Did we mention it’s extremely fun? « less

My boyfriend and I chose the "2 Day Grand Slam Tour" after a significant amount of "YOLO" talk. We spent 10 days in China (Beijing, Chengdu and Shanghai) and wanted to be sure we were getting the most out of our short stays in each town. I'll start with the *great* (because, for the majority of this review its a... More

Yesterday we had the opportunity to spend a lovely fall day touring Beijing with Sideways. We had a group of five including a 4 and 6 year old, a 30 something,and two 60+. Everyone loved it! I live in Beijing and this was by far the best local tour we have done. The sidecar motorcycles are very well suited for... More

You think motorcycle, you think dangerous, beards, gritty... This was far from that! This is truly an activity that everyone of all ages should try. We saw more of Beijing and the surroundings on this trip to the Great Wall than we would have ever gotten traveling by subway, foot, bus, or some other tour guide. The drivers were class... More

We flew over to China from Washington DC to have some fun and decided to do a motorcycle tour. I had my doubts at first about the tour, but I was wrong. Best tour ever!!!!! Amazing, professional driver named Gyle and a driver native to Beijing that took us safely to a remote part of the old wall (we saw... More

What a great way to get under the skin of Beijing, avoiding the obvious tourist traps and staying off the beaten track. Cesar and his drivers showed us the city's modern art and architecture and the historic Hutongs, where we grabbed lunch with the locals. If you tell Beijing Sideways what you are interested in they can tailor the tour... More

I love Beijing as a tourist destination. This massive city boasts more depth of character and breadth of history around every corner than any other Asian city that I have visited, and like any great city, some or the best parts are not placed overtly out on display on the main tourist trails. It was in the spirit of discovering... More

My husband and I reserved a private tour of the Great Wall of China during our visit to Beijing. Johanna was our tour guide, and she was wonderful! This tour was the highlight of our visit to China. You get to see the great wall without the crowds. I highly recommend this tour and Johanna as a guide.
