Beijing by Foot leads historical walking tours and educational programs exploring the famous sites and hidden byways of Beijing. We are seekers, travelers, and historical enthusiasts on a search for Old Peking.

Just a quick note on availability: We still have spots left for many of our public walks and events scheduled for November, but due to high demand and a large number of early bookings we have very limited availability for private walks through the middle of this month. We apologize in advance if you are unable to book a private walk for a specific date.

Contact us if you have any questions or if you'd like to check on a particular day. We'd love to hear from you!


Public walks and events

Each week we hold public walks and discussions in partnership with The Hutong. Led by a native English-speaking guide with over 15 years of research and teaching experience in China. No flags. No funny hats. Just small groups having a conversation as we wander in search of Old Peking. 

Private Walks and Tours

Coming to Beijing? Live here already and want to do a deep dive into the city's history and culture? Looking for a fun educational adventure for your school, company outing, or organization? We arrange private walks and tours of Beijing's most famous sites and hidden corners for individuals and groups. 

Workshops and Programs 

We provide interactive workshops, fun and informative lectures, and talks on history and culture for companies, schools and groups. We have over 10 years of experience producing high quality programs on history and culture in China, cross-cultural communication, and cultural adaptation.
