We had 13 hrs layover in the Beijing and did the great wall and forbidden city tour. Herbie was our guide for the day and he made sure we had an amazing experience.
The entire tour was well organized and timed. Herbie was very knowledgeable about the history of the places we visited. He took really good pictures for us, apart from being an amazing guide, he is a really good photographer!!
Herbie also sure we had good food for lunch even though we are vegetarian. Overall it was an amazing experience and highly recommended.

Alice was our guide and was wonderful. She was informative, kind, thoughtful and welcoming. We were first at the Wall and there was no one there, it was wonderful! She new just where the best photo ops were everywhere we went. She also took pictures on her phone and later emailed them to me. My husband and I felt completely taken care of and loved every min. of our time with Alice during our 15 hour layover. The car was clean and well kept, there was water for us and the driver was fabulous. It was a memorable day! Best way to spend your long layover in Beijing!

I had a wonderful time joining this tour last June 7, 2019. Our tour guide, Lisa, is fantastic. She is fun to be with, not to mention that she is very knowledgeable of the history of every place we visit, from the Great Wall to Tian amen Square and Forbidden City. She make sure that each one of us in the group tour are comfortable and had a wonderful time. Thank you Lisa for the kind and wonderful hospitality.

In a short amount of time we were able to see the great Wall (must go down the slide), the forbidden city, Tiananmen Square, and try a quick authentic bite of food! Herbie was very kind, and always making sure we got in some photos to keep our memories! He gave us overviews of history and a great way to use up our layover time !

We had a 12 hour layover on our way to Phuket and I had a friend named Phil Calvert, telling me about the amazing layover tours you can do in China. I read up about this one and no wonder why it has 5 stars. Lisa did a great job taking us to the best photo op spot for the wall and she was present but also gave us space to marvel at the wall ourselves and take photos. She was patient throughout the trip and she provided a great history lesson not only on the Wall, but China in itself. The Forbidden City was extremely cool as well and she will give you a brief history lesson walking through Tiananmen Square on your way to the wall. The food at the Wall is average, but their hot tea is top notch! Definitely grab Starbucks where you will meet Lisa,

This tour was worth every penny! My teenage son and I had a great experience on this layover tour, from the moment we made our booking with Dan to the moment we met our tour guide Sandy and our driver Mr. Fung at our hotel. Everything went smoothly, and exactly how it was planned. We were worried about making it back to the airport on time for our flight but that was not a problem at all. Very informative trip, Sandy was really awesome at explaining everything (in fluent English). The ride was comfortable and we even had time to grab a bite despite the very tight schedule we opted for (just make sure to take the chairlift up to the Great Wall, it’s an additional CNY120/ person that will save you some time and energy). Amazing experience, highly recommend this tour!!!

We had lisa as our tour guide for our 2 Layover tour in Beijing! On both occasions, she did an amazing job! She served as our official translator, tour guide and photographer! She provided us with brief history of all the places we went to! Very informative! She took us to authentic Chinese restaurants for lunch! She’s always on time and accommodated all our requests! Also, this tour company gave us a very detailed instructions on how we can get a visa free permit and where to go after up to our meeting place. I highly recommend this company and Lisa as tour guide! Thanks for letting us experience Beijing without any hassle and stress at all!!
