Great Wall and Forbidden City Tour
, Dec 2019
We did a layover tour to the Great Wall and the Forbidden City. We had a 12 hour layover in Beijing after a 15 hour flight from Houston, Texas. We arrived in Beijing at 4:45am and after getting a temporary Visa (took approximately 1 1/2 hours) we met our tour guide and driver at a Starbucks in the airport. The drive to the Great Wall took about 1 1/2 hours. Our tour guide Sandy spoke excellent English and provided information along the way. It was a bright and sunny day at the Great Wall. Sandy gave us a lot of info about the history and construction of the Great Wall. We rode the chair lift up and down after we were finished. Our tour guide recommended that we not walk up because of snow on the way up, good tip as the steps were slippery. We stayed about 2 hours and then headed back to Beijing and the Forbidden City. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the history of the Forbidden City and was helpful taking pictures for us. We arrived back at the airport in plenty of time for our next flight. I highly recommend this tour.
