Avoid the crowds on this relaxing guided bike ride through beautiful Beijing at night! After meeting your tour guide in front of the Drum Tower, hop on a bike and start your three-hour evening adventure in Beijing, where you can stop, take pictures and learn about the various sites you visit.

Follow your guide on a moderate ride along a hutong (an ancient alleyway lined with traditional courtyard residences) near Drum Tower and make your way to the scenic Shichahai Lake. See the lights beautifully reflected on the lake as you ride past ancient buildings coupled with modern restaurants, bars and shops.

After a few minutes of cycling, find yourself in beautiful Jingshan Park, where you can admire traditional Chinese temples and pavilions peeking behind the park's lush greeneries. Head toward the Forbidden City and ride alongside the moat as the imperial city looms in the background. Then, make your way to Tiananmen Square to see important structures like Tiananmen Tower, Chairman Mao’s Mausoleum and the Great Hall of the People. Enjoy this calm square at night and marvel at the city lights illuminating beyond.

Cycle over to Wangfujing Snack Street and enjoy the wonderful scents of street food vendors. Sample some local delicacies (own expense) to replenish yourself for your bike ride! Then, see past and present collide with a visit to Nanluoguxiang Alley, where modern boutiques, bars and restaurants stand on ancient streets beside traditional courtyard residences.

After enjoying the sights, smells, sounds and tastes of Beijing at night, your guide will lead you back to the original departure point.

Yesterday was our first day in Beijing & we have already seen so much. We did your Private Bike Tour at Night & our guide was Amy. Amy was absolutely amazing. She was fun, thoughtful & so knowledgable about all of the local sights & customs. Her English was perfect which was a huge relief, as we don't speak the local language at all. We saw lots of the major attractions as well as tiny little crowded lane ways with so much culture & history. We are extremely glad that we did this tour & would recommend it to any newcomers to China. We give Amy a 5 star rating! 10 out of 10 for sure!
