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.

    I was extremely happy with the 6 days Beijing Shanghai tour. It was amazing in terms of the airport and railway station pick-up service, hotels, meals, drivers, guides and attractions. The reasonable itinerary ensured the time was made good use of.

    We visited Beijing and Shanghai, the two most important cities in China with completely different styles. My favorite attractions are the Forbidden City, the Great Wall and the Bund which were the landmarks of the two cities. The Huangpu River Cruise was also very exciting. The hotels and meals were quite good. Thank you for an unforgettable experience! ... More

    We were satisfied with the whole trip, from our first moments in Beijing until we left Shanghai. All of our experiences were absolutely wonderful. Our guide Lily in Beijing was able to impart her knowledge about the attractions and shared everything about Beijing with us. Jimmy also gave us a great introduction to Shanghai. The hotels actually were 5-star quality and conveniently located for shopping. The Mutianyu Great Wall was very beautiful and it snowed heavily when we visited Forbidden City! It's a perfect trip! ... More

    It was the best choice to book the 6 days Beijing Shanghai tour with TCG! This company provided high-quality service for us, including clean hotels, safe cars, and perfect arrangements. The hotels we stayed in were clean and near to the subway, so we sometimes went to the busy places on our own. Very thankful for our guide Sara, she organized full and interesting schedules and accompanied us to visit many famous spots. This group tour provided us with great convenience and we had no need to consider traveling details. We were very satisfied with this tour! 5 Stars!! ... More
