The Forbidden City was the Chinese majestic imperial palace from the mid of the Ming Dynasty to the end of the Qing Dynasty. Forbidden City is situated in the midst of Beijing city. It is the palace of the Emperor for nearly five hundred years, and also the ceremony and policy-making heart of Chinese authorities.

After the Forbidden City, drive 1.5 hours to Mutianyu Great Wall.
Lunch will be served at a local restaurant.

In the afternoon, you will visit Mutianyu Great Wall.
This part of the Great Wall is most welcomed by travelers for its picturesque scenery, fewer tourists, and beautifully-restored architecture. In order to save you time, we use the round-way cable car to transfer you to the Great Wall (or the ski lift up and toboggan down) so that you don’t have to waste your time climbing for more than 800 steps. Arriving at the Great Wall you’ll have about 2hours hiking on the wall.

You will be dropped off at your hotel after the Great Wall at about 5 pm.

Good to know:

1. It is better to take your passport or a copy with you. There is always a security check around Tiananmen square. And you may need it if you want to go into Chairman Mao’s mausoleum.

2. Unlimited bottles of water are stored in our car/van, and you need to carry them.

3. We don’t go to tourist shops, factories, etc., and waste your precious time.

4. Tips are always appreciated by our guides but never expected. They should be given if you believe your guide did an outstanding job, and further, if you as an individual want to demonstrate your appreciation to the guide for that job well done. Usually, our clients give 50 to 100RMB per person.
