Beijing Sideways provides you with a sideways look of China, Beijing and its surrounding.Aboard our vintage sidecar motorbike, we show the Beijing we love, without the crowds.This form of transportation allows us to be very flexible with our exploration, stopping easily whenever necessary, a very close proximity with the city and countryside where you can «almost touch» anything you see, but above all it’s a sightseeing wonder! Did we mention it’s extremely fun?

A colleague and I had a Saturday morning free at the end of a week-long visit to China. I'd done a side-car trip to the Great Wall a few years back, and wanted to see more of the older parts of Bejing (Hutongs, etc). We were staying at the Hilton at the Beijing Airport - and Lidan gave us excellent... More

I had great time with my lovely guide! It takes a while to get to the great wall but the food is definitely worth it. On the one side you can see the beautiful countryside and on the other the wall is almost completely deserted. I hardly saw anybody around and the wall is almost not renovated at this part... More

Do it, you won't forget it! I wanted to do something special to see the great wall, away from the touristy areas. I certainly picked the right company. This was a great experience, worth the money. I will use them again.

I want to thanks Bejing sideways and Gaël for this amazing excursion. It has been a blast, the drive accross old hutongs, lakes, temple, cbd, etc ... in other words every interesting place to see has been a real pleasure. Allows you to see other part of this huge city. So I strongly recommend to all of you to go... More

I never thought that I would explore Beijing on a motorcycle side-car, however it was amazing. It is the perfect way to see the city. You are literally right next to all of the attractions and temples, other bike riders, and zipping through the city streets. We were able to explore both old and new Beijing. We were able to...

It was one of the highlight of my trip and something i will always remember. I am planning to go back to China, and will use... More

This is one of the best excursions that I've been on. There are many opportunities to see the Great Wall when in Beijing, but few take you to a remote area. If you're looking for the Great Wall's version of Disney World, don't go on this excursion. If your'e looking for a unique, memorable experience and the feeling as though... More

The E-Kick Scooter Tour was an incredibly fun way to see Old Beijing. The versatility of the scooters allowed us to zig-zag through dozens of small hutongs that wouldn't have been accessible in other vehicles. The scooters were so easy to operate, I could pay attention to everything around me without being distracted by 'driving.' Gael knows the city inside... More

Having visited Shanghai and taken a similar tour I decided in the short time available to us this would be the only way to see Beijing. Booking was easy enough and I paid a 30% deposit via PayPal , the balance due at the end of the tour. We were meet by Gael the owner of the company ( a... More

I had the pleasure of spending a day in the countryside outside of Beijing in the side car of a vintage 1935 reproduction motorcycle piloted by Gael. He customized what I wanted to see and we had a awesome lunch of food picked up at a local store and prepared be Gael. The day included the Hutongs, the Pagodas and... More
