Book a Private Car to Mutianyu Great Wall
Hiring a private car for excursions outside the city is a good choice if you are not travelling on budget and want to avoid the crowded people and traffic. If you are travelling with 3 or 4 friends, this way is much more cost-efficient. Your driver will be happy to purchase the tickets for you upon your arrival if required. To make things more interesting, hiring an English speaking guide (550CNY per day, 8-9 working hours) is a good option if it works for you. Please bear in mind that the driver speaks little English, so if any problem arises please call our office (+86 185 1025 4530) if there is any misunderstanding with the driver.
