    Hello!
    I was hoping to visit Mutianyu on the 30th December.. My flight arrives 14:45 at Beijing Capital (Pek) (departs 31st Dec 00:50)… I will be checking my luggage right through so hopefully won’t take too long to get out of the airport…could there be time to visit before they stop selling tickets for entry to the wall?
    Thanks,
    Eliza

    And if not, what sights would you recommend seeing at night and within that timeframe please?

      Hi Eliza,

      Thank you for contacting us!

      According to your arrival time, we do not think you will have time to visit Great Wall. Sorry about that.

      We suggest you visit Hutong area and Tiananmen Square. We just sent you an email, please check it out.

      Hi Jerry,

      Thank you for asking!

      We recommend you Mutianyu Great Wall & Forbidden City Layover Tour. This is the most popular itinerary for a long layover in Beijing.

      About other expenses, if you would like to take cable cars at Great Wall, the cost is USD16 per person. If you would like to have lunch, the cost around USD15-20.

      Normally, the tip for the tour guide around USD12-15, and the tip for the driver around USD10-12. It is up to you.

      If your flight got delayed, please do inform us in advance. Then we will cancel your tour and refund your deposit.

    I am scheduled to arrive at 5am on Nov 29 and depart 8pm (15 hours). My main interest is seeing the Great Wall but would love to see anything else nearby if it doesnt increase the price substantially.

    In addition to the tour costs, what other expenses will I need, lunch, tip etc.
    Thank you
