Description

This two day Beijing private tour combo package is ideal for first time comers. It covers all the must-sees in Beijing, like the Great Wall at Mutianyu, a less touristy and crowded section of the Wall; Summer Palace, the largest and best-preserved imperial garden and palace in China where the emperor spent their Summer time; Temple of Heaven, a Taoist temple where Ming and Qing emperors performed their ritual ceremonies. The other two must-sees are the Forbidden City and Tian’anmen Square, the Imperial Palace which was off-limits to commoners and the largest city-center square in the world respectively. Hutong, the old and narrow city lane is also considered as a place shouldn’t be missed for most travelers, and you will see the old part of Beijing with hundreds years of history there. The tour guide will also recommend some restaurant where you can enjoy the iconic food in Beijing, the Peking Roast Duck if you like.

Day 1 - Tiananmen Square - Forbidden City - Great Wall at Mutianyu

Meet your guide in your hotel lobby at 8 a.m. to get your tour started. First up on your agenda is Tiananmen Square, one of the world's biggest city-center squares. See some of the iconic buildings in Beijing, such as the Front Gate, Chairman Mao's Mausoleum, Monument to the People's heroes, Great Hall of the People, Tiananmen Gate, and the National Museum of China.

Proceed north to see the Forbidden City, the place where the Ming and Qing Emperors resided for more than 500 years. It is one of the largest and best-preserved Imperial palaces in the world.

After a lunch break, head over to the Great Wall of China at Mutianyu. Here you'll go on a 1.5-to-3-hour hike along the less crowded portion of the wall. You could choose to take the cable car for both ways, or take the chairlift up and toboggan down. 

Day 2 - Temple of Heaven - Hutong - Summer Palace

Pick up at 8 a.m. at your hotel to see the Temple of Heaven where the Ming and Qing emperors performed their ritual ceremonies. Morning is the best time to see the local senior doing exercise, practicing Taichi, playing Shuttlecock, doing ground calligraphy, as well as singing and dancing. 

Continue on to explore  a hutong, an old and narrow city alleyway. Take a rickshaw, and visit a local family. Learn more about Beijing locals from both the family and your guide.  

After lunch, drive to see one of the largest and best preserved imperial gardens in China, the Summer Palace. Inside, you will take a boat to see the Suzhou Street, where the eunuch and concubine used to disguise as sellers for the emperor to enjoy shopping as a commoner.
