From $789 per person Free Inquiry
Day 1 Arrival in Beijing
Upon your flight landing at Beijing Airport, our guide will meet you at the Arrival Hall. Then we will transfer you to the reserved hotel with a private van and help you check in. After that, you may rest at the hotel or go nearby to explore the city on your own.

With a history of more than 2000 years, Beijing is a city with both traditional charm and modern appeal. It will be also the first city ever to host both the 2008 Summer Olympics and 2022 Winter Olympics.

Meals: No meals, advice freely available
Accommodation: Pentahotel Beijing
Day 2 Beijing
Our clients visiting Badaling Great Wall
Your private Beijing Olympic tour starts from Tiananmen Square, then turn to the adjoining Forbidden City, a must-do when you are in Beijing. Apart from the impressive architecture, the Forbidden City also has a very fascinating history attached. Our guide will give you detailed explication and make the history come alive to you. An a la carte lunch (valued at CNY150.00 per person and included in our price) is served at a very nice restaurant. In the afternoon, you will feel the scent of Old Beijing by taking the rickshaw through the old Hutong alleys. 

Meals: Western buffet breakfast, A la carte lunch
Day 3 Beijing
Bird's Nest
Today we will focus on the main competition venues of 2008 Olympic Games, some of which will also be used for the 2022 Winter Olympics. After visiting the beautiful Summer Palace, an ancient imperial summer retreat, you will go to the Beijing Olympic Park, where you will visit the Olympic National Stadium (Bird's Nest). Remarkably, it hosted the Opening and Closing Ceremonies, athletic events, and football final of the 2008 Summer Olympics. You will enter the stadium to see its interior structure. In the large park, you will also see the unique appearances of Aquatics Center (Water Cube) and the newly built Olympic Tower. Photos can be snapped afar. They make for good photos, especially at sunset.

Meals: Western buffet breakfast
Day 4 Beijing - Zhangjiakou
Grassland Sky Road, Zhangjiakou
After breakfast, we will take you to visit the Sacred Way first. You will have a leisure walk along the path with animal and ancient official statues on either side. We believe that China Great Wall should be on the bucket list of all travelers. To complete this one, we arrange the Badaling Great Wall for you today. Please wear a pair of comfortable shoes as there are a lot of steps on the Great Wall. We also suggest you have an ample breakfast at the hotel, because restaurants nearby the site are in low quality and we do not arrange lunch today, you can have some light fast food by yourself. After that, we will continue our Beijing Olympic tour to Zhangjiakou, bordering Beijing to the southeast. This city will host some of the events at the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics. After about one hour' driving, you will arrive at Chongli County in Zhangjiakou. Our guide will help you check in at the hotel and you will stay one night here. 

Meals: Western buffet breakfast
Accommodation: Montefontaine Holiday Hotel
Day 5 Zhangjiakou - Beijing
Dajing Gate, Zhangjiakou
This morning, you will visit the Secrete Garden Ski Resort, which is chosen as the competition area for snow sports in 2022 Beijing Winter Olympic Games. It is said that more than 20 golden medals will be awarded here in 2022. All the charge occurred in the resort is on your own and lunch is also on your own arrangement. After having lunch, we will start to drive along the famous Grassland Sky Road, a Chinese "US 66 Route" and take in the beautiful unspoiled landscape of vast grassland, deep valley, meandering river, wild sheep and cattle at the roadside, horses grazing, and high mountains in the distance. It's like appreciating a long sightseeing scroll painting. Take your camera and capture the beauty. After that, we will transfer you to visit the Dajing Gate, one of the four famous gates of China Great Wall. The other three are Shanhaiguan Pass, Juyongguan Pass and Jiayuguan Pass. Then your Zhangjiakou tour from Beijing ends as we will drive back to Beijing. Upon your arrival in Beijing, check in the hotel again.

Meals: Western buffet breakfast
Accommodation: Pentahotel Beijing
Day 6 Departure from Beijing
If your flight time permits, we will arrange you to visit the Temple of Heaven this morning. It is a large beautiful park consisting of a group of ancient sacrificial buildings. The best known is the three-storey pagoda, the Hall of Prayer for Good Harvest (Qiniandian). If you are interested in local people's daily life, you can arrive early morning when there are a lot of people dancing, singing and exercising. Afterwards, we will transfer you to the airport and see you off there. We hope that you have enjoyed this Beijing Olympic tour with us!

Even if just a connection it counts against you. Hong Kong cannot be the country you both enter and exit China from.

Leaving China by bus or train to Mongolia may not work for the 144h visa-free transit, which regulates that the only land/rail port for this policy is Beijing West Railway Station. So you may choose to fly there, then enjoy the visa waiver.
