Trip Map


Enjoy a first-rate experience of China's Great Wall with a local guide.

Imagine China's Great Wall in all its former glory and tread the elevated highway as it stands today. Dating back 2,000 years, the wall was originally made of compacted earth and built to keep out marauding nomads from the north. Gradually the structure has deteriorated and some sections have turned to dust. But over the subsequent dynasties, several strategic sections have been rebuilt and reinforced. Travel at a leisurely pace with a local guide and picnic amid the breathtaking scenery. Complemented with time in Beijing, this Great Wall adventure is a great way to experience one of the most iconic parts of the world and see imperial China from another perspective.
