      Hi Ruba,

      Thank you for your message.

      Yes, we can arrange a Great Wall tour for you on Dec. 3, 2016. But we do not have tours suitable for you on Nov. 18, 2016 night. Since your arrival time is too late.

      We just sent you an email, please check it out.

    Hi, my name is Vanessa and I have about a 9.5 hour layover in Beijing on September 22nd (my birthday, yey!). I arrive at 4:35 am and my departing flight is at 2:05pm. I would definitely like to visit the Great Wall of China, but I’m also interested in visiting some Hutongs and maybe the forbidden city as well if that’s possible? I’m only bringing carry on luggage if that helps with the time calculation. Thank you!

    • admin says:

      Hi Vanessa,

      Thank you for your message.

      The Great Wall is open at 7:30. The Forbidden City is open at 8:30. There is about 1.5 hours distance from Great Wall to Forbidden City or Hutongs. So according to your layover time, you can only visit Great Wall. We will send an email about detailed itinerary and price to you now, please check.

    Hi I’m looking into booking flight & I would have a 17hr layover in Beijing on September 29th at 3:10pm. I would like to tour the Great Wall & hopefully another tour. I depart the following day early morning. Then I will have an 18hr layover on November 4th arrive Beijing at 5:10p & depart the next day around noon. Would you please let me know the pricing of tours, how long each would take from pick up to drop off? Also will u pick up directly at the airport? Is there in amenities included besides water etc? At the moment it is till just myself traveling. Also form of payment; refunds if needed? I looked forward to your prompt response as I am finalizing details & waiting upon other responses as well. Thank you

      Hi Lidia,

      Thank you for your message.

      I am afraid you will have to time to visit Great Wall on Sep. 29, 2016. Since your arrival time is too late and the Great Wall will stop selling tickets by then. May I know your depart time on Nov. 5, 2016. I think you can visit Great Wall on that day.
