    Stop At: Tiananmen Square (Tiananmen Guangchang), West Changan Street, Dongcheng District, Beijing 100006 China

    After pickup from your Shanghai city centre hotel, transfer to the Shanghai airport for your flight to Beijing. When you arrive at Beijing airport, your local guide and driver will be waiting for you and will transport you by private, air-conditioned vehicle to begin your full-day tour of China’s capital.

    The first stop on your tour is Tian'anmen Square – framed by the Gate of Heavenly Peace with its portrait of Mao Zedong, Mao's Mausoleum, the Great Hall of the People and the National Museum. Hear an overview from your guide about China's communist history as you tour Tian'anmen's grounds, halls and monuments.

    Stop At: Forbidden City-The Palace Museum, No.4 Jingshanqian Street, Dongcheng District, Beijing 100009 China

    From here, enjoy a short walk to the Forbidden City and its Imperial Palace Museum, with a peek at each Chinese dynasty represented in four palatial halls.

Admire the maze of palaces, gardens and stunning courtyards as your guide informs you about China’s imperial history.

    Take in spectacular views surrounding the Mutianyu Great Wall, which stretches 3,370 miles (6,000 km) westward from the mountain ridges north of Beijing, and learn how the Great Wall of China was originally built more than 2,000 years ago to ward off Hun intruders from the north.
