On this fascinating tour discover some of Beijing's most luxurious locations, architectural masterpieces, and historical residences. Find a wonderful blend of old and new as you visit 4 UNESCO World Heritage-listed Sites as well as enjoy a sumptuous Chinese lunch.

Your tour of Beijing's heritage begins at your hotel, enjoying pickup and transportation to your first stop—the Forbidden City. Made up of hundreds of buildings intricately weaved, palaces in the city are renowned for housing Chinese Emperors dating back to the Ming dynasty.

Learn about the political and economic importance of the square to the People's Republic of China from your experienced guide, before being treated to a nourishing and delicious Chinese lunch.

Wonder through the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Temple of Heaven before completing your experience with a stunning stroll around the largest imperial garden in the world, the Summer Palace.

I thoroughly enjoyed visiting the sites. Could have done without the stops at the silk store and the pearl store. Rather site see than pressure shop! Great lunch! Our guide was very knowledgeable. Unfortunately the mike in the van didn’t work so it was hard to hear him.
