Beijing Layover Tour
Henry_T, 24-02-2020
We had an afternoon-overnight layover in Beijing. Our guide, Charlie, met us (with car and driver) at PEK arrivals. A good tour, good food and a dropoff at our airport hotel.
Highly recommend this tour!

Jimmy was our tour guide and he was exceptional! He spoke fluent English, was flexible by including a stop at a favorite shop in the Hutong district, took us to dinner at a wonderful, local eatery in which we were the only tourists and the food was delicious, took our pictures, explained the history and Chinese culture from a young person's point of view, and was punctual, professional and fun to be around! Highly recommend!
Wonderful tour

Our tour guide Jimmy was exceptional. He picked us up at our hotel on time. We had a nice dinner and then had the evening tour. Beijing is magical at night especially the Bird's nest. We did this excursion the day we arrived in Beijing after a very long flight. It was a great start of a wonderful trip.
Amazing night tour and guide

Gives two contrasting views of Beijing - Old Hutong and the New

Anson was great, giving us a good history to Beijing and even his own personal memories of living in the Hutongs. His English was very, very good and he was full of answers to our questions. The tour gives a contrast of the very old with the very new and the reasons behind each of these. Anson did a great job of ordering local food Gluten Free and was very accommodating to our needs. A different tour of Beijing to the more traditional ones on offer.
