Day 1 Arrival in Beijing
Upon arrival at the Beijing International Airport, please retrieve your luggage and clear Customs. Our tour guide will greet you outside the Customs area and escort you to our selected downtown hotel in a private drive.

Rest for a while, then the guide will accompany with you to have a Hutong rickshaw tour to see the traditional alleyways and courtyard houses. Additionally, you will visit a Hutong family home to get to know the local people's life.

Day 2 Beijing
Our clients visiting the Great Wall
Your private China vacation today begins with a visit to the Tiananmen Square, the world's largest central city square. We then walk for about 10 minutes to reach the Forbidden City, the one-time imperial palace of the Ming and the Qing dynasties (1368~1912). We leave lunch to your own choice; however, our tour guide will be glad to offer you some advice on the restaurants nearby. In the afternoon, we visit the Temple of Heaven.

Meals: Western buffet breakfast
Day 3 Beijing
In the morning, we will drive out of the city to visit a popular and magnificent section of the Great Wall - Mutianyu. To save your energy and leave you plenty of time to hike on the wall, a round-trip cable car has been included, or you can take a chairlift up and a toboggan down. You will be deeply impressed by the majestic views of the Great Wall, as well as the abundant vegetation in its surroundings. You are advised to make your own lunch arrangements today.

Following the morning activity, we will drive you back to the downtown area, where you will explore a featured local market. On the way, we will stop over at the Bird's Nest (Olympic National Stadium), so you can see it close by.

    The 6 days Beijing and Shanghai trip was the trip we spent with TravelChinaGuide. The company did an excellent job which exceeded my high expectations. From the first contact to the end of this trip everything was perfect. The two guides arranged for us were also very informative and outstanding. They really went out of their ways to help us and ensured that we could do everything we wanted to while in Beijing and Shanghai. The drivers also sent us to different scenic spots on time. This trip was great value for money. ... More

    A nice 6 days Beijing Shanghai tour! The most outstanding parts of the tour for us were Forbidden City, Mutianyu Great Wall, and the Summer Palace. They were truly grand architecture and represented traditional Chinese culture. We also took China’s high-speed railway and experienced its amazing speed! There was no forced shopping on the whole journey. Overall, the 6 days’ tour was satisfactory and out of our expectations! Thank all the good service provided by TCG! I would have no hesitation in recommending it to my friends! ... More

    We had never joined the group tour before, but this 6 days Beijing-Shanghai tour gave us a wonderful experience. The travel consultation Wendy was quick and patient. She warmheartedly supported and answered our questions. Our itinerary was well organized as we had two nice guides Selina (Beijing) and Sissi (Shanghai). They were very enthusiastic, accommodating and helpful. We visited highlights of these two cities and felt their special charm.
