On this Beijing tour, enjoy a comfortable air-conditioned drive along a scenic expressway to Huangya Pass, a restored section of the Great Wall of China. This guided tour is ideal for newcomers to China, photographers, and anyone looking to experience a fascinating piece of history.
Your Beijing tour begins when your friendly guide picks you up from your port. Embark on a pleasant ride along a picturesque expressway heading to Huangya Pass, located 180-kilometers north of Tianjin.
You'll reach a popular section of the striking Great Wall of China. The Huangyaguan Pass was originally built by the Northern Qi Dynasty over 1,400 years ago, and was repaired in large scale with bricks during the Ming dynasty. Observe the watch towers, barracks, drain holes, and other military facilities arranged along the wall.
As you climb a portion of the Huangyaguan Pass, you'll note the entire Huangya Pass is built on a mountain ridge, providing breathtaking views of China's lush countryside. This is a perfect opportunity to capture panoramic photographs of a gorgeous vista.
Your Beijing tour ends by enjoying a scenic drive along the same expressway from earlier back to your port. Book this Beijing tour to visit one of the most popular destinations in China.

Thank goodness we booked this tour. We had looked at the excursions offered from the cruise ship and felt they were very over priced. This tour was really good value. The area of the Great Wall we were taken to was not busy at all - we were able to take our time and take many pictures. It was the highlight of our cruise. We will not hesitate to book with Shore Excursions group again.
