Beijing & Great Wall, Xian, Shanghai

China's most popular destinations are the focus of this classic China tour.

Begin in Beijing, China's centuries-old capital. With your private guide and driver, tour imperial masterpieces such as the Forbidden City, the Temple of Heaven and the Summer Palace. Explore the narrow hutongs (lanes) of a traditional residential neighborhood. See lesser-known temples, and venture to a little-visited hilltop for panoramic views over the rooftops of the Forbidden City. Visit markets specializing in pearls, silk, food and furniture, and, if desired, explore new art gallery districts that showcase the city's burgeoning contemporary art scene. One day, take an excursion to the Great Wall of China.

Next, fly to the ancient capital of Xian, a major stop on the Silk Road. See the famed Terracotta Warriors and the massive city walls. Explore a local night market and the lively streets of the Muslim Quarter. Visit the important Big and Small Goose Pagodas. Tour the impressive Shaanxi Provincial History Museum and the Stele Forest, a fascinating library of tall stone tablets.

Continue to Shanghai and experience the unbridled energy of China's most stylish and modern city. During private touring, learn about Shanghai's history through the architecture of the Bund, the French Concession, Pudong and other districts. Tour some of China's best museums, including the Shanghai Museum. Also visit up-and-coming neighborhoods filled with art galleries, design shops and stylish new restaurants.
