    My partner and I landed in Beijing the night before and we wanted to experience Chinese cuisine the next day so we booked this tour in. Jimmy met us in the lobby of our hotel on time and with a friendly welcome. Together we walked and talked as he informed us of the history and lifestyle of those who live the city. Jimmy took some extra time to find a place that served donkey burgers, which were amazing to our surprise, before leading us to a variety of restaurants that were popular with the locals.
    We especially loved the walk through the Hutong's, where Jimmy explained the old ways in which the people used to live. Jimmy was also kind enough to walk us to the metro where he taught us how to purchase tickets and read the map.

    My partner and I loved this tour, we recommend this tour for anyone wanting to experience Beijing as a local!

    The best food tour we took in China. Our guide was Celia who met us at the entrance to the Metro. We found her to be very friendly, fun and quite knowledgeable about her city and its food. We first grabbed some takeout dumplings with skin so thin you could see thru it and brought them to a loud and authentic Mongolian hotpot place. The lamb and vegies were all good. From there it was onto an upscale rice wine bar for some delicious wine sampling. Yum!!!! Then onto donkey burgers - like small hamburgers except sweeter. She also introduced us to a favorite couple of street foods - one a crepe with fried tofu skin - out of this world and Mongolian yougert with honey. I would eat both of them every day if I could. After that we ate biang biang noodle soup with pork belly and vegies - good and the last was an old gambling den converted into a chicken wing place with fiery hot fried chicken wings. By the time we were done I was stuffed with great food and we were sad to say goodbye to Celia who was a terrific food guide! Do not miss this food tour! It is great!!

    We had an awesome tour with Kelly today! The food was very delicious, well-chosen and authentic. We enjoyed it a lot and will definitely recommend this great tour. Our lovely guide Kelly made this tour a special experience in our daily Beijing life :-)

    We visited Beijing in July 2019 (sorry for the late review!) Our tour guide Julia was very informative and was able to answer all of our, and our 7 year old daughters questions about the food and areas we walked through. We enjoyed so many of the different food options it's hard to choose a favourite, but what made the the experience was eating in the restaurants and little pop-ups in the back streets where the locals usually eat. I particularly loved walking through the Hutongs and seeing streets and alleys you probably wouldn't normally walk down if you were just visiting a city. I felt we saw the real side of Beijing and not just the popular sights! My family and I highly recommend this tour!!

    The Hutong tour was the culmination of our trip to China and was the perfect way to end our holiday The tour was extremely well organised and Jenny was the perfect guide. She has exceptional knowledge of the area and enhanced the experience helping choose foods suitable to our pallet and going the extra yard to make sure we experienced the real Beijing.
    We would highly recommend the tour and also the guide Jenny.

    Our family took the tour yesterday. Our guide was Lucy- super friendly lady with great English and huge knowledge about anything we asked about. We had great time with her. This tour is perfect- first you see the historic places in Beijing and then you taste some great foods in the hutongs. Lots of walking, so wear some comfortable shoes. Highly recommend to anyone!

    Review of Dennis the guide for “A small group Beijing Night Walking Tour” Friday August 10th.
    What he had to offer us was a walk down the main shopping Boulevard and Street, a crowded bus trip to a crowded Houtong and a tour of the Bars and Beer and Wine Street.
    However, we had expected, from experience with other tour guides in China, to receive information about the history, culture and development of the city as well as the daily lives of residents in Beijing. This information was sparsely forth coming, unless we questioned him. Very often, he didn’t know the answers. By taking ourselves on a Walking Tour the following day, we discovered interesting markets, artisans, and typical examples of daily Chinese life.
    It seemed to us that he had come with his own agenda that was totally unrelated to our needs, age group and interests. It is a pity that he did not follow the tour as outlined in your advertisement on the internet.

    Great driver and tour guide! Knowledgeable and friendly. The tour company was great in helping us tailor a tour to see exactly what we wished for in a very short time. For sure, right from the beginning of my web request I was able to get a personal and very detailed email back giving me all the details of my inquiry plus a sample of an itinerary that would be achievable within our time frame in China. What impressed me the most was the responsive nature of the travel consultant and the fact that everything they planned for us rolled out just as expected.

    Every day had a new memory of the destinations, their stories and the local Chinese food was so tasty, Best holiday we have ever had!! There is no hesitation in recommending any one to book with ChinaToursNet.com. Fantastic job well done everyone involved. Thanks again

    Be warned, the quantity of food was really generous so make sure you pace yourself!!! ☺️☺️ This was a great walking food tour in the Hutongs. Our guide Anson was very funny and explained the different food options really well to us and was great in being able to accommodate a couple of vegetarians in our group. As it was our first night in Beijing, he was kind enough to give us a quick lesson on how to use the Metro so we could get back to our hotel in one piece 😊

    We did this tour with Nico and could not recommend it more!! He took us to amazing spots for dumplings, noodles, and BBQ, with lots of great local beer as well. Easily the best meal of our entire trip. A must do when in Beijing - and make sure to request Nico!!

    My wife and I had a great experience. We were especially impressed by they way Tony took care of us. He made sure we arrived on time, took great care to get us seated with the right waitstaff and made sure we understood the menu. His white glove experience made the night wonderful.

    Catherine Lu was our private guide in Beijing and I highly recommend her. We were in Beijing for 4 nights in March -- she arranged all of our trips, day trips, transportation -- she met us at the airport and structured our visit to Beijing and arranged for return transportation to the airport. She is highly educated and knowledgeable about the history and culture of China and of Beijing and excited to present it to you. She is flexible and very child friendly as the smiles of our 11 year old daughter can well atttest in the photographs we took.. Catherine has a website which I would encourage you to view -- she has many photos of past tours she has led, large and small -- you can't fake the smiles on children! We went to Tienanmen Square, the Forbidden City, the Great Wall, Ming Tombs, among other sites. One of the highlights of our trip was a meal at a restaurant about a mile from the Forbidden City, a short taxi ride. The food was so delicious that we asked to return the next day for another meal. Catherine arrived promptly after breakfast and stayed with us until past dinner time, until she brought us back to the hotel. She arranged for a van and driver at reasonable rates. Another highlight was breakfast at a restaurant in a nearby (walking distance from the hotel) hutong -- breakfast for 4 (including Catherine) was $4 in total, which included 4 bottles of water. We learned a lot about China, its history, its culture from this very knowledgeable and dedicated woman. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing a private guide in Beijing, or in assistance in arranging tours in other cities. She recommended a guide for us in Shanghai (David) who I reviewed separately in another review.

    Our guide, Lucy, was fantastic! We tasted several regional cuisines and toured a hutong. Lucy was extremely helpful in describing the food and guiding us to places where the locals eat.
