Day 2 Beijing (B, L)

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.

Day 3 Beijing (B, L)

Beijing (B, L)

Sightseeing: Badaling Great Wall, Ming Tombs , Sacred Way

After experiencing the royal lifestyle, today we will be transferred to the surrounding countryside of Beijing and visit the Badaling Great Wall, the pride of China and one of the Seven Wonders of the World. 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 one of the best preserved 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!

In the afternoon we will visit the legendary Ming Tombs, which are situated at the foot of Heavenly Longevity Mountain, Changping, northwest of Beijing. Since there are 13 Ming emperors buried there, this place was called the 13 Ming Tombs. You will walk along the Sacred Way, a road guarded by stone statues on both sides, as the ancient emperors did to hold a memorial ceremony for their ancestors.

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), National Swimming Centre('The Water Cube'),feel free to take some photos of the stadiums.

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.

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. Later that day you will take the flight to Xi’an. After your arrival there, you will be met and transferred to your hotel by our local guide.

Regarded as the 8th Wonder of the World, the Terra-cotta Warriors and Horses are the most significant archeological excavations of the 20th century. Over 2,200 years ago, the first emperor of China, Qin Shi Huang, ordered the construction of a vast army of Terra-cotta warriors in search of immortality. After his early death they were buried with him to protect his empire.

Another highlight today is the Big Wild Goose Pagoda. Situated in the south of Xian city, it is one of the main constructions in the famous Buddhist temple-Da-Ci-En Temple. There, the well-known Buddhist Master Xuanzang (Monk Tripitaka) stored his collection of classic Buddhist artifacts brought from India in Tang Dynasty. Now it is the Landmark of Xian.

Then we will go on to visit the Bell Tower, which is the best-preserved and best-known one among many. The Bell Tower was built in 1384. In early mornings of ancient times it had the mission of ringing the bell and giving the correct time to the whole city, hence called "The Bell Tower". With magnificent carved beams and painted rafters, this classical building is truly elegant.

Comment on our service from Wolfgang Ernst Kasper, Australia
I want to to thank you again for your good services. Everything worked out as expected ––or better! Getting the gaotie tickets was easy, and the two excursions were most enjoyable.

Dear Sandy,

now that we have returned home after a marvellous trip through China, I want to to thank you again for your good services.

Everything worked out as expected –– or better! Getting the gaotie tickets was easy, and the two excursions were most enjoyable. In particular, the guide at Huangshan – I called her ciao Xue (Little Snow) – was attentive and intelligent, great company!


After the hike up and down on Huangshan, we felt great: we can still do that at our age in the high seventies!


Hakka Country


Finally, it was a pleasant surprise to get your call. That was unexpected, but much appreciated.

Keep selling China to the world!

Best wishes

Wolfgang

I cannot praise our guide Jason enough. He was so knowledgeable, kind and fun. He was still helping today when Lisa left money in the safe at the other hotel. It has been a fantastic trip.


Thank you so much,

Comment on our service from Reinhard Bührer, Switzerland

Good experience from the past years. I think we booked already more than eight times through you.

Hi Sandy,


Please find my comments and Feedback to our Beijing tour as follows:

Holly was a lovely tour guide. Always very punctual.


2. What do you think of our driver service?

Good driver. We felt quite safe.

The day on the way to Great Wall (Mutanyu) we went to a nice restaurant which was built like a garden house. Here we got good food and good service.

Good experience from the past years. I think we booked already more than eight times through you.


5. Which part of sightseeing was the most memorable for you?

Comment on our service from Helen, Graham Knott, UK

The trip that you arranged for us was amazing from start to finish, thank you for your patience with arranging everything we asked for.

           

Dear Sandy


Thank you for your email and the photos from our trip.


I must apologise for not emailing you before now, but we have been busy and time just flies by.


     


The trip that you arranged for us was amazing from start to finish, thank you for your patience with arranging everything we asked for, we were tired out at the end but wanted to see as much as our time allowed.  Each place was different but we enjoyed everything. The organisation of everything was excellent, the guides were always on time, the drivers friendly and their cars clean with plenty of bottled water. The hotels were in great locations and the rooms were comfortable, the breakfasts could have been better especially at the King Parkview in Beijing (but having said that we did not go hungry). The lunches were great too, we enjoyed tasting all the different dishes.


       


It was really nice to be able to meet you in Guilin, it was a lovely meal (sorry we couldn’t eat more) and we hope that you enjoyed the shortbread biscuits. The Chinese knot you gave us is hanging in our car for good luck  If you would like to use any of the photographs from our trip on your website please feel free do so.


I will also leave a review on Tripadvisor.


We would have no hesitation to recommend you and your company to our friends thinking of visiting China, but most are not as independent at travelling as we are 


Please pass on our best regards to Kai, Samantha and Hannah


Sending our best wishes to you from a sunny UK


Best regards


Helen and Graham Knott

Jiayuguan Fort

The tour you organized for us went very well, excellent timing and communication, even the restaurant where we stopped for lunch was very good. I want to give a special compliment to the guide Jenny, who was very well prepared, a vast vocabulary, very helpful (she also solved some small problems in our organization), nice and pleasant company. She also helped us book a show and get to the theater in Dunhuang.

Even the transport in the car was very pleasant, spacious car and comfortable driving, another compliment also to the driver.
