We took a tour of the Hutong and had lunch at an elderly couples home. They welcomed us and had a fantastic assortment of local food. I enjoyed seeing where multiple generations of families lived in close corridors and can only imagine how the younger kids learned from older and wiser relatives. We enjoyed a rickshaw ride to and from... More

Explore the Beijing's ancient alleyways by pedicab-- what an experience-- the green light is only a suggestion--no one follows the road rules-- it was fun , saw the poverty within the streets-- sad to see.....

My husband and I and our two daughters, ages 8 and 12 loved this class! We arrived 30 minutes early because we were afraid we'd get lost but the directions on the website made it easy to find. The staff were so friendly--they welcomed us in and let us wait on the roof deck and served us delicious fresh plum... More

Difficult find just Goolge The Hutong, learn how to cook and I'm sure this place will be at the top of the list. Our son who lives in Beijing had looked up this place with his lovely Chinese Girlfriend and whilst given by the organisers excellent directions, they too found it by chance after asking local residents who told them...

We spotted The Hutong on Tripadvisor before we went to Beijing and already had our minds set on the hand-pulled noodles workshop. When we called a day before the class was initially cancelled due to lack of interest but as soon as we called they made the effort to put it back on the schedule. It's a bit difficult to... More

My husband and I just spend a month in Beijing and one of our favourite experiences was a cooking class at The Hutong. We were part of a group of about a dozen people who were shown how to make dumplings from scratch. We all made our own dough, rolled out the wrappers and stuffed them with two different types...

As a local expat living in Beijing, I couldn't recommend a better place for cooking classes or local tours than the Hutong. Naturally, when my parents planned a 10 day vacation in the capital, I signed them up for "Manchus in the Palace: A Walking Seminar at the Forbidden City" with Jeremiah. They were astonished at the quality and value... More

I did a dumpling class with Sophia and finally learnt how to make dumplings! Sophia made the class very interesting as well as instructive. The classroom is a lovely space to be in and it was also lots of fun.

Have just completed the Hutong's 7 day Xishuangbanna Bike tour in Yunnan. What an epic trip- incredible scenery, amazing food and wonderful people. Sure it was a challenge- lots of hills but that also meant some great downhill descents. Got to places a normal tourist wouldn't see. Highly recommended.

Fun experience as we learned to make dumplings and then we enjoyed with the new friends we'd made that day while learning.
