The tour guide was well informed about the sites, gave us enough information in each spot and really professional. Moreover, our guide was also gave us ample time to wander around the old courtyard of Hutong. We could enjoy the old style buildings of Beijing by taking rickshaw and took some pictures as memories. This was a wonderful experience.

First time visit Beijing as well as Hutong. My friends who worked in Beijing suggested this tour for me. I would like to follow her suggestion. Hutong rickshaw tour was interesting. My family and I, we enjoy the ride explored many old buildings around the complex. This was an excellent and value for money experience. Would recommend to anyone!

We recently visited Beijing and used Beijinglandscapes for our tour. We very please with this tour. We were picked up on time and we had a visit to the hutong area, the drum tower and bell tower. W also had a trip with the rickshaw, it was really good and funny, the rickshaw was very clean and decorated very beautiful. We had a visit to the Lama temple after lunch and it was really good, there were many people burn joss sticks and make a wish there! The tour guide explained the sightseeing along the tour and he was very knowledgeable and friendly. We had a very good trip, thanks.
