The experience was ok but not great. Booking, schedule, bike, etc was everything on time and according to the add and staff was friendly. My tour guide was also freindly but he was kind of silent, he answered every question with detail but I had to ask, otherwise he would barely say anything. As this was not my first time in Beijing I guess I was not that impressed but at least this helped me to realize how easy is to rent a bike by yourself and explore the city.
This was truly a highlight. Tour guide Jerry was excellent - very knowledgeable, accomodating. It was informative, culturally enriching and while I could have biked it myself, it's far more confusing and wouldn't have been able to hone in on the landmarks as well. The stops were delightful as well - a must see view is the one from the top of Jinshaling Park. Highly recommend it - a unique perspective of a long standing rich part of the culture that is undergoing a transformation.
Our guide was really great and friendly. Not sure about his name, but I think his name is Jerry. He brought us cycling in small and quite street. Additionally, he has a broad knowledge about the history of China. You will get difference experince than joining normal trip to common touristic places.
Good fun!! This was a good way to spend the morning, a different way to see the sights. The pace we perfect so we could actually enjoy the sights. Our guide was knowledgeable and was able to give us a lot of information as well as answer our questions. One negative point was that the guide did not provide helmets, which I was not too happy about for our 10 year old child.
I absolutely loved my hutong bike tour! I was fortunate enough to have the tour all to myself and my guide was super informative and helpful. I had already seen some of the things on the tour and my guide was able to adjust the route so that I could see some new and exciting things.
I particularly liked that when visiting the museums I was left on my own to explore at my leisure. I enjoy wandering and this tour gave me the ability to do that.
Would 100 recommend to anyone visiting Beijing!
I was the guides only participant, which was a good thing. Especially crossing some of the major streets. Guide didn't talk much or give information. Not sure we hit all the locations mentioned in description, but did spend 1.25 hours of tour in the National Art Museum. Maybe this was due to the heat! Bikes were in good working order.
This was on of the highlights of our trip. It was an amazing day. Zach provided excellent directions to the meeting point in advance. Gerry our guide was brilliant taking us around the Hutongs, the art gallery and the park with a fantastic view of the forbidden city. A "must-do" activity in Beijing
