Beijing (B, L)

Sightseeing: Temple of Heaven, Tiananmen Square, Forbidden City

This morning our tour will begin with a visit of the Temple of Heaven, which was completed in 1420, and expanded over the years by two Qing Dynasty Emperors. It was the place where the Emperor came every winter solstice to worship heaven and to solemnly pray for a good harvest. With the three blue-tiled cone-shaped roofs, a unique wooden and blue-tiled structure built without a nail, it has become a worldwide symbol of Beijing.

After lunch, we will go on our city tour to visit 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.

From here we will walk across the Golden River Bridge 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.

Whereas Genghis Khan contemplated it as a military obstacle, Richard Nixon described it as one of humankind's greatest achievements. You will be able to climb and walk on the sections of the 2,000 years old ancient wall, admiring the splendid mountain views. Bring a jacket and layer- although it is breezy, the climbing is tough. So be in a good shape!

This afternoon we will visit the legendary Ming Tombs, The Ming Tombs are situated at the foot of Heavenly Longevity Mountain, northwest of Beijing. Since there are 13Ming emperors buried there, there are also called the 13 Ming Tombs.

It breeds over 20 pandas and lesser pandas, black-necked cranes, white cranes and others.

And then we will continue to visit the Thatched Cottage of Dufu, located by the side of the Huanhua Stream in Chengdu's western suburb, will be our next stop.

Du Fu's civil service duties did not last long however, and he was captured by rebels and forced to flee the city for Chengdu after only a few years. It was in Chengdu, at this small and simple house, that Du Fu was inspired to write more than 200 poems which are regarded today as masterpieces of realist poetry.

Today we will finish the tour at Jinli street, a busy trading street with a history stretching back to the Qin Dynasty around two thousand years ago.

It started to be carved in 713 A.D and finished 90 years later. Facing the river, the Buddha has symmetrical posture and looks which have been beautifully captured in its solemn stillness. It has three-meter-long (about 11 feet) fingers. The eight-meter-long (about 27 feet) instep is big enough for one hundred people to sit on and the 28-meter-wide (about 92 feet) shoulder is large enough to be a basketball playground.

Yinchuan tour
Thank you for organizing the trip, we had a great time.

1. Guide was excellent, helpful, informative but not intrusive.

2. Driver was very good, did not drive too fast or zig-zag along the roads. Only problem was that the seatbelt in the van did not work properly.

3. We chose your company as you gave us the best price by a big margin. Lots of companies seem to quote ridiculous prices for non-Chinese travelers.

Thank you very much and if we plan to visit somewhere unusual like this again I will get in touch with your company.

Thanks

All went well - actually much better than I thought it would be.

The tour guide Lucy (Ling Ling) was simply amazing - what a wonderful lovable and knowledgeable person!!!!

She took care of us in the most perfect way. 

If there's a tourist guide that can work really well with foreigners, it's Lucy.

The tour operator is very helpful and prompt in making arrangements for us, and the guide is good and helpful.
Family tour in Yunnan
Please see my comments as follows:
1. What do you think of our guide service? 
Good and helpful.

2. What do you think of our driver service? 
Good, but not particularly cheerful.

3. What do you think of the hotel service and their breakfast? 
These International hotels' services and quality are as good as they usually are. The only comment I wish to make is that on top of the guests request for the types of rooms, they should consider to allocate ground level or easy access rooms for elderly and/or handicapped guests.

4. Which meal makes you memorable? 
Aside from the hotel being rather old the Chinese restaurant food was excellent in Dali. Good variety and tasty.

5. Could you please advise why you choose us to be your tour operator for your holiday? 
Because of you, Sandy! You were very helpful and prompt in making arrangements for us. Thank you!

Best regards,
Barton
