    A great way to explore the Tiananmen square and Forbidden City. Our guide, Francis, was very friendly, informative and helpful. He picked us up at the hotel which saved us a lot of time finding each other at the crowded Tiananmen square. We have 2 children with us and Francis entertained them very well. He took us on the palace wall and other parts that are newly opened to public. Highly recommend this tour. (We didn't use group tour as our children wouldn't be able to catch up with all adults.)

What To Expect

Explore one of the most important historical sites in China, boasting of a magnificent architectural complex steeped in culture and the arts! The Palace Museum, better known as the Forbidden City, holds a vast collection of paintings, calligraphy, ceramics, and antiquities from the many golden periods in China’s imperial history. Located at the heart of Beijing, you’ll be excited to see that the Palace Museum houses not just historic spots, spectacular gardens, museums and theaters, but also contemporary cafes, restaurants and shopping malls. Subway stations and bus stops are within walking distance, making it very accessible especially to first timers in Beijing! Meet up with your professional guide and enter through the Meridian Gate, a massive U-shaped portal at the south end of the complex, which in former times was reserved for the use of the emperor. Since yellow is the symbol of the royal family, it is the dominant color wherever you look. Roofs are built with yellow glazed tiles; decorations in the palace are painted yellow; even the bricks on the ground are made yellow by a special process. Your guide will help you find your way through the Forbidden City and put everything you see and hear into perspective.

    The tour guide is kind and friendly. It has already arranged a pick-up and drop-off service two days before departure. It is a very experienced guide along the way.

    A strong guide to Francis, the tour guide who participated in this trip this time, explained super carefully to let you understand the other side of the Forbidden City. The story of the palace was very fruitful.

    Cathy, tour guide, was very good. I contacted me one day earlier and taught me to gather there. In addition the explanation is very good, not only fluent in English, so that we know the Forbidden City within a short time, but also to help take a few very good photos it.
