After your private driver/guide collects you from your hotel, your first stop is Tiananmen Square, named for the Tiananmen (“Gate of Heavenly Peace”) that separates it from the Forbidden City. Explore both the square and the palace complex with full input from your guide.
Next, enjoy lunch at Din Tai Fung, a branch of a Michelin one-star restaurant that majors in dumplings and traditional Chinese cuisine. Your guide will help you navigate the menu.
Spend the afternoon at the Mutianyu Great Wall, a less-crowded section of the Great Wall. Climb up to the wall with your guide or choose to take the cable car up and/or toboggan down. Once your tour ends, transfer to your Beijing hotel.
