After hotel pickup in the morning by private vehicle, your tour begins with a visit to Tiananmen Square, one of the largest city squares in the world. 

On Chang'an Street, see the Great Hall of the People (Renmin Dahuitang) and the National Museum of China (formerly the National Museum of Chinese History and the Museum of the Chinese Revolution), and take a look at Chairman Mao's Mausoleum (aka Chairman Mao Memorial Hall) in the middle of the square. From the gate, walk to the Forbidden City, the UNESCO World Heritage–listed former Chinese imperial palace. A total of 24 emperors lived and ruled from here, starting with the Ming dynasty and ending with the Qing. You'll spend a couple of hours here exploring.

Then it's time for lunch, which you'll enjoy at a local restaurant for dumplings before continuing your day tour to the Great Wall at Mutianyu, a typically less-crowded section of the Great Wall of China. After the 1.5-hour drive, you have about two hours here to hike. Take the cable car up half way to begin your walk, and then take it back down or ride the toboggan to save time and energy.

Your tour then ends with return transport to your hotel.

In a city where the language barrier can be daunting, this took the stress completely off of figuring out where to go and what to do.

A great tour was made even better by Sally, our tour guide. She was very knowledgeable and happy to answer questions about the places we went – and about life in China in general. We went during the very busy Golden Week Holiday. Sally timed everything perfectly to avoid the worst of the crowds. This tour is a must for people visiting Beijing.

our tour guide Joyce met us at our hotel, sweet lady and very knowledgeable about her Chinese culture and history. beware, the first week of October is a national holiday and all tourist attractions are packed with people, traffic jams going to the great wall and long lines to get into attractions. Amazingly, Joyce found us short cuts to get into the forbidden palace. Lunch was delicious, our driver Mr Wu negotiated every obstacle with precision, both of them were very patient with us.

Sherry did a phenomenal job throughout the day! We were only in Beijing for one day so we needed to make the most of it and this tour was perfect. We joked that having Sherry taking photos of us throughout was money well spent right there since we never get photos together. She was much more than that - kind, funny, and knowledgeable. It's so much better to have a tour guide explain the significance of a site, picture, or even positioning. There were so many things would have gone unnoticed had we not had someone to guide us. The Great Wall was obviously a highlight of the trip. There were so few people there! Tip: download the app Retouch and you can remove people/objects from your photo and make it really look like you're alone on the wall. A great tour, thank you!

I have nothing but excellent marks for this Tour and the Tour guide. The sites were awesome and my tour guide Lily was fantastic! I couldn't have asked for a more knowledgeable person. Lily was on time and she guided me through the crowds with ease. I had already gone to another section of the Great Wall and this section is by far the better of the 2. Lily's english was perfect and I had tons of questions and she answered them all. I was traveling with a group and this was the "free day" but after spending time with Lily, I wanted to tour with her for the rest of the visit. :-) This tour will not disappoint and she even took me to a locals restaurant for lunch and the food was. . . . you guessed it, EXCELLENT! Thanks Lily for making Beijing a memorable experience for me!

If you have just one day to take a tour in Beijing, this is the one. You will hit all the big highlights. Make sure to get SHERRY! She is extremely knowledgeable. You will learn a lot about these sites, as well as the culture of China. I really appreciated that Sherry was so flexible with the schedule and was also willing to go the extra mile to help me with some additional questions I had. Make time for this tour -- you will be glad you did it!

This was the best tour ever! Linda was our tour guide. She was so knowledgeable, friendly and very professional. We loved the Mutianyu Great Wall less crowded, especially taking the ride down the Mutianyu Toboggan was a great bonus! Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City, so beautiful and with so much history. Linda took us for lunch, and it was the best Chinese food we have ever had. We highly recommend this tour and Linda as your tour guide.

My guide Susan was a star! She spoke fluent English and was extremely knowledgeable about the history and back stories of all the historic places in Beijing. She was very insightful as to what I was interested in and tailored the day to far exceed my expectations. She was an absolute delight to travel with and she made the tour a blast. I highly recommend this tour and strongly suggest if you want to truly have an amazing experience-ask for Susan.
