Day01 Beijing - Jinan
You will take a high speed train from Beijing to Jinan on your own. The train ticket will be delivered to your designated hotel in advance. Our local guide will be expecting you at the Jinan railway station and transfer you to the hotel with a private van. 

Day02 Jinan - Qufu
Confucius Temple, Qufu
In the morning, we will drive you to the hometown of Confucius, Qufu. After checking in the hotel, you will visit the three most representative attractions of Qufu, the Kong Family Mansion, the Confucius Temple, and the Cemetery of Confucius. The Kong Family Mansion was where the descendants of Confucius lived. Covering an area of over 240 Mu (about 40 acres), the Kong Family Mansion has 463 houses, halls and pavilions. It is said that its scale is just next to the royal mansion of the Forbidden City. The Confucius Temple in Qufu is the first of its kind in China, which was initially built in 478 BC during the Spring and Autumn Period in memorial of the sage, and reconstructed many times in the following dynasties. Besides the splendid ancient buildings, the vast storage of historical items will show you the history and culture of Confucianism. The Cemetery of Confucius is the graveyard of the Kong family. During the 2,000 years since Confucius' death, more than 100,000 descendants of Confucius were buried here. The cemetery has become the largest and most long-lasted family graveyard in the world.
Day03 Qufu - Tai'an - Jinan
Mt. Taishan
Today we will transfer you to the Mount Taishan which is famous for its long history, abundant traditional culture and gorgeous natural landscape. A round-way cable car will help you to view the essence of the mountain easily. It is said that before the Qin Dynasty about 2,200 years ago, 72 emperors of different dynasties have made pilgrimages to the mountain. 12 emperors after the Qin Dynasty also offered sacrifices to the mountain. These special ceremonies and sacrifices earned the mountain widespread fame. Here, you could also visit the Dai Temple which is the largest Taoism building complex in Mount Taishan. Located at the southern foot of Mount Taishan, the temple was built in Han Dynasty (1st to 3rd century) and was renovated during the following dynasties. After the mountain tour, you will return to Jinan and check in the hotel again.

Day04 Departure from Jinan
Jinan is a famous 'spring city' for there are hundreds of springs in and around the city, among which the Baotu Spring is the most noted one. After a rich breakfast, you will visit the Baotu Spring. The water sprays out from three outlets throughout day and night, creating thunderous sounds and water jets. Then proceed to the Black Tiger Spring, another famous spring in the city. You will see water coming out from three black tigers' heads. The sound made by water is just like the roar of the tigers. Your private visit will be ended today and our guide will see you off at the airport. Wish you a nice trip!
