We don't usually do tours, but wanted a guided experience into the richness of China. The small size of cohort allowed us to bond as a group and experience more together, such as more food options.
       
A well-organized, fun trip. Good hotels, good scheduling, many included sightseeing experiences.
       
A whirlwind tour of all the top sights but expertly and efficiently guided by the group leader so that we never felt anxious or hurried. The hotels were not luxurious but comfortable. I particularly enjoyed travelling on the public buses and eating in local restaurants to get a feel for the real China.
       
This was an exhilarating trip full of adventure that takes you to some of the most famous places and sites in China. The food was excellent throughout and plenty of it.
       
Great trip to some iconic places in China. The pace is full on particularly if you partake in the extras offered , be prepared to walk a lot around the cities countryside and parks .We enjoyed all the different forms of transport including riding a tandem ! We learnt a lot about China , food was good and very reasonably priced
