Tour description provided by Viator
See the Great Wall from both the ground and from the air on this private walking tour and helicopter tour! Choose to hike or take a relaxing cable car ride up the wall and get an up-close look at this magnificent structure on a private walking tour. After lunch at a local Chinese restaurant, take to the skies on a scenic helicopter ride and admire bird’s-eye views of the Great Wall and beyond!
On this 8-hour private tour, experience the Great Wall from two different perspectives -- by foot and by air! After pickup from your Beijing hotel by comfortable coach, head 50 miles to Badaling, the most famous and best-preserved section of the Great Wall. Challenge yourself to a hike up the wall on foot or enjoy a smooth ride up on a cable car.
Snake through the wall’s large pathways; explore the awe-inspiring watchtowers; listen to the fascinating stories from your private guide and revel at the distant views. Around noon, relax and rest your legs while enjoying lunch at a local Chinese restaurant.
The highlight of your day is yet to come -- after your walking tour, escape the crowds and climb aboard a helicopter for unbeatable views of the Great Wall from above!
The helicopter will take off from the Badaling airport and will take you on an exciting 15-minute ride above the Great Wall and other scenic spots. Admire the South Peak, North Peak, the ancient Beacon Tower and much more. Don’t forget to bring your camera to record this exhilarating experience!
Head back down to land and take one last look at the marvelous Great Wall before returning to your hotel.
