This tour takes you to three historically important sights outside Beijing's bustling city center.

Mutianyu is a section of the Great Wall known for its fabulous views and the toboggan that you can take back down the mountainside!

We will make two stops at the Ming Tombs; the first is the underground tomb of the Wanli Emperor (the only Ming tomb to have been excavated,) and the other is the ‘Sacred Way,’ a pathway lined with carved statues of animals and emperors.

What makes this tour special:
You will be served lunch at a local restaurant. You can choose from a variety of Chinese dishes with or without meat, or you can try their specialty – freshly caught trout.
