We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

Beijing Bike Tours
Bicycling is one of the best ways to visit Beijing. It is a safe, healty, convenient, economical and environmentally friendly means of travel and transportation.

In China, it is also a kind of life style for the people. Due to the unique bicycle culture, China is nicknamed the "Bicycle Kingdom". Beijing is undeniablly the king of the bike kingdom best manifested by the top song singed by Katie Melua titled "Nine Million Bicycles in Beijing". The song also tells the westerners feeling about the bikes in Beijing.

The bikes to Chinese people are what the cars to the westerners. They are more than means of transportations, they are a way of life, a kind of Chinese culture and people's friends. People at all ages love bikes in China. Cyclists are therefore given high priority in the traffic.

In Beijing you will find many bicycle paths. It is said that Pu Yi, the Last Emperor of the Qing Dynasty loved bicycles so much that he went so far as to order his servants to saw off the thresholds of the gates to make it more convenient for him to ride his bicycle. Do you have the fancy idea of riding a nice bike shoulder to shoulder with the locals to see the imperial city, and explore the Hutongs?
