Not knowing how to speak the native language was a bit scary. So my partner and I decided to book a private tour guide. She was on time, spoke very good English and had lots to share about China’s history. When booking my excursion I informed the tour company I did not eat pork

Hi Dear Viator Customer, I am sorry to know that you had a bad experience with the dish selections our guide offered. First of all, we sincerely apologize to you. And we had informed every guide to be careful with customers' special requirements on food. Actually, for a lot of restaurants in Beijing, it is a common practice to put a little bit pork in some dishes to make the flavor better; even though it is not mentioned in the menu. Anyway, it is our fault and we will double check whether the dishes we order have something our customers are allergic to in the future. Thank you for the detailed review. Bruce Li from Wikibeijing
