Meet your guide and driver in your hotel lobby and head to the first stop on your Beijing sightseeing itinerary: Tiananmen Square. Learn about emblematic structures including the Great Hall of the People, the National Museum of China, Chairman Mao Memorial Hall (aka Mausoleum of Mao Zedong), and the Monument to the People's Heroes.
Passing through the Tiananmen Gate, visit the UNESCO-listed Forbidden City. See the Meridian Gate and explore multiple halls before exiting from the north gate. Then hop back inside your minivan for the 1.5-hour drive to the Mutianyu section of the Great Wall of China, another World Heritage site.
En route, stop for lunch at a local restaurant featuring Chinese dishes such as Kung Pao chicken, mushroom and pork onion pancakes, moo shu pork, sweet and sour pork or chicken, and more.
On arrival at Mutianyu, you can ascend by round-trip cable car, or take a chair lift up and toboggan down (included). Learn about this masterpiece of restoration, including 23 original-style watchtowers, and spend 1.5–2 hours at the wall before you are transferred back to your hotel in Beijing.
Note: Group size is limited to 12 people to ensure more personalized attention from your guide.
