I had a 19h layover in Beijing, so I decided to book this tour. My guide Lisa was great, she was super friendly, spoke great English, and gave me plenty of interesting information. When we said goodbye she even gave a little fridge magnet of the Great Wall to remember the day. Thank you for making this the best layover I have ever had!

We had a 12 hour Beijing layover, and thanks to the Beijing Layover Tour, and Alice our tour guide, we had a fantastic and comprehensive tour of the Great Wall, Tienanmen Square and the Forbidden City. They took care of all the details, starting right with detailed directions out of the airport, how to get a day visa, and met us on time at the place agreed. As we learned through the day, there would be no way to fit in what we saw without an experienced and licensed guide. We got to skip entrance lines, and Alice even knows the ideal spots for photo ops. Her English is great, and she made certain we kept on schedule to have plenty of time everywhere, including returning back to the Airport for our flight. They made doing a day tour both possible and easy.

Excellent tour to the Great Wall and Beijing sites. We were delayed getting into Tianjin port by a day and within 5 minutes of emailing the tour company from the ship they confirmed we could move the tour to the following day which we were able to do with our 3 day stop in this port. Really impressed with this flexibility and speed. The tour itself was great too. They delivered on all accounts, the Sunworld hotel was good and the food included was also amazing. The great thing was the tour was the same price for 2 people that it was for a group of 10 which isn't the case with a lot of tour companies. Gary UK

We were scheduled to have a 13 hour layover in Beijing and we're extremely happy that we chose to book a layover tour instead of wasting time at the airport.
Communication with Daniel went smoothly and our tour guide Jily was waiting for us despite our flight being delayed by almost an hour.

For our private tour, we saw the Mutianyu portion of The Great Wall, visited a hutong/Yandaixiejie Street/Shichahai Lake, and saw Tiananmen Square. Jily was a great tour guide and was really helpful with taking photos and helping us order at food stalls along Yandaixiejie Street.
