    Hello! I’m having a 20 hrs layover in Beijing on 14th of May. I’m landing at 5 am so should be ready for the trip at 7:30 as you go. Is there any group I could join? I don’t want to go alone plus would be awesome to save some $.
    Please let me know if you have a group and how much would it be.

    I’m gonna have a long layover on Beijing (around 19 hours!) on the 1st of April, and I would like to book a tour with you (Great Wall and forbidden city) but I don’t want to do the tour alone so I was wondering if I can join a bigger group and that way pay less money. Let me know if that’s possible
    Best regards
