Fantastic way to spend 10 hours in Beijing
Nov. 2019
On realising we had a long layover in Beijing on the way back from the Philippines we started looking for something to do to fill the time and quickly came across Beijing Layover Tours. We booked via email, talking to Daniel who was very helpful in providing the best options for our times and confirming everything we needed to do to obtain the temporary visa.

We requested Herbie, having seen the other reviews on TA, and were not disappointed! He met us at the airport and was incredibly informative and had plenty of anecdotes to share. He also took us for the most incredible meal which exceeded expectations as well as being relatively cheap.

We were a little rushed at the end of our tour but it was 8pm on a Sunday so had to squeeze in Tiananmen Square before it closed. Herbie took us back to the airport wth plenty of time to spare for our flight.

Thanks again - we had a fab time and if we have another layover we'd definitely book a tour to another location!

Worth doing
Very much enjoyed visiting the Great Wall and Hutong city. Lisa was very professional as a guide. Well worth doing as a one day layover. Tour organisers went out of their way to accomodate our needs. Need US $ cash, not card to pay final payment.

Wonderful experience with fabulous guide
Mar. 2019 • Couples
We were two couples on the Holland America cruise line with two days layover in Beijing. After a lot of exchange of emails with Anne Lee, we concluded we would spend the night in Beijing. She impressed upon us that spending 3 hours to & fro from Tianjin is not worth. By spending the night in Beijing you save 6 hours of travel time.

I initially had apprehension about spending the night in Beijing Hotel but that was totally unfounded Sunworld Hotel was good, nice & clean.

We first went to the Mutianyu section of the great wall, a very wise choice as it was not so much crowded compared to sections closer to Beijing. The wall invokes awe and makes you wonder how they must have built it almost 20,000 Km of it. One tip, take the cable car to reach up to the top if you are a senior citizen like us. Ther after went to summer palace. We savored the evening in Bejing by taking the stroll along the central district.

Next day was Tianman square, forbidden city and ride in Rickshaw in Hutong. But what made our experience really great was Jade, our guide. Extremely knowledgable, friendly and considerate. She would match her pace with us laggards, carry our bags and give helping hand to climb. We were vegetarian and she located an authentic Chinese Buddhist restaurant. We had made a remark in passing about the use of various sauces that they use & the next day she had bought some on her own and gave it to us. No praise is good enough.

Amazing Tour & Guide!!
Mar. 2019 • Family
The entire tour was well planned and executed! Herbie was waiting at the Starbucks as promised, in fact our flight landed early and he was already there waiting. He was incredibly informative, funny, and honest throughout the entire day. Ensured that we were always on time for everything, and when plans fell through he made sure there were still ways that we would get to see and experience everything. He knew all the best spots for taking pictures on the wall. We got to experience authentic Beijing with Herbie and would highly recommend having a tour with him. He is amazing! And Mr. Mao our driver was pretty awesome too.

Fabulous guide and tour
Dec. 2018 • Family
Lisa Song was our tour guide on this layover tour. It was a wonderful way to spend our wait in Beijing and Lisa is a fantastic guide. Informative, friendly, patient. I can't recommend this experience enough. It was such a rich way to start our month long holiday and the perfect way to break up a long journey from Australasia to Europe.
