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.

Beijing Study Tour

Beijing study tours are designed to provide you an immersing experience in Chinese culture during your short stay in Beijing. Participants study various subjects like Calligraphy, Chinese Painting, Seasonal Tea Tasting, Taiji and Floral Design, Chinese cuisine, basic Chinese medicine, etc.

These are private custom-made classes and you choose your own time and dates. But we recommend your private classes are set to start from 10:00 am to 12:00 am.

The study tours will be taught in English. You don't have to have had some basics already, just have to be enthusiastic and be willing to learn.

» 2-Hour Chinese Landscape Painting Private Class
2-Hour Chinese Landscape Painting Private Class Landscape Painting

Chinese painting is one of the oldest continuous artistic traditions in the world. Landscape painting is generally regarded as the highest form of Chinese painting. It is the depiction in art of landscapes – natural scenery such as mountains, valleys, trees, rivers, and forests, especially where the main subject is a wide view –with its elements arranged into a coherent composition.

Rather, they are expressions of the mind and heart of the individual artists - cultivated landscapes that embody the culture and cultivation of their masters. Painting becomes a means of conveying the inner landscape of the artist's heart and mind.

You don't necessarily have learnt Chinese painting before, just be enthusiastic and be willing to hold a brush.
