    We had a great time! We were only in the Beijing city center one day and this tour hit all of the main attractions in a fun and efficient way. The highlight for me was seeing the large community of men and women over 60 playing games, exercising, and dancing at the Temple of Heaven in the morning. It was inspiring to see them enjoying the good life! as our guide said.

    We told our guide that we wanted to try Hot Pot and Beijing Peking Duck before we left China. He recommended a place near our hotel to have duck for dinner and then for lunch he took us to trendy/modern spot for Hot Pot in the mall. It was delicious, inexpensive, and very handy to have him there to order for us and tell us what to do!

    The Hutong area was very fun to see and the rickshaw ride made it even more enjoyable. It was a great day!
