Perfect Layover Tour with Alice
karla552, 21-01-2020
I had long layover in china on my way to Thailand from the USA. Instructions via email were quick and easy no understand. We had no issue with getting out of the airport and meeting our guide Alice. Guide was very pleasant and informative. When we got there there was very few people it was perfect. The chair lift was very nice and peaceful. Lots of laughs and good views. We walked a few of the stations and took pictures. Alice was very good at taking pictures of us. The weather was very cold but sunny and crispy with no wind! At fist we were a little cold but we warmed up quickly. Jackets were provided in addition to the ones we had. Small negative the jackets were extremely big.. i took it off to take some of the pics. By the time we were heading back down via the same way chair lift due to tobogan closed due to weather maintenance large groups of tourist arrived. It got crowded very fast.
I would have liked to have walked a little bit more but i understand we were on a schedule. We then headed to forbidden city were Alice gave us some history and again took soon pretty pictures. I highly recommend both places when on a layover. Great way to spend the day. We went to a local place for lunch it was absolutely delicious and felt very authentic. Cant remember our driver but she was great my mom and I felt very safe. Price of the tour Is a bit high but we did choose the private option.
AWESOME layover tour to Great Wall & Forbidden City with HERBIE!

I was on a long layover on my way back to the USA from Thailand and stopped in Beijing. I heard about this layover tour from my girlfriend, who had done it a few months ago. Herbie was my guide and did a terrific job! He speaks GREAT english and was fun and easy to spend the day with (I was by myself). He picked me up with my name on a sign as soon as I exited customs and took me out to a nice, clean sedan with a very nice driver. He is very informative and kept my attention all day, despite being on zero hours of sleep. After the Wall, he took me for the best dumplings I've ever had in my life! I ate 29 of them! We had a great day laughing and sightseeing and then he took me back to the airport for my flight to the USA. 100% recommend a tour with Herbie if you're flying through PEK!
Two great days with Herbie!

We had 2 layovers on the way to and from Australia, and decided we would like to see some of Beijing instead of waiting round in the airport. We did mutianyu Great Wall with Hutong on the way, and summer palace with Tiananmen Square and the forbidden city on the way back.
The instructions to get the visa and where to meet the guide were very clear, the only difficulty was that on our return flight we landed in a different gate and it was harder to find the desk, but after asking airport staff we found the desk.
Our guide was Herbie, we were lucky enough to find out that Herbie would also be our guide for the return journey layover. Herbie is a brilliant guide, very knowledgeable, friendly and a great photographer! We couldn’t have asked for a better experience or guide, it’s amazing how much you can fit into a layover!
Amazing Layover Tour

My wife and I had 12 hours of layover in Beijing and really wanted to see the Great Wall. We contacted this company and they made all the arrangements so seamless and even sent detailed instructions for exit from the airport. Our tour guide Herbie was so fun and knowledgeable, he really made our experience amazing. We got to see the Great Wall, Tiananmen Square, and the Forbidden City. Highly recommend this tour.
