4-Hour Private Tour: Lama Temple, Confucius Temple, Guozijian Museum with Dim Sum

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    Your English speaking guide will pick you up from your Beijing central hotel at 9:00am or 14:00 depending on your choice, then travel to the Lama Temple (Yonghe Palace), the largest and best preserved lamasery in Beijing. It was converted into lamasery in 1744 and so Yonghe Palace became the national center of Lama administration.

    Next, walking through a beautiful and quiet street to discover the Temple of Confucius and Imperial College (Guozijian Museum), where the emperor expounded the Confucian classics to an audience of thousands of kneeling students, professors and court officials – an annual rite. Built by the grandson of Kublai Khan in 1306, the former college was the supreme academy during the Yuan, Ming and Qing dynasties.

    You will enjoy a fun performance here including the dancing performance to see how they worship in the old days (show might be cancelled due to bad weather conditions).

    Finally, enjoy a delicious dim sum lunch or dinner with the locals (please note that during the busy time, you may have to wait for 10-20 minutes for a table)

    After meal, your guide can give you suggestions and ideas on what to do next on your own, or assist you to find a taxi back to your hotel (at your expense).
