    What to Expect
    Your private tour begins in the morning outside of the North Gate of Pingyao Ancient City Wall. Considered one of the best-preserved walled cities in China, the UNESCO World Heritage site of Pingyao offers a wealth of historical wonders.

    Learn about the reign of the Ming and Qing dynasties during the 14th and 17th centuries, stroll along the commercial Ming-Qing Street, and visit the ancient Rishengchang Exchange, widely considered to be the first bank in China.

    Following a Chinese lunch, you’ll participate in a paper cutting class under the guidance of a professional handicraftsman. Cut patterns on paper using scissors and create picturesque souvenirs to take away with you.

    In late afternoon, bid your guide farewell at a place of your choosing.

    Johanna, our guide, was full of useful information and insights on this fascinating 5 hour tour. Pingyao Old town is packed with historic old buildings. The tour gives a great insight into the lives of the people who lived in those times.
