Do you want to make the most of your layover in Beijing? Explore the Great Wall of China and many more important landmarks around the Chinese capital with this Beijing Layover Tour.

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. 

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 the 9 hour layover, 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. 

For the 10 hour layover, 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 most prefered amongst travellers. 

For the 13 hour layover, we'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

Remember that, as this is a private tour, the itinerary can be modified according to the available time and your preferences.
