Beijing Layover Tour
, Feb 2020
We had an afternoon-overnight layover in Beijing. Our guide, Charlie, met us (with car and driver) at PEK arrivals. A good tour, good food and a dropoff at our airport hotel.

Anson was great, giving us a good history to Beijing and even his own personal memories of living in the Hutongs. His English was very, very good and he was full of answers to our questions. The tour gives a contrast of the very old with the very new and the reasons behind each of these. Anson did a great job of ordering local food Gluten Free and was very accommodating to our needs. A different tour of Beijing to the more traditional ones on offer.

Met at hotel by Alice and transported in comfortable modern car to sites. Unfortunately it was a rainy night and that put a damper on the tour. First stop Hutong and dinner. Alice was very knowledgeable about its history. Stopped into Hutong restaurant and had an enjoyable dinner. After dinner went touring to food market where there were many things to try. Went to Tiananmen Square and enjoyed the night lights and people. Then off to Olympic Park to see the Bird's Nest but it was not lite up so would pass on that. Then off to Hou Hai lake area and took in the bar scene and again raining and windy so less enjoyable but did some get pictures in. Our guide Alice was great, so sweet, considerate, and anxious to make a rainy night as pleasant as it could be. Alice shared her rain jacket and hat to keep wife dry. Overall a good night out.

I had a really enjoyable evening on this tour. My tour guide Evelyn was very knowledgeable about Beijing and the different neighbourhoods we went to. Seeing all the major sights eliminated in the evening was a great experience. One highlight was the dinner in a Hutong neighbourhood. One tip for future travellers, if you have the dinner and then go to Wangfujing Food Street afterwards, make sure you leave some room to be able to try the many delicacies on offer there.
