Service Description

The Forbidden City, also known as the Palace Museum, was the royal Palace for the Ming and Qing dynasties. Covering an area of 720,000 square meters (approximately 178 acres) with more than more than 890 palace buildings containing over 9,000 rooms of various sizes, it is the largest and most well-preserved complex of Palaces in China, as well as the largest group of palaces in the world. Large -scale construction of the palaces started in 1406. It took 14 years and was completed in 1420. In almost 500 years in the past since its completion, it had been used by 24 emperors of the Ming and Qing dynasties to rule over the country. The revolution of 1911 led by Dr. Sun Yat-Sen overthrew the last feudal dynasty in China. The Forbidden City became unforbidden and was opened to the public in 1925. It was listed as a World Heritage Site in 1987. On this one hour live, interactive, virtual tour of the Forbidden City, our guide will start on the outside of the giant doors guarding this massive fortress. You will experience the beauty of palace after palace. There is just so much to see. Our guide will share details and stories of this no longer forbidden place. $79 for each additional screen (does not apply to corporate customers.) * This tour is not designed for our corporate customers.
