Full description
Book a private tour for 4 or 8 hours and inform the local partner of your preferences so that you can be assigned a like-minded host to take you around the city. Enjoy discovering Beijing’s must-see places, temples, markets, and the most famous tourist sites as well as hidden gems and lesser-known districts. 

Keeping your interests in mind, a bespoke flexible itinerary will be created for you. Meet your guide at a place most convenient for you. If during the tour you feel like changing direction or plans, just let your guide know. If your guide believes you'd enjoy a particular site or experience, they will suggest this and make changes to the itinerary.

You could kick off your trip with a trip to the iconic Forbidden City, home of the ancient royal families located at the heart of Beijing. Head to Tiananmen Square or the National Museum of China, one of the best museums in the country. If you would like to take in the rich natural beauty while having a spot of fun then the Temple of Heaven or Summer Palace is your next stop. Both of these old UNESCO World Heritage sites are also located in the city and are easily accessible by public transportation. See a multitude of historical monuments, and discover lots of interesting stories of past and present.

For something a little different, take a bit of time to watch Beijing Opera or an acrobatic show in the city center. Explore the various hutongs while grabbing a bite of the local cuisine in traditional eateries.
