Fantastic experience

My partner and I landed in Beijing the night before and we wanted to experience Chinese cuisine the next day so we booked this tour in. Jimmy met us in the lobby of our hotel on time and with a friendly welcome. Together we walked and talked as he informed us of the history and lifestyle of those who live the city. Jimmy took some extra time to find a place that served donkey burgers, which were amazing to our surprise, before leading us to a variety of restaurants that were popular with the locals.
We especially loved the walk through the Hutong's, where Jimmy explained the old ways in which the people used to live. Jimmy was also kind enough to walk us to the metro where he taught us how to purchase tickets and read the map.

My partner and I loved this tour, we recommend this tour for anyone wanting to experience Beijing as a local!
Great way to experience Chinese street food!

We have been to China a number of times, but have not have many opportunities to try street foods. It's a little hard if you're unfamiliar with the area to know which street foods to try and from where. Becky helped us a lot with that, in addition to providing any historical or cultural background that goes with the food. We were able to be as adventurous as we wanted, and felt encouraged to go outside our comfort zone. Would definitely recommend it!
Beijing private tour with Jimmy

I was a bit nervous since I was traveling alone, but Jimmy showed up 30 minutes early to pick me up at the hotel (note you can only be picked up at hotels within a certain distance from the tour area). He was super friendly and so easy to talk to. We ate a ton of delicious food and when I was too full we would walk a bit to make space for more :) At one point I asked if we would be eating food with red bean paste and he went out of his way to find a couple treats for me that weren’t part of the tour. I HIGHLY recommend this tour, with Jimmy.
Perfect local food tour
Mr_CGU, 05-01-2020
Anson was a perfect host for this local food tour the 3 of us booked for our first night in Beijing. He guided us to some great local food outlets in Dongsi, close to our hotel on Wangfujing street: Bejing lamb burger, Kebap (Eggplant Kebap was amazing), Szechuan soup and finished off with some new year's 'Donkey rolling on the ground' dessert.
Anson had a lot of great stories about the food and the neighborhood.
The tour was focused on good food in local down to earth restaurants and allowed each of us to eat to his/her level of adventure.
I also recommend to do the tour on the first night, as Anson gave us good tips where to head for the following nights.
Beijing Private Hutong Food Walking Tour
Doreen H, 01-01-2020
We are so glad we booked our Private Hutong Food Walking Tour with Viator. It was our very first day in Beijing. Our tour guide was Jimmy who we liked very much. He was friendly, informative and spoke English very well. It was hard to find people who speaks English in Beijing. He gave us an introduction of the hutongs, the alleyways in the traditional residential area of Beijing. We enjoyed it very much. He took us to many restaurants. We had a hot pot lunch with a large variety of seafood, meat and vegetables. We had another meal with chicken, noodles and vegetables. We got to try street food and watch them make our crepe sandwiches. We went to a place to try pork intestines which was their specialty. We also had excellent Xiao Long Bao at a dumpling restaurant. All four of us were stuffed. We made a mistake of eating breakfast in the morning before the tour. We had a great time. This is a perfect tour for an introduction to Beijing.
