Detailed Itinerary
7:00 - 8:00 Hotel Pick-up & Transfer to Tiananmen Square
In the morning, your professional guide will wait for you in the hotel lobby, and then a comfortable chauffeur-driven car will transfer you to the Tiananmen Square.
  • The pickup time is between 7:00 and 8:00. Your tour guide will confirm with you the exact time one day before the tour starts. If you haven't received the pick-up message before 20:00, contact your exclusive travel consultant anytime. We have your back 24 hours.
8:00 - 11:30 Visit Tiananmen Square & Forbidden City
Let's start this Beijing day tour from the city's core area - the Tiananmen Square. Follow your guide to take a morning walk around the largest city square in the world, and you can shoot distant view photos of the brilliant landmark buildings such as the Monument to the People's Heroes and the Great Hall of the People.

Walk through the Gate of Heavenly Peace with the great Chairman Mao's portrait on it, we come to this morning's highlight - the 600-year-old Forbidden City - the largest and the most intact imperial palace complex of the Ming and Qing Courts (1368 - 1911 AD).
The majestic Forbidden City has 9,999 rooms! Which are the most essential and interesting parts? Our veteran itinerary designer carefully selects the top 10 palaces for you, including major ones on the traditional central axis, and some special chambers on the east and west wings.
Follow our knowledgeable guide to have a deeper appreciation of the Forbidden City
11:30 - 13:30 Drive to Mutianyu Great Wall
During the 2 hours' driving, the knowledgeable guide will share with you some historical facts and less-known titbits about the next spot - the Great Wall of China.
  • During the drive, we considerately provide everyone with two bottles of drinking water and small local refreshments for every member, which gives you a bite of Beijing.
13:30 - 16:00 Explore Mutianyu Great Wall
All the Great Wall sights are located far from the city center and lack decent restaurants. We have no detours to the restaurants and leave you enough time on the Great Wall to make the most out of your time.
As one of the best-preserved sections of China Great Wall, Mutianyu is popular for its distinctive watchtowers and breathtaking natural scenery. You will have plenty time to climb the wall and take nice photos. The histories and stories of this world wonder shared by your professional tour guide will make your Great Wall experience more interesting and unforgettable.
  • Wise lunch suggestion: Your guide will show you Subway and Burger King at the foot of the Great Wall. The best way we recommend is to buy some takeout on your own and have a picnic on the Great Wall, which could be an exciting experience.
Admire the picturesque landscape of China Great Wall
16:00 - 17:30 Drive Back to Downtown
It usually takes about one and a half hour to drive back downtown Beijing. You can massage your legs gently and take a brief rest with your eyes closed in the car to recover from the fatigue of climbing the Great Wall.
17:30 - 17:50 Photo Stop at Olympic Bird's Nest
On the way, we will drive by the National Stadium, also known as the Bird's Nest, where you can take some photos of its unique appearance.
Have a photo stop at the Bird's Nest and view its distinctive appearance
17:50 - 18:30 Transfer Back to Your Hotel

    Visiting the Great Wall has been on my bucket list for over 20 year and with the help of TravelChinaGuide, I was able to check off one more item!! I was extremely impressed with the knowledge and attention to detail of the tour guide, Serena...she was truly a professional!! The small group size made the outing just that much more enjoyable...I felt like the tour guide was talking to me directly the entire time!

    My tour consisted mainly of Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City, and the Great Wall...it was a fantastic day. If I had time, I also wanted to tour the Terracotta Soldiers and would have absolutely chosen TravelChinaGuide!!

    We had a very nice small group with Mr. Rocky as our tour guide.
    the day tour was informative and efficient, unfortunately we had a bad day with rain and heavy fog on the great wall.
    our recommendation for the management to prepare an extra attractive site to visit in a day like this because you cant spent 2-3 hours on the wall in such weather...
    Rocky was great and helped us with other issues regarding our stay even he didn't have to.
    we recommend this day tour to the forbidden city and badaling wall.

    I would recommend this tour. Our guide Linda was great very friendly, great English and easy to communicate with. We had a lot of fun with her and enjoyed the day immensely. Linda made our day special to remember. A tour is the only way to see attractions and we cant believe how much we saw in a day!

    We made the mistake of doing one self guided and wouldn't do again. We also did another tour with this company which I will review separately.

    Thanks Linda we hope to see you again next time you made our day very enjoyable.

    We had an awesome experience with my tour guide, Vicky and the the driver including my travel consultant Vera. We didn’t expect very long process to get cleared from the China airport as a no visa visitor, so We were pretty late for our scheduled your.

    Luckily, my travel consultant responded my message at 6am on Sunday, so I rearranged my time and the pick-up place instantly with reasonable extra payment, so We were picked up at the airport by the time we finished all the processes including our breakfast.
    The entire team was so accommodating with our unexpected situation, so We were able to finish our trip nicely.

    The car was very clean and comfortable. The guide was very enthusiastic to share as much as she could. She even brought us Chinese sneakers bar for our lunch due to our tight schedule. The travel consultant followed through very well to the end.

    We couldn’t have asked more. We had a great tour and the experience.
