The Hutong tour was the culmination of our trip to China and was the perfect way to end our holiday The tour was extremely well organised and Jenny was the perfect guide. She has exceptional knowledge of the area and enhanced the experience helping choose foods suitable to our pallet and going the extra yard to make sure we experienced the real Beijing.
We would highly recommend the tour and also the guide Jenny.
Nico our guide was fantastic

My two college-aged sons and nephew, along with my 72-yr old mother and I, enjoyed a well-organized, adventurous tour with Nico. We could not have arranged this on our own. We made several stops in the hutong area that would have been impossible for us to configure on our own. Nico is culturally and linguistically knowledgable, bubbly, and energetic. My sons and I have a deep background in northern Chinese/Korean food, and the cuisine and drinks surpassed our expectations. It was a very appropriate tour for our funny little mix of a group. I highly recommend this option for experiencing the hutong in the old town area. We hope to see Nico again and meet his darling baby.

For the price I thought this was a group tour... well no! For the price I had a whole Nico (guide) for me alone! All the tour was great, the food was sooo good! My favorite was the donkey burger and the beer so cold! Nico was great and we had very nice conversation, thanks Nico!
