Friendly Travel Tips

  • Our free pick-up service is available for hotels within the 4th Ring Road of the city. In case your hotel is beyond the range of location, or you take a layover tour directly from Beijing Airport to the Great Wall, there might be an additional transfer fee. Your travel consultant will discuss this with you.
  • Except for Chinese official holidays and the summer vacation from July 1 to August 31, the Forbidden City is usually closed on Mondays. If you happen to visit it on Monday, our travel consultant will recommend other sightworthy spots to meet your interests.
  • Most sights in our capital city like Forbidden City, Great Wall, Summer Palace, and Temple of Heaven, are rather big, which demand a fair amount of walking. We kindly suggest you wear comfortable walking shoes and lightweight clothes.
  • These private Beijing day trips with English-speaking guides are quite flexible and can be tailored to meet any of your interests. Our experienced guide is ready to fit your travel pace, deliver splendid explanations and answer your questions on history, culture, architecture and many others. You can also contact your travel consultant at any time should you need assistance during the trip.

    I had a superb Beijing day trip to Forbidden City.

    The guide was knowledgeable about every scenic spot we visited and something about real life in Beijing. Her explanation was so attractive that it drew our attention all the time. I really enjoyed this trip and left many joyful memories.

    Lily, a Chinese northeasterner, was rather enthusiastic and interesting! She had 7-year experience of being a tour guide and I was really satisfied with her professionalism! I had a good time with her on this short Beijing day tour.

    She knew well about Beijing’s history, culture, and highlights like Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City, and Temple of Heaven...

    Also, she advised us to taste local famous dishes, the Stir-fried Pork Liver and Quick-scalded Tripe. Not bad! In short, this tour was fantastic with Lily! ... More

    Thanks to TCG for their great work in organizing the Beijing day tour for me. Everything ran smoothly.

    I especially appreciated the guide, Lily. She was very patient when we asked about the places we visited and other things like present living in Beijing. I'd like to recommend this tour to all my friends who want to have a glimpse of Beijing!
