Your guide and driver will wait for you in your hotel lobby (our guide will contact you in advance to confirm the pickup time). Departing your hotel in our air-conditioned vehicle, exploration of Beijing begins with a visit to the world’s largest city square, Tiananmen Square, the beating heart of China’s politics and spirit. Make your way across the road to the magnificent Forbidden City, a culturally historic landmark in China, which was the former residence of Chinese royalty for five centuries. After the Forbidden City tour, exploration continues with a visit to the Confucius Temple and Imperial College Museum. Stroll through Wudaoying hutong and experience local life as you wander through traditional courtyard residences blending with quaint shops, enjoy a coffee, and gain an insider’s view of a real Beijing community. Before heading back to your hotel, sample the famous local food market Sanyuanli where you can stock up on fruit and snacks for your next day’s trip to the Mutianyu Great Wall.
Note: Your tour guide may adjust your itinerary due to closure of the Forbidden City each Monday.
