What a wonderful use of a layover! Our guide Herbie, was accommodating and informative. Though our flight was a bit earlier than most, he adjusted the schedule for us to have more time and picked us up promptly at our hotel. Herbie took us to multiple places on the wall and gave us a lot of historical information. He is also a blooming photographer and managed to get perfect photos right after sunrise! This layover trip was perfect and even better than the reviews indicated. Make the most of your time, and request Herbie to make your time unforgettable.

We're so glad we did this. We were on our way back from a 2 week trip to NZ, with a 10-hour layover in Beijing. We were pretty tired, but luckily the whole process was super easy.

Our tour guide was Lisa, who met us bang on time at Starbucks. We met her driver and then spent the next hour looking out at the early morning landscapes of Beijing, or snoozing in the back.

Lisa was very friendly, very knowledgable and answered all of our questions. She took us up on the ski lift to the wall (and even paid for us as we had no cash left - bring some cash!). The views were stunning and the wall was empty as it was so early in the morning. It was pretty cold, being early January, but that didn't detract from the impressive if slightly foggy views.

We explored for a good couple of hours before heading back down on what feels like a slightly unsafe luge, but it was good fun. This was about 10:30am, so it felt a bit strange doing such an attraction so early, but it was well worth it. At that time the vendors are still setting up so they mostly leave you alone, which is nice.

Highly recommended to all those with an 8+ hours layover. Well worth it.

Don’t you hate those awkward layovers of more than six or seven hours? Bad planning perhaps but also inevitable sometimes.

Beijinglayovertour.com is an amazing company based at the airport who organise short half and full day trips from airport to airport to the key Beijing places to see. You can book on the day of the trip so no chance of late flights ruining plans.

I had an amazing trip with Herbie our English speaking guide and a group of five strangers who he took the time to get to know and introduce to one another. Our trip to the wall was personal, informative, fun and almost team like.

Wonderful experience with a great guide.

Everything about this 'Layover' visit to the Great Wall went exactly as planned.
Herbie was there to meet us right where he said he would be. His instructions for getting a short-term visa were spot-on.
He and his driver got us to Mutianyu safely and Herbie accompanied us to the Wall where we had a great time & then later shared lunch together.
Herbie is professional & personable at the same time - he made our day.
Highly recommended!

From initial booking to completion of tour was amazing and well executed. The step by step directions for our Visa free visit to our prompt pick up by Herbie/driver made us feel very comfortable. Herbie got us to the great Wall early before all the buses full of tourists arrived which was an A++. He combined historical facts and embraced our tourist need to capture fun pics. Overall we spent 2 hours at the great Wall and We were able to take the skycable up and the slide down to save time. Herbie made our layover tour fun and well worth it, with a 1pm departure we were back at the airport with time to spare. I highly recommend!!

This is an excellent experience and worth the effort if you have a layover of 6+ hours. The tour company guide you step by step to gain a 24 hr transit visa (which is free). It’s very straight forward. Jade was a most gracious tour guide with excellent English. She was able to share the history of the Chinese dynasties that built this amazing wonder of the world.

I was a little worried about meeting our tour guide since we had no means of communication once we arrived in Beijing. However, our guide Herbie, found us sitting by the meeting point and was a great help in getting us organized and helping us get out some money so we can get lunch after seeing the wall. On the way to the wall he gave us lots of information not just about the wall but about China, culture, and the people. It was very informative and helped make the trip to the wall go by faster.

My husband and I booked a tour to the great wall as we had a 9hr layover in Beijing on 11 January . Tour was really easy to book and pay for and guide Herbie was punctual to pick up location Starbucks in terminal 3. We drove to the wall in around 1 hour and Herbie sorted all entrance tickets and helped us buy chairlift and tobogan passes. Herbie came with us the whole time taking pictures for us and giving us great info about history of wall. We loved him as a tour guide and were very pleased he was with us. Our experience was fabulous and we would love to tour with Herbie again in the future! Thank you!

We had a 9 hour layover in Beijing in the beginning of Jan 2019. Upon doing some researches in the internet, we decided to go with Beijing Layover Tour because there are many great reviews about them. I'm glad we made that choice. They gave very detailed and clear instructions on what to do upon landing so if you follow them, you'll save time and energy in getting the visa-free stamp and passing through immigration.

Our flight came early but luckily, Lisa, our guide also came earlier than the agreed meeting time so we didnt have to wait long.
Lisa is an awesome tour guide. She is very friendly, speaks English well and she voluntereed to take many wonderful pictures of our family in Great Wall. We're very happy she was our guide.

The section of Great Wall Lisa took us to was breathtakingly beautiful. We got up to the Great Wall with a cable-car--this could be a bit of a challenge if you have height phobia like me. But as the view was so beautiful, if you focus on the view--you'll do fine.

In short, if you have over 8 hours of layover in Beijing, do book a tour with this company. You'll be happy with the decision.
