Wander the Great Wall Itinerary
Join a local guide for a unique experience of China's Great Wall. Visit Beijing and take the time to explore the Great Wall and discover its rich history.
Day 1 Beijing
Arrive in China's enigmatic capital and use free time to explore this sprawling city. Find a bargain at the wonderful silk markets, see Beijing's vibrant hutongs by rickshaw or try some piping-hot dumplings.
ACCOM: Hotel - 1
Days 2-3 Great Wall
Stretching over 6,000 km, the Great Wall is an almost unbelievable feat of ancient engineering and a lasting reminder of Chinese imperial history. Hike with a local guide through remote areas and past crumbling staircases and watchtowers overgrown with vegetation. In places, the Great Wall zigzags up inclines and straddles peaks like a suspension bridge, offering a chance to gaze out to mountain ranges in the distance.
ACCOM: Guesthouse - 2
Days 4-5 Beijing
Conquer the last part of the world's longest fortification and enjoy a picnic lunch on the wall before heading back to Beijing. Once in the city, why not seek out a restaurant offering Peking duck to celebrate the Great Wall experience.
