Where is Mutianyu Great Wall?
Mutianyu is located 60 km (37 miles) northeast of Beijing in Huairou County. As one of the Great Wall's best-preserved parts, the Mutianyusection of the Great Wall used to serve as the northern barrier defending Beijing and the imperial tombs.
Why should you consider a Mutianyu private tour?
Compared with other sections of the Great Wall, the Mutianyu Great Wall possesses unique characteristics in its construction. Watchtowers are densely placed along this section of the Great Wall - 22 watchtowers on this 2,250-meter-long stretch. Both the outer and inner parapets are crenelated with merlots so that shots could be fired at the enemy on both sides - a feature rarely seen on other parts of the Great Wall. Mutianyu has seen famous visitors from world leaders to sports clubs (the NBA's Golden State Warriors). Both First Ladies Michelle Obama and Melania Trump chose Mutianyu as their destinations of Great Wall to visit.
While Mutianyu never gets as packed as Badaling, allowing you to have a peaceful time exploring the wall. After walking around on Mutianyu, you have the option of coming down via walking, taking a cable car, or taking a toboggan ride (lots of fun and highly recommended!). At the end of the tour, we will transfer you back directly to your hotel.

While there, your guide will provide you with knowledge and history of the Great Wall along with some fun anecdotes and other stories that will only enhance your Great Wall experience.

My husband and I are not advance planners, but we felt so fortunate to have found a quality service in Great Wall Adventures available so last minute! We were paired with tour guide Oliver and driver Mr. Ding and could not have been more pleased with their service! They picked us up at our hotel at noon and we made excellent time. Oliver spoke great English and educated us on the history of the Great Wall on our trip to the Mutianyu section of the Wall. He took care of everything for us with tickets (much appreciated after doing that on our own at Forbidden City earlier in our trip) and gave interesting facts along the way. Oliver also knew all of the great spots for pictures, and what an added bonus to not just have selfies on the Great Wall! Would definitely book with these guys again, especially with Oliver and Mr. Ding!
