Stop At: Jingshan Park (Jingshan Gongyuan), No.44 Jingshanxi Street, Xicheng District, Beijing 100009 China

Meet your guide in the hotel lobby at your preferred time and begin by climbing Jingshan Hill in Jingshan Park, the highest point along the central axis of Beijing. Made from soil dug during the building of the moat at the Forbidden City, this artificial hill was located according to the dictates of Feng shui: to protect the imperial palace from the evil wind from the north. Today, the hill is best-known as a place to enjoy outstanding panoramic views over the walled palace and downtown Beijing.

Duration: 50 minutes

Stop At: Beihai Park (Beihai Gongyuan), No.1 Wenjin Street, Xicheng District, Beijing 100034 China

Next, walk to Beihai Park, an imperial garden to the northwest of the Forbidden City. Visit all the major sites, such as the White Dagoba, Nine Dragon Screen, and Tuancheng. Plus, if you’re here between April and November, see various old temples and small gardens, as well as the famous Five Dragon Pavilion, by boat. At lunchtime, savor a delicious meal of imperial-style cuisine at the Beihai Fangshan Restaurant, a famous establishment open since 1925.

Duration: 2 hours 30 minutes

Stop At: Back Lakes (Hou Hai), Shicha Lake Scenic Resort, Xicheng District, Beijing 100009 China

In the afternoon, follow a professional hutong guide into the hutongs, the oldest, original districts of Beijing. Stroll the narrow lanes and visit a local family home where your hosts will share stories about hutong life and the changes they have seen since 1949.
Next, head to Houhai Lake, one of the two most popular pub streets in Beijing. Admire the traditional buildings lined along the beautiful lake, and continue with a stroll through Yandaixiejie, one of the oldest hutongs and home to many traditional shops and outlets.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Bell and Drum Towers, Di'anmen Wai Main Street, Dongcheng District, Beijing 100006 China

Finally, visit the Drum Tower and head inside to watch a traditional drum-beating ceremony. After your tour finishes, your guide will drop you back at your hotel.

Ok- this tour was just wonderful fun and the lunch was amazing. Our tour guide, Angie, made the day. Her English was perfect - her pace for the day just gave us time to enjoy our surroundings and relax. Would do the tour again -- provide Angie was the guide.

This was a wonderful tour by a fabulous tour guide. Colin is so knowledgeable about Beijing and his English is perfect. I booked this tour because I wanted to see some parts of Beijing I hadn't yet seen, and get some exercise while doing so. I liked the idea of a tour with lots of walking. The added bonus was everything I learned with Colin leading the way! Jingshan Hill and Beihai Park were both beautiful and the Imperial Lunch was plentiful and delicious. My favorite part of the tour was the Hutong. Seeing this hidden gem was the highlight of my trip!
