On this truly eye-opening journey, we will take you from Beijing, which has held the title of capital on-and-off since the 11th century BC, to Xi'an, which held the title for an impressive 13 dynasties.
Your Beijing adventure includes a jaunt around the city's hutong alleyways on the back of a cycle rickshaw. Any trip to Beijing is incomplete without a hike up the Great Wall, another great opportunity to learn about Chinese history.
Next, you will take a high-speed train to Xi'an, where archaeological wonders seem almost ten-a-penny! Of course, the undisputed highlight of the Xi'an leg is the tomb of Emperor Qin Shihuang and his Terracotta Warriors.
If you have a few extra days, a trip to Hua Shan Mountain, just outside of Xi'an, is a great chance to get back to nature. As is the case with all of our tours, your travel agent will happily customize your itinerary to suit your preferences.
