Jeremiah the tour guide was incredible so knowledgeable about this place, the opium war, and the history of China. He answered my questions ( I asked a lot). I found the tour fascinating and made me want to learn more about this period in history. I don't think I would have known about this place if I hadn't seen it advertised on The Hutong WeChat page.

I've done classes with The Hutong before and once again they've amazed me with their professionalism and attention to detail. I participated in the Moon Cake cooking class and it was so much fun. Not only did we get to make moon cakes, but we also delved in the history and regional variations of them. It was the perfect way to spend the Mid-Autumn festival. Thanks for a fantastic time, can't wait to work with you again in the future!

I had a zoom cooking class with Sophia. From start to finish it was a great experience. The communication was quick, thorough, and personal. Everything I would be needing was anticipated- not only were recipes and an ingredient list provided, photos of each item along with both English and mandarin were included as well so shopping was easy. Zoom can be fickle, but despite the few glitches we had no problems. It was easy to see and hear, and it felt almost as if we were in the same room. The recipes were delicious! Though I’m an experienced cook, enjoyed learning new techniques and especially the background of the dishes we made. Is there a higher rating? I’d definitely give it if there were. 😊
