Great Wall of Mutianyu and Forbidden city


Beijing is sometimes referred to as "The Kingdom of Fruit". There are many fruits produced locally in the countryside around Beijing and across the different seasons. For example, at the end of February and throughout March is the season of the strawberry. Cherries are very popular in May and June. Later in the
summer is the season for grapes, watermelon, peaches, apples, and plums. Autumn brings us chestnuts, walnuts, persimmons and dates.
We don't guarantee that you can pick fruit during your visit, because it is season dependent, but I will let you know before you book the tour.
This tour combines the World famous sites (Forbidden City, Tiennemen Square, The Great Wall, etc) with fruit picking. It will be possible to experience the local organic food while traveling to The Great Wall!

Itinerary

Pick up from your hotel at 8:30 AM
Tian'anmen Square: The world's largest Public Square. Explore the sites around the Square and use the opportunity to take some memorable pictures.
Forbidden City: The largest Imperial Palace in the world. We will spend a couple of hours learning about the history and observing the magnificent architecture of the palace.
Fruit picking at local farms. (Get some fresh fruit at the farm)
Lunch: Enjoy typical Chinese cuisine at a local restaurant (Vegetarian option available).
After lunch, we will drive to the Seven wonders of the World.
Great Wall of Mutianyu: Your opportunity to see one of the Great Wonders of the World. This section is more beautiful and less crowded than the ones closer to Beijing giving you more time to appreciate this massive construction.
