Tian'anmen Square and the Forbidden City


Hear the stories behind Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square during a 4-hour walking tour in Beijing. After exploring the famous square, which is one of the world's largest, you'll make your way into the Forbidden City using a prebooked ticket to avoid any long entrance lines. Explore all the key sites including the Imperial Garden, and discover fun facts about the Ming and Qing dynasties from your guide. Numbers are limited to just 12 people, and you can rest assured that no unwelcome factory or tourist shop visits are planned.

Highlights:

- 4-hour Beijing guided walking tour
- Walk around Tiananmen Square as you learn about its history
- Use a prebooked ticket to access the Forbidden City
- Hear stories relating to the Ming and Qing dynasties
- Visit the Meridian Gate, Imperial Garden, and more

The price is for One or Two persons. If more than 2 persons, please let me know, I can arrange for a bigger group as well.

Itinerary

Wait in your hotel lobby at 8:00am to meet your guide. Together, we'll travel to Tiananmen Square, in the geographical heart of the city. Once one of the world's largest central squares, Tiananmen Square covers a vast amount of open space, measuring in at some 440, 000 square meters (109 acres).

From the square, you'll continue into the Forbidden City with your fast-access prebooked ticket in hand. Make your way to a quiet seating area, and learn about the palace and the Ming and Qing dynasties from your guide. Many say that a visit to the Forbidden City is more about the stories than the sightseeing, and your guide will tell all the tales to make your visit complete. Your experience ends in the grounds of the Imperial Garden but you can spend longer inside the Forbidden City, if you wish.

Please be aware that this tour doesn't include transportation to and from the attractions, but your private guide can help you get a taxi or other form of transport (own expense).
