    Hi, I used your company for layover tour last week and many thanks to Johny for excelent service. In May 15th we are coming through Beijing again and now we would like to see Forbidden city, Tiananman sq and Temple of Heaven. We arrive in Beijing ať 11:00 and have 16 hours. Is there enough time to see these places? We have experience that passport control take 2-3 hours.

    I’m planning a trip in late November. I arrive in Beijing at 5:55 PM and depart the next morning at 8:35 AM. That’s about 14 hours. But are the tours available in those times?

    • admin says:

      Hi Vivian,

      Thank you for contacting us!

      I suggest you visit Hutong area and Tiananmen Square during your layover in Beijing. Because your arrival time is too late, most of Beijing attractions will be closed by then. We will send an email about detailed itinerary and price to you now, please check it out.
