A walking tour in Beijing the will let you discover the history and culture of the Chinese capital with the help of an expert local tour guide.

Beijing is a great combination of modern and historical Chinese culture. On this walking tour around Beijing you will be able to see the best of this amazing city with the help of an experienced tour guide.

One of the must see places is Tiananmen Square. In 1949, chairman Mao announced the establishment of the People’s Republic of China in Tiananmen Square, among many other historical events that have taken place here. In the square, we will watch the flag raising and lowering ceremony, performed by a troop of People’s Liberation Army (PLA) soldiers drilled to march at precisely 108 paces per minute, 75cm per pace.

The performance is worth watching, so remember to be there 30 minutes before ceremony starts.

From Tiananmen Square we will take the bus/metro to Temple of Heaven. It originally served as a vast stage for solemn rites to be performed by the emperor, who prayed here for good harvests and sought divine clearance and atonement. Strictly speaking, it's an altar rather than a temple – so don’t expect burning incense or worshippers. Along the tour, guide will explain to you ideas of design which is combined with ancestor wisdom.

On this tour, you will learn the rich history that has defined China - an experience you don’t want to miss!
