After pickup in the morning from your hotel, hop aboard a comfortable coach and head north out of bustling Beijing to two popular area attractions. The first stop on your full-day sightseeing tour is the Great Wall of China, the greatest symbol of ancient Chinese engineering and one of the world’s most famous structures. The Badaling section is a prime, preserved example of this colossal monument, which became a strategic military location during the Warring States period (476-221 BC), when many incomplete parts of the wall were built. Here at the Badaling section, you have the opportunity to climb either the north or south face of the Great Wall, enjoying sweeping views of the surrounding landscape. As you stroll with your guide past watchtowers along the ancient fortification, learn why it was designated a UNESCO World Heritage site and see why it lives up to its reputation as one of the Eight Wonders of the World. From Badaling it’s on to the sacred Ming Tombs, burial grounds to 13 of the 16 Ming emperors. Situated just outside the city, only three of the tombs are actually open for viewing. Discover the earliest and largest of the excavated burial sites, the Chang Ling Tomb, which dates back to 1413 and is divided into three separate, impressive courtyards. During your day trip, a Chinese-style lunch is included, along with a shopping opportunity at the renowned Longdi Jade Factory. Learn how this beautiful stone is carved and enjoy browsing for goods before returning to your hotel in Beijing city aboard the coach.

    What a perfect way to end our stay in Beijing. David has been a wonderful and caring tour guide, always ready to help out. He also gave great and informative insights on the history of the wall. He even helped us organizing lunch, even tough we had no cash with us. Definitely recommended!
