A city of scholars

Hutong landscape

This tour will guide you through the atmospheric hutongs of the capital whilst exploring its literary past. Beginning at Dengshikou and ending with Jingshan hill’s majestic views of the imperial palace, we will make our way to the former residence of Lao She, an icon of the city and Beijing’s most beloved author.

A stroll along the green Beiheyan Street will take us to the Red Building, the original site of the prestigious Peking University, where at the beginning of the 20th century, intellectuals embraced modern science and literature and started the New Culture Movement.

This small-group tour (3 to 10 persons) is offered at the price of 300RMB per person, which includes admission to the sites and is paid at the end of our itinerary. We welcome your feedback on our tours and hope to provide a very positive and interactive experience.

Reservations can be made online through our website or by emailing us at info@beijingbyheart.com. Please contact us if you need more detailed information about how to find our meeting point or for any other request.
