We visited Beijing in July 2019 (sorry for the late review!) Our tour guide Julia was very informative and was able to answer all of our, and our 7 year old daughters questions about the food and areas we walked through. We enjoyed so many of the different food options it's hard to choose a favourite, but what made the the experience was eating in the restaurants and little pop-ups in the back streets where the locals usually eat. I particularly loved walking through the Hutongs and seeing streets and alleys you probably wouldn't normally walk down if you were just visiting a city. I felt we saw the real side of Beijing and not just the popular sights! My family and I highly recommend this tour!!

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.
