A stroll through Beijing’s Hutongs are recommended to every visitor to the capital, but locals know that “there are as many hutongs as there are hairs on an ox” around the city. The best way to get to know the most scenic twisting backstreets that locals call home is by eating your way through them, especially at the pop-up breakfast stalls that disappear after the morning rush hour. On this tour, you’ll meet your bilingual guide and small group at a convenient location, then head out to try traditional morning dishes side-by-side with the locals who love them.

Besides the Great Wall, this food tour was one of mine and my husband's favourite things to do. Julia is an incredible guide who is super friendly and helpful. The food and drinks we were able to taste were incredible and so authentic. I would highly recommend doing this tour when arriving in China as we did it at the end and wished we could have gone back to some of the restaurants we tried.

The best food tour we took in China. Our guide was Celia who met us at the entrance to the Metro. We found her to be very friendly, fun and quite knowledgeable about her city and its food. We first grabbed some takeout dumplings with skin so thin you could see thru it and brought them to a loud and authentic Mongolian hotpot place. The lamb and vegies were all good. From there it was onto an upscale rice wine bar for some delicious wine sampling. Yum!!!! Then onto donkey burgers - like small hamburgers except sweeter. She also introduced us to a favorite couple of street foods - one a crepe with fried tofu skin - out of this world and Mongolian yougert with honey. I would eat both of them every day if I could. After that we ate biang biang noodle soup with pork belly and vegies - good and the last was an old gambling den converted into a chicken wing place with fiery hot fried chicken wings. By the time we were done I was stuffed with great food and we were sad to say goodbye to Celia who was a terrific food guide! Do not miss this food tour! It is great!!

What a fun, authentic experience. I took this tour with my 13-year-old niece, and for both of us it was a highlight of Beijing. When I was in Beijing previously, I stayed in the hutong district, but this time I was on a tour and we stayed in a high-rise in the hotel district. This UnTour through the hutongs was the perfect antidote to the we-could-be-anywhere-in-the-world sensation which is the inevitable result of staying in Beiing's hotel district.

We booked this tour due to a recommendation of a colleague of mine. We did not regret this. Our tour guide Celia (a local from Beijing with perfect English skills) led us to places we usually wouldn't have entered or even recognized as a restaurant. The choice of food an drinks was superb. Our favourite was the Mongolian Hot Pot. Celia was really nice and added much to the atmosphere by explaining local customs, stories about the Hutongs and the history of the meals served. At the end of the day we ware totally stuffed and happy.

Celia was an amazing and knowledgeable host! She knows a lot about the history. She showed us around the magical hutongs and we tasted so many delicious typical Beijing foods of which many I hadn’t tried before but I can’t wait to have again. Also she showed us places where you would normally not end up. The group was fun - it was like hanging out with a group of friends. Book this tour! It’s worth it!
