TOUR PREVIEW

SAMPLE CLASSIC BEIJING DISHES

From “chuanr” to “jarred yogurt”, Beijing’s snack scene is unrivalled. And you can’t leave Beijing without trying donkey burger – trust us, it’s so much better than you think!

GET SAUCED

Drink your fill of local beers and sample the world’s most popular liquor at each of our stops –you’ll learn the secret meaning behind ganbei (“cheers” in Chinese).

HEAD DEEP INTO THE HUTONGS

These wandering alleyways are bustling with local neighborhood life, and some of the best mom-and-pop shops are buried deep down the lanes.

LEARN THE HISTORY BEHIND THE DISHES

With more than 5,000 years of culinary history, China pairs its best dishes with great stories. Find out the legends behind the country’s original dumplings and the noodles with an impossible-to-write name.

MASTER THE DIP-BOIL METHOD

Learn to cook your lamb like a Mongolian warrior preparing for battle during the Yuan Dynasty. We’ll give you the recipe to recreate this great group meal when you’re back home.

DIETARY RESTRICTIONS

Non-meat eaters are more than welcome and will find plenty to eat. We will make substitutions where possible. (If you’d like to book this as a private tour that features only vegetarian or pescetarian food, please contact us.)

This tour offers a limited selection of dishes, but we are able to make some substitutions and add in excellent veg & tofu options at some stops.

We are not able to make substitutions for those with Celiac disease as soy sauce is very prevalent in our tour stops.

These allergies have not been a problem in the past, however we cannot guarantee that the utensils and other cooking tools used in the kitchen to prepare our food tour dishes have not touched any shellfish/nut ingredients. Please bring your epi pen or other meds to the tour if you choose to participate

“Famous for their breakfast, night market, and hands-on dumpling tours in Shanghai, UnTour has recently branched out to Beijing, and we went along to give their foodie tour a try. After the three-hour tour, you’ll not only be pleasantly full, but also well-versed in the stories behind every dish and hutong.
The Beijinger Magazine
Not only did Garth take us to interesting places, his knowledge of the local eateries and their specialties made this one of our exceptional experiences in Beijing. This was exactly what we were looking for to take us out of the normal tourist traps. It made us feel that we had a special experience and we certainly did.
