    Three (3) of us will arrive in Beijing at 13:55 on 23 June. Will we be able to do the Wall, Square and Forbidden City tour? What time do the sights close? We will be staying overnight?

      Hi Brian,

      Thank you for your message.

      According to your arrive in Beijing time, I donot think you can visit both Mutianyu Great Wall and Forbidden City. Since the Forbidden City is stop selling tickets at 16:00. We have sent an email about Great Wall tour itinerary and price to you, please have a look.

      Hi Paul,

      Thank you for your message.

      Since the Forbidden City and Great Wall will stop selling tickets at 15:30 and 16:30 in December. So I donot think you can visit one of them on your first layover in Beijing. But you can visit Great Wall on your second layover. I recommend you visit Hutongs with rickshaw on your first layover. We will send an email to you, please check.

    Hi, I am interested in doing a layover in Beijing to see the wall, Tiananmen Square/ the forbidden city? Maybe the Tour Code: BTG-BLT-109 is the most advisable option?
