Great Wall and Ming Tomb
"Ming Tomb, Sacred Road"
Uncover the history of the Sacred Road
This tour is split into two parts, both as interesting and impressive as the other as you see the strength and glory of China and its people.
The Great Wall itself is possibly the most renowned feature of China as one of the Seven Wonders of the World. You’ll be able to admire the incredible architecture and stunning views from this amazing piece of history as you stroll along the famous paths. During this tour you can visit a section of the Great Wall of your choice. One of the most famous and popular sections of the Wall is the Badaling section. Its impressive length of over 6,400km was once thought to be built entirely during the Qin Dynasty between 221 and 238 BC but is now thought to be even earlier.
The second half of the tour takes you to visit the Ming tombs which are an impressive collection of imperial mausoleums built by the Ming dynasty. You’ll get to visit these tombs and see the burial place of some of the most powerful and glorious Emperors as well as see the incredibly detailed small animals that guard the road to the tombs.
