Lama and Confucius Temples - Great guide
Oct 2019
Our guide, Lily, was excellent. She was extremely knowledgeable and went out of her way to make our experience memorable. Lily answered all our questions and made the tour really interesting. She picked us up at hotel on time and gave us as much time as we needed to see everything we wanted. She even got us to the Confucius Temple in time to see the afternoon dance performance which was beautiful. We would highly recommend Lily and this tour if you want to see more of Beijing than just the Forbidden City, Great Wall, and Summer Palace.

Hi,
Our guide, Lisa, met us at our hotel lobby, when expected for this half day tour. The trip to the temple was short, which was a pity as the car (Buick Minivan) was very comfortable and air conditioned. In that time, Lisa gave us some historical background and a schedule for the tour. Her English was excellent in both delivery and her understanding of us. When we arrived at the Lama temple (Yonghe Temple) , she organised the tickets and guided through into the gardens. This place dates to the Qing Dynasty and was the residence of Prince Yong prior to his ascension to the imperial throne. It is still a working monastery and temple. There is some wonderful examples of Han Chinese as well as Tibetan art works.

From there we travelled to the Temple of Confucius on Guozijian Street near the Imperial Academy. This is much older than the lama temple and Lisa tells a nice story about the Cypress trees and their ability to sniff out corrupt officials. :) At the time of our visit we got to see a dance performance that portrayed harmony and happiness. Finally, we walked to the Imperial Academy and its grounds. In both places, the use of English on many of the exhibits is very good.

At the end of the tour we could opt to be returned to our hotel or to some other attraction. Lisa named a few and we chose to visit the Drum and Bell towers in Xicheng District.

Why did I like it? I liked the tour because it gave us a glimpse of imperial life outside of the forbidden city tourist attractions. The Lama temple is a museum and still a place of worship so you can witness ancient customs and rituals.

Who might like this tour? If you want to see another side to the imperial system of china outside of the forbidden city and want to learn the importance of Confucius and how the academy was used to educate the brightest minds for imperial service then this is great. It is easy and relaxed and thoroughly enjoyable.

I thought very highly of Lisa and the service provided by the tour operator. She helped with ideas for other things we did on our trip and helped out with dining recommendations. First class service. We enjoyed the experience so much we got Lisa to take us to the Summer Palace on a day we had not planned to do anything.
