What to expect
  • In the morning your personal guide collects you from your centrally located hotel in Beijing; it's a quick drive to the railway station. Take a second-class seat aboard a bullet train for the short ride to Tianjin.  On arrival, transfer to a private vehicle or taxi to the Porcelain House, the first stop on your itinerary. This French-style colonial villa was built in the 1920s and its exterior is covered with shards of porcelain. Inside you'll find a museum of antiques including crystal, marble carvings, and semi-precious gems collected by the owner. Next, head to Wudadao, aka the Five Great Avenues, home to more than 2,000 garden-style villas built during colonial occupations. Get a closer look at the architectural wonders with an optional horse-drawn carriage ride (own expense). Get an introduction to Tianjin's cuisine over lunch provided at a local restaurant. Then take a spin on the Tianjin Eye, a modern-day landmark. From the highest point of the Ferris Wheel, you can see views stretching as far as 25 miles (40 km) into the distance. Ancient Culture Street is your final stop. At Tianjin's top shopping destination for traditional Chinese goods, find dozens of shops selling items, from embroidery and calligraphy to tea sets and figurines. From here, return to the Tianjin Railway Station and board a bullet train back to Beijing. Your guide then transfers you back to your hotel.

Dec 2019
The bullet train ride was very smooth and comfortable in 2nd class and sight seeing was fun. The Porcelain House was unique and worth the stop. We toured the city via taxi which was enjoyable and allowed us to get around quicker. We had experienced Eyes before, but it did not disappoint in the view of the city and beyond. We stopped for lunch at the hotpot in the local mall and it was fantastic. Our guide Lisa was informative about local area and did a great job of making our day enjoyable.

Very nice tour
Dec 2018 • Couples
We had a really nice time on this side trip to Tianjin. The Porcelain House was odd in a good way and we had a nice guided tour with lots of information. It was a brutally cold day, so we asked our guide for an extra stop of hot coffee. High places scare me a bit but the view from top of the Eye was worth it. We had several day trips while in Beijing and Joyce, our guide for this trip, was the best guide of all the trips we took. The bullet train was clean and comfortable. We are glad we did this tour.

great trainb ride
Apr 2018
An amazing train, it is very advisable to purchase tickets in advance (I purchased at the CTRIP site), a trip from Tianjin to Beijing takes half an hour, quickly and conveniently.
I was afraid of the trip and ordered an upgraded car, but very comfortable in the regular car
