We recommend the Beijing Company called Hutong Tour. They can be found on Tripadvisor. They offer different Hutong Tour variations. We recommend choosing the one which offers a Hutong Tour with Tea Tasting and Encounter with the Cricket Man! You can read our review about the Tour we took and see photographs as well on Hutong Tour’s TripAdvisor page. Our guides Storm Li and Sunny were great. You can request for them.
