Detailed Itinerary
Day 01: Airport Pick-up & Drive to Hotel
According to your flight schedule, your driver will greet you at the airport by holding a welcome sign with your name on it, and then drive to your own booked hotel in about one hour. The rest of the day is free for you to relax. This evening, your tour guide will inform you of the specific meeting time tomorrow. Have a good rest and store up enough energy for your Beijing group tour package.
Day 02: Visit Tiananmen Square, Forbidden City, Mutianyu Great Wall, Bird's Nest
This morning, your guide and driver will pick you up from your hotel at around 7:00-8:00. The first stop of this Beijing group tour package is the Tiananmen Square, where stand many important and landmark buildings. After around 30 minutes on the square, we will walk northward to the Forbidden City, which is the largest wooden palace complex in the world. You will be escorted to visit at least 9 palaces, including the palaces where the ancient emperors dealt with the state affairs and where they lived with their families.

Afterwards, we will drive for around 1.5 hours to the Mutianyu Great Wall, one of the best-preserved and best-known Great Wall sections with pretty breathtaking scenery. With less tourists there compared with the Badaling section, it is also a good destination for a Great Wall tour at ease. We will leave you at least two hours to visit the Great Wall.

Since there are lack of decent restaurants near the site, you're suggested to have a hearty breakfast in the morning, and have a simple meal for lunch at the foot of the wall. It is at your own expense. After that, we will drive back to the downtown Beijing and make a photo stop for you to view the Olympic Bird's Nest and Water Cube, which are the main venues of the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games.

The last stop of today's trip is the bustling Nanluoguxiang area. If you like, you can get off there to go shopping, enjoy local delicacies or experience the nightlife, and return to the hotel by yourself afterwards. Your tour guide will provide you the directions before leaving. If you are not interested in it, we will take you back to the hotel directly.
Day 03: Visit Temple of Heaven, Hutong Alleys, Lama Temple, Summer Palace
In the morning, your guide and driver will wait for you at your hotel lobby at around 8:00. Today's first stop is the Temple of Heaven, where ancient emperors worshipped the Heaven and prayed for harvests. Next we will visit the Hutong area by rickshaw, during which your guide will accompany you to visit a traditional Beijing courtyard, Siheyuan.

This 3 days mini group Beijing tour starts at 7:00 - 8:00 every morning, not in the afternoon. As a result, we suggest you take the tour the second day. For the visit to the Forbidden City, you will spend 2 - 3 hours. The meals are not included in this tour, but our guides are pleased to recommend some good restaurants for you if you need. Please feel free to contact us if you are interested in this tour. Thanks you.
