Your English-speaking guide will pick you up at your hotel lobby between 7am and 8:30am to begin your experience. The first stop of the tour is the Ming Tombs, the well-preserved thirteen Ming Dynasty imperial tombs with 500 years of history behind it. You will visit the Changling Tomb, the head and largest tomb of the Ming Tombs. Here is where the first emperor in Beijing, Yongle and the Empress Xu are buried. After exploring the Ming Tombs, you will enjoy a trip to a jade carving factory for 45 minutes. Carved jade is a very popular product in China, not only for the excellent skills artists need to do the carvings, but also because of the cultural background behind. You will have a traditional Chinese lunch following the visit. Next, you will see the the Great Wall, the longest piece of architecture in the world, stretching from China’s east coast to China’s west desert. Walk along the Badaling section, the most famous and best-preserved wall section near Beijing. Its highest point is around 800 meters above sea level and offers an optional cable car transit up and down (at own expense). After the visit, you will return to downtown Beijing, where you will have the opportunity to learn about the Chinese traditional tea ceremony by stopping at a Tea Shop. Finishing the tour, you will be transferred back to your hotel around 6pm.
