I just sent you an email for half day food tour.
Can we combine it with Hutong Rickshaw tour and Drum tower tour for the same day?
Administrator replaied:
Dear Jane Moon Thank you , we have replied you this morning, you can combine the Hutong rickshaw and Drum tower tour the same day as food tour, however they are at different locations, drum tower and rickshaws are at the tourists area, food tour at the local street, then this will make the tour last 6-8 hours ,if you think this works, then no problem to combine them together Regards Discover Beijing tours
