Beijing Highlights Full-Day Bus Tour

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Make full use of your time in Beijing by visiting the three must-see attractions in just one day, including the Great Wall, the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square, and be escorted by friendly and knowledgeable local tour guide.
  • Full-day Beijing tour with guide: Tiananmen Square, Forbidden City, Great Wall
  • Learn about jade carving with a visit to a traditional workshop
  • Walk up the quieter Mutianyu Great Wall, or ride a cable car (own expense)
  • Traditional lunch, reflexology massage, and round-trip transport included
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.
