What To Expect

Mutianyu Great Wall
The Great Wall is one of China's most iconic sights and is a must-see for everybody visiting Beijing. No matter what the weather, no matter how big the crowds, visitors aren't disappointed with the Great Wall. Mutianyu Great Wall is the longest fully resorted section of the Great Wall measuring 2.2km with 23 watchtowers. It is less crowded and has better architecture than other sections with more watchtowers. Mutianyun Great Wall is considered to be the most family-friendly portion of the Wall and the best part of Great Wall for photography.

The Great Wall of China with Beijing Private Layover Tour to Mutianyu Great Wall
Traveling-Time-B, 09-01-2020
This is a review of my Beijing Private Layover Tour to Mutianyu The Great Wall of China.
I had a 14 hour layover on January 7th of 2020 at Beijing Capital Airport and had scheduled a tour with Adele on January 6th. She was able to help me out at the last minute with email responses, itinerary, and payment arrangements. The reviews online their website looked decent so I decided to give it a try. I met my tour guide "Beiber" as soon as I could get the 24 hour entry permit that is granted to travelers without a visa. This is mandatory if you wish to leave the airport! It was Adele who sent me a list of instructions and where to go and what to do so I could meet my tour guide who brought me to his van and we proceeded with the 1.5 hour drive through Beijing to the Great Wall of China. Now January is quite cold as it was 0 degrees Celsius outside! But if you forget to bundle up, have no worry the provide a heated van ride and a thick coat to keep you warm outside! Now for the journey to the wall we started out at base entrance in the small village and was given my entry ticket as well as my cable car and toboggan slide ticket. You take the cable car/ski lift up about 5 minutes which takes you to the wall. Make sure your not afraid of heights you get elevated above ground very quick! Once up their be sure you catch a scenic view of the mountains before you go up the stairs to the great wall. Once inside your in! Congratulations you have made it to Mutianyu the Great Wall of China! What an amazing place to visit, take lots of pictures and video it will be a memorable experience. I walked a total of 2 hours, 1 in each directions from entrance number 6 to the great corner tower number 1 according to the maps posted at the base village. This time of year with such cold weather had very little visitors so I was able to get quite a few shots with absolutely no one on the wall. It was a very special experience to remember for a lifetime. You are walking structure that has been around for thousands of years, very impressive. The steps can be quite steep and terrain slippery with snow, there are hand rails in the more difficult sections for assistance. Finally making my exit I decided to take the toboggan slide down and boy was it fun. After all what you do up there you will be hungry, my tour guide met me inside the restaurants in the village and we had 1 hour lunch before drive back to airport. They have subway, baskin robbins, Chinese food, hamburgers, coffee, and all sorts of food and the venders take Visa/MasterCard if you have no local currency. All in all if you have 8 hours of more of a layover at Beijing airport, you have to take this tour and experience the Great Wall of China for yourself. My total time for my tour lasted about 6 hours. Adele herself called me to check in during my lunch break to see how everything was going, at first I was thinking to visit other areas that they offer to take you such as Tienanmen square and the forbidden city, but I was so tired from the walk on the wall I decided to just call it a day and go back to airport. It is nice to know they are very flexible with there options and they are looking out for you. Great accommodations all around. In summary if you have an extended stay in Beijing and want to experience the Great Wall give Beijing Private Layover Tour a chance. Am glad I did!

So we got to Beijing on Wednesday and got our layover visa stamped in our passport. We grabbed a taxi and went to the Crowne Plaza intl airport hotel. On our way, I was very concern on how we were going to utilize our 14 hours layover. I asked the taxi driver about couple of hours trip to the Great Wall on Thursday morning. The guy looked lost and do not speak English. When we got to the hotel, I was excited because it is a 5 star hotel. After checking in, I asked the hotel receptionist about a possible trip to the Great Wall or informations , she was lost also and do not speak English. I was so disappointed. I turned to the Internet and came across Grace tour service. At that time it was 2am. I shot her a text on WhatsApp she call back approximately a hour later. She spoke perfect English. I explained our situation and she planned our trip for the rest of my hours stay. She got us a private vehicle at our hotel by 8am for a very reasonable price. The driver was very cool and professional and never rushed us. He even make stops for us to grab breakfast. He make sure to get back to the airport in time for our ongoing flight. At first, I have given up that we were not going to see the Great Wall because of the people we encountered at first. Thanks so much to Grace and her crew who made it happened in a very short notice. We couldn’t have done it with out your. I highly recommend Grace to anyone looking for a layover tour. Very safe. She sends you information about the driver and a picture of the driver prior to his arrival to your location
Thanks Guys

I recently took a solo tour to the Great Wall and it was great! My tour guide was extremely kind, on time and attended to any of my needs. He had absolutely no problem taking pictures or answering any of my questions. I would definitely book with this tour company again.
PERFECT LAYOVER TRIP

My best friend and I landed at 6pm at PEK went to our hotel by the airport and then booked a 7am pick up time to head to The Great Wall.

Our driver was so nice and friendly and offered us a bottle of water and drove us to the Wall. We parked the car and the guide walked us over to the "lobby" of the wall, got our tickets for us and took the shuttle bus to the area of the lift to the actual wall. Told us he'd meet us at 1030 to head back to the airport to make our flight to Tokyo at 3pm.

It was a HOT day. We walked around, bring sneakers!, and took all of the pictures. 1030 sharp he was there to pick us up and safely bring us to the airport.

I would 100% recommend this to anyone looking to get to the Great Wall hassle free,
