After late-afternoon pickup from your central Beijing hotel, travel by air-conditioned vehicle to the start point, and meet your guide and small group of no more than nine.
Then, start your 4-hour walking and tuk-tuk food tour. Learn about Beijing’s culinary heritage and how its traditional foods are as much of a window on the city as its tourist landmarks. Head for the city’s hutongs — old alleyways and simple courtyard homes that form Beijing’s historical residential heart. Hear about these fast-disappearing neighborhoods and how they are great for discovering the city’s classic foods.
Ride a tuk-tuk through the alleys, and enjoy up to five food stops, avoiding tourist-traps in favour of hidden eateries beloved by the locals.
Among other treats, flash-grill your own meats on an open flame, try home-cooked food at a private family home, and wrap delicious ingredients in fresh Beijing pancakes. Your tastings will amount to dinner, and include unlimited sodas and beers if you wish.
Finally, visit a local brewery, and sample the best craft brew before enjoying a glass of your choice. Your tour ends here, leaving you to continue exploring or return to your hotel independently, with directions from your guide.
Please note: Start and end times on this tour may vary depending on traffic and road conditions.
