Great tour with lots of interesting...

Great tour with lots of interesting food. Had a great time walking in Beijing, being with locals and having authentic food. I would advise thinking long and hard before selecting the bizarre food option. We did the regular option and some of the food was fairly unusual by Western standards. I love food and am not a picky eater but there were some things on the tour that I only tasted a little of and can frankly say I hope not to have again. That said, there was lots of variety and so much food that you will leave full and satisfied even if you are a less adventurous eater.
