You need a China transit visa for Beijing because you leave the airport. If you don't take this short tour in Beijing, you don't need a China transit visa.

There is another option, you can try to apply for 24 hours stay permit at the airport when you arrive, once you get it, you can go to visit the Great Wall during the 10 hours, if you can't get it, just stay in the airport to wait for the connecting flight.
