Upon arrival at Airport, you will be greeted by our guide and transferred to the hotel. Have a short rest. Then visit the Bund, also called Waitan, is a famous waterfront on the west bank of Huangpu River and regarded as the symbol of Shanghai. It is close to the 'Old City' and provides some of the most spectacular views of the Lujiazui District and the Huangpu River. Some people choose to take a river cruise. Here, the century-old history and prosperity of the bustling city fully demonstrate the charm of Shanghai, making the Bund a must-see attraction.

After tour, transfer you back to your hotel.

Pick you up from your hotel. Visit the Shanghai Museum. It's one of the best museums in Shanghai. The eleven galleries cover most of the major categories of Chinese art: Ancient Bronze, Ancient Ceramics, Paintings, Calligraphy, Ancient Sculpture, Ancient Jade, Coins, Ming and Qing Furniture, Seals, and Minority Nationalities.

After lunch, visit Yu Garden. This is a traditional Chinese garden and one of the best instances of the art of gardening in this country. It's situated in Huangpu District, very close to the Old City God Temple. There are many opportunities to pick up souvenirs at Yuyuan Market.

Last, transfer you back to your hotel.

After breakfast at the hotel, our guide will meet you. Visit Jade Buddha Temple. Located in the northwest corner of the city, this temple was built in 1882 and enshrines two jade Buddhas brought from Burma to Shanghai. The original temple was burnt down and was replaced by this new temple in 1918. It was built in the Song Dynasty style with curved eaves and figurines on the roof. There were many monks on the ground. It was closed for about 30 years and reopened in 1980. It has three main halls connected by a central courtyard. The peaceful and extraordinary atmosphere adds richness to our busy modern society.

Take the flight to Beijing. Upon arrival at Airport, you will be transferred to the hotel in Beijing. The rest day is free to have the chance for shopping or to explore this booming city at your own pace.

Potala Palace 03

Pick you up from your hotel in Beijing. Visit Tiananmen Square and Forbidden City. Tiananmen Square is a central cross road in Beijing at the gate of Forbidden City. Before visiting the Forbidden City, we popped across the road to Tiananmen Square. It is a big square with buildings around it and a big monument. When we visited in spring, there were lots of beautiful flowers and very colorful.

Forbidden City is a beautiful historic monument that is a do not miss while in Beijing. The architecture is stunning as are the vibrant colors. To understand the why was built like this you need to put aside your "modern" thinking way and try to dive in to the oriental ante EU thinking way. If you will look with EU or US eyes you will only see nice forficate old construction. Try to be a "local" and you will feel the deep meaning of this place.

After lunch, visit Temple of Heaven. This temple complex is one of the symbols of the Chinese capital. It consists mainly of three groups of buildings: Pavilion of Prayer for Birth, Imperial Vault of Heaven, Round Altar. The complex is located in a huge 273 hectares. The building was built during the Ming dynasty. The main architectural premise is to cast shapes symbolizing the sky (wheel) and earth (square). The entire complex was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1998.

Today, we will visit the Chinese traditional medicine culture about 40 minutes.

Pick you up from your hotel. Then visit Ming tombs. The Ming tombs attraction is a collection of mausoleums built by the emperors of the Ming dynasty of China. There are Thirteen Tombs of the Ming Dynasty. The siting of the tombs was carefully chosen according to Feng Shui (geomancy) principles. In addition, you will visit the Jade Shop about 40 minutes.

Visit Mutianyu Great Wall. Surrounded by the mountains, the Greening rate of the Great Wall reaches 98%, and its scenery is beautiful. Known for its gorgeous scenery, Mutianyu is one of the essences in the Great Wall of Ming Dynasty. Mutianyu has the characteristics of the fresh air, sided embrasure, peculiar guards, intensive watchtowers, the strong feeling of three-dimensional and the existing of the inside and outside branch. You can choose to take the cable car up and down. It's optional.

On the back way, visit Bird Nest and Water Cube. The Olympic Park becomes landmark of Beijing after Olympic Games 2008. The Bird's Nest and Aquatic Park are architectural wonders. There are many little souvenir shops and sundry stores. Tourists want to get some photos especially when the stadium is lit up.

Last, transfer you back to your hotel.

Pick you up and drive to the Summer Palace. The Summer Palace is located a bit further way from the known central areas of Beijing, but it is definitely worth the visit for its nice landscapes and distinct landmarks that have been built in the surrounding gardens.

Continue to Lama Temple. This is one of the finest examples of a functioning Buddhist temple you will find in China. You will see many monks and worshippers burning incense to Buddha and get to walk in and through a number of buildings that the Emperor actually lived in during the 1750's AD. There are many different Buddhist statutes but the most impressive of all is a 50 foot tall wooden Buddha carved from a single sandalwood tree trunk. Worth a look.

After lunch you will move on to one of the high point of anyone visiting Beijing, a trip to the zoo to see the frolicking Pandas, a living Chinese treasure.

After tour, transfer to the airport to see you off.

Traveler Reviews




I wanted to visit Beijing, China along with my wife. After long search I found a Travel Agency called Tour Travel China. They are in real good Travel Agent who helps lot to make your journey a memorable Trip in your life. They have good Tour guide who have deep knowledge of the place and explain well. They provide you a memorable Chinese traditional Lunch along with Tour. In my case I drop down my camera in the counter of China Air. I remember after I crossed Security checked I asked Airline persons but they never paid me any attention, but they helped me to find and return my camera within few days. I haven’t travelled with any other Travel Agency who goes beyond to help. If I got time to visit again I definitely will go with them and I will send my family and friends through their Travel Agency. More



The two day tour was all i needed. And they made it perfect. From the Badaling Great Wall, Changling Ming Tombs, Jade Factory and Tea Ceremony place to Forbidden City, and Summer Palace and Pearl Factory, it was wonderful. More



I booked this tour last minute and did not regret it! The cost was minimal compared to the fun I had! First we toured the Forbidden City and our guide, Leo, was wonderful! He shared great knowledge and gave us time to explore on our own. Next we went to the Jade factory and was given a short tour followed by lunch there. The dining experience was wonderful and delicious. We then headed to the Great Wall and it was amazing! Although our time there was limited to two hours, it was just almost perfect. We ended the day with a tea sampling and shopping. I couldnt have asked for a more perfect first tour of China. More

On our recent trip we visited :
1) Badaling Great Wall and the Ming Tombs with Linda
2) Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven and the Summer Palace with Jackson
3) Zhujiajao Water Town with Jason
We were well looked after and driven everywhere as part of a small bus group and met some lovely people. The local Chinese lunches were particularly nice. More



We had a 2-day tour with Tour Travel China.
The first day includes Badaling Great Wall and Changling Ming Tombs with visits to the Jade Factory and Tea Ceremony place.
The second day includes Tian An Men + Forbidden City, Tian Tan, and Summer Palace with visits to the Pearl Factory and Bao Shu Tang where we got a nice foot massage for only 20 Kuai. 
The itinerary and tour service, especially the first day with David were absolutely amazing! He is a great tour guide, with excellent command in English as well as a nice personality.
The second day with Paul was a little bit too fast for our liking. He spoke too fast and a little bit unclear, and seem like almost too in rush for anything so I think that could be improved in the future. The meal in our second day was amazing though! Delicious!
Thank you to you and all TTC team for helping our trip in Beijing much easier! More



Enjoyed a hiking day trip with Tour Travel China to the Great Wall at Jinshangling. This is a further away section but much quieter and definitely worth the extra travel. I visited Mitanyu previously which was very busy.
Two hikes were available 7km and 13km. I took the 7km which was still quite challenging. Spent 2.5 hours on the wall. It’s an amazing experience.
After hiking we had a late lunch at a local restaurant and then headed back to Beijing.
There is no shopping, although there are a few hawkers on the wall.
Make sure you take lots of water and sunscreen with you as it can get quite hot in Summer.
The tour guide and driver were excellent and can recommend this trip.
The travel time is quite long so bring a tablet and headphones to keep you entertained More



We had a great 3-day tour. Most of it was a walking tour that required stamina. The cost was a good deal that included 3 lunch meals.
The tour guides Yoyo, Irish and Vik were very knowledgable about their history. Their English was good, but at times could not understand their accent. 
The Lunch for the 3 days were good but on the 2nd and 3rd day, we were brought to the same restaurant. The service in the Great wall restaurant was good. Food was prepared on the table when we arrived. Unlike in the 2nd restaurant, food was served one at a time, hence time-consuming.
The mandatory stops, total of 5 in 3days: Jade factory, Tea factory, Pearl factory, Silk factory, Foot massage were informative but the time spent there could have been added for picture-taking in the tourist places.
The 24-hour hotline was veey helpful for queries.
Overall, Tour travel China met our travel expectations. More
