Know More about this tour

Your tour will start from a pickup from your accommodation in downtown Beijing at 17:00, meet your private guide and begin your evening tour of Tiananmen square and around.

Walk through the Gate of Heavenly Peace, and see the bridges and columns lit up in lights. You'll get a whole new sense of Tiananmen square as it sparkles by night.

From here, stroll to Qianmen Street and the Dashilan commercial district. Set at the heart of the city, Qianmen is a famous pedestrian street with a history that dates back almost six centuries: many stores here are over 100 years old. As you wander, your guide will tell you the history, traditions, and legends of these places.

Just off Qianmen Street lies the expansive Lao She Teahouse, named for the novelist and dramatist Lao She (1899-1966), one of the leading Chinese writers of the twentieth century. His play Teahouse became a popular TV series in China.

Soak up the atmosphere in the teahouse, which has an elegant but unfussy style that feels like a return to Beijing life in the glory days of the 1930s. Enjoy a traditional show, which might be acrobatics or Beijing opera, sip authentic Chinese tea, and sample local desserts.

Your tour ends when the show finishes, at 9:20pm. Your guide can provide directions back to your hotel by Subway, help you find a taxi and give the driver directions, or recommend great bars and nightlife areas for you to explore independently.

    We had a great time with our guide Lucy. We started at the Square and the Gate of Forbidden City before walking to the Tiananmen Area to eat some local Food which Was great!!! Lucy told very nice and interesting things about the history of Beijing. The Teahouse Show was also great, i didnt understand anything but there are English subtitles and its good to get to know the Chinese Type of Theater and Show =) def recommend this Tour to small groups Just to See Beijing also from the other side

    I arrived in Beijing a few days before a business trip without having made many plans. I wanted to experience some of the performance culture and booked this tour largely for the event at the Teahouse. This was nice, but actually the tour with Jimmy was the real highlight. He was full of information about history, the modern city and the hutongs. When he learned of my interest in the hutongs, he changed the tour so we could avoid the tourist areas and we went deep into the hutongs south of Tiananmen. Absolutely fascinating and nothing I could have done on my own. A super experience!! Thanks!!
