We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

Tour Description
Pick up at your hotel between 7:00am and 8:00am. First visit Summer Palace, the largest and most beautiful Chinese imperial garden. It is regarded as a museum of gardens in China. The visit takes about 1 hour and 30 minutes (Option: Kunming Lake Boat).

Summer Palace

Summer Palace Travel Tips
Normally it takes 2 hours to walk around Summer Palace. Visiting Summer Palace needs a bit strong legs with a lot walking since Summer Palace is huge.

Dress for the hot or cold weather. The summer in Beijing could be humid and close, sometimes extremely hot. Also winter could be very cold. So well prepared for the uncomfortable weather both in winter and summer. You are advised to wear your most comfortable shoes.

Summer Palace presents itself with different views for different seasons. Winter sees people skiing on the Kunming Lake; Spring time finds people breathe under fresh trees and flowers; Summer time often sees Summer Palace in a foggy day like a beautiful "water and mountain" Chinese scroll painting. Autumn is the best time walking around Summer Palace, clear and blue sky with comfortable weather.

Summer Palace even at different times of a day allows you to see the different views under sunrise in the morning and sunset in the later afternoon.

Additional Price Information
1.Children under 1.2m high are free of charge.
2. Taking a boat ride starting from the Marble Boat across the lake to the beautiful 17-Arch Bridge is a fun way to have more stunning views. Boat Ride: 20 yuan.

Summer Palace

Continue to visit Beihai Park (40 minutes). It used to be a winter palace for emperors for successive dynasties. There are now two things to see here: the park itself and the round city.

Beihai Park

Then get on a rickshaw to get through the zigzag and narrow alleys or hutongs. Two people share one rickshaw. You are not supposed to tip the pedicab driver since the tour cost includes the tip. Arrive at the old courtyard and begin your family visit. With the help of your English speaking your tour guide, you will have a detailed explanation of the old courtyard ( Siheyuan ) - its history, its layout, its Fengshui, and its traditional Chinese culture involved.

The tour will be over nearby the Houhai bar street before 17:00 and you will have your own exploration for the rest of time.
