    In the morning, our guide will meet you at the lobby of your hotel from 06:30 to 07:00, transfer you for the adventurous hiking at Mutianyu Great Wall.

    The Mutianyu Great Wall is located in Huairou District of Beijing and is 73 kilometers from Beijing downtown. It was originally built in Northern Qi Dynasty (550 - 557) and reconstructed in Ming Dynasty to strength its construction.

    Mutianyu Great Wall is outstandingly featured with dense distribution of watchtowers, with 22 watchtowers at 100 meter intervals. Also these watchtowers have different forms and structures. Mutianyu Great Wall fully displays the essence of the Great Wall of China. Built in soaring mountain ridges, Mutianyu has magnificent construction and compact layout. Its breathtaking views with the surrounded mountains and elegant green forests and vegetation are also attractive features to tourists.

    Mutianyu is 22 kilometers in length, obviously we will not visit all 22 watchtowers.  Though you can walk as long as you can on the Great Wall, because the Wall was built on high mountains, people usually visit 5 watch towers only.

    3.  How long do I need to wait for a tour guide to show up?
    Answer:  10 to 15 minute.  We will not use one coach to pickup all passengers one by one from the above 100+ hotels, instead we have several coaches, and every coach picks up only from one area.  So you do not need to wait for a long time for our coach to come.

    4.  Are there any significant things to look out for to identify the tour guide?
    Answer: You do not need to look for our tour guide. Instead, we will find you.

    On our confirmation voucher, our reservation staff will inform you the correct pickup time and pickup place, please show up in the hotel lobby in time.   Please do not wait in your hotel room or breakfast place.

    Our tour guide will easily recognize you from the people in the hotel lobby by eye contact.
    Or he/she will ask all guests in the lobby one by one: are you Mr. or Ms *** ?

    So please trust us, we know how to pick up our clients, and we do it every day.

    5. Can I have vegetarian food for lunch?

    Answer: Yes we will try.  Lunch is served in a local restaurant near Mutianyu Great Wall.  Please tell us on reservation that you are a vegetarian.  We will prepare some dishes for you only.   Please notice the defination of vegetarian meal differs from person to person, and we highly recommend you to bring something to eat in case you do not like the vegetarian we prepare for you.

    6. No tourist shop, no factory visit?
    Answer: Yes.  Our route is hotel-Great Wall-hotel.   We will not ask you to visit any gift shop opened for tourists, or visit any kind of factory.  

    Why?  In history, foreign visitors were asked to visit some state-owned factories and Friendship Shops, because Chinese authority wanted to tell you that socialism is better than capitalism.  Late more and more factories and gift shops found out it was a good idea to sell products to tourists, and they tried to offer some benefits to tour compnies to include shop visit in the itinerary.  Eventually many tourists decide that they have the right to say NO VISIT to any facotory or gift shop.  

    Kindly remind when we walk from the parking to the entrance of Mutianyu Great Wall, there are many tourist shops on the road side.  This is not "forced shopping".  You can quickly walk through.  We do not ask you to buy anything in any place.
