BEIJING, Jan. 18 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- 'Sleep on the Great Wall' has been The China Guide's ( ) most popular tour for many years, and they have now developed a full 4-day group itinerary that includes this adventure trip. The new group tour is designed as a budget option for travelers to Beijing and includes the city's famous sights, hands-on cultural experiences as well as their infamous overnight stay and hike on the Great Wall.

"Staying overnight on the Great Wall is the most memorable and exciting experience for our guests. It was a natural decision to include this two-day excursion in a new all-inclusive Beijing group tour," says Judy Huang, Travel Manager of The China Guide.

The 'Sleep on the Wall' portion of the group trip includes a local dinner in the village at the base of Jinshanling Great Wall, sleeping equipment, snacks and drinks for overnight and most importantly a night under the stars on a world wonder. Guests will wake up to fresh coffee and breakfast before embarking on 6-mile picturesque hike atop the snaking wall to the Simatai Great Wall section.

The Beijing group tour runs on a weekly schedule and includes accommodation in a four-star boutique courtyard hotel, transportation, professional English speaking guide, meals and entrance tickets for sights. The China Guide's focus is on quality Western-style service, meaning that they won't take guests to tourist factory shops or restaurants during the trip. Their tour provides travelers with the chance to experience real Chinese culture. Guests will visit a traditional courtyard home, learn and practice the art of dumpling making and enjoy a home-cooked lunch. The tour will also visit the famous Panjiayuan weekend market and an evening at the famous Chaoyang Acrobat Show, something most companies do not include.

The China Guide's Beijing Group Tour is a great budget option for travelers, costing $555 per person. The itinerary includes 4 full tour days and 5 nights' accommodation. "Our group package offers an intimate tour of Beijing and the Great Wall, with a budget and service-style for all travelers and families," adds Huang.
