Beijing Sideways provides you with a sideways look of China, Beijing and its surrounding.Aboard our vintage sidecar motorbike, we show the Beijing we love, without the crowds.This form of transportation allows us to be very flexible with our exploration, stopping easily whenever necessary, a very close proximity with the city and countryside where you can «almost touch» anything you see, but above all it’s a sightseeing wonder! Did we mention it’s extremely fun?

Believe the reviews! If you're considering booking the full day motorcycle sidecar tour to the Great Wall, just stop reading now and book it. Just spent nine days traveling around China and this was by far the highlight of my trip. There's no other way to experience China like this. Please forgo the massive tour buses and just hop into...

Being a bit scared of motorcycles, my fears were dispelled within the first few minutes. They have helmets for you and the Sidecar is comfortable and... More

We travel a lot and when ever possible add a tour of sights. This topped our expectations by far, to the point that we even found a restaurant... More
