Tour Description

This full day tour of Beijing will give you a very complete and well rounded experience in the capital to learn about its rich past as well as modern life.

First, start with a tour of Tiananmen Square which continues to serve as a meeting place for the locals as well as site of political and cultural demonstrations. Surrounding Tiananmen Square are various important buildings such as Tiananmen Tower, the Monument to People's Heroes, the Great Hall of the People, the National Museum of China, and Chairman Mao's Mausoleum. Step into the Forbidden City then. Home to 24 emperors of Ming and Qing dynaties, the imperial complex is simply stunning and is the most impressive examples of Chinese construction with countless halls, gardens, pavilions, exhibitions, collections, and galleries of very rare and precious relics from the royal eras.

Take a fine meal at a local restaurant and in the aftenoon visit a local Beijing hutong which is where many traditional families are still found. Although many hutong neighborhoods are being razed to make room for modern constructions and living spaces, the ones that continue to survive provide a rewarding look into a lifestyle and city staple that has since survived centuries of history. Your guide will introduce you to a local family and also explain the various details of hutong life, leading you through the historic alleyways the entire time.
