    What to Expect
    Start the day with a morning pickup from your centrally-located Beijing hotel, and transfer by private vehicle to your first attraction of the day, Tiananmen Square.
    Take a look around this massive public gathering spot, known as one of the largest public squares in the world, as you check out landmarks like the National Museum of China, Zhengyang Gate, Memorial Hall of Chairman Mao, Arrow Tower, Tiananmen Tower, Great Hall of the People, and the Monument to the People’s Heroes.
    Leave Tiananmen and continue to the Imperial Palace, more commonly known as the “Forbidden City.” Learn about the construction and renovation of this ancient royal landmark, exploring its creation in 1406 and subsequent destructions and renovations. After the Forbidden City, you’ll head to the Temple of Heaven, a famous complex of ceremonial buildings used by the Qing and Ming emperors to pray for good harvests and peace.
    Take a break around midday for an included lunch, then proceed to the Summer Palace, known to be one of the country’s largest imperial gardens. Learn about the Palace’s role in the Qing Dynasty, and discover why the palace was destroyed by the British and French troops in the 19th century. At the end of your excursion you’ll be dropped off back at your Beijing hotel.
