Full description
Discover Beijing by bike. Cycle the old alleyways of China’s capital known as hutongs, home to many of Beijing's residents, shops, markets, temples, and historic buildings. Although modernizing at a rapid pace, China's capital still preserves its ancient and traditional heart in the winding alleyways and backstreets around the Forbidden City. Witness traditional way of life, and stop off at a local market to learn about traditional ingredients in Chinese cooking. Visit a very well preserved Hutong family home and enjoy an authentic Chinese lunch, cooked with love by the family themselves and chat to them about life in Beijing.  Hop back on to your bikes and continue our cycling journey through the hutongs until you are back at the drum tower. Then get on the public bus for a 15 minute ride back to the bike rental place, as your guide points out more of the city’s historic landmarks and top foodie joints.

Great biking tour with Lili

I had a really nice biking trip with my Chinese guide Lili. I was the only one who subscribed so it was just me and Lili. She showed me some of the off the beaten track spots of Beijing and besides that, we had some interesting conversations about Chinese culture. She taught me some Chinese language too and helped me to get some stuff from the pharmacy and to rent a bike for another day, very kind. Great tour.

Guide didn't tell anything about the city

Sadly our guide didn't tell us anything about the city. He just cycled in front of us, and nearly never stopped, so the tour finished two hours earlier than it should actually last. I wouldn't recommend him!
