Driver + Vehicle + Entrance tickets + Tour Assistant
We will pick you up at about 7:00 am at your hotel within second ring of Beijing downtown (if your hotel is beyond second ring road, please come to appointed hotel or subway station to join the tour). After about 2.5 hours’ drive, you will arrive at Gubei Water Town—one of China’s most famous water towns. The town has the Simatai section of China’s Great Wall as the background and boasts picturesque canals, bridges, courtyard houses, shops, and hotels. It increasingly becomes another popular site for visitors in Beijing. Your guide will handle the admission tickets but not accompany you to explore the water town and Great Wall. You will wander around the town by yourself and can try some local snacks on your own cost.
After having fun at the water town, you will move on to Simatai Great Wall, the only section of Great Wall that retains the original appearance from Ming dynasty, thus called “primitive Great Wall” by UNESCO. This part of the Great Wall stretches 5.4 kilometers with a total of 35 lookout towers. And the towers on Simatai Great Wall with delicate design and various structures are different from those on other parts of the Great Wall. Please watch your steps while walking as it is known for being steep. If hiking is too much for you, cable car is available and optional. You will finish the exploration at about 15:00 pm and get back to the designated place where your guide will be waiting for you. Then we will drive back to Beijing downtown for about 2.5 hours and drop you off at Dongzhimen Subway Station, or Wangfujing, or Qianmen Sanjiao. You can freely explore the city on your own and get back to your hotel by yourself.
Kind Notice: If your hotel is beyond 2nd ring road of the city, please ask the tour supplier for a downtown place and come to there to meet the group.
