Your private guide and driver will pick you up at your own booked hotel at around 08:00 in the morning, and then drive to the heart of Beijing City to start your Beijing Badaling Great Wall tour from the Tiananmen Square - the world's largest urban square. After strolling around 30 minutes in the square for nice photos, we will head northward to the Forbidden City - the royal palace where 24 emperors of the Ming and Qing dynasties (1368-1911) lived with their families. To avoid waiting in long lines, we will book the entrance tickets online in advance. You will enter the palace by presenting your passport directly.

Lunch is on your own arrangement and your tour guide is glad to provide some advice. After lunch, we will take an about 1.5 hours' ride to the Badaling Great Wall, where you will appreciate the magnificent Great Wall scenery as well as learn more about this ancient military project.

Tour Highlights
Tiananmen Square
The Tiananmen Square is located at the central axis of Beijing City, where you can appreciate many outstanding buildings. In the center of the square stands the Monument to People's Heroes, whose reliefs tell the vital events during the modern China history (1840-1949), and the Chairman Mao Memorial Hall where the remains of this great leader is preserved. At the northern end stands the Tiananmen Tower which used to be the front door of the imperial city during the Ming and Qing dynasties. In the south of the square, you can find the Zhengyang Gate and the Qianmen Arrow Tower, both with a history of around 600 years.

Forbidden City
The Forbidden City is the largest and best-preserved wooden building complex in the world, which served as the home of 24 emperors during the Ming and Qing dynasties. The palace consists of the Outer Court and the Inner Court, where the emperors handled the national affairs and lived with their families respectively. The past time has left the Forbidden City with over 70 imposing palaces and more than 9,000 rooms, as well as millions of rare historical items including paintings, calligraphy works, ceramics, bronze wares, and clocks. Your private guide will provide a full introduction for your better understanding of these.

    The tour guide’s service was very good all the way, and we had a reasonable schedule of Beijing Badaling Great Wall with Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square.

    We spent a good time in every scenic spot and the wonderful explanations helped us to learn more about Chinese history and culture. In general, this one-day trip was enjoyable and fruitful!

    Our guide is a real Beijinger, extremely familiar with every place. The introduction of the history and culture was wonderful, easy to understand without neglecting focus. I will find her as my guide again for my next Beijing tour with my family.

    From the first moment we met the guide till the last moment we left this Beijing day tour was perfect. Our guide Lily was amazing and she went beyond my expectations in terms of hospitality and kindness and service. We were given a huge amount of excellent information about the country and both historical and general facts of the Mutianyu Great Wall and Forbidden City. I was willing to recommend your company and your package tours to everyone!

    The first visit to Beijing with my grandmother exceeded my expectations. I was a bit nervous booking a big trip like ours entirely from a service found on the Internet. But TravelChianGuide did a good job in all aspects. This Beijing day tour to Tiananmen Square, Forbidden City and Mutianyu Great Wall was something to cherish. And the Forbidden City was definitely one of the most majestic buildings I had visited. Our guide Tina was very nice and took many excellent photos for us. Thank you very much! ... More

    The one-day Beijing Badaling Great Wall tour was fulfilling and interesting! We spent all our energy climbing to No. 8 North Tower to enjoy the panoramic view of the winding Badaling, so STUNNING!

    The lunch recommended by our guide was pretty good and we enjoyed the Beijing’s snacks like pea cake. Besides the Great Wall, we also visited the Forbidden City. The guide’s explanation was fantastic and we were all fascinated.

    A wonderful Beijing day tour! I was so glad to travel with our Candy and other group members from different countries. Candy was friendly and easy to get along with. She gave us very interesting and extensive explanations and also helped parents to look after their kids. We had great fun together and really didn’t want to end this trip. I will certainly be back and book with TCG again and hope to have Candy as my guide.

    If not we had found and contact TravelChinaGuide online, we couldn’t have experienced such a good Beijing day tour! We’d like to express our gratitude to your fantastic service and promote responses to our inquiry. The Tiananmen Square Forbidden City and Badaling Great Wall were impressive and grand enough. Maybe because it was a weekend, the Forbidden City was full of visitors and we barely move forward at some exhibitions…

    We were extremely happy with the one day Beijing trip. It was so nice to have all the details taken care of for us from a private consultant to the hotel pick-up service and a professional English-speaker guide. We thought it was an excellent trip with a very good price in relation to the services that were offered. Strongly recommend!

    We were three persons that had one day to spend in Beijing before we should continue to our final destination in China and to make the most of this day we used TravelChinaGuide.
    The TravelChinaGuide helped us to arrange a tour to the forbidden city and after that we went to the great wall of china.
    They were very helpfull with the arrangement before we left home and came up with a good solution despite the short time we had for the tour.
    We were picked up directly at the airport when we arrived and went direct to the forbidden city to start the tour.
    We had an excellent guide that had a great knowledge of the chinese culture and history, so she made the experience even more interesting.
    We also had a good car and driver that was with us all day and took us safely between the places we visited.
    The guide helped us through the whole day with all practical things such as lunch and were to buy some souvenirs, she even surprised us with an extra stop to taste some local tea.
    After this wonderful day we were taken to our hotel and the guide even helped us to check in, so the service and overall experience was excellent and i can recommend to use TravelChinaGuide.

    We arrived in Beijing in the Chinese summer holidays, so there were so many tourists in every spot. Thanks to the reasonable arrangement of our guide, we had no need to queue up and could enjoy our journey. This Beijing day tour was very great!
