“This is a must in Beijing- highlight of the trip.”
Reviewed September 20, 2011

We booked a morning tour with Cycle China. It was absolutely brilliant. The 21 km ride was flat and easy. Our guide spoke English and gave us great info about the sights we passed including Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, Houhai lake and especially interesting was the Hutong area where the old houses and their history have been preserved. Great for getting your bearings in the city. Traffic is hectic or even frantic.. but we stuck with the guide and lived to tell the story! The shop was located opposite the east gate of Jingshan Park which was a great place to pass the afternoon with its fabulous views of the Forbidden City. All in all a great experience. Don't miss it.

“Great itinerary, unknowledgable guide”
Reviewed July 21, 2011

This cycling tour definitely takes you to all the must see places. The highlight was visiting the Summer palace and going to a tourist-free area of the great wall - magnificent scenery and so tranquil compared with the city. However there were a few negatives to the tour: although the guide spoke excellent English, his knowledge of the region was basic; the roadside hotel we stayed in at the base of the great wall was extremely basic and one can hear the passing traffic throughout the night very very well. We paid 2800 yuan pp and there was two of us. For this price, I felt that we could have perhaps done this tour with a private driver on our own in a little more luxury with a guide book by our side instead! Saying that, having a mandarin speaking person with you is advantageous.

“biking in beijing”
Reviewed June 10, 2011

I booked with beijing bikes and arrived to find it was just myself and the tour guide. I cant remember her name, she was 24 years old and just great! For the next 3 hours we weaved in and out of various different Hutongs. My guide stopped at different locations to talk about the different thinkgs we were seeing. It was a lovely relaxed and different way to see Beiijing.

“Very fun and informative.”
Reviewed July 24, 2010

Andy is the man! Full disclosure - my husband and I spent 5 days with Andy hiking on the Great Wall before we took his cycling tour. He knows the city - he was able to provide us with a unique experience visiting the major sights in Beijing and making sure we learned something along the way. The dedicated bicycle lanes along the main sections of Beijing make this tour a lot less scary than I initially anticipated, though there are a few left hand turns. Andy looked after the group - which included a few kids - with his usual calm and expertise.
We bumped into a few guys from Hong Kong who said this tour company was the place to use - not obtrusive and cheesy but enough hand holding to make your trip and easy one. We totally agree. I highly recommend using Cycle China.
