Enjoy some of China's most famous landmarks with an expert guide to explain their cultural and historical meaning. Explore Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City, and hike up the most famous section of the Great Wall of China. The tour also includes stops at a jade carving factory and a Chinese Traditional Medicine Hospital.

Get up bright and early, ready for the day's adventure which begins with convenient pickup from your hotel. Hop in the bus and travel approximately an hour to Tiananmen Square. This historical site is where protesters congregate to stand up for what they believe in, in defiance of the government.

Boarding the bus once more, you will visit a jade carving factory for 45 minutes. Marvel at how this stone is carved by experts, then savor a delightful, authentic-Chinese lunch.

Hike up the wall for an amazing photo opportunity of one of the most iconic sights in the world while passing several watch towers for different views.

Lastly, you will have the chance to learn about the Chinese traditional medicine culture at a specialised hospital. Finishing the tour, you will be transferred back to your hotel.

In an old bus pick up from the hotel early in the morning, we travel with Sabrina to see the historical places, receiving hospitality, lectures and stories not many people can hear. Thank you for this unforgettable time!

Well organized. Our guide was awesome. I recommend foreigners download a translator. Also, if possible exchange to local currency in their country before traveling to China.
