You will be picked up at the airport based on your given flight details. Our guide will hold your name sign in airport. Upon meeting on the spot, drive straight from Beijing Airport to the Great Wall at Mutianyu (1.5 hours drive)-the prettiest section in Beijing. After arrive at Mutianyu Great wall, you can hike up or take the cable car instead (pay extra), then enjoy hiking on the wall for 1-2 hours or so. Then drive back to the airport. Lovely tour ends. The whole trip will last for 5 hours or so.

Mutianyu Great Wall:
The Mutianyu section of the Great Wall is situated in Huairou District, about 70km from Beijing. As one of the most popular restored  great wall sections in Beijing, Mutianyu offers a relaxing journey to a higher point of the great wall by cable car service. The architecture of this section is in a special style that it has more watchtowers than any other section and was constructed with defensive battlements on both sides of the wall, rather than just facing to the north, as with most other sections.The Mutianyu Great Wall is surrounded mountains and has forest coverage of around 90%. As such, it’s year round scenery it enjoys the reputation of being one of the most beautiful areas of the Great Wall.

Note 1: Counting from your flight (international) lands at Beijing airport to meet us at the exit will take about 2 hours. It includes such procedures as follow:
1. Flight arrival;
2. Inspection & Quarantine (24-144 hour free visa application);
3. Baggage claim (could be ignored by layover passengers);
4. Customs inspection;

Note 2: As Great Wall is on the mountain top, so in order to let you speed up to the wall and see Great Wall as much as possible, we suggest you to use cable car instead of 40mins walk each way through mountain path. Save time & energy.

I think so. My flight arrived at 5am and left at 3pm in the same day and time was more than enough.

Not sure. I do know there are other trips to the Forbidden City and Tienamen Square. I suggest searching for Airport Layover Tours or Beijing Short Tours here on TripAdvisor and see what else they might offer. Have fun!
