    Lama Temple (Yonghegong)
    Stop: 4 hours
    You will meet your guide and tuktuks at an easy-to-find central location near Beijing's Lama Temple and then wind your way through the narrow streets and alleys of Beijing's hutongs. We only try the best local food in the city at places where only locals go that are truly off the beaten path. You won't see any other tourists, these are family-run restaurants that you can't find on your own. Between food stops, you'll be able to chat with your English-speaking guide about the city while drinking unlimited local beer. While visiting our 4-5 food stops, you will get to learn about the families that have been making their specialties for generations. You'll learn how it's made and what makes it so special to Beijing locals. You will grill your own meat at a local BBQ joint, eat the best hand-made noodles in Beijing, and wrap delicious dishes in freshly made Beijing pancakes, plus more! The tour will finish at a local brewery with a pint of Beijing craft beer.

Cold beer, tuk tuks, racing around brightly lit and sometimes dark alleyways eating authentic local dishes. Ruiya was an amazing host and always made sure there was a beer and something delicious to eat close by! A must do in Beijing.
