"Take a journey to understand what Beijing is all about"

This well-designed Beijing city tour is a different travel experience all together. Instead of a long day tour, we've made it 4 hours only for you to get a glimpse of all the interesting places; tour starts in the afternoon and you will concentrate mainly in 3 parts:

Wangfujing street - Wusi street - Jinshan Garden. 
Wenjin street- Deshengmen Gate - Drum & Bell Tower - Shichahai – Second ring road- Dongbianmen Gate. 
Chongwenmen Gate - Old Concession - Tian’amen Square - Qianmen street. 

City history walk:
Imperial outer view (Jingshan Garden - Imperial Palace - Beihai Park). 
Ancient city wall ruins at Dongbianmen.
Ancient commercial area (Qianmen)

A special perk for our travelers!

We prepared a unique “Old Beijing” album, for each traveler – a collection of 100 years’ old photos taken by travelers and journalists traveling to China last century. You will be able to spot the same places in the pictures, during our tour. This is a remarkable and unique opportunity to understand first had, the changes Beijing has been through and experiencing “then and now”
