Tour Details

Experience two UNESCO World Heritage Sites right outside the city of Beijing in this day tour of historic Chinese locations. Visit the Great Wall of China and the Ming Tombs and learn about these historic and iconic landmarks in this small group day tour.

Your guide will pick you up at your hotel in an air-conditioned transportation service. You'll travel outside the city of Beijing to the Great Wall of China to tour the Badaling section of the wall. Construction on the Great Wall began in the 7th Century B.C. to protect China from invaders, and now it spans 13,171 miles after being constructed and built upon over a series of Chinese dynasties. Due to its incredible length and size, it is the only man-made structure that can be viewed from space. You will visit the Badaling section of the Great Wall to tour one of the most well preserved sections of the entire system of walls. Here you can climb and traverse the wall and enjoy the breathtaking panoramic views of the countryside on top of the towers along the wall. Bring a camera, as the scenery is one you will want to remember forever.

After the Great Wall, you will make a stop for an included Chinese-style lunch to reenergize and rest. You will also have the chance to go on a shopping spree at the Beijing Jade Factory, where you can browse all the beautiful jade and jadeite products unique to China. After your jade shopping, you will travel to the site of the Ming Dynasty tombs to tour the final resting place of 13 of the 16 Ming emperors. Explore the excavated site of the Changling tomb, the earliest and largest of the tombs, and learn about Ming society and its imperial culture.

At the end of the day, you will be dropped back off at your hotel by air-conditioned transportation service once again. This Great Wall and Ming tombs tour gives you a comprehensive look into two important world historic sites especially important to China's political and cultural histories. It is the perfect way to get a close look at these remarkable Chinese landmarks in one day.
