Our recent trip through Burma was one of the highlights of my life. Our guides were excellent and met our needs with care.
When you picture China in your mind, you undoubtedly visualize the Great Wall of China, The Terracotta Warriors, great food and bustling cities. Of course, these are the most common projections of this immense country, but because of its size, China offers so much more than you can possibly imagine.
Our Essential China tour offers you an in-depth investigation into not just the places you know of already, but also so many you’ve yet to discover. We’ll take you to explore the two most spectacular cities in China to bookend your trip, Beijing and Shanghai, removing the hassle of the hustle of these metropolises with stress-free transfers and personal guided tours.
As well as touring the big cities, we’ll also take you to see the rural areas of China, blessed with natural beauty and a way of life that contrasts the hectic city life perfectly. You’ll visit two truly fascinating regions, Shaanxi and Guangxi and feel fully immersed in a culture and lifestyle you’ll never forget.
