Overview

Guangzhou is one of China’s most modern cities as well as harbouring a fascinating ancient history, and this full-day tour explores both sides. Visit the Ancient Quarry of Lotus Mountain, used by the Han dynasty, admire traditional handicrafts, tuck into a typical Cantonese lunch (included), and enjoy a sightseeing tour of Guangzhou.
  • Full-day tour of Guangzhou, including the Ancient Quarry of Lotus Mountain
  • Explore the 2,000-year-old Ancient Quarry of Lotus Mountain
  • Enjoy a traditional Cantonese lunch at a local restaurant
  • See Huacheng square, Canton Tower, and the Guangzhou Opera House on a sightseeing tour of Guangzhou
  • Great-value tour includes lunch, hotel pickup, and round-trip transport
Begin your day with pickup from your central Guangzhou hotel around 8.30am and soak up the scenery on the hour-long journey to the Ancient Quarry of Lotus Mountain.

On arrival, jump out to visit the ancient site, which was excavated during the Han dynasty, around 2,000 years ago. Take the time to explore both with and without your guide, admiring the dramatic landscape of red sandstone hills and snapping photos of the 131-foot (40-meter) Goddess of Mercy statue, made with 132 tons (120 tons) of bronze and 15 pounds (7 kilograms) of gold.

Break for lunch at a local restaurant and tuck into some tasty Cantonese-style cuisine, before driving back into the city around 2pm.

Back in Guangzhou, follow your guide to Huacheng Square, the buzzing centerpiece of Zhujiang New Town, and the heart of the modern city. Continue along the Pearl riverfront, stopping to admire striking landmarks such as the Canton Tower, Guangdong Museum and the futuristic Guangzhou Opera House, an architectural masterpiece by Zaha Hadid.

Finally, marvel over traditional Chinese arts and handicrafts with a visit to a local arts center, and perhaps purchase some souvenirs like jade jewelry, calligraphy art, or tea.

Your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel around 4pm.
