The company called me one before the tour and claimed that all rickshaw companies would not have to drive for the next two weeks due to a parade. So I got no tour of Hutongs!

Not much really to be seen or learned from the guide or the tour. You may be better off getting to the drum tower on your own.

An interesting tour. My 7yo son asked to do this tour cos he wanted to ride in a rickshaw. It was really cold though. The visit to a home in the hutong was enlightening, and we also enjoyed the visit to the drum tower. Our guide, Gale, was excellent. She was punctual in picking us up at our hotel, very knowledgeable about history, and spoke good English.

Had an amazing guide, Gale. She gave very detailed explanation. However, I realised she didn't take me to the Prince Gong's Mansion as stated in the tour details.

I am not sure what happened here. I was supposed to be with Wendy and then I was with a different guide. The tour was supposed to be for 4 hours. The tour was less the 1.5 hours and this was after my hour long taxi ride from my hotel. I asked to go to Tiananmen Square. The guide dropped me at the corner of a security check point. I was lost for about an hour. I a resourceful and figured things out. I would not book this tour again
