What to expect
Depending on the start time selected at checkout, meet your guide outside of your hotel lobby in the morning or afternoon. From here, make your way to the nearest metro station for the short and easy journey to the Summer Palace (Yiheyuan), a UNESCO World Heritage Site.  During your journey, your guide provides a historical overview of the landmark, which was built in 1750 as a royal residence and is widely considered a masterpiece of Chinese landscape design. On arrival at the palace, feast your eyes on an intricately painted wooden promenade known as Long Corridor, admire the 17-arch marble bridge that connects South Lake Island to Kunming Lake, and remark at the frivolity of a marble boat dedicated to Empress Dowager Cixi. See, too, gorgeous examples of Chinese landscaping at the Hall of Dispelling Clouds and Longevity Hill before either continuing to explore the grounds independently or accompanying your guide back to your Beijing accommodation.

Jimmy is the best!!!
Sep 2019
Jimmy was an excellent tour guide and provided a custom, private tour that met our needs. We sat in the hotel at the beginning of the tour to plan the day. We shared with Jimmy that our priority was to capture some great family pictures, and get a little history in the process. Turns out Jimmy is an excellent photographer. We gave him our camera for the tour and set him loose. He captured an excellent combination of candid and posed shots, while sprinkling in some history along the way. He was also helpful with getting us early coffee before the tour, and helping us get set up on Didi (Chinese Uber). We shared with Jimmy that we do not want to be taken to any sales pitch, or overpriced souvenir shop. He shared with us that his company does not take customers to hear sales pitches (a bonus of the tour we very much appreciated). Thank you for helping to make our time in China Amazing!!!
