Day 2 Beijing (B, L)
Sightseeing: Tiananmen Square, Forbidden City, Hutong Tours in Rickshaw, Shichahai Area,Drum Tower, Kung Fu Show
This morning our tour will begin with a visit of the Tiananmen Square, the symbolical heart of China and gathering place for the masses. It is the biggest public square in the world, which can hold one million people. Then we will go on our city tour to visit the Forbidden City and experience the ancient Emperor's daily life. For 5 centuries Chinese emperors carried out their administration here. With almost 10,000 rooms, it was the centre of the Ming and Qing dynasties, a massive complex of palaces,pavilions, courtyards and gardens where 24 emperors used to live. Forbidden City was the largest palace in the world, and in the past it was indeed a forbidden place for commoners. Your tour here will include private access to the Emperor's palace.
After lunch, we will head to the Shichahai Area - the old part of Beijing. First you have a chance to visit the 300-year old courtyard for about one-hour. With the help of your English speaking tour guide, we will explains to you the detailed information of the old courtyard (Siheyuan ) about its history, its layout, its Fengshui, and its traditional Chinese culture involved. Hutongs are a kind of ancient city alley or lane and are very typical for Beijing. Most of them can be found close to the Forbidden City, and many were built during the three dynasties of Yuan, Ming and Qing. Today, the Hutong is a living museum of Beijing history showing the traditional lifestyle of Beijing people. You will take a pedcab and drive through the zigzag and narrow alleys or hutongs. Two people share one rickshaw. And then you can get to the Drum Tower. Ascending the 67-meter high and two-story Drum Tower dating from 1420 is sure to bring you back to the old Beijing by seeing the big drum tower and having bird's eye view of the surrounding communities of hutongs and siheyuan - existing traditional courtyards in Beijing.
After dinner, we will enjoy the famous Kung fu show in Beijing Red Theater. The show is called the Legend of Kung fu, it tells the story of a young boy, Chun Yi (the pure one), who in order to pursue spiritual and physical harmony, is apprenticed as a monk to learn Kung Fu. Along the way he overcomes obstacles, is distracted and tempted, but ultimately achieves the designation of master who will enlighten the younger generations.

On the way back to hotel, you will be driven to visit the main 2008 Beijing Olympic venues, take an exterior visit of both the Beijing National Stadium (Bird's Nest/Olympic Stadium) and the National Swimming Centre (The Water Cube), feel free to take some photos of the stadiums.

After lunch, we will continue by visiting the Summer Palace. Equally famous as the Forbidden City, the Summer Palace is called 'Yiheyuan' (Garden of Nurtured Harmony) in Chinese. Until nowadays, it is the best preserved and the largest imperial garden in China. You will regret it if you leave Beijing without having visited this grand imperial garden.

It is regarded as the national opera in China, which also has a complete system of stage performance compared with other 360 types of traditional dramatic forms in China.

The drive service is excellent. But if he could understand a bit of English would be better.

Thank you for your mail and the photo!!! We are fine and I hope you are fine too!!!
1. What do you think of our guide service?
All the guides you proposed us were excellent! Very kind and nice, we have been very happy to meet them.
2. What do you think of our driver service?
The same as the guides, excellent drivers, we had no problems and we felt safe on the road.
3. Which meal makes you memorable? Please name the reason why you like or dislike it?
The dinner with you of course! :-) However the food has been very good everywhere apart the lunch on the boat at Guilin that was really very very poor. We did not like it at all.
4. Could you please advise why you choose us to be your tour operator for your holiday?
Because we have already been in China with your T.O. and we had been satisfied.
5. Which part of sightseeing was the most memorable for you?
Many parts, from the terraces of Guilin to the old part of Lijiang to the Potala Palace, everything was very interesting! As I told you this third tour was the best one for us: the weather was fine and not foggy, many interesting things to see and people is more kind in this south part of China, also the guides. We think we will do the fourth tour in the next two years :-)
No other suggestion, everything was OK
I wish you a nice day,
A very big hug from Manuela

Thank your for all your organizing and help with our trip. Cici in Beijing, Wendy in Xian and Lee in Quilin were all fantastic tour guides. It was wonderful to see Lee again. She was our guide in 2014 when we visited Guilin and Yangshuo. Your agency helped us with our trip that time too.
Thanks for the lovely tea cups - they will always be reminders of a special time our family had on our holiday in China.
If there are any websites you would like us to post reviews, we will be happy to do so.

My young son felt at home with her, and she went out of her way to take care of him and entertain him during the trip. She was also very knowledgeable about most things that we had questions about. We were very satisfied with the arrangements.
I've attached a few photos of us having a great time. We were lucky to experience good weather in Nanjing as well during our travels, with no rain and warm temperatures.
Will definitely contact you when we next return to China.
