We were pleased to have lunch with wonderful guests in the Quadrangles of Beijing. The food was good and it was great to see a family home, passed down from previous generations and obviously treasured by the family today.

This is was my first time visiting and staying in the Hutongs of old Peking and what a find it was! I loved it! It is safe, it is colourful, it is authentic and it is the place for the kind of visitor to a city that doesn't necessarily rate themselves or the experiences they require as 'tourist' . This...

We had the rickshaw ride through the alleys of this old part of Beijing. Supposedly, the guide told us that this tour gives one an insight to how people here live in the older days here.They still do , for these people at least. We stopped by at one of the old house to look around the interior. And get... More

The houses we visited in the rickshaw ride were so pathetic. Weather cold. Public toilets which are your only access point deplorable.. Plus you have touts if you get stuck stick a gun up your face.. Better avoided and photos from the outside best taken.. Nothing great to see or reflect.

Having a Rickshaw Tour around the ancient alleyways of Beijing's Hutong neighborhood is very rewarding. Our tour group 'China Star Holiday' visited a family in one of the Quadrangles where a lunch was prepared for us.

Besides, the Great Wall, Forbidden City & Houhai Bar Street, i truly enjoyed the rickshaw ride through the Hutong. Courtesy of our tour guide, we got to visit an old hutong house and even had lunch in one of them where a local family lived & provided us with local meals. It felt as though i was stepping back into... More

A maze of tiny streets. Keep track of where you go. Rickshaw rides give you a tour and an overview of the place. They first asked for 200y, then 180y. I paid 80y by sticking to my bargaining. Once tour on rickshaw is over, you can walk the streets and go into quaint little shops. However, they are used to... More

I have been to Beijing twice and each visit offered a tour that included the Hutongs – the traditional single story residential areas of old Beijing . In both cases bicycle trishaws, manned by toiling peddlers, transported me and my fellow tourists through narrow lanes to the selected house where we were able to see how the locals live. On...
