Beijing's Hutong neighborhood of small alleys is too small for a tour bus, and, really, too small even for automobiles; rickshaw is the ideal mode of transportation. The opportunity to visit a real home in this neighborhood is extraordinary.

We then had to go to tea ceremony,Lunch was terrible as usual on these tours.
