Is the tour really free?

Absolutely FREE, and there is no hidden cost in the tour, so it is customary to give tips to the guides as a small token however this is not mandatory in any way.

Do I need to make a reservation?

It is highly advisable. We limit our groups to make your tour a more pleasurable experience, so you should try to make a reservation as early as possible. However, if there is space on a tour we will always try to accommodate everyone.

How long does the walking tour take?

The whole tour takes 3 hours. Include a short coffee break.

Do I need to bring anything?

We suggest you wear comfortable walking shoes and perhaps bring a bottle of water.

Where does the tour finish?

Our tour finishes at East Gate of Jingshan Park.

When should I take the tour?

We highly recommend you take the tour during your first evening in Beijing. It will prove to be an invaluable guide to making the best of your stay.

What time should I arrival?

Ideally we like everyone to arrive 10 minutes before a tour starts. We endeavour to get underway on time, so we appreciate it if you can try to keep to the allotted tour time. If you are running late please call us to let us know and we will do our best to hold up the tour for a reasonable period of time.

Do you stop for break?

We take up to a half hour break – depending on what the group decides – on all of our tours, and there are opportunities to purchase sandwiches/ drinks or to just work on your color if you so desire!

Do you have to be fit to take the walking tours?

No way. The reason we started this company is because we don't like hard work! Seriously, our tours are an opportunity to explore and discover Beijing, not a race around it. We also make frequent stops, so that you can enjoy that Kodak moment and listen to tales of Beijing past and present.
Anybody can enjoy our tours, no matter their fitness level.
