Tour Highlights
Tiananmen Square
The Tiananmen Square is located at the central axis of Beijing City. You can appreciate outstanding buildings during the 30-40 minutes' visit there. In the center of the square stand the Monument to People's Heroes with reliefs telling vital events during the modern China history (1840 - 1949), and the Chairman Mao Memorial Hall where the remains of this great leader is preserved. The Tiananmen Tower is at its northern end and it used to be the front door of the imperial city during the Ming and Qing dynasties. You can also find Zhengyang Gate and Qianmen Arrow Tower, both with a history of around 600 years, in the south of the square.

Forbidden City
The Forbidden City is the largest and the best-preserved wooden palace complex in the world. 24 emperors during the Ming and Qing dynasties had lived there. The palace consists of the Outer Court and the Inner Court. The Outer Court was for emperors to handle national affairs while the Inner Court served as the living place for the imperial family. The past time has left the palace 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. Our private guide will tell you vivid background stories to let you have a deeper impression.
A happy memory at the majestic Forbidden City
Badaling Great Wall
The Badaling Great Wall is the most essential and representative section of the Great Wall of China. It has attracted numerous visitors from home and abroad every year including more than 400 world's celebrities like President Nixon, President Reagan, and Mrs. Thatcher. Standing on the ramparts, you can see the wall resembling a yellow giant dragon winding along the rolling mountain ranges. There are 12 watchtowers lining along the northern section and 7 towers along the other part. The No. 8 North Tower occupies the highest position and you can have a full view of Badaling there.

    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!

    I brought my son to climb the Badaling Great Wall in August. Although the weather was very hot and there were so many tourists, we were very excited, especially my son. His energy was better than me, and he always encouraged me to climb the top. Fantastic!

    The tour guide provided us with good service, and she could look after every person in our small group. Our itinerary arrangement was very reasonable though the time was limited. We visited Tiananmen Square, Forbidden City, Badaling Great Wall in one day! We also enjoyed the delicious local food after the tour. The Beijing day trip was very satisfying!
