Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Pass By: Bell and Drum Towers, Di'anmen Wai Main Street, Dongcheng District, Beijing 100006 China

Most of old Beijing, like the Forbidden City, was built in the 1400s in the early Ming dynasty. The Drum Tower is much older, dating back to the 13th century Mongolian Yuan dynasty and the reign of Kublai Khan.

Pass By: Baochao Hutong, South of Andingmen Wesst Road North of East Gulou Street, Beijing China

The Baochao or “Precious Money” hutong is an appropriate name – things are a little busier down there, with more shops and bars, such as Modernista on the corner, an expat bar with live music, great cocktails, and swing dance every Wednesday.

Pass By: Temple of Confucius and Guozijian Museum, No.13 Guozijian Street, Beijing China

The Confucius Temple was built in 1302, and officials and ordinary folk alike have paid their respects to the Great Sage here for centuries. Confucius went out of style during the Cultural Revolution and old temples like this were looted and sacked by gangs of Red Guards.

Pass By: Lama Temple (Yonghegong), No.12 Yonghegong Street, Beixinqiao, Dongcheng District, Beijing 100007 China

Yonghegong, which literally means “Harmony and Peace Palace” – was built in 1694, and it’s one of the largest Gelugpa or “Yellow Hat sect” Tibetan Buddhist temples outside of Tibet itself. Of course, there are Han influences in the architecture too, and in fact the original function of this building was as a residence for court eunuchs, before it was converted into a monastery in 1722.

Waste of money - have a nice lunch at Books & Beans instead
This tour didn’t really add anything that you couldn’t have googled when you were standing in a place in Aberdeen.
