I had a 9 hour layover in Beijing when i fly from Los angeles to Bongkok, i found LAYOVER TOUR BEIJING after reading the tripadvisor reviews.
My tour guide was William and ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!! I inquired last minute and he was so accommodating. I flew with friends, but the tour guide they reached out to discouraged them from doing the tour with the toboggan option. William showed me that it was possible and he showed me parts of the Chinese culture along the way. He was even my personal photographer since I was by myself.
William’s professionalism included matching coats(so I would always be able to find him and I was cold) to allowing me to see parts of China in a way that I could take it all in, to good local food, oh and a goodie bag. I got a T-shirt and other Chinese souvenirs and I still had time to spare!! He even walked me back in the airport. I gained so much knowledge about the culture. I was able to toboggan, which was the best part of The Great Wall.
I took a chance on the tour because another tour guide said it wasn’t possible, and I’m oh so glad I did!! Best layover tour ever !!
