Other than the Great Wall trek, This tour was a highlight of my time in Beijing. There were only 2 other people on the tour and we went to a very local market. It was great to have a local that could speak the language and explain everything weird and wonderful to us. We had some sensational street food including Donkey burgers. I can't recommend it enough. If I ever return to Beijing I would to it again.

Great tour - very knowledgable and easy going tour leader. The size of the group was perfect as we were weaving through the markets which could be a little tight. Meeting point it very easy to find if your on the metro. No complaints!

4 star rating: Recommended June 2015

Our tour guide, Jerry, went above and beyond in sharing information and even helped us find our way back home on the subway! As far as food is concerned, we only went to two different places to try foods and spent a large time sitting in a restaurant trying various treats. There was a tour of the market that was interesting, but I would expect to try food from more places.

The tour guide got us lost at one point, the night market was closed but the food was exceptional, and the views weren't bad. There should be a further note that this tour requires a lot of walking, i mean a lot! Meeting a family in their home was quite the experience bring a trinket from your home town for them, like a US pin or MUG or frame it would be very special for them.
