Tour Details

Explore the main highlights of the capital of China as you visit the essential sightseeing locations of Beijing. Tour must-see landmarks in China, which are some of the most famous and historically renowned places in the world.

Home to the Olympic Games in 2008, Beijing has been a thriving area of culture, wealth, and power in the People's Republic of China. Your day will begin at the doorstep of your hotel with a complimentary air-conditioned transportation service that will take you first to Tiananmen Square. Tour the third largest public square in the world and an integral part of China's modern history. The square has always been a bustling area and a center of political activity. It is frequently visited by many Chinese who come to see Mao Zedong's mausoleum and the monuments erected in the middle of the plaza. Your guide will then lead you on a walk to the north end of Tiananmen Square through the Tiananmen Gate and into the Forbidden City to tour the Chinese Imperial Palace, which housed the country's emperors for almost 500 years, from the Ming Dynasty to the Qin Dynasty. The Forbidden City consists of 980 different buildings and covers around 7,800,000 square feet, and it contains one of the most incredible collections of historical artifacts and treasures in any country in the world. You will be amazed by the ways in which the Chinese emperor lived and how the Chinese imperial government worked.

After your Forbidden City tour, you will stop with your group for a provided Chinese-style lunch. Once you are well fed and rested, you will continue outside the city of Beijing to the Great Wall of China to tour the Badaling section of the wall. Construction on the Great Wall began in the 7th Century B.C. to protect China from invaders. It was reconstructed and expanded upon during a series of Chinese dynasties, and it now spans 13,171 miles across the Chinese countryside. Due to its incredible length and size, it is the only man-made construction that can be viewed from space. You will visit the Badaling section of the Great Wall to tour one of the most well preserved sections of the entire structure. Here you can climb and traverse the wall and enjoy the breathtaking panoramic views of the countryside on top of the tower along the wall. Bring a camera, as the scenery is something you will want to hold on to forever.

After visiting the Great Wall, you will be transported back to Beijing. Before you are dropped back off at your hotel, you will stop at the famous Longdi Jade Factory, where you can browse and shop for the unique and authentic jade and jadeite artwork. This is a complete tour of the most important landmarks in Beijing, and it is one you do not want to miss.
