The Great Wall Tour is at the top of the list for an adventure experience!  It’s considered to be one of the toughest courses, yet the most picturesque.  Staged in China’s Tianjin Province, it includes more than six (6) kilometers on the Great Wall and more than 5,100 steps.  These range in height from several inches to almost knee-high.  Along the course you will pass through beautiful farmland and tiny, picturesque villages.  Don’t let the challenging course intimidate you though as the race offers a distance for everyone!

We are offering several flexible travel packages to meet your time, interests and budget preferences.  Our core Beijing Packages range from the stress free all-inclusive Deluxe six-night package to the five-night Budget package. In addition, clients consistently rave about our optional pre-marathon package to Hong Kong for three nights and a two-night post-marathon extension to Xian.  Based on years of positive client feedback we have also brought back our Three City Package, which will allow you to tour Beijing, Xi’an, and Shanghai with a cruise along the Yangtze River, all in deluxe comfort while enjoying the camaraderie of a Marathon Tours group.

Or, choose the challenge of a lifetime by combining our Great Wall Marathon and Bhutan Thunder Dragon Marathon tours. Compare two historic cultures, from the bustle of China to the quiet tranquility of Bhutan. The Dragon Challenge – Two (2) challenging races separated by 1800 miles and eight (8) days!
