The itinerary for the day is as follows:
7:00 - 8:00 Hotel pick-up and transfer to Tiananmen Square
In the morning, your professional guide will wait for you in the hotel lobby, and then a comfortable chauffeur-driven minivan will transfer you to the Tiananmen Square.
8:00 - 11:30 Visit Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City
Start with a walk through the Tiananmen Square, and use your VIP line-jumping privilege to enter the 600-year-old imperial Forbidden City, the largest and the most intact imperial palace complex of the Ming and Qing Courts (1368 - 1911 AD).
Note: Since the Forbidden City is closed on Mondays, we carefully choose the Summer Palace instead of Tiananmen Square & the Forbidden City if your travel date happens to meet Monday. Summer Palace is the largest and the best preserved royal garden in the world. It is a fantastic resort for travelers to admire the peaceful landscapes and magnificent architectures.
11:30 - 13:00 Drive to the Great Wall
During the 1.5-hour drive, your knowledgeable guide will share with you some historical facts and less-known titbits about the next spot - the Great Wall of China.
13:00 - 16:00 Explore Mutianyu Great Wall
As one of the best-preserved sections of China Great Wall, Mutianyu is popular for its distinctive watchtowers and breathtaking natural scenery. You will have plenty time to climb the wall and take nice photos. The histories and stories of this world wonder shared by your professional tour guide will make your Great Wall experience more interesting and unforgettable.
16:00 - 17:30 Drive back to downtown
It usually takes about one and a half hour to drive back to downtown Beijing. You can massage your legs gently and take a brief rest with your eyes closed in the car to recover from the fatigue of climbing the Great Wall.
17:30 - 17:50 Photo stop at Olympic Bird's Nest
On the way, we will drive by the National Stadium, also known as the Bird's Nest, where you can take some photos of its unique appearance.
17:50 - 18:30 Nanluoguxiang Hutong & Hotel Drop-off
Our last stop today is the lively Nanluoguxiang Hutong. With lots of boutique shops, cafes, a few pubs and restaurants, this hutong area is a great place to spend some time leisurely to feel the charms of old alleyways in Beijing, and also try the local food and snacks for your dinner. If you are interested, you can explore it at your own pace and return to the hotel by yourself. Your tour guide will offer you directions for getting back to the hotel.
If you prefer not to tour the Hutong area, your guide will take you back to the hotel after dropping the others off there.
