From $277 per personFree Inquiry
Day01 Visit Tiananmen Square, Forbidden City, Jingshan Park, Temple of Heaven
Tiananmen Square
In the morning, you will be picked up by your private guide and driver at the lobby of your hotel in the downtown area. Your 3 days Great Wall tour starts from the remarkable and world's largest urban square - the Tiananmen Square,  which is located in the center of the Beijing City. To the north of the square is the well-preserved imperial palace complex, the Forbidden City. Passing over the Golden Water Bridge, you will enter that ancient palace, full of royal history. At least two hours will be spent there to explore the central axis along with other main palaces and the imperial garden. Lunch is left on your own to taste whatever you like for Beijing foods. Surely, your guide is glad to make recommendations.  

In the afternoon, continue your private sightseeing tour to visit a beautiful royal landscaped garden - the Jingshan Park. The hill inside offers a glorious panorama of the Forbidden City. Then, you will be escorted to visit the Temple of Heaven, which was initially built for the emperors of the Ming and Qing Dynasties (1368 - 1912 AD) to worship the God of Heaven for peace and harvests, and now it is also a large popular park for the locals to exercise and have fun.
Day02 Visit Badaling and Mutianyu Great Wall Sections, Have a Photo Stop at Juyongguan
Great Wall
At the appointed time in the morning, you will meet your guide at the lobby of your hotel. Then after a drive for about 1.5 hours, you will reach the Badaling Great Wall, one of the most famous sections of the Great Wall. Upon arrival, you will hike on the wall for 1-2 hours to experience the steepness of the wall and appreciate the charming scenery around.

Then, we will drive towards another famous section of the Great Wall - Mutianyu. On the way to Mutianyu, we will stop at the Juyongguan Great Wall and leave you some free time for photo-taking. There, you could make your own arrangement for lunch. You are kindly suggested to have a full breakfast at the hotel this morning as restaurants near the site are not that good.

In the afternoon, we will continue on and visit the Mutianyu section. You can choose to take a round-way cable car, or a chairlift up and a toboggan down the wall. We will cover the expense for you. Hiking on the wall, you could compare the differences of the Great Wall sections and further explore this amazing wonder.
Day03 Visit Summer Palace, Lama Temple, Hutong Alleys
Forbidden City
Today, your guide and driver will pick you up from your hotel in the morning and transfer you to the Summer Palace, which is the largest and best-preserved royal garden in China with amazing landscapes and exquisite architecture. The next stop is the Lama Temple. As the national center of Lama Administration in the Qing Dynasty (1636 - 1912 AD), it has been perfectly preserved. By visiting it, you will have a preliminary understanding and cognition of the Lama Culture.

People say that the real culture of Beijing is hidden in the Hutongs and courtyards, so we schedule the last stop of your 3 days Great Wall tour to the Hutong area. You will travel through the old alleys by rickshaw and pay a visit to a Hutong family to see the traditional courtyard and interact with the locals. We believe you will fully understand this sentiment. After the Hutong trip, your guide and driver will transfer you back to the hotel and bid farewell. We wish you a good onward journey!

As your schedule is Osaka - Beijing - Seoul, you are eligible to apply for 72-hour visa free or 144-hour visa free in Beijing. If you would like to stay 3 nights in Beijing, 144-hour visa free is a good choice.

According to the policy, you can enjoy visa free transit in Beijing for two ways if your route is US-Beijing-Nepal-Beijing-US. However, it can only be confirmed when you pass the immigration inspection at the airport.

As I know, you are eligible for 144-hour visa free if your cruise will go to a third region other than USA and China.
