  • Beijing: Old Beijing e-Bike Adventure

    1. Beijing: Old Beijing e-Bike Adventure

    Following your e-bike safety briefing, you will set out on the adventure. Starting with a practice lap around the surrounding Hutongs, your guides will teach you about the history of the Hutongs, including some interesting facts about who lived there. Once you're a pro at riding, head to Ghost Street to see where you should come back for some food, you may even see a ghost. Jump straight back into the Hutongs where you will navigate through some narrower streets to really get a feel for the culture. As you come out of those Hutongs, you'll see the gorgeous gateways and entrance to Lama Temple before crossing over the road to see one of the most beautiful streets in Old Beijing, Guozijian. This street is where you can give Confucius a wave if you catch his statue at the Confucius Temple. Following the temple, ride all the way along Guozijia, past the old academy where students would stud...

    I experienced working with Dominic twice. Once to rent an e-bike, which was well worth it on a hot day in Beijing! It was easy to get around, it was fun and he had great recommenations of what to do and see! I spent some time tooling around to see where things were, and hung out at the Houhai lake too! I also went on a Hutong tour with him where he showed me all the great hidden food places and was patient enough to wait while I pinned them on my map. He also shared good historical information which I appreciate as a history learner.

  • Beijing: Chaoyang Acrobatic Show with Optional Transfer

    2. Beijing: Chaoyang Acrobatic Show with Optional Transfer

    The Beijing Acrobatic Show is an awesome spectacle perfect for kids and adults alike. The show starts at 5:30 PM in low season, and 7:00 PM in high season at the Chaoyang Theater, and lasts for around 60-minutes. Once the show starts, enjoy a magic and breathtaking night of Chinese acrobatics, including gravity-defying contortionism, juggling, unicycling, chair-stacking and plate-spinning acts, and a lot more! If you choose, there is an option of private hotel pick-up and drop off from your hotel in Beijing city center.

    I booked through 'Get your Guide' and the process was very simple. In Beijing, it was a smooth process to show the e-tickets at the ticket counter outside the theatre and obtain actual tickets. One can easily commute via the subway. Just know which exit (C) to get off at. Theatre is 75 mts to the left when you exit. The show was fantastic and should be included in one's itinerary whilst in Beijing.

We booked the evening before and got excellent VIP seats in the middle of the room. Tickets must be picked up 30 minutes before the performance at the box office with the code provided.

Great way to explore old Beijing. Fun and informative. Would recommend for first day of arrival as the journey reveals great places to explore my foot during rest of stay. Thanks much!

Wonderful show, well located in the hall, no problem to take the tickets!

It was incredible. I was nervous for the performers! Wow!
