Tour description

This tour is a must for those who have a limited amount of time to see Beijing’s best attractions and don’t know where to start. You will visit some of Beijing’s best known, most photogenic landmarks, including the Temple of Heaven, the Forbidden City, and Tiananmen Square. You’ll also get to feast on the city’s eponymous signature dish, Peking roast duck, at a popular local restaurant. We will pick you up from the Airport Express Station in Dongzhimen to start your tour and, in the end, we will drop you off at the same station so you can take the train back to the airport.
