What to Take on Your Trip

We suggest wearing comfortable walking shoes for your visit. Flip-flops or heels may not be suitable for walking on the Great Wall or exploring city sites for an extended period.

Being prepared is always beneficial, so check the weather forecast for any potential rain, snow, or extreme temperatures.

In case of harsh weather conditions, our drivers and guides will make every effort to ensure you remain dry, warm, or cool as needed.

Check out weather forecast of the attractions before your departure: 

Hire a Guide or Just a Driver

A tour guide provides a deeper understanding of the culture and history of a place from a local’s perspective.

However, hiring a guide comes with an additional expense, typically around 550RMB-850RMB per day for an English-speaking guide (not a driver, as they are two separate positions) working 8-9 hours per day.

If you prefer a less expensive option, you can hire a non-English/Chinese speaking driver who can take you to the sites, wait for you, and knows where to take you and when to bring you back.

Although you won’t get as much historical information, you can rely on the driver’s local knowledge.

If you need to communicate with the driver, WeChat’s translator function is a popular tool.

You can use it to ask for directions, provide addresses, and more. To use the feature, long-press on the message you want to translate in a chat, and then select the “Translate” option from the menu that appears.

The message will be translated into the interface language you have set for WeChat.

If there is any misunderstanding with the non-English speaking driver, you can also call our office (+86 185 1025 4530).

Purchase Entrance Tickets in Advance or Not

There is no need to purchase Great Wall of China tickets in advance, as the ticket office at the foot of the Great Wall is open daily.

Cable car and toboggan tickets can be obtained at the ticket office, either at the entrance or at the top.

Typically, you can approach the entrance and gain immediate access, with a potential wait time of just five minutes in line.

Please ensure you have cash (RMB) or a credit card on hand to purchase Great Wall of China tickets.

Due to high demand, obtaining tickets for the Forbidden City has become increasingly challenging.

Forbidden City tickets are released at 8 pm each night (local time), but there is no fixed number made available.

To avoid disappointment, we strongly recommend booking Forbidden City tickets online at least 7 days in advance through third party platforms like Viator or Klookonce they become accessible.
