Hutongs—narrow streets lined with courtyard houses—are the lifeblood of old Beijing and a rickshaw ride is the classic way to experience them. Skip the hassles of negotiating with drivers, most of whom don’t speak English, and join this convenient tour, with air-conditioned transfers direct from your hotel. Meet a local family in their home; sip tea at a traditional teahouse; and visit a silk factory if you wish.

We just booked one of the drivers off the street so did not book a recognized tour as such. It is quite funny, they all seem to wait for each other (ie: after a few of them have a booking) and then go off in a line together?. Our driver stopped off for a toilet stop (we

We walked around the Hutongs, along various narrow streets. The rickshaw ride thereafter was fun and definitely worth doing. Not as good as rickshaw ride in Delhi.

This was fun to do but there was only one stop for the driver to go to the bathroom. We photographed whatever we could shoot along the way. Thank goodness our guide had explained the history, etc of. HUTONGS.

This was a nice private trip although many of the places I felt obligated to buy things. I had a local phone number so the guide and driver were able to contact me to confirm my pick up time. We visited a silk factory to see how silk was made, but I felt very pressured to buy
