2-Day Small-Group Beijing Boutique Tour: Forbidden City, Mutianyu Great Wall, Summer Palace and Temple of Heaven
Enjoy an in-depth sightseeing experience over two days with this comprehensive Beijing city tour. With a knowledgeable guide, you’ll visit major attractions like Tian'anmen Square, the Forbidden City, the Summer Palace, the Temple of Heaven and the Great Wall of China at Mutianyu. Transportation between attractions and lunch on both days are included. (Note: Hotel stay is not included; you must have your own accommodation in Beijing.)
What to Expect
Day 1: Tian'anmen Square, Forbidden City, and Mutianyu Great Wall
  • 7:00 AM - 8:30 AM: Hotel pick-up, visit Tian'anmen Square. Your guide will be waiting for you in the lobby in the morning. A comfortable car will transfer you and your guide to historic Tian’anmen Square where the famous Chairman Mao's portrait is hanging on the wall of the Gate of Heavenly Peace.
  • 8:30 AM - 10:30 PM: Visit Forbidden City. The Forbidden City is the world’s largest imperial palace with 9,999½ imperial chambers, home to 24 emperors in the Ming and Qing dynasties (1420–1911). Your tour guide will help you explore 10 carefully selected places in the Forbidden City, recommended by our local experts, while other group tours only visit 6 spots briefly.
  • 10:30 PM - 1:30 PM: In the afternoon travel 1.5 hour from downtown Beijing to the Great Wall at Mutianyu and enjoy lunch at a restaurant at the foot of the great wall.
  • 1:30 PM - 4:00 PM: Visit the Great Wall of China at Mutianyu. In the afternoon you'll visit the most beautiful part of the Great Wall at the Mutianyu section where it is less crowded and has better views than other sections of Great Wall. We will use a cable car to ascend and descend from the Great Wall, instead of spending about 40 minutes climbing steps.
  • 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM: Transfer back to your hotel.
Day 2: Summer Palace, Temple of Heaven and Jingshan Park.
This day you'll deeply explore Beijing by visiting the famous imperial garden - Summer Palace and walk the most beautiful part of the palace - the West Lake. After having a Beijing local-style lunch, you'll visit Temple of Heaven where the emperors used to pray for rain and good harvest. Later you'll have a birds-eye view of Beijing city and the Forbidden City by visiting the Jingshan Park. After that, your guide and driver will transfer you back to the hotel - making a perfect end to your Beijing panoramic tour.

Sorry nut we did our tour Thursday to Saturday and so can not answer your question. Not everything is closed on a Monday (the Great Wall can be done then) so I am sure that the tour Company can accommodate you.
