Explore the Great Wall and Tian'anmen Square, Forbidden City
If you have a layover in Beijing, use your time to see the city's highlights on this private, 9-hour tour. Hit Tian'anmen Square, the Forbidden City, and the Great Wall in a full day, maximizing your time by traveling in a private vehicle.
Pickup and drop-off according to your flight schedule in Beijing.
Begin your Beijing adventure with pickup at the airport according to your flight schedule. In the arrival hall, look for a private guide bearing a sign with your name on it, then transfer to a waiting vehicle with your luggage, which will be kept safe during your tour.
Set out for the Mutianyu section of the Great Wall, approximately 1. 5 hours away by car. Relax in your comfortable private vehicle and listen as I fill you in on the history of this site. Once you arrive, take the shuttle to the base of the mountain, then a cable car or ski lift (optional) to the wall itself. Spend the next several hours hiking and exploring on foot.
Return to Beijing to explore the city landmarks. In Tian'anmen Square, visit the Monument to the Peoples' Heroes and the National Museum of China, then pass through the gates to the Forbidden City. Once the imperial palace for the Ming and Qing dynasties, it is now home to the Palace Museum.
Then back to airport or hotel in Beijing

We had an amazing tour with Roy on a stopover in Beijing. Roy was definitely a 5 out of 5. We are a family of four, and he looked after us really well. His knowledge and his courtesy were top notch. I highly recommend Roy to you. The best tour guide we have ever had! Thanks so much, Roy.
