    What to Expect
    Depart from your centrally located Beijing hotel and climb aboard a comfortable, air-conditioned coach. Arrive at your first historical highlight, Tian’anmen Square and gain fascinating insight into modern Chinese history as your guide offers information on the Cultural Revolution of Chairman Mao. Explore the grounds on a comprehensive tour and see impressive monuments to The People’s Heroes and Chairman Mao. Gaze at the Tian’anmen Tower and marvel at the elaborate decoration of the Great Hall of the People. 

    Next, venture to the legendary Forbidden City to explore a cultural icon. In the four palatial halls reside representations of every Chinese dynasty in history; plunge into the rich history of each family as your guide offers an informative and insightful narration of the landmark. Revitalize with a flavorsome and fulfilling lunch then head to the celestial Temple of Heaven to see a 15th-century structure that pays homage to the Ming and Qing dynasties. Hear about how the temple was a center of prayer and sacrificial ceremonies then conclude your authentic cultural experience with some traditional Chinese tea.
