    I will be reaching PEK at 11.30 AM on Sunday (April 22nd) and my next flight departs at 6:05 pm on the same day (April 22nd). Could you please suggest what would be an appropriate tour option for me. This will just be one adult.

    Hi, there are 4 in my party, we will be arriving the night of Sept 3, 2018 and flying out the next day at 16:30 pm (09/04/2018). On our way home we have another over night layover, we will arrive at airport at 12:05 pm on 09/12/18, and fly out the next morning at 11:00 am. We are thinking of the Great Wall for one tour and the Forbidden forest for another, but want to know which are best for which day if they are both possible? Thanks.

    Hi we have a stop over on 9th jan 14:45 until 01:05. And on 2nd feb 04:10 until 12:30. We would love to see the great wall, if thats not possible what else would you recommend?

    • admin says:

      Hi Sally,

      Thank you for contacting us!

      Your arrival time is too late on Jan. 9, 2018, most of Beijing attractions will be closed by then. So I recommend you visit the Tiananmen Square and Forbidden City on that day. And visit the Great Wall on Feb. 2, 2018.

      We have sent you an email about detailed tour itineraries, please check.
