We did a private Secret Beijing Tour and it was such a really cool way to get a unique look at Beijing food + culture. Loved it! quirky, interesting, something a bit different from your regular group tour

We did a tour with Shannon and it was great, one of the standout experiences of our time in China. We had a few food issues in our group but she was really flexible and tailored a private tour for us. Loved it.

For more than 50 USD per person, this tour was not worth it. We strolled along a couple of main streets and were not given too many details about the limited food we ate. The tour guide also brought us to people's doorways and it...More
