Tour Details

This guided tour of Beijing is the perfect opportunity to experience its extensive history and beauty. Due to the distance between your port and Beijing, you'll visit one of the most popular destinations in the city: Tiananmen Square/The Forbidden Palace and its surrounding sights. On Mondays when the Forbidden Palace is closed, you'll visit the spectacular Temple of Heaven.

Named after the "Gate of Heavenly Peace," Tiananmen Square is a famously recognized city square in the center of Beijing, Built during the Ming dynasty, this massive meeting place is a photographer's delight.

The square is located just to the north of the Forbidden City, former home to emperors and their households. It's also been the ceremonial and political center of Chinese government for nearly 500 years. The traditional Chinese architecture of the Forbidden Palace is impressive, influencing cultural and architectural developments in East Asia and elsewhere.

On days when the Forbidden Palace is closed, the spectacular Temple of Heaven is your other option on this Beijing guided tour. Constructed from 1406 to 1420, this stunning site is a medieval complex of religious buildings. A number of emperors from the Ming and Qing dynasties would visit the Temple of Heaven for annual prayer ceremonies, hoping for good harvest.
