Beijing Layover Tour

5 reviews | 68 travellers
Excellent service, we wanted to take advantage of the 12-hour layover in Beijing, back to Mexico. It took us a while on the visa, however our guide waited for us. He gave us a good explanation of the route and suggested places that we had left on the way. Wonderful experience.

Beijing Layover Tour

The tour is completely private, including a car, driver and Spanish speaking guide from the airport pick up until drop off. Depending on the how long the layover is we'll carry out one of the itineraries, you can modify them according to your preferences. Remember that, as this is a private tour, the itinerary can be modified according to the available time and your preferences.

When reserving you can choose between the following itineraries:

5 Hour Beijing Tour

We'll have 5 hours to visit locations such as Tiananmen Square, one of the main points in Beijing. We'll also discover the Forbidden City, the largest imperial residence in China and one of the most mysterious locations in the capital. 

6 Hour Great Wall Tour

With this tour, we'll have 6 hours free to explore the Great Wall of China (along the Mutianyu area). The option of visiting one of the Seven Modern Wonders of the World is always a hit with travellers. 

9 Hour Complete Tour

With this complete tour, you'll have 9 hours to visit both the Great Wall of China, Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City. If there's time, we'll also see the main shopping streets in Beijing or other landmarks such as the Temple of Heaven

Important: Layover Times

Bear in mind that the total roundtrip takes approximately 1 hour and a half, and we'll have to be back at the airport 2 hours and a half before the flight departure time. So, the time needed to carry out the tour will be 4 hours less than the layover. For example, 5-hour tour is recommended for a 9-hour layover.

Monument Timetables

Although the tour can be personalised, our itineraries are based on visiting the main monuments around Beijing. These are the following timetables for these locations:

  • The Forbidden City: High season 8:30 am - 4:30 pm; Low season 8:30 am - 3:30 pm. If your flight arrives after 12 pm you won't be able to visit. The Forbidden City is closed on Mondays, therefore if you arrive on this day we'll visit other monuments in Beijing.
  • The Great Wall of China: 8 am - 5:30 pm. If your flight arrives after 2 pm you won't be able to visit.
