Duration: 1 hour

Explore Beijing's architectural wonders and experience its cultural delights on this full-day private tour. With your expert guide, discover the ambitious nature of ancient Chinese architecture as you hike the Ming Dynasty-era Great Wall at Mutianyu. Later, compare this with the modern architecture of the the 2008 Olympic's Bird's Nest and the Water Cube. If you choose the additional option, unwind in natural hot springs at the Chunhuiyan Hot Springs Resort. Transport by private, air-conditioned vehicle and an authentic Chinese lunch are included.

After pickup from your Beijing hotel, you will be taken to the entrance of the Great Wall at Mutianyu, one of the best-preserved section of the wall that's most representative of how it looked during the Ming Dynasty. Follow your guide on a moderate hike along the wall, which stretches 2,300 feet (700 meters) with inclines reaching up to 460 feet (140 meters).

Along the way, enjoy the picturesque views of the wall snaking through the tree-covered mountain. Learn from your guide about the tactical significance of several watchtowers and segments of this fortification. Your hike will take approximately two hours, depending on the pace you choose to take.
Walk to a nearby popular restaurant to delight in a lunch of local Beijing specialties. Then, if you choose the hot springs spa option, you'll be driven to the Chunhuiyan Hot Springs Resort to unwind after your hike. Feel your stress and tiredness seep away as you soak in the hot springs, containing naturally occurring minerals that aid rehabilitation. You may also choose to relax in the sauna or swim in the refreshing pool.
After your spa experience, take a 30-minute drive to Beijing National Stadium, informally known as the Bird's Nest, and the Beijing National Aquatics Center, known as the Water Cube. Spend some time exploring these landmarks' surroundings and enjoying the scenery while hearing accounts of their design and function during the 2008 Olympics.
At the end of your tour, you'll be taken back to your Beijing hotel.
