Your private tour begins at 9am, when your guide collects you from your Beijing hotel and accompanies you on the subway to Qianmen Gate, the former entrance to the Forbidden City (Imperial Palace).
Immerse yourself in the vibrancy of Qianmen Street, a pedestrianised area home to Ming and Qing era monuments and a variety of shops.
Browse the stores of the Dashilan hutong area, comprised of winding alleys and stores selling Chinese silk, herbal medicines, hand-crafted shoes, and jarred pickles. Stop to enjoy a steamed bun for lunch, visit China’s first movie theater, and then relax with a foot massage.
Your tour concludes with drop-off at the Qianmen Gate subway station at around 4pm.
