Good food!

Anson was our tour guide. He spoke great English and had tons of knowledge about the neighborhoods we were walking in, which was also the location of our hotel. He gave us a variety of food choices, all delicious, but did give us the option to be more adventurous. We opted out of eating anything too exotic. We were so impressed with Anson, we signed up for a tour at the Forbidden City and requested him. He is extremely knowledgable about the history in China and tells it in a way that keeps things interesting.
A taste of real Chinese food

We were met by our guide Linda at our hotel. Linda took us on an amazing tour over more than 3 hours around Beijing. Linda was very pleasant and well educated to provide us with much information about what we ate at each location. TIP - Do not eat too much too early !! There are maybe 8 stops on the tour to sample food. We felt guilty towards the end as we were full and could only try the last few dishes. No pressure to eat the food though. Linda was very friendly and likeable and would recommend her for this tour. Thanks Linda !

Overall, we enjoyed the personable experience and the story telling. We had our tour with Anson. And he made the tour very personable for us. He brought us to places where we would not have gone on our own. My favorite part besides the eating was the little tour of the hutongs. He shared with us the significance of the door ways which made our trip to the forbidden city more relatable. Food wise though, we're from Los Angeles which already have a lot of similar food and this tour gave us a new insights about the cuisine.

This tour is AMAZING!

My girlfriend and I took this tour with Lucy and LOVED IT! It was just us three hanging out and walking through Hutong. It felt like exploring the city and spending time with a close friend. She was really nice, friendly, funny, knowledgeable, and welcoming.
1000% recommend to anyone visiting Beijing!
Fantastic time!

Becky was a fantastic guide. I’m only sad because we did this on our first night in town and I was so jet lagged that I wish I could have stayed longer and visited even more amazing food stops!
