What to Expect
Enjoy a full-day sightseeing tour of Beijing with a private guide and get closer to the essence of the ancient city and Chinese culture.
Your tour starts at Tiananmen Square, the beating heart and symbol of Beijing. The largest public square in the world, with space for up to 1 million people during public celebrations or gatherings, the square has been at the center of many historic - and controversial - events.
Continue to the Imperial Palace, better known as the "Forbidden City," to tour the largest and best-preserved palaces of imperial China. Your guide will take you on a journey through 500 years of history as you wander through the courtyards of the Ming and Qing dynasties.
Your next stop is the 15th-century Temple of Heaven temple complex, where the Ming and Qing emperors used to pray for peace and good harvests.
After lunch at a local restaurant, end your tour at the Summer Palace on Kunming Lake, and admire one of China's largest imperial gardens. Originally a royal garden and temporary dwelling for the emperors of the Qing Dynasty, the palace is now a lovely park of marble boats, enchanting bridges, ornate pagodas, and bronze statues of fierce dragons.
