In the movie, the buddies careen along the Great Wall on a motorcycle, but the outfitters we called said this is a major no-no. Steve Xu, president of Champion Holidays, once arranged for a high school jazz band from Arizona to play a concert on the wall, but special permission is required for any wall-related functions, he says.
Price: Starting at $1,299 (airfare included), a nine-day China Discovery tour includes a visit to the wall and other attractions in Beijing, Suzhou and Shanghai.
