Full description
Join a private tour to the most popular attractions in Beijing, the Forbidden City and the Great Wall. All transportation is included, plus an expert local guide, so you can really get out there and explore the wonders of China's ancient capital.  No trip to China would be complete without a visit to the Great Wall. The majority of the wall which exists today was built by the Ming Dynasty to keep out invaders from the north. With its steep winding exterior, the Great Wall is perhaps one of the world's most iconic tourist attractions, and certainly one of China's most captivating sights. This full-day adventure will take you to see the amazing Great Wall at Juyongguan, one of the three most famous passes along the wall, from which many ancient towers and temples can be seen. You will be hiking for 1.5 hours to help you understand the sheer size and scale of the wall.  You'll also be shown around Beijing's Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square, the largest public square in the world. You can also upgrade to include lunch at a top Beijing restaurant.
