Have a long layover in Beijing? Don’t bide your time at the airport—instead, use the opportunity to explore one of Beijing’s most characterful areas. Following pickup directly at the baggage carousel, head with your private guide to Old Beijing, the city’s historical heart. Wend your way along hutongs (atmospheric alleyways), glimpse the famed Drum and Bell Towers, wander along scenic lakes, and more. At the end of your tour, you’ll return directly to the airport.

After a little trouble contacting each other everything went very well. My guide, Ms Huang was very personable and engaging. She explained everything clearly and went above and beyond to please. I had never been to Beijing and I was so happy to be able to get a look at the old town area of Beijing during my 10 hour layover. It was very educational and extremely interesting. I also enjoyed the tea ceremony and all of the architecture of the old buildings. I would recommend this tour to anyone with a layover of 10 hours or more at the PEK. I would also recommend this tour to anyone wishing to take a tour of the old town area outside of the traditional tours of the Forbidden City and Summer Palace.
