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?

I just completed a 4 hour tour this morning and can't wait to book again to take our visitors next week. It's a great way to see Beijing and the Hutongs. Very comfortable. Very professional and friendly company. I highly recommend this tour.

We had a four hour tour in the late afternoon, saw everything we wanted to see and more. Our guide, Chris, was fantastic and knowledgeable and had answers to all our questions. 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

Riding a sideway is an energetic awesome adventure, just the perfect way to visit The Great Wall of China. What really great about it is, the amazing sightseeing out of Beijing in a sidecar.

I only had 24 hours in Beijing, and Beijing Sideways was able to tailor their usual tours to fit my tight schedule and tourism desires. Additionally, there were some political issues in Beijing at the time that closed tourist attractions I wanted to see. My host and guide, Gael, accommodated these unexpected closures with a unique tour of the city... More

Fantastic experience. I cannot recommend this highly enough. My guide Gael was informative and good company. The picnic included a lovely bottle of red wine on the Great Wall. As an added bonus we were accompanied by his pet dog who seemed to have more fun than anyone. I was told she can't come on every trip so don't expect... More

It was amazing! I had change to be part of totally different traffic show and see everything from vip-seat. I gave free hands to my guide to drive... More

We only had 2 days in Beijing and wanted a quick overview of the city. We thought racing around Beijing sights by motorcycle would be perfect and we were right. It was cold, but we had dressed in layers and had warm coats, scarves, hats and mittens. My sister had a blanket in the sidecar as well. It was dusk... More
