Ms. said:

My husband and I are interested in the Great Wall and Forbidden City layover tour with tour guides Qing and Chen.  We are arriving on July 1 at 11:45am and departing July 2 at 8:45am from the Peking airport.  We were wondering how much additional would it cost to also see a show like a kung fu or acrobat show in the evening?

Thank you!
