    Beijing is a city with over 2000 years’ of history, with one of the oldest cultures on Earth. It has been the Chinese capital for over 850 years (Yuan Dynasty, Ming Dynasty & Qing Dynasty).

From the square, we will view the Gate of Heaven Peace (Tiananmen) where Chairman Mao Zedong proudly claimed the establishment of the People’s Republic of China on Oct 01, 1949; monument to the People's Heroes, Great Hall of the People, and Mao's Mausoleum. Then it's on to the Forbidden City, now known as the Imperial Palace Museum. The Forbidden City used to home for 24 Chinese Ming and Qing Dynasty emperors. The last emperor, Puyi lived in the Forbidden City till 1924.
    After a nice lunch at local restaurant, our final destination is the aptly named Temple Of Heaven, dating from the 15th century. Built in the Ming and Qing dynasties, the Temple Of Heaven was the center of prayer, traditional ceremonies and sacrificial rites.

What Our Customers Say About GCT

We have returned safe, sound and very pleased. This is just a brief note to thank you for your hospitality, care and attention for details. We were a bit anxious before starting this tour but thanks to your organizing skills we have returned with great bundles of very happy memories. Your guides are all wonderfully dedicated individuals. They made our stay and movements easy, enjoyable and educational.

A small group from Toronto is soon departing for a 20 day tour with you. I have no doubt they would benefit from your expertise just as much as we did, or more. We have already talked about your organization and its people to a number of our friends. We will be happy to talk to any one else at your suggestion.
