Beijing Highlights Full-Day Bus Tour
From US$28.00
Beijing is China’s legendary capital, home to some of the world’s top historic attractions. Both travelers short on time or first-time visitors to the city will appreciate this convenient sightseeing tour, which ticks off the highlights in a single day. Visit Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City, and the Great Wall of China, topped off with a savory local lunch and included foot massage in a traditional Chinese pharmacy.
What to Expect
After convenient hotel pickup, travel with your guide to Tiananmen Square, one of the world’s largest city squares and key witness to multiple chapters in Chinese history, from the Boxer Rebellion to the protests of 1989. You’ll hit all of Beijing’s historical highlights during the tour, including the nearby Forbidden City, a 15th-century palace complex that was once off-limits to everyone but the emperor.
After a tasty Chinese lunch, get an insider’s peek at the jade carving process at a traditional workshop. From there, head directly to the Mutianyu section of the Great Wall, an off-the-beaten-track stretch of fully restored wall known for its stunning scenery and climbable watchtowers.
Top off the day with a one-of-a-kind visit to an authentic Chinese pharmacy to learn about traditional medicine and even enjoy an included foot massage using reflexology techniques. End the tour with drop-off to your hotel.
