We had been in Beijing for four days but our visit didn't really begin until we took this tour. Jenny showed up right on time and led us through our evening's adventure. Great private van for a smooth ride to the restaurant. The experience was everything we hoped for. Exquisite setting, beautiful staff, delicious food and a great show. Must say that when I walked into the courtyard, it was so beautiful that it took my breath away. Then, as promised Jenny took us on the lake tour, which is really a visit to a lively area next to the lake. Every minute was filled with interesting details and we learned more about Beijing in those few hours than all the books we had read. Jenny becomes your instant friend in Beijing and you know you can trust anything she says. Just a great, great evening. Don't miss it.

Lily was our guide for this fun and informative evening out. The dining experience with the show was incredible. From artistic dance to the finer points of the tea ceremony, we stepped back into time. The location is palatial, with exquisite lighting and finely costumed servants, princes, and concubines. The food served is fresh and beautiful.
The Houhai bar area is frequented by locals and provides a romantic environment for a stroll along the river. There is one venue after the next with live music the likes of which we do not get in the US. And there are musical options for every one. Such talent!
We highly recommend this tour - and ask for Lily. She is amazing!!
This tour was amazing and we thoroughly enjoyed our experience. Lily collected us on time from our hotel and safely returned us at the end of the night.
She was a very helpful, considerate and friendly guide and chose excellent dishes and wine for our dining experience. The restaurant is set in beautiful gardens and the staff dress in traditional dress which adds to the atmosphere. The show had a variety of performers from traditional dancing to a tea ceremony.
After our wonderful meal Lily took us to the bar area along the river and we had a beer and listened to local performers which were very good.
A wonderful night and thank you so much Lily.
Wow, if you ask me if I would do this tour again, then yes definitely without question. Firstly our guide Lily was on time and met us in our hotel lobby. Lily was a friendly, cheerful and efficient guide who wanted us to enjoy our evening. She came with a driver to take us to the venues. Firstly we went to this amazing restaurant that entertained us with Chinese dancing, a tea ceremony, music, and face changing. Lily checked with us how we like our spice and ordered appropriately our fit for a prince meal. She kept to her word, the food was absolutely delicious and she ordered really well for us. This restaurant is one of the best in Beijing and has hosted a variety of VIP visitors from around the world. After a delicious meal we then went to a bar of our choice in an upbeat bar spot in Beijing. It was buzzing with music and people. We picked our bar a slighter quieter one - there is plenty of variety to pick from and enjoyed a beer until we were ready to be returned to our hotel. This is a tour designed to please and Lily our guide really looked after us and was good company with excellent local knowledge.
Lily was a tour guide, she was already waiting in the lobby when we came downstairs. When we arrived at the Restaurant it began to rain and the driver pulled an umbrella for us to use. Lily order for us and made wonderful choices, we ate too much haha! the restaurant in an amazing place, it used to be a palace and everyone dresses up. After dinner, Lily took us to see the rest of the garden in the palace.....BEAUTIFUL!!!!! Since my husband and I were very tired because we just arrived at Beijing that afternoon we decided not to do the Bar Tour but Lily wanted to make sure we were satisfied with the tour so we went to see some landmarks on the car while on our way to the hotel. It was a perfect evening with a perfect tour guide, make sure you ask for her next time you're in Beijing!
Good to experience imperial dining. Great food. I opted just for a quick foot tour of the houhai lake bar.
