It is the largest city square in the world, occupying an area of 440,000 square meters, and able to accommodate 1,000,000 people at one time.

Then, our guide will take you to visit the Forbidden City, also named The Imperial Palace. A high red wall with a total length of 3,400 meters (3,718 yards) encases the palace. The palace, the most magnificent and splendid palace complex in China, each corner holds secrets, and every glimpse unveils a panorama of regal splendor that transcends time. Do you want to know more? Just ask from our guide!


After lunch, drive you to visit another imperial site - Temple of Heaven. The temple was constructed in 1420 during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), and was enlarged during the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911). It is the grandest cult architecture complex in the world and a masterpiece of the Chinese people created in ancient times. Emperors of the two dynasties used to worship the heaven and pray for rich harvests, as the feudal emperors thought they were the son of the heaven.


The last for the tour is Summer Palace, it is an imperial garden in Beijing and also the pinnacle masterpiece of Chinese classical gardens. In the art of Chinese garden design, the techniques of mountain-water planning, borrowed scenery, abrupt imitation, and juxtaposition are all exemplified in the Summer Palace.


Although we are reluctant, the tour has come to the end. Our guide will escort you back to your comfortable hotel in Beijing (Train station,Airport).

My husband and I done this tour in August few days ago, the tour only for two of us, along with our driver and our guide, Shirley was amazing! She was very informative and a lot of fun to talk with about both the history of the sites that we visited such as Forbidden city, temple of heaven as well as local culture of Beijing. She even gave us recommendations for other places to visit in the next day on our own as well as a few restaurants to eat at. We had dinner at one of famous Peking roast restaurants that night and it was one of our best meals in Beijing. We're so happy we joined this tour and would recommend it to anyone else.

We had a wonderful weekend in Beijing last week after a long time at home. We live in Shanghai and work here since last september but it was our first time to visit Beijing. We booked this short day to visit the Beijing's highlights with Beijing Private Tour, we had Shirley as our local tour guide in Beijing who speaks the fluent English, she was knowledgeable and helpful througout the tour. We were picked up from our Beijing hotel at the agreed time, visit the most famous sightseeing spots in Beijing such as Forbidden city, Temple of Heaven and Summer Palace. We enjoyed our time on each spots. After the tour, our guide Ms. Shirley helped us to get the Liyuan opera show tickets. We traveled by high speed train on last Friday, the train was unbelievable between Shanghai & Beijing, it took around 5 hours for one way. We highly recommend high speed trains If you plan to visit Beijing from Shanghai.

This tour will be your best choice if you have a limited travel time in Beijing that includes the major landmarks of Beijing city for first time visit. It was a private tour only 3 of us, which made it more personal. I hope you have Betty as your tour guide, a friendly, personable, and knowledgable Beijing local tour guide. During the day, we visited the tiananmen square from across the street, so its mostly forbidden city, summer palace and temple of heaven, all of those places were we want to see. Very convenient with hotel pick-up and drop-off, avoid all lines and makes the entire experience awesome and easy with the private tour guide service.Highly recommend and great value!

Adrian was a well informed and really helpful guide. He took lots of photos of us and was great at explaining things. We had a fabulous day with our guide and driver, and we covered the main parts of Beijing with a few additions thrown in along the way. Adrian's English is superb and he described the history of the sites and the wider China with such eloquence that it helped us to understand the people and the country, setting up the rest of our trip perfectly. Beijing is a truly amazing city but it's jewels were brought to life by Adrian. By the end of the day we felt as though we'd made a true friend in Adrian and a life-long admiration for Beijing. If there were six stars, we'd still give it top marks! Thank you Adrian.

This is a great tour if you're limited on time in Beijing and want to see the highlights of major landmarks in the city. We confirmed the tour with Beijing private tour through email. It is fully guided personal tour, no other tourists join in us. I hope you have Betty as your tour guide (She is a full-time tour guide in this company). Very friendly, personable, and knowledgable about the history behind all the places we visited. She knew how to get us through crowds and lines of visiting Chinese tourists from all over, which could be overwhelming at times during the peak season. Be prepared to walk and don't forget your passport, as it is required to gain entrance to Tiananmen Square and The Forbidden City for foreigners. As there are add-ons to this tour, including a boat ride to the Summer Palace and climbing the steps of the Summer Palace (highly recommend for a beautiful view of Kunming Lake, surrounding mountains, and the Beijing skyline -- if it's a clear day).

This was a great tour and a perfect way to see the highlights of Beijing in a day! There were only three of us in the group and our guide Shirley was flexible with time at each stop, allowing for guided time as well as free time to explore and take photos. Shirely answered all our questions about Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City, the Temple of Heaven, the Summer Palace, and any other topic. Lunch was nice with a variety of dishes to pick from. At the end of the tour, Shirely suggested a drop off spot which would allow me to explore another area of Beijing, but also easily return to my hotel via subway. All in all, a great day!

Our tour guide Adrian and driver Mr. Li picked my family at our hotel lobby. We booked a this customized Beijing tour through this company, i can't say enough positive things about service. The tour guide Adrian is very kind, helpful, knowledgable, patient and with good English skills, are such a few of his many positive assets. Our driver was driving very smoothly. We toured Beijing, seeing all of the popular tourist sites including the Tiananmen Suqare, Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven, Summer Palace. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with them during the tour, even though it was a short visit. We were dropped off at Beijing train station for cathing our high speed train to Xian when we finished the tour, Adrian helped us to get into the train station & showed the check-in gate since it was our first time to take train in China. If you are planning to travel to Beijing, we would highly recommend this tour and tour company.

I booked this Beijing day trip via email contact, this team is very professional and very efficient. We had Lily as tour guide and she was fantastic. We were picked up at our hotel lobby with a clear pick-up sign, then sit in a clean luxury van for myself and parents. we can tell it was a super hot day but the driver prepared plenty of bottle water for our family and was prompt with pickups from the various locations when we finished sightseeing. Lily worked with us to pack in a full day of touring without rushing us. In the morning, we saw the Tiananmen Square & Forbidden City. We had plenty of time to hear the history and visit the various buildings within both locations. She took good care of my parents since they had problem of walking. We had a very good lunch at a local restaurant whihc menu in chinese, but she assisted us in ordering the food. After lunch, continue our tour to Temple of heaven and summer palace, I was amazed that she was able to coordinate everything and yet we never felt rushed. Lily was fantastic and if I could have scheduled her for our entire time in China I would have. She provided lots of great information for us about Beijing even whole China. FANTASTIC!!!

I have nothing but excellent marks for this Beijing Tour and the Tour guide.Booking this Beijing city tour package was the best decision we made, the tour guide Peter was excellent very friendly and informative, he did his best to make us comfortable and enjoy our first time in Beijing. He was very knowledgeable and happy to answer questions about the places we went – and about life in China in general. We went during the very busy Golden Week Holiday. Peter timed everything perfectly to avoid the worst of the crowds. This tour is a must for people visiting Beijing.Highly Recommend!

We all agreed that we learned so much more having a private guide point things out to us that we would not have noticed on our own.During the day, we visit Tiananmen square, forbidden city and Temple of heaven...Also she is a good photographer and made sure to email me the pictures.
