Day 1 Pick up from Tianjin Cruise Port and visit Forbidden City (lunch)
Pick up from Tianjin Cruise Home Port at the appointed time. The guide will be waiting for you at the exit of Cruise Port Terminal, holding a sign with your name on it. Then drive to Beijing, which takes about 2.5 hours.
Visit Tian'anmen Square. Its name literally means “Gate of Heavenly Peace”. The square witnessed the foundation of the People’s Republic of China and several important events in Chinese history. Then visit the Forbidden City with VIP access to enter the largest ancient imperial palaces group in the world. This is the former Imperial palace of twenty-four emperors of the Ming and Qing Dynasties ruled China for about 500 years (1420-1911AD).
Transfer to your hotel after the tour.
Day 2 Visit Dingling Tomb and Mutianyu Great Wall (lunch)
Pick up from hotel in the morning. Then drive to Mutianyu Great Wall. When people think about China, the Great Wall is probably the first thing to pop out. It was listed as a world cultural heritage by UNESCO in 1987 and has become a national icon of China. Mutianyu Great Wall is the most beautiful section of the Great Wall. The vegetation coverage is about 96%. In summer, the mountains will be covered with green trees with the wall twisted and turned along the mountains. In late autumn, the leaves are turning yellow or red, the scenery is amazingly beautiful.
After lunch, you will visit Dingling Tomb, which is the only tomb of the thirteen Ming Tombs to be excavated. Buried here are three individuals; Emperor Wan-li (died 1620), Empress Wang (died 1620), and another Empress Wang (died 1611). On the way back to the downtown, you will have a short exterior visit of the Olympic Stadiums-Bird's Nest and Water Cube.
Back to your hotel after the tour.
