We spent 4 days here before the start of the cruise. It was fantastic - so much history to see - temple of heaven, forbidden city, tianenmen square, walked on the Great Wall, and enjoyed the Chinese food ( though didn't sample the seahorse, snake, starfish, scorpion etc in the food market). Beijing traffic is unbelievable- can't believe I didn't see an accident. Walk on red, green, whatever you like, watch out for bikes, electric scooters etc as they don't obey lights either. Change lane or u turn whenever you like. There are 5 ring roads and traffic is limited on a daily basis by registration number. We had a local guide which I would really recommend. Read Less

We have walked on the Great Wall of China. How many people can say that! Very crowded, though.

A real chance to see what has become an historical square. It is vast, very busy but a real memory.

Get there early! With Viking the coach takes you right to the cable car. The history is fascinating.

Good move to book with the cruise as we fast tracked passed the queues. Fascinating buildings.

It was a perfect day, not too hot but it was crowded considering it was still summer vacation for the kids. It was a surreal experience conquering The Great Wall!

Saw a lot of the famous tourist spots in the area. Book your flight with Viking and you can have an extra full day in Beijing to explore on your own or choose an optional excursion to visit Temple of Heaven and Summer Palace.

We felt awkward at first when we told we were going to visit a local family in their house but after all said and done, we were greatful of it. It made you almost feel their way of living by seeing it with your own eyes.

The place was very crowded but still a lot of things to see. You should be warned about their bathrooms to bring your own toilet paper and soap.
