that all of the meals we include are fine examples of authentic Chinese food, from hot pot to Peking duck.

What makes this tour special:
Thousands of tourists visit the Great Wall every day, but few actually sleep on it! This tour gives you the chance to get up close and personal with one of the most scenic sections of the Great Wall.
