What a waste of time, really not sure what we paid for with this tour. The guide picked us up from hotel took us to Hutong and passed us over to another guide and driver who took us thru Huntong area we then had to pay the guide and the driver. The Hutong guide was excellent but I dont know why we were not told that we would have a 2nd guide and driver that we had to pay as well. We then had to go to tea ceremony,Lunch was terrible as usual on these tours. We then went to the Olympic park where we got to walk around the stadium we asked about going in but were told we would have to but tickets which we did and went in alone. This tour is a joke, as I

Beijing's Hutong neighborhood of small alleys is too small for a tour bus, and, really, too small even for automobiles; rickshaw is the ideal mode of transportation. The opportunity to visit a real home in this neighborhood is extraordinary. It turns out that the Olympic Aquatic Center "Water Cube" provides public swimming sessions, either in a family-style water park, or for lap swimmers in the "warm-up" pool; had I been prepared, I would have left the tour at the end for a swim!
