What you'll do

Meet your host at an easy-to-find central location near Beijing’s Lama Temple. Then set off by private tuk-tuk into the alleys and courtyards of the city’s old hutongs — Beijing’s original residential districts. Absorb the historical atmosphere and as you explore, learn about traditional daily life here, including local cuisine. Delve into the bustling lanes and enjoy up to four food stops to sample local specialities, heading off the beaten path to small family restaurants that you wouldn’t find on your own. At each stop, sample a local staple and learn how it’s been made in the same way for generations. Dishes may vary, but expect to savor noodles, grill meat on open flames, and wrap ingredients into freshly made Beijing wraps. Between tastings, chat with your host over unlimited local beer and sodas, and finish with one of Beijing’s best craft beers at this hutong bar and enjoy a glass of your chosen brew.

Where you'll be

Most of the places that we visit on the tour are small family-run eateries that are open for a long time and frequented by locals. We visit the same eateries every night on the tour so we know that the food is safe and consistent in quality. The bar that we visit at the end of the tour is family friendly.
