Beijing Lama Temple, Panda Garden and Ancient Altar Day Tour

Beijing Lama Temple, Panda Garden and Ancient Altar Day Tour

This Beijing tour starts from the famous Lama Temple, once the residence of a royal court. This vibrantly ornamented temple is one of the largest and most important Tibetan Buddhist monasteries in the world.

Built in 1694 AD, Lama Temple houses tranquil gardens, superb sculptures and a veritable treasury of Buddhist art. Then you head to see the most important living treasure in Chin - the giant Panda in Beijing Zoo. Seizing this rare opportunity to see the endangered treasure is a great pleasure.

After a delicious Chinese lunch you will travel to an altar built in 1420 AD to memorialize the divine farmer Shennong, an emperor from thousands of years ago who taught his people the art of agriculture. Inside is a museum documenting the rise of Chinese architecture and agriculture in ancient times.

William was lovely and a great tour guide, there was only myself, my mum and my niece were on this tour, so William really took the time to make sure that we saw as much as possible without being rushed, really relaxed day, well worth the money!

What can I say...the pandas are too cute for words. Also saw beautiful peacocks and other exotics. The Tibetan Temple was awesome. Monks, nuns, and the faithful practicing their faith in a centuries old religious complex. A great day in Beijing.

This was great. It turned into a personal tour since I was the only person. It was a very relax day. Did not feel rushed all. I only wish the Panda's would been move active.

We've been to Beijing before and seen most of the high priority destinations. We had some spare time on this trip and found this tour which provided other things that we hadn't done. The guide, Maria, did an excellent job of taking us through a wonderful experience. The lunch at a small local Chinese restaurant was wonderful. The Zoo to see the Pandas was a wonderful experience.

Nice trip with very knowledgable guide who spoke excellent English. The attractions were refreshingly uncrowded when I visited and I was lucky enough to be the only person on the tour that day which meant a truly personalised experience!
