Mutianyu Great Wall
Your staff will hold your name card to welcome you at Beijing International Capital Airport (PEK) or Daxing International Airport upon your flight arrival. You will be transferred directly by your private car to the famous Mutianyu Great Wall, which is a further distance to the city of Beijing. It will take 1-hour to get there, and normally this section is less crowed and more beautiful. 96% of this area are covered by the trees and bush.

Since the Great Wall is one of seven wonders in the world, you now have a chance to hike on it. If you do not want to hike the whole way, you also can choose to take the cable car to go up and cable car or toboggan to come down.

After the tour, you will be transferred back to the airport.

Epic layover in Beijing-

Highly recommend Booking with Lily.

9 hour layovers can be boring. Not this one!! Amazing and
It’s so easy.
Once your off the plane look for the signs for 24 hour free visa. (They made it simple so tourists can enjoy the sights)
Lily and her driver had a sign with our names on it however they recognized me before I even noticed the sign.
Jumped in an air-conditioned car. Nice vehicle. Water. Lily spoke english well, told us some history and fun facts about China, She got our tickets, took us up the gondola to the Great Wall. We walked around took photos then took the toboggan down. Had a yummy lunch and jumped in the car back to the airport. Great Wall checked off “The Bucket List” 100% MUST DO!

Lily assisted us at the airport too.
If we’re need to do a layover in the future we will plan to do a similar layover. Forbidden City?
Despite flight delays, things worked out exceedingly well.

Thank you, Lisa, for making out short stay in China a memorable one. Our plane was delayed by two hours. We were supposed to meet the guide at 12:30 but our flight arrived at 2:00pm. Then we had to undergo the gauntlet of Security, Customs, etc., all done by people who barely speak English. Finally, we went to get a temporary visa and were told by the visa officer that it was already too late to do anything and that we would best sit down to wait our flight home. However, we ignored his advice (we had nothing to lose and 11 hours to kill) and went forward with our visa to hunt out our guide. And to our everlasting surprise and gratitude, once we got to our assigned meeting place, Starbucks, she spotted us at once, introducing herself. Within a few minutes, we were being whisked away by our private vehicle, a Buick SUV, and out of the airport in no time flat. Although it was close to 3 o'clock by now we did have enough time to visit the Great Wall of China., which was our real prime objective, all along. We spent a little more than an hour there, rushing a bit, but enjoying ourselves immensely. Indeed, we did not get to see the Forbidden Palace or Tienaman Sq., but I can't blame the tour guides for this. It was the airline, if anyone, who should be held responsible for their delaying shenanigans. I now know that to plan this type of tour properly, one has to leave cushion time for such unknown but not unexpected delays and problems. But getting back to my tour, the guide, Lisa, was extremely pleasant and knowledgeable. She was open to my questions, even those that were not directly related to the Great Wall. Just a nice person doing a very professional job. After the Great Wall, we went to a very decent, home-style, restaurant and had a wonderful vegetarian meal. I especially liked watch them produce home-made tofu. Our driver was a nice young man who also made us feel very comfortable and drove very safely. After that, we were left off at the airport with plenty of time before our flight home. All in all, it was a great experience that was salvaged from potential disaster. I highly recommend this tour guide, Lisa, and Lily's Tour Co.

Great for when the time is limited.. and at the time we did it, it feel like we where the only one on the Great Wall.. The best experience!

They are one of the most thoughtful and attentive tour companies out there. We have gone with many tours and they really look to your needs and make sure you were comfortable. They pick you up on from from the airport and got us there back in time. We also modified our tour to not only see the wall, we were also able to see the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square. They took us to the part of the wall where there were not a lot of people so we had great photos! They also gave us the option to see shows or go shopping. They also brought us to where the locals eat. We had the most amazing food. They really Lilly is a great tour guide and she really makes sure you're not worried about getting back to the airport on time. It's great that you don't have to worry about that because the tour company is taking care of you. My wife really enjoyed our tour. Lilly also knows where the best spots are to take for photos. She was also very knowledgeable about the history of the place. We were able to get great photo memories. If we were to go back to Beijing, I will use Lily's tour services again.
Incredible tour with an awesome guide!

This was a really fantastic tour! The airport pickup and drop-off were flawless, and my guide, Lily, was very knowledgeable. Walking the Great Wall was incredible - it is truly a world wonder. Lily also worked really hard to accommodate my food allergies at lunch, and I had an awesome Chinese meal that I'll definitely never forget. The Forbidden City is worth a couple of days in itself and I can't wait to go back to Beijing and explore some more. Thank you, Lily!
