Our journey begins at the iconic Drum Tower, a symbol of Beijing's rich heritage. Immerse yourself in the history and architectural splendor of this ancient structure as we witness the mesmerizing views of the cityscape from its elevated position. Our tour guide will meet you in front of the ticket office of Drum Tower. The Drum Tower is an ancient building that dates back to 1272, during the reign of Kublai Khan, and was located in the heart of the Yuan capital Dadu. Originally called the Tower of Orderly Administration (Qizhenglou), it underwent renovations during the Ming and Qing dynasties. In 1420, during the reign of the Yongle Emperor of the Ming dynasty, the tower was rebuilt to the east of its original location. Then, in 1800, during the reign of the Jiaqing Emperor of the Qing dynasty, the building underwent large-scale renovations. Today, the Drum Tower is a popular tourist attraction in Beijing, known for its impressive architecture and cultural significance.

Review of Dennis the guide for “A small group Beijing Night Walking Tour” Friday August 10th. What he had to offer us was a walk down the main shopping Boulevard and Street, a crowded bus trip to a crowded Houtong and a tour of the Bars and Beer and Wine Street. However, we had expected, from experience with other tour guides in China, to receive information about the history, culture and development of the city as well as the daily lives of residents in Beijing. This information was sparsely forth coming, unless we questioned him. Very often, he didn’t know the answers. By taking ourselves on a Walking Tour the following day, we discovered interesting markets, artisans, and typical examples of daily Chinese life. It seemed to us that he had come with his own agenda that was totally unrelated to our needs, age group and interests. It is a pity that he did not follow the tour as outlined in your advertisement on the internet.

We had the tour to ourselves and Dean was a very professional guide showing us the sights. The route was a bit disappointing as we went through a lot of tourist traps and it wasn’t what we were expecting based on the description. Having said that Dean offered a lot of insight into the people, culture and history of Beijing and was a very knowledgable guide.

Gina S

<p>Tour guide was very knowledgeable, flexible, and patient. She offered a lot of great ideas for shopping gifts, sovenoirs and information about the area religions, culture, history, and architecture. She was even able to get me in a secured area to view. The walk was normal pace and great exercise. I highly recommend this guide and the tour. It will show you the hidden back street night life and capitalism in Beijing.</p>

Shaun K

<p>This was really good to get a feel of the local markets in Beijing. I was solo on this tour and had the guide to myself which was great. The guide assisted with bartering of prices and understanding of what the food on display was! Great guide with local knowledge.</p>

<p>This tour was a lot of walking. I was not expecting a three mile walk just to get from Snack Street to the Drum and Bell Tower. I loved the destination once we arrived, but walking in China, when you are not use to the streets and the pavement was a bit too much. We had a tour with 7 people and the tour guide went at our pace and stopped when someone needed to rest. I was very thankful the tour was limited to our group exclusively. The guide was incredibly informative and personable. His English was very easy to understand. Great experience, but again..... A lot of walking a little over 5 miles from Sunworld Dynasty Hotel to the end of the tour at Qianhai Park</p>

Cyril Y

<p>A great way to see parts of the city that tourists don't often see. The guide,Dean, could have been more forthcoming with his explanations but answered all our questions.</p>

Korey B

<p>Maybe it was the weather affecting our review because it was so hot, but this tour basically consisted of walking down the shopping street in Beijing, the snack street where our guide couldn't even recommend anything because she 'doesn't eat this food', then walking forever to again walk down an overcrowded shopping street. Nothing of substance, could have done the same thing on our own. In fact, the 4 college girls that started following us were more helpful than the actual guide...when the guide got us lost.</p>

arienne_H

<p>Delightful! This walking tour was quite honestly one of the highlights of my entire trip to China. Dean was lovely, well versed and delightful! He showed us Beijing as the locals do, and made it absolutely enchanting! Well done Dean!</p>

Vanessa V

<p>Unfortunately the tour is not done by a real guide ... Always the same comments, very kind girl by the way.</p>

Johanna

<p>I think the tour was worth doing and showed some hidden sides of Beijing. The guide was very pleasant but at times hard to understand.</p>
