Detailed Itinerary:

At around 07:30AM to 08:00AM, meet your guide at your hotel and kick off your tour by heading for the Forbidden City (Imperial Museum). It was the imperial palace for emperors during the Ming and Qing dynasties and now a must-see attraction in Beijing. Now the Forbidden City is the best preserved imperial palace in China and the largest ancient palatial structure in the world. Walking through this magnificent imperial treaseure, you can not resist the dignity and grandeur of imperior dynasties, or even come up with the illusion that you are shutlling in time and dynasty.

Later you will visit the Temple of Heaven, which dates back to 1420, you will get a glimpse of the solemn scene of royal religious events. As you may figure out from its name, this religious complex mainly hosts annual ceremonies of prayer to Heaven for good harvest by the Emperors of the Ming and Qing dynasties. With its grand size of architectures and profound cultural connotation, Temple of Heaven offer visitors a great chance to touch Chinese history. 

Relax over a Chinese lunch at Qinghuaci Restaurant,then proceed to Summer Palace. This masterpiece is the largest and the most well-preserved royal park in China. It is famed as “The Museum of Royal Gardens”. Listening to the lively introduction by our knowledgeable guide, you will be captivated by the harmonious balance between natural landscape, stream, water, and artificial structures including pavilions, bridges, halls.

As this tour ends, our guide will take you back to your hotel.

Frequently Asked Questions

1.  Do you pickup from the airport?
Answer: No. We do not pickup from the airport, but we pickup from most of downtown hotels in Beijing.
We will pickup from all hotels located between the 1st ring road to 4th ring road, an area of 302 square kilometre in Beijing.  Please check our hotel pickup list in Beijing.

If you transfer flight in Beijing, please take airport to downtown express train, DIY a tour by yourself.

2.  Can I reserve a tour now and pay cash on arrival?
Answer: No. Booking in advance at least one day prior is required,  And  we will ask you to secure a tour by paying with your credit card.   Cash payment on site.to join in our tour is not acceptable.  Our tours are available every day, and usually we close selling at 18:00 for tours next day.

3.  How long do I need to wait for a tour guide to show up?
Answer:  10 to 20 minute.  We will not use one coach to pickup all passengers one by one from the above 100+ hotels, instead we have several coaches, and every coach picks up only from one area.  So you do not need to wait for a long time for our coach to come.

4.  Are there any significant things to look out for to identify the tour guide?
Answer: You do not need to look for our tour guide. Instead, we will find you.

On our confirmation voucher, our reservation staff will inform you the correct pickup time and pickup place, please show up in the hotel lobby in time.   Please do not wait in your hotel room or breakfast place.

Our tour guide will easily recognize you from the people in the hotel lobby by eye contact. 
Or he/she will ask all guests in the lobby one by one: are you Mr. or Ms *** ?

So please trust us, we know how to pick up our clients, and we do it every day.

5. Can I have vegetarian food for lunch?

Answer: Yes we will try.  Lunch is served in a local restaurant near Temple of Heven.  Please tell us on reservation that you are a vegetarian.  We will prepare some dishes for you only.   Please notice the defination of vegetarian meal differs from person to person, and we highly recommend you to bring something to eat in case you do not like the vegetarian we prepare for you.

6. No tourist shop, no factory visit?
Answer: Yes.  Our route is hotel-attractions-lunch-hotel.   We will not ask you to visit any gift shop opened for tourists, or visit any kind of factory.  

Why? In history, foreign visitors were asked to visit some state-owned factories and Friendship Shops, because Chinese authority wanted to tell you that socialism is better than capitalism.  Late more and more factories and gift shops found out it was a good idea to sell products to tourists, and they tried to offer some benefits to tour compnies to include shop visit in the itinerary.  Eventually many tourists decide that they have the right to say NO VISIT to any facotory or gift shop.  

Kindly remind when we walk from the parking to the entrance of every attraction, there are many tourist shops on the road side.  This is not "forced shopping".  You can quickly walk through.  We do not ask you to buy anything in any place.

7. Why this tour is only available on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday?
Answer:  Some people take our Great Wall tour only, choose to DIY and explore these attractions by foot, by subway, by taxi.  In our option, you need more guiding from a local tour guide of the background knowledges of culturual relics.

So we recommend you to take our One Day Great Wall Tour on Monday, Wednesday, Friday or Sunday.
