After pickup from your hotel, travel by comfortable private vehicle to the citys historic sites and visit local attractions. If youre touring independently, use your suggested itinerary and tell your driver where youd like to go. Be sure to confirm your custom itinerary with the tour operator prior to your arrival in Beijing; that way, they can carefully plan your independent excursion for you.
A half-day independent tour takes you to top destinations within Beijing. Visit the Forbidden City and Summer Palace, or explore the hutongs (alleyways) by pedicab. If youve selected a full-day independent tour, you can also drive beyond the city to climb the steps of the Great Wall, which offers sweeping views from above.
Full- or Half-Day Guided Tour Upgrade
Go more in depth with interesting commentary from a knowledgeable guide who helps you customize your tour. Your personal guide can take you where the locals shop, help you bargain for the best prices, and suggest the best venues to sample Beijings cuisine. It's an opportunity to get a insider knowledge on what to do and see with limited time.
After youve taken in the sights, youll be taken back to your hotel.
