Full description
Make the most of your time in transit in Beijing with an 8-hour private tour of either the Great Wall or Downtown Beijing. After meeting your guide in the arrivals hall of the airport, hop aboard a comfortable and clean car. Inform your guide which sights you wish to see and enjoy a fully customizable tour.

Some of the most popular sights in Beijing include the Forbidden City and Summer Palace or just the closest Great Wall section at Mutianyu. If you go to the Great Wall, take a 5.4-kilometer (3.4-mile hike) or make things easier by adding the return cable car tickets add-on before checkout.

See the hutongs of the old town area with alleys formed by lines of Siheyuan and traditional courtyard residences. Learn stories about the citizens of the Chinese capital and ancient emperors that once resided in the city.

Take the opportunity to see fantastic museums including the National Museum of China, the Capital Museum, and the Chinese Aviation Museum. Learn more about the ups and downs of Chinese history. If you are interested in getting some amazing architectural photos, make your way to the Beijing National Stadium, known as the Bird's Nest, or the Beijing National Aquatics Center.
