Hello We have an 11 hour layover in Beijing on 12 March 2020. We land at 14.45 and depart again the following day at 1.40 am. We'd like to take the Private Mutianyu trip. I have two questions: 1) is there still time to go in the afternoon - closing times etc? 2) What happens with checked luggage - we'll have two large cases and it wouldn't be appropriate to take them up the wall with us. Thank you Kind regards Julia
