Reviewed August 18, 2017, A highlight of Beijing

We had a wonderful time on the tour with Leo this afternoon. He was knowledgeable and provided interesting information about the city and the history of Beijing. The visit to the hutong was a highlight, with a fascinating display of insects and a real showman discussing his history in cricket fighting. We loved every minute!

Good to know:

1. This tour is ideal for first-time visitors or anyone who wants to learn more (and see more) of this city’s sites.

2. The idea of the tour is to walk in-depth to see the hutong, we don’t organize rickshaws for the hutong. If you want to do it, we can help you arrange it.

3. If you travel here in summertime (Especially July and August), please try to make this tour in the afternoon, as Beijing summer is very hot.

4. There always have places to take a rest, and it is easy to buy food and drink on the way.

5. Take your own toilet paper. Because most of Beijing’s public toilets don’t offer it.

6. Tips are always appreciated by our guides but never expected. They should be given if you believe your guide did an outstanding job, and further, if you as an individual want to demonstrate your appreciation to the guide for that job well done. Usually, people give 30 to 60 RMB per person.
