A 6-time veteran of the Shanghai UnTours, I was delighted to see that Beijing is now a destination for this excellent tour company. Meeting Garth, our guide, it was instantly clear that the dynamic duo behind UnTours (Kyle Long and Jamie Barys) had found a fellow food-drink-language-culture-travel polymath to lead their Beijing group. Garth was an engaging host who skillfully navigated the back streets of the hutong while fielding a wide-ranging set of questions from a diverse group of food-focused travelers. He was sensitive to the group interactions and interests. From a practical standpoint, although we were somewhat tired out from air travel that day, the tour included enough seated stops that we could regroup and push on. Also, bathroom stops were available. We learned a lot and came away feeling that we had seen a bit of the "real China" or, at least, the real Beijing. Garth generously stayed with us, working hard to hail a cab and explain directions to our out-of-the-way hotel to the driver. Also, the additional written information he provided - a feature of all Untours - was very helpful to use in the rest of our tour.. He even sent a follow-up email with a recipe we requested. Well done!!

Many thanks for your revisits and kind reviews. Great to hear you enjoyed the authentic food and the stories behind it with Garth. Experience and food culture sharing is always a big part of our tours, to put all guests in touch with the authentic Chinese food culture and history within 3 hours. Come and eat with us again in Shanghai or Beijing!

I did the hutong breakfast tour last month with MCK and it was amazing! I went home and booked another tour with Unfood for Shanghai that night.

Firstly, MCK was a great guide, and he seemed very passionate about the food and the place, which gave the whole tour a great energy. I was travelling solo, and MCK made me feel really welcome in the group, and we had some good conversations. Secondly the food was amazing, there were so many things I didn't know existed and they were all amazing. I really felt like we got off the beaten path to find some delicious local specialties.

I can't speak for the other Beijing tours, but the breakfast one was amazing and I highly recommend it. It's a great way to see the place and to experience Beijing like a local.

My husband, two teenage daughters and I took part in the Old Beijing Dinner tour and thought it was great! Katie was our guide and she led us to some out of the way places in the hutongs of Beijing where we tried some delicious food! We had a lot of fun walking around the hutongs, listening to Katie talk about life there and her own experiences living in Beijing. I would highly recommend this tour, as you go to places and try foods that you may not do if you were on your own. Everything was deilcious, especially the jianbing crepes! We also took part in the Shanghai food tour and it was quite different but just as good, so I would recommend doing both.
Katie very kindly found us a taxi at the end of the night to get us back to the hotel and we met some great people from around the world.

i went back for the old beijing dinner tour when i had a guest in town. we both enjoyed the walk around the hutongs with Garth, who just knows so much about beijing and the food! i was also pleasantly surprised that it was slightly different from my tour in october so it was not a complete repeat. i would send my future visitors here, and i definitely have to come back for the breakfast tour.
