Your half- or full-day tour starts with pickup from your hotel. Step into your comfortable private vehicle and set off to see the city’s local attractions and historic sites.
A half-day independent tour takes you to top destinations within Beijing. Visit the Summer Palace, Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square, or explore the hutongs
(old alleyways lined with traditional buildings) on foot or by pedicab. If you’ve selected a full-day independent tour, you can also drive out of the city limits to the Great Wall, where you can climb the steps, marvel at the fortress-like towers and enjoy panoramic views of the scenery.
