      Hi Saad,

      Sorry, we do not think you can get visa-free. If you want to get out of airport, please apply the Chinese entry visa in advance.

    Hi, I am considering a flight to Asia with a lay over in Beijing on Sept 11 , arriving at 4:35 pm. I will leave at 8:20 am the next morning. This lay over is almost 14 hours long but is mostly in the evening. Do you have tours during the night? I would hate to waste a stop over in Beijing. On my return trip my lay over is on Sept 17th starting at 6:25 pm and leaving the next day at 12:45 pm. Do you have tours that could accommodate these time frames? Thank you for your help.

    • admin says:

      Hi Robert,

      According to your layover times, you only have time to visit the Great Wall on Sep. 18, 2018 morning.

  3. Hannah Fauber says:

    Many thanks,
    Hannah

    Thanks for your answer

    • admin says:

      Hi Dominika,

      Thank you for contacting us!

      Yes, according to your layover time, you will have enough time to visit the Great Wall and Forbidden City.

    Hello,
    My wife and I will arrive in Beijing on April 7 2018 at 5:05am and will depart that night at 8:40pm. What tour would you recommend to occupy most of that time?

  6. Andrea says:

    Hi,

    If we book a flight that arrives in Beijing on 5:20 am and leaves for Tokyo at 11:55 am, will we have time to see the Great Wall? If not, what do you suggest we will have time to see. The return flight lands at 6:20 pm, and our flight leaves at 1:30 am? Thank you.

    • admin says:

      Hi Andrea,

      Thank you for contacting us!

      According to your layover times, we do not think you will have enough time to visit the Great Wall. Your first layover is too short. And your second layover is too late.

      Sorry about that!

    Hi there,

    My husband and I just found out about layover tours from the airport and we are so excited!! Our flight arrives to Beijing on 08/23/17 at 19:25 pm and we depart the next day 08/24/17 at 15:00 pm. What would you recommend us booking? We’d love to do the great wall tour but I am not sure we’ll have enough time since most of the layover is overnight.

    • admin says:

      Hi Mayra,

      Thank you for contacting us!

      You will have plenty of time to do the Great Wall tour on Aug. 24, 2017. We can pick you up from your hotel or airport.

      We just sent you an email about detailed tour itinerary with the timeline, please check.
