Beijing’s rich heritage sites, brilliant culture, booming development, as well as hospitable local people will bring you an unforgettable travel experience.
Day 1 Arrival in Beijing, Visit the Temple of Heaven
Upon your arrival in Beijing today, your private English-speaking guide and experienced driver will welcome you in the Arrival Hall of the airport after you reclaim your luggage and clear Customs. Then a comfortable private drive will take you to downtown Beijing to check in at a well-selected hotel.

After a short break in the hotel, you will be taken to visit the Temple of Heaven, an inviolable altar where the ancient emperors offer sacrifices to the God of Heaven to pray for good harvests. For this reason, different from the yellow hipped roofs of most royal buildings, the roof of the altar in the Temple of Heaven is round in blue which is same as the sky. Now, it has become a large park covered by tall trees, where many locals come to spend their leisure time, like doing exercises, participating in fun activities, or enjoying family picnic time.

Beijing is the most important transportation hub in China for both air and rail. Beijing Daxing International Airport as well as Beijing Capital International Airport connect over 223 destinations from all over the world. Visitors from Hong Kong, USA, UK, Australia, Singapore, France, Spain, India, Netherland, Germany, Japan, Dubai, etc, can take direct flights to Beijing easily, which makes this 4-day Beijing tour suitable for most travelers.

Day 2 Visit Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City, the Jingshan Park & the Summer Palace
Today, your guide and driver will pick you up from the hotel at 09:00 and then transfer you to the center of Beijing to visit the world's largest urban square, the Tiananmen Square, where many constructions of historical and monumental significance stand. It is also the place where to hold the important national events, such as the Founding Ceremony of China, the grand military parade and the daily flag-raising ceremony. After strolling for around 30 minutes here, you will walk for a few minutes through the Chang'an Avenue and come to the well-known Forbidden City, which is home to 24 emperors during the Ming and Qing dynasties (1368 - 1911). Common people were denied entry in ancient times, hence the name. Your guide will accompany you to see a series of palaces, courtyards and lots of precious historical relics here for around 2 to 3 hours. Afterwards, we will come to the nearby Jingshan Park. Once on the top of the hill (about 43 meters/ 141 feet high), you will have a full spectacular view of the Forbidden City with its golden rooftops sparkling in the sunlight.

In the afternoon, we will continue the visit to the Summer Palace, which was the summer resort for the royal families in ancient times, with delicate gardening design and amazing natural landscapes. Take your time to enjoy the stunning views here and the classic constructions and elegant sceneries will definitely give you a memorable aftertaste.

Day 3 Visit Mutianyu Great Wall & the Bird's Nest, Have a Hutong Tour by Rickshaw
This morning, we will travel to Mutianyu to visit one of the greatest man-made projects on earth, the Great Wall, which is definitely the highlight of your 4 days Beijing tour. On the dragon-like winding wall, you will not only appreciate the well-preserved defense project, such as the beacon towers lying at some advantageous strategic forts, but enjoy the fantastic views of the meandering wall stretching far into the distance. A round-way cable car has been included, which could save your energy and leave you more time to hike on the wall. While, if you're thrill-loving, you could also take the chairlift up and the toboggan down the wall. You decide which to take and your guide will make arrangements.

Around noon, as there is no decent restaurant nearby, you can have some fast food at Subway or Burger King at your own expense. Alternatively, you could take some food and have a picnic on the wall, which is surely a special experience.

After lunch, we will drive back to downtown Beijing and make a photo stop for you at the Bird's Nest, namely the Olympic National Stadium, which held both the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics and 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics. Then, you will have a Hutong tour by rickshaw to travel through the narrow alleys and experience the soul of old Beijing. Different from the Forbidden City, Hutongs represent and show the lives of the ordinary people in Beijing. A Hutong family visit will also be arranged for you to see the traditional courtyard house, where several generations live together in different wings, and learn about their lifestyles.

Day 4 Visit the Lama Temple, the Temple of Confucius and the Imperial Academy, Departure from Beijing
Today, we will first head to visit the Lama Temple, also known as the Yonghe Lamasery, which is the largest and best-preserved Tibetan Buddhist monastery in Beijing. With a history of more than 300 years, the buildings in the temple are still in good conditions. Although there are many prayers and tourists every day, you could still find your inner peace in the temple.

Across the street, we will come to the Temple of Confucius, the second largest Confucian Temple in China which was built at the beginning of the 14th century. There you will enjoy the beautiful complex as well as listen to the story of Confucius. Its neighbor is Guozijian Museum (Imperial Academy), which was the highest institution for academic research and learning during the Yuan, Ming and Qing dynasties (1271 - 1911).

Your sightseeing trip will come to the end here. Your guide and driver will transfer you to the airport for your onward flight. Although it is a short stay in Beijing, we believe the highlight attractions as well as our dedicated service will leave a deep impression on you. Hope we still have a chance to serve you next time.

    Thank you very much for a great job in organizing a 4 days Beijing tour that we will never forget. The itinerary is well-planed. Our guide Tina was very dedicated and has a great sense of humor. The hotel was also very clean and comfortable. Highly recommend!

    The 4 days Beijing tour was wonderful from the beginning to the end. Sara was our guide and explained the attractions in detail. Every day was a new adventure and we were thrilled to see the Great Wall and Forbidden City as well as places that we had not heard of before our visit. We stayed at the Hotel New Otani Chang Fu Gong. It had a great environment and offered excellent services. The meals were quite good. Sara was particularly attentive to our food desires and made an effort to fit the spiciness to our tastes. We thought the journey was an excellent value! ... More

    A joyful 4 days Beijing trip! My mom and I had a blast! The guide Selina was experienced, responsible and she organized this trip properly. She took great trouble to look after us and explained every spot in detail. We became good friends through 4 days’ tour. The most impressive spots for us were Forbidden City, Mutianyu Great Wall, and the Summer Palace. From the wonderful interpretation of Selina, we learned about the traditional architecture and history of Beijing. Thanks again! I am happy to recommend TCG and the guide Selina to you! ... More
