I have signed up my cruise with Sapphire Princess. I will disembark at the Tianjin Cruise port on October 7,2014. The ship docks at 4:00 am. I have booked my flight back to Vancouver, Canada departing the Beijing International airport around 4:00 pm. Do you have any tour that will pick me up from the cruise port, tour around the city before dropping me off at the airport around 2:00 pm on October 7. If you do provide such service, what is the per person rate for a party of 2. Looking forward to you early reply via email ta eileenwailing@gmail.com

Trip Advisor (Sep.09, 2014) replied:
After carefully checking your request, I would like to make some clarification about the time table as below: 1. Pick-up time: As our experience, the pick-up time will be 8:30-am-9:00am after immigration from this cruise. 2. Driving time from Tianjin Port to Beijing downtown: It will need about 3 hours driving. 3. Driving time from Beijing Downtown to the airport: About 1 hour driving 4. Arrival Time to the airport:For any international flight, the arrival time should be 2 hours before the flight takes off. That means, you should be at the airport at 2:00pm. Considering all, I am afraid that we have no more time to visit any scenic spot in Beijing. Please kindly understand. Thanks.

Do you have tours without hotel included for China locations? I would prefer to choose my own hotel and meet transportation every day for the tours.
