Discover the new modern wonders of the world.
The Great Wall, one of the greatest wonders of the world, was listed as a World Heritage by UNESCO in 1987. Just like a gigantic dragon, it winds up and down across deserts, grasslands, mountains and plateaus, stretching approximately 13,170 miles (21,196 kilometres) from east to west of China.
With a history of more than 2,000 years, some of the sections are now in ruins or have disappeared. However, it is still one of the most appealing attractions all around the world owing to its architectural grandeur and historical significance.
Avoid the crowds and travel in style to this new modern wonder of the world.
Devised for people who appreciate the highest standards, our charming English speaking driver and guide will collect you from your hotel in one of our luxury vehicles and take you on a private tour of the Great Wall of China.
We specialise in unique experiences and will happily tailor make your trip to be a truly 'once in a lifetime' experience.
