Beijing is a reflection of China itself, steeped in history from the very ancient to the modern. This comprehensive tour takes you to the major attractions of Beijing, including two UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
Visit the impressive Tiananmen Square, the largest square in the world and synonymous with several key events in Chinese history.
Explore the legendary Forbidden City, the largest and most complete imperial palace and ancient building complex in China, and the world. The seat of power of 24 Chinese emperors of the Ming and Qing dynasties, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is now known as the Imperial Palace Museum and has the largest collection of preserved ancient wooden structures in the world.
The Temple of Heaven is China’s largest temple and altar complex, dating back to the Ming and Qing dynasties.
Summer Palace is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the largest and best-preserved imperial garden in China.
You will be picked up from your hotel and taken in an air-conditioned coach for a sightseeing tour of Beijing. An English-speaking tour guide will accompany you on this tour.
Both, the Classic Beijing tour and the Historical Beijing tour, are identical except that the Classic Beijing tour also includes the Summer Palace.
The highlights of your tour are:
Stop for a substantial lunch in a local restaurant.
End the tour with a scenic coach ride plus an unbeatable shopping experience at the Pearl Market.
At the end of the tour, you will be dropped back at your hotel in Beijing.
