Mutianya Great Wall layover tour

Our tour guide was Linda and our driver was Soon. Linda was awesome, she spoke very clear English and was very knowledgeable about her country( History teacher ). Linda was very friendly, respectful and very helpful and accommodating to my older parents. After the great wall, we had an authentic Chinese lunch that was very good. We were tired and decided not to go to the forbidden City. Linda took us instead to a part of the city that had 700 year old neighborhood and showed us how people live, we also got to play games with the locals in a town square. After walking a bit we ended up in an area with all kinds of food and shops. My husband even tried a scorpion and we had some Ice cream. We love being totally emerged in the culture. for the great wall and lunch we didn't have enough YEN, So Linda payed for us until we were able to get YEN. This was one of the BEST tours we have ever had. We are very happy we decided to take this tour. Soon was also very polite and a very safe driver.
Beautiful Day in Beijing

All in all I had a wonderful stay because of my guide Linda. We went to the Wall, the forbidden city and to an old market - we had a great time. She knew a lot about history and showed me everything I wanted to see, she even made photos like a pro of me. I highly recommend this tour for any layober in PEK, it is worth every penny. Linda was kind and very lovely, she is the best!
Top option for making the most out of your layover time

Communication with the travel agency beforehand was excellent and as soon as we had arrived, our driver Fred was calling us to meet us at the arrival hall after we had finished the transit immigration process. Pease allow a time window for at least 1 hour for immigration.
It turned out that Fred was a friend of the Travel agency owner, who spoke excellent English and also knew perfectly where to go and what to see in Beijing to make the most out of our layover time.
Although he was not a guide he showed immense knowledge in Chinese history during out travel to the Great Wall. His suggestions on how to spend our limited amount of time where just perfect.
He also helped buying the tickets for all attractions we saw, which saved us valuable time.
After having a good time under best conditions at the Great Wall including a tea tasting ceremony at the governmental tea house we headed on to Beijing city center to see some more attractions.
Cause the forbidden city closes early during winter time, he showed us a pavillion located at the top of a park just opposite, where we could see beautiful, enlightened Beijing city in 360 degrees. We then headed on to a nearby Hutong to grab some typical chinese food, which was delicious. On our way back to the airport we passed huge Tianamen square and the impressive CBD of Beijing.
We are really thankful having made this tour, which gave us a wonderful introduction to our first time in China.
Thank you, Fred, for your valuable company. We really had a good time with you in Beijing.
Great experience!

Mt grown son and I had a 14 hour layover and wanted to experience Beijing. We were lucky and got Davis as our driver. He made our day special, so glad we decided to go with a driver we were able to relax, enjoy and learn about the area.
Beautiful day with a great guide
