Description

Visit Beijing’s historic sites and see giant pandas on this full-day tour. Marvel at the diverse architectural beauty of Yonghe Lamasery Temple, a sacred Buddhist site, discover giant pandas, and explore the majestic Summer Palace.

Be picked up from your hotel, sit back, and relax as you head to the sacred Yonghe Temple. Upon arrival, wonder at the exquisite structural design of the temple and, once inside, pass by the ancient statue of Maitreya Buddha, which stands 85 feet (26 m) tall and was carved from a single piece of white sandalwood.

Next, visit Panda Hall for a memorable encounter with the rare giant panda. Watch as these marvelous creatures roam, interact, and play with each other in a natural environment.

Break for a delicious Chinese lunch before visiting the spectacular Summer Palace, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Marvel at the complex's traditional Chinese architecture, stroll through the beautiful garden landscapes, and enjoy panoramic views of China’s largest and most well-preserved park.

After a full day of exploration, your driver takes you back to your hotel in comfort.

The panda habitat was great and Michael our guide was knowledgable with the Summer Palace and Lama Temple. He even told the restaurant to switch the food after he learned that we went there the day before on a different tour. In case nobody knows, the free meals on the tours are horrible. We had a different meal that was better than the previous, but overall the restaurant is not good. He also did not take us on any shopping excursions, which was a plus. He was great. What was not great...and what brings this tour down a star to a 4 was the driver. He was a maniac...weaving in and out of traffic and honking at everybody and everything that moved. Very impatient and performing dangerous maneuvers. I know every country drives different, but the impatience of this guy was horrible. He had a screw or two loose.

Tour Fantastico, Gale è stata veramente professionale, molto socievole e divertente. Il palazzo d’estate è una meraviglia. I Panda Giganti sono Favolosi.
