What You Can Expect

Private Beijing Bike Tour at Night

Chairman Mao's Mausoleum at Night

Meet your guide in front of Drum Tower, then receive a safety briefing before starting your evening bicycle adventure in Beijing.

From Drum Tower, your guide leads you through a classic hutong — older alleyways lined with traditional courtyard residences — while sharing stories about the changes of modern-day development in Beijing. Pedal over to picturesque Shichahai Lake where the city lights reflect on the water, then ride past a mix of old buildings flanked by new restaurants, bars and shops.

A few minutes later, enter the lush oasis of Jingshan Park, where traditional Chinese temples and pavilions dot the green expanse. Your guide steers you to the Forbidden City; ride next to the moat and marvel at the sight of the imperial city glowing with light against the night sky. Continue to Tiananmen Square and enjoy the tranquility of this place at night while viewing Chairman Mao’s Mausoleum, Tiananmen Tower and the Great Hall of the People.

Take a break for some authentic local treats at Donghuamen Night Market and Wangfujing Snack Street where street vendors cook up a variety of tasty dishes from all over China. Stroll through the bustling stalls and sample some savory or sweet bites (own expense). Your guide is happy to offer recommendations and insights into local favorites.

Your final destination is Nanluoguxiang, an alleyway with traditional hutong courtyard houses, some that are 800 years old. The vibrant alleyway houses a collection of restaurants, bars, galleries and boutiques.

Expect a moderate ride that proceeds at a relaxed pace, with plenty of stops for conversation and photo ops. After enjoying the sights, sounds and snacks of nighttime Beijing, your guide returns you to your starting point where your tour ends.

The private bike tour around Beijing was excellent, even though the temperature was near freezing. The tour guide, Herbert, was very knowledgeable and took me to places I would not have found myself. It was an excellent cultural experience. I would highly recommend the tour!

Dean was our tour guide. His English was excellent and almost as important he was very personable. I really liked how he was willing to adjust the tour to myself and my daughters interest. We were a little nervous about biking in Beijing at night.....have no fears ....felt very safe! Biking for us personally is by far and away the best way to see a city.

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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2014

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!
