Historic Beijing I - Tiananmen Square and Forbidden City Private Tour

The whoile trip was organized very well. The tour guide contacted me the evening before the tour and confirmed the pick-up time. Li was an impressive tour guide with an enourmous amount of knowledge about the Tian An Men Square, the forbidden city and the temple of heaven. ...Stefan K., Germany – See more reviews

Beijing is an enormous city of nearly 15 million people, with one of the oldest cultures on Earth. So its no wonder Han Tang Tour has divided the city's vast history into two tours. Tour I begins at Tiananmen Square and the more recent page from China's history book, Tian An Men Square and the cultural revolution of Chairman Mao Zedong. You will tour the grounds and see Tiananmen Tower, monument to the People's Heroes, Great Hall of the People, and Chairman Mao's monument.

Then it is on to the legendary Forbidden City now known as the Imperial Palace Museum. The history of every dynasty is represented here throughout four palatial halls. Many of our tours see the highlights here, but this gives you the most in-depth visit.

After a substantial lunch, your final destination is the aptly named Temple Of Heaven, dating from the 15th century. Built in the Ming and Qing dynasties, the Temple of Heaven was the center of prayer, traditional ceremonies and sacrificial rites. You can enjoy the traditional Chinese tea after the sightseeing.

This tour is just the first part of exploring Beijing's vast history. If you wish to add to this experience, another tour, which includes visits the Summer Palace, Lama Temple, Panda Garden, will be held on the following day for your convenience. Each is a complete tour and can be taken separately.
