This is not another walking tour. Your small group tour travels by private tuktuk and offers unlimited beer and soda while you and your English-speaking guide are whisked around the alleys of Beijing's hutongs to get off the beaten path. You will eat where the locals eat at small, family-run businesses and try the best local food at places you can’t find on your own. After 3-4 hours, you will finish at a popular local brewery to have a pint of the best craft brew in town.
A one-of-a-kind food and drink tour through Beijing's hutongs
Travel between five different food stops in a private tuk-tuk
Meet families keeping the city's food traditions alive while you munch on samples
Enjoy unlimited beer all night, including a craft bar in a local brewery
What to Expect
Beijing is a cutting-edge capital, but traditional ways of life can still be glimpsed in the old-world neighborhoods known as hutongs— and in the city's vibrant food culture. During this one-of-a-kind culinary tour, you’ll get an insider’s taste of Beijing's most beloved delicacies, bypassing the tourist track to discover under-the-radar, family-run restaurants that are usually only frequented by locals.
You’ll meet your guide and be whisked away on an unforgettable ride in a three-wheeler, known as a tuk-tuk. Enjoying unlimited local beer, you’ll head to up to five different food stops, where you’ll chat with local families and learn how they have kept alive delicious food specialties for generations. Get your fill of different samples at each station, from hand-pulled noodles to savory grilled meats.
Your guide will be on-hand to regale you with the history and culture of the different neighborhoods as you zip between stops. End the night at a local hutong bar for a taste of house-brewed craft beer. With groups capped at 10 people, you'll be guaranteed a personalized experience.

Tipping is not customary in China. Americans find this hard to understand as it is so much part of the culture in the USA. Here in China tipping is just not done, not for taxi drivers, hairdressers, restaurant staff, it is not expected. It has never been part of the financial system here and some people might even be offended if you offer a tip.
