Beijing is a great place to sample typical Chinese cuisine, but most visitors only eat in the main tourist areas. This small-group tasting tour will take you along the twisting backstreets of Beijing’s atmospheric hutong neighborhoods for a delicious breakfast. Savor traditional treats such as "baozi" (steamed buns), "jianbing" (crepes), silken tofu, and almond pudding.

Beijing is the vibrant, history-filled capital of China, renowned for its diverse and delectable food. But you’ll have to get far off the tourist track to do it justice. Discover local, family-run establishments and authentic eateries during this insider’s dinner crawl through Old Beijing. You’ll take a guided stroll through one of the last surviving hutongs to taste the flavors that have fueled the city for millennia.

We're so happy to hear you enjoyed your time with Garth! And we're glad you enjoyed getting off the (b)eaten path to try the real Beijing food. Let us know if you make it back to China.

Amazing experience. Our guide Garth was great, super friendly and shared his in-depth knowledge about food in Beijing. Some of the places visited you would never be able to visit on your own. Absolutely recommend to book this tour while visiting Beijing.

Hi Sally. Yes, vegetarians can be accommodated on both our Old Beijing Dinner and Beijing Hutong Breakfast tours. We can't make a substitution for absolutely every dish, but you will still have plenty to eat.
