Then it's on to the legendary Forbidden City, known as the Imperial Palace Museum. The history of every dynasty is represented here in four palatial halls, and you'll have the most in-depth visit of the Forbidden City available on this tour.
After a substantial lunch, your final destination is the aptly named Temple of Heaven, dating from the 15th century.

Had Connie again for this one, she was great! I also had this one to myself; she let me pick how much/little time we took at each place and was very knowledgeable. Highly recommend!

What my family appreciate most was the personalized treatment of our guide Chynthia Cai. My kids like her so much and we seem to be in one family as we went along. She was so knowledgable and accommodating. Marvelous tour!
