Stop At: Mutianyu Great Wall, Mutianyu Village, Bohai Town, Huairou District, Beijing China

Mutianyu Great Wall is much steeper than Badaling Great Wall, and a more challenging climb. This section is older than Badaling, and features outer and inner parapets. There are 22 watch-towers in the 2250-meter-long Mutianyu Great Wall, and the highest one is 540 meters above sea level. This section of the wall is also surrounded by woodland and streams. The Great Wall takes on different looks in different seasons. In spring, flowers are blooming. In summer, the Great Wall is lush and green. In winter, the Great Wall is covered with white snow. However, the Great Wall’s most charming season is autumn, when fruits ripen and leaves of gorgeously diverse color fall at this photogenic spot.

While we enjoyed seeing the Great Wall and recommend the beauty and less-crowded aspects of the Mutianyu site, I can not recommend this particular tour through La Vacanza Travel because of the many hidden costs associated with it. The directions say to contact the tour agency directly with questions about the tour. We called the number a couple of days before, and there was no answer. We received an online message the day before the tour that gave us the number of our guide to contact. However, once we started learning about the hidden costs, it was too late to cancel and go with someone else. The tour description on La Vacanza Travel states that hotel pickup and drop off from Beijing hotels is included. Because this tour was the only reason we travelled to Beijing, we booked a hotel in the north part of the city since it was on the way to the site. When we finally got in touch with our guide, she said hotel pickup was only included in certain parts of the city, so we would have to take (and pay for) a taxi into the city, only to turn around and take the shuttle pretty much past our hotel with the tour group. When we arrived at the Great Wall, our tour guide told us to give her money so she could buy our tickets on the chair lift up the wall. We had been told this was optional, and there were others in our group that were unsure if they wanted to do this, but our guide was very pressuring and made everyone pay. The chair lift did make it much easier to see the wall, but this should be included in the price if it’s pretty much required. At lunch, our guide said that we had to pay for our own drinks except water. I ordered water, and never received it. When I asked, the guide said it actually wasn’t included. I think there just seem to be these discrepancies between La Vacanza Travel and the actual tour company in China. La Vacanza Travel could do a much better job explaining what is included and needed for the tour. If I had to do it over again, I would choose another booking agency.

So this wasn't exactly what I expected - when it says FULL DAY, I expect a FULL day! Apparently my hotel is outside of the "zone", so I had to go to another hotel only about 10 mins away from mine to be picked up...then I was the only one on the tour. Dubious. On the way there we stopped at some jade factory where I was encouraged to buy jade gifts...luckily I did see other tourists stopping there, so slightly less dubious. Then the wall was great - this tour only includes the price of entry to the wall - NOT the ticket to get up the to the top!) This is a beautiful section of the wall, the guide left me to myself and I explored. (only part of the tour which was good!) But only for two hours. :( As I said, I was expecting a full day. So then after lunch, for which the food is included, but not the drink, we stopped at a tea house where there was a tea ceremony (the same one that I'd been scammed at Forbidden City the day before) and again felt dubious. I said no thank you (at least the tea service is included in this ticket!) After that it was just back to the city. At least they dropped me back off at my hotel! I was back in the city by 2pm! Why not call it a 1/2 day tour, stop the crap with the Jade and Tea, and extend the time on the wall by a couple hours! Then you could have lunch ~12:30 (instead of 11:30) and still be back by 2. Or if that other crap is included; SAY SO IN THE TOUR DESCRIPTION!!

Too many purchase stops at the jade store and the tea shop. I wish the tour guide came with me to the wall

The trip was good, despite of the time it took us to arrive at the wall (3.30 hs). ATTENTION : We were just advised that we would have only 2 hours to stay at the wall when we arrived, and we were told that is the standard offered by the company. So if you are planning to stay longer, be advised. The lunch was good, as it was the shopping experiences (despite of the very inflated prices) Our guide have his best to keep us happy, as did the driver

Had an excellent day at the Great Wall @ Mutianyu in a small group of 3 and our tour guide. She was very punctual and helpful. She called me the night before and confirmed the pick-up time and place and was at the hotel on time. The ride to the wall was comfortable and she gave us some useful background about the history of the Wall before we reached there. Her suggestions to take the cable car up and Toboggan down were spot on, as we enjoyed both rides thoroughly. While she did not join us to the Wall, her tips on the side of the wall we should walk were correct. Though slightly more steep it was less crowded and really beautiful. We got two hours there and managed a small walk the other side of the wall also. The place gets crowded very fast, so starting early is the smart thing to do. We had a beautiful clear day and got great photos and view. There are several steep steps and some moderate level of fitness is required to enjoy the experience.The lunch was simple but tasty and the time spent at the jade factory and tea shop were entertaining. I ended up buying more stuff than I thought I would, but happy with what I got. Its one big item off my bucket list..so all in a very satisfying experience.
