What to Expect

Your guide, a Beijing insider, will take you to Dong Si, an under-the-radar neighborhood where Beijing food traditions still thrive. You’ll have a chance to eat like a local and get to know a one-of-a-kind community with stops at corner bakeries, out-of-the-way food shops, and family-run restaurants. Taste local delicacies, such as duck neck, fried ox tripe, and fried sugar cake, as you learn about the city’s vibrant culinary history, with your guide on hand to dish out answers to all of your burning food questions. Along the way, you’ll discover overlooked historical sights and picturesque neighborhoods that few tourists have a chance to experience. This is a private tour for just you and your party.
