Hello. Our group of 4 will be on the cruise with 2 day dock in Tianjin 137 km from Beijing. Onshore time on the second day is until 1 p.m. We are looking for tours to Great wall and Forbidden city during these days. We prefer native Russian speaking guide. Please let me know if you can care of out needs and what is the cost for the group.

Hi, Michael,

Thank you so much for your message left to us, sharing your tour requirement.

But we share the below itinerary as below for your reference. It seems that your time is really limited. You may not have enough time to visit Forbidden City at all actually.

As your cruise departs at 1:00pm on the 2nd day. It will takes about 2-3 hours for the drive from Beijing to Tianjin international cruise terminal(depends on the traffic). However, it will needs at least 2 hours to visit the Forbidden City by the Medial Axis( the shortest route) and the Forbidden city open at 08:30. Therefore, the Forbidden City is almost not possible unless your cruise departs after at least 15:00. we suggest you the itinerary as below to ensure you could catch you cruise.


Day01 Tianjin-Mutianyu Great Wall – Beijing

We will pick you up from Tianjin port exit at 8am, then take about 3 hours’ drive distance to the Mutianyu Great Wall. You will stay at there about 2.5-3 hours. After that, transfer you to hotel in the downtown of Beijing.


Day02 Beijing – Tianjin

Check out from hotel in the morning, then have photo stop at Tiananmen Square(if time is enough) and have a short morning walk in Temple of Heaven(another landmark), where you can not only visit magnificent architecture wonders, but also see many locals doing exercises, practicing Taichi, playing Mahjang/Chinese chess/card, dancing, etc in the park. Then with the guide escort, take the inter-city high speed train from Beijing to Tianjian. Then take a taxi to the terminal in Tianjin with guide service.


Service ends.


Since we do not know your hotel requirement and your date, currently, we cannot offer the package rate for your group of 4 persons.

Could you please let us know what kind of hotels you like to stay and your travel date. If possible may I have more detailed timing of your cruise which is helpful for the Beijing tour arrangement.
