Owner description: 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?

“Not to be missed!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

My husband and I stayed at a hutong during our visit and thought we had already gotten the 'authentic Beijing' tour on our own. Nevertheless, we booked this side-car Beijing tour on our last day to see if we've missed anything. We are so glad we did! After seeing a list of places we have already been, Moeava put together a tour to show us all that we hadn't seen and what we appreciated the most was all the knowledge he had about Beijing. It would be hard to explore Beijing via taxi because the tour would take so much longer in traffic and there are hutong streets you simply won't be able to get through in a car. You also can't see what we saw on foot because he simply covered so much ground. We had a blast and learned so much. He had so many interesting facts and tidbits to share along the way about what we were seeing. It is clear that Beijing Sideways puts a lot of effort into creating a tour that is tailor-made to its client's interests. It's a splurge but well worth it. We highly recommend it!

“Beijing in a sidecar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

Had a great tour of Beijing with a different focus. I frequent visit Beijing but never toured this way. Mo, the driver and guide, was interesting and knows the hutongs very well. We had a 4 hour tour and enjoyed every minute. They were able to accommodate us with less than 24 hours of notice. I strongly recommend. Great way to see old Beijing.

“A great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

This is a truly unique experience. The guide does a fantastic job, making everything run smoothly for the guest: no rush, pleasant conversations, attention to details and the opportunity to enjoy that part of China in a very special way.

“Second time and still fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

I did a sidecar tour a couple years ago and had a blast. I returned to Beijing with my sister, who hates motorcycles, and we STILL had a blast. Moe, our guide, was funny, smart and knowledgable. A helluva driver, too.

Cannot recommend this highly enough.

“Beijing Sideways: money well spent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

We chose the "1 day wild great wall tour" and found it to be excellent value for money. Our drivers and guides - Guang Li and Kevin were professional, organised, knowledgeable and fun. They arrived bang on time (no mean feat in this crazily busy city) and swept us off for a fun-filled day. The Silver Pagodas were in a beautiful and serene setting - lovely after the madness of the city. We stopped for a quick cup of tea and a munch on some of the plants that Guang Li had collected en route and cooked up at the tea stop, before walking to the Great Wall. We walked along the wall, with ample opportunity for photo stops before taking a break for the yummy french picnic and delish bottle of red. Kevin did a great job of setting out the food and even created a mini table for us to eat off - nothing was too much trouble. He was knowledgeable and easy to get along with, with a wicked sense of humour. While we were walking along the wall, Guang Li was bringing the bikes round to meet us at our end point. On the way back, we stopped at the birds nest for some final photo opportunities. In short, this was a wonderful day out, well-organised, much fun and the guides were great company. I thoroughly recommend this company.
