The tour starts at 8:00am. Sit back and relax in the coach as your driver and guide take you to the first stop – Tiananmen Square. Located in the heart of Beijing, it borne witness to many significant events of China. It is ranked as the largest city square in the world and is able to accommodate one million people for public gatherings.

Beijing Tiananmen Square

After a short stroll through the Square, you will reach the Forbidden City, the largest palace complex in the world. Known as the imperial residence for 24 emperors of Ming and Qing dynasties, the 600-year-old sprawling palace complex is now the famous landmark of Beijing. Gorgeous palatial buildings and cultural relics will show you a vivid picture of China's magnificent eras and dynasties.

Beijing Forbidden City

You will then head to MuTianYu Great Wall without any "shopping stops" or "factory stores visits". MuTianYu Great Wall is one of the best-preserved sections of it. It is less touristy in the surroundings of verdant mountains and forests. You will hike the Great Wall accompanied by your guide to see it snaking across the hills and through the forest. Good chance for you to take some amazing pictures. The round trip cable car will take you up and down the mountains to soak up the breathtaking panoramic view of the Great Wall.
