What You Can Expect

Private Beijing Bike Tour at Night

Chairman Mao's Mausoleum at Night

Avoid the crowds on this relaxing guided bike ride through beautiful Beijing at night! After meeting your tour guide in front of the Drum Tower, hop on a bike and start your three-hour evening adventure in Beijing, where you can stop, take pictures and learn about the various sites you visit.

Follow your guide on a moderate ride along a hutong (an ancient alleyway lined with traditional courtyard residences) near Drum Tower and make your way to the scenic Shichahai Lake. See the lights beautifully reflected on the lake as you ride past ancient buildings coupled with modern restaurants, bars and shops.

After a few minutes of cycling, find yourself in beautiful Jingshan Park, where you can admire traditional Chinese temples and pavilions peeking behind the park's lush greeneries. Head toward the Forbidden City and ride alongside the moat as the imperial city looms in the background. Then, make your way to Tiananmen Square to see important structures like Tiananmen Tower, Chairman Mao’s Mausoleum and the Great Hall of the People. Enjoy this calm square at night and marvel at the city lights illuminating beyond.

Cycle over to Wangfujing Snack Street and enjoy the wonderful scents of street food vendors. Sample some local delicacies (own expense) to replenish yourself for your bike ride! Then, see past and present collide with a visit to Nanluoguxiang Alley, where modern boutiques, bars and restaurants stand on ancient streets beside traditional courtyard residences.

After enjoying the sights, smells, sounds and tastes of Beijing at night, your guide will lead you back to the original departure point.

My son had not ridden a bicycle in years, so we was not comfortable on his bike. Our tour guide, Dan, was very understanding and offered to make the tour a walking event instead. We likely missed a few sites, but Dan was great and was patient in walking with us through the sites all the way to Tienamen Square several miles away. It was great to see sites at night that we would also see in the day time a few days later. Dan was very engaging, information, and spoke great English.

Lucy the guide was a pleasure to have to show me around. Great way to see some of the highlights in a couple hours in the evening.

Yesterday was our first day in Beijing & we have already seen so much. We did your Private Bike Tour at Night & our guide was Amy. Amy was absolutely amazing. She was fun, thoughtful & so knowledgable about all of the local sights & customs. Her English was perfect which was a huge relief, as we don't speak the local language at all. We saw lots of the major attractions as well as tiny little crowded lane ways with so much culture & history. We are extremely glad that we did this tour & would recommend it to any newcomers to China. We give Amy a 5 star rating! 10 out of 10 for sure!

My tour guide was Annie, and she was awesome, and very patient with me (as my bike riding skills arent what they used to be). I was able to take lots of pics and felt safe while riding with her leading me.

It was awesome to see Beijing at night. However, if you know anything about the traffic, it was also scary to do. But, we had terrific guides who kept us safe and took us to great places to see at night. A totally different experience of Beijing and well worth it.
