    Our family had a fantastic time on the tour (it was my husband's birthday and I was looking for a last minute way to surprise him. Lost Plate (tour guide Flower) was really good to take us on a private tour with short notice and even pulled out a birthday cake at the last stop.

    Food highlights for me were the giant meatball dumplings that in 3 years in Beijing we'd never tried. The tuktuk rides were the highlight for the kids.

    Flower was a lovely guide and really accommodating, looking after our children's needs (ages 5 and 8) so we all had a great time.

    My partner and I landed in Beijing the night before and we wanted to experience Chinese cuisine the next day so we booked this tour in. Jimmy met us in the lobby of our hotel on time and with a friendly welcome. Together we walked and talked as he informed us of the history and lifestyle of those who live the city. Jimmy took some extra time to find a place that served donkey burgers, which were amazing to our surprise, before leading us to a variety of restaurants that were popular with the locals.
    We especially loved the walk through the Hutong's, where Jimmy explained the old ways in which the people used to live. Jimmy was also kind enough to walk us to the metro where he taught us how to purchase tickets and read the map.

    My partner and I loved this tour, we recommend this tour for anyone wanting to experience Beijing as a local!

    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!!

    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!!

    The Hutong tour was the culmination of our trip to China and was the perfect way to end our holiday The tour was extremely well organised and Jenny was the perfect guide. She has exceptional knowledge of the area and enhanced the experience helping choose foods suitable to our pallet and going the extra yard to make sure we experienced the real Beijing.
    We would highly recommend the tour and also the guide Jenny.

    Great driver and tour guide! Knowledgeable and friendly. The tour company was great in helping us tailor a tour to see exactly what we wished for in a very short time. For sure, right from the beginning of my web request I was able to get a personal and very detailed email back giving me all the details of my inquiry plus a sample of an itinerary that would be achievable within our time frame in China. What impressed me the most was the responsive nature of the travel consultant and the fact that everything they planned for us rolled out just as expected.

    Every day had a new memory of the destinations, their stories and the local Chinese food was so tasty, Best holiday we have ever had!! There is no hesitation in recommending any one to book with ChinaToursNet.com. Fantastic job well done everyone involved. Thanks again

    Our family took the tour yesterday. Our guide was Lucy- super friendly lady with great English and huge knowledge about anything we asked about. We had great time with her. This tour is perfect- first you see the historic places in Beijing and then you taste some great foods in the hutongs. Lots of walking, so wear some comfortable shoes. Highly recommend to anyone!

    Be warned, the quantity of food was really generous so make sure you pace yourself!!! ☺️☺️ This was a great walking food tour in the Hutongs. Our guide Anson was very funny and explained the different food options really well to us and was great in being able to accommodate a couple of vegetarians in our group. As it was our first night in Beijing, he was kind enough to give us a quick lesson on how to use the Metro so we could get back to our hotel in one piece 😊

    My wife and I had a great experience. We were especially impressed by they way Tony took care of us. He made sure we arrived on time, took great care to get us seated with the right waitstaff and made sure we understood the menu. His white glove experience made the night wonderful.

    We did this tour with Nico and could not recommend it more!! He took us to amazing spots for dumplings, noodles, and BBQ, with lots of great local beer as well. Easily the best meal of our entire trip. A must do when in Beijing - and make sure to request Nico!!

    Justin was amazing! You have a really good food tour around the Beijing's local food spot that you would likely miss and some interesting details about the food. But that is not all, Justin goes above and beyond as he introduces to you china in an authentic way (very interesting) as well as help you with your further visit in Beijing. He is not only a tour guide or someone that can help you with your adventure in china but he is also a friend. So with this tour and Justin, you will get more than what you have paid for!

    A very successful tour in Beijing. The tour company was professional, courteous and had one of the best customer service with knowledgeable and friendly driver and guide making it an all round fun time. We were picked up on time as scheduled. Patrick did a great job of explaining what to expect and he delivered. He also pointed out possible sites to visit that weren’t part of our tour and we appreciated the efforts as they became the highlight of the whole experience. The driver was on time for drop off and pickup and the time spent at each location was perfectly calculated. If we ever come back to China we will definitely call upon this travel agents. highly recommended

    Our guide, Lucy, was fantastic! We tasted several regional cuisines and toured a hutong. Lucy was extremely helpful in describing the food and guiding us to places where the locals eat.
