If you are happy with the services provided by your local guides and drivers a tip - though not compulsory - is appropriate.

No visit to Beijing is complete without walking along the legendary Great Wall of China, so escape the busy city streets with us and experience one of the Great Wonders. We promise you won't regret it!
Beat the early morning traffic with an early pickup and head outside Beijing for the Great Wall of China. Arrive at Mutianyu, a mostly restored, spectacular section of the wall, and take a moment to take in this incredible view. It's a short hike up onto the wall but the climb is worth it, as you'll be rewarded with amazing views of the wall as it stretches through the surrounding countryside. Yep. That's right. You've made it to the Great Wall of China. Savour this moment.
Trek along to the watchtowers and learn about some of the wall’s myths and legends from your local guide, all the while drinking in even more spectacular views. Although there are a lot of steep steps in places, we invite you to tackle the Great Wall at your own pace as you soak up the magnitude of this feat of engineering.
At the end of the walk along the Great Wall of China, it's up to you how you want to get down. You can head back the way you came, or, if you fancy a different perspective, take the cable car or toboggan (yep, toboggan) back down.
After well and truly working up an appetite, we'll head to a nearby village for a tasty local lunch and try some Chinese specialties. With full tummies, start making the journey back to Beijing, with one final stop left to go. Just to make this Great Wall of China tour a little different (and because we know you are totally up for this), refresh your tired feet with a traditional reflexology foot massage. In our opinion, it's the perfect finish to leave you completely relaxed after your active day wandering along the Great Wall of China.
Sit back, relax, and enjoy replaying the memories of the day over again in your mind. High five - you just walked the Great Wall of China!
