    FAQs on Small Groups

    Why your prices are quite lower than other China tour operators?

    Here are some facts that we offer excellent services in China small group tours while maintaining lower prices.

    First and foremost, our website has long been in the top three hits on major search engines like Google since we offer comprehensive and useful content, as well as accurate and up-to-date travel information. The organic ranking has saved us huge advertising expense, thus enabling our products more competitive.

    Secondly, we are offering tours directly to clients, not through the third party who builds the price up by 20% higher as customary. In this case, we can avoid the middle-man charge.

    Thirdly, we have been in travel E-business for 20 years, due to the increasing number of travelers with us each year, we have set up good and long-term cooperation with the hotels, airlines and many other direct suppliers, so we could always get the best price.

    With these advantages, we are able to offer the clients top quality China tours with the most favorable prices, and that's exactly what we do right now.

    Do I need a visa to China?

    A visa is needed by most visitors to China (excluding visits to Hong Kong). These are easy to obtain from the local Chinese embassy or consulate in your countries or regions. Usually visitors should apply for tourist visas (L). As your travel agency we are pleased to offer a free invitation letter to help you obtain your visa. The visa application process usually takes 5 to 7 working days. For detailed information about a visa, please consult your local Chinese embassy or consulate.

    What are the main differences between small group and private travel?

    We are a reliable, highly respected and well-reputed China tour operator. We specialize in both escorted group tours and private vacations.

    Our small group China tours are best for those who are eager to see the most popular venues in China. There is a wide choice of discounted itineraries with fixed departure dates in our comprehensive group tour list giving the best deals for the years of 2020 & 2021. We make every effort to make you feel like part of a friendly family and get the utmost enjoyment from your trip. Meeting like-minded people is exciting, but making lifelong friends is a great bonus of group travel.

    A private trip is run exclusively for you, your family with seniors or children, or friends and no other people. You may choose an ideal pre-made private itinerary on our website, or we can customize one in line with your specific wishes. All arrangements are flexible to fit your travel style.

    How many people will there be on a small group?

    Unlike those agencies catering for groups of 25 to 30 clients, our group size is 1 to 18 people. It is our belief these smaller groups ensure that members get maximum enjoyment from their trip and have a more meaningful interaction with the guide. In 2019, our average group size was 14 people.

    What is the average age of people on your group?

    According to our statistics in recent years, the average age of our group travelers is estimated at 45. 60% of our customers are middle-aged and senior people, and 40% are young people. You will never be disappointed with the chat with people at your age, or make some cross-age friends.

    What if I arrive early or late for a small group tour?

    No matter how early or late you arrive, we will arrange your airport pick-up without delay. The only thing you need to do is to give us advance notice of your arrival time.

    If you arrive a few days earlier than our scheduled group package, we can book the extra night hotel accommodation and customize private activities for you before joining the group. Likewise, you can also extend your vacation to any of your interested destination after the end of whole escorted group package. We can take care of everything for you if you need.

    Some people may worry about being late for the trip due to an international flight delay or change. In such circumstances, please keep us informed with the updated flight schedule. We will make all necessary alternative arrangements. Rest assured that, whatever happens, our aim is to give visitors a trouble-free holiday experience.

    Is Wi-Fi available in the hotels?

    Yes, all the hotels we use for 2020 and 2021 group tours have free Wi-Fi connections in the guestrooms and lobbies. However, if your China group tours covers a Yangtze River Cruise, the cruise company usually charges extra fees for using Wi-Fi onboard.

    Can I bring my children and how do you charge for my children?

    Sure, children are always welcome to join our top quality China group tours. We quote prices for children according to their age. A child under 12 years old can enjoy great discount on the adult fare on the land service charge and domestic airfares. Travelers aged 12 and over will be charged as adults.

    For infants under 2 years old, we only charge the necessary infant airfares during the guided China tour. But if your trip includes a Yangtze River cruise, you need to pay an extra percentage of the cruise fee for the baby according to the cruise company's policy.

    What airlines do you use during the trip?

    In the main, we book internal air tickets from the four largest Chinese airlines including Air China, Southern Airlines, Eastern Airlines and Hainan Airlines, all which have good safety records. Their service quality, competitive airfares and world-class aircraft have made them reliable choices.

    Can I book my own hotel if I travel with your group?

    Sorry, this is not going to work. Our small groups are all-inclusive escorted China tours. There will be an experienced English-speaking guide and an experienced driver in each city to serve the whole group, so all group members need to stay in the same hotel to maximize the use of sightseeing time and also benefit from the hotel group room rate.

    What time does your group start and end every day?

    The full day sightseeing visit usually starts at around 08:30 and ends at about 18:00, timing may change slightly according to the season. For days with evening shows included, we may finish the day at around 21:00.

      The guide’s service was very good, providing detailed explanations and caring for every traveler with a thoughtful attitude. It was nice that there were only 6 travelers in our China small group and every member was punctual & polite.

      The Beijing trip with TravelChinaGuide was fantastic from start to finish. The guide was excellent and careful. She knew a great deal of knowledge about scenic spots as well as culture and life in Beijing. A lesson everywhere! Wonderful!!

      TravelChinaGuide had a reasonable arrangement of our 14 days China small group tour. Cooking in a Xi’an local family was really a special experience. The head office of TravelChinaGuide was located in Xi’an. I was very happy to meet my tourism consultant Abbey. She had quite excellent spoken English. We had pleasant lunch time.

      This group China tour was reasonably organized by TCG - a very creditworthy company. We had a great trip to Yunnan with them last year. So we did not hesitate to order this best China tour in January. It was a good experience, but it wasn’t as excellent as last time. Perhaps we spent more time during meals and transfers. We would have preferred more sightseeing time. But all the guides were enthusiastic and experienced. The hotels were quite opulent and comfortable, very satisfying!

      Our travel consultant Vera was extremely prompt in her response and helpful in providing us with detailed description and practical advice. Sincere thanks to Ms. Vera.
      Our China small group tour was full of joy and six of us (including guide) got along very well. My friend and I did look forward to an exciting trip and TCG made it done perfectly!

      I traveled with my friends to China for 9 days through Travel China Guide and we indeed enjoyed ourselves with those experienced & humorous guides! The sightseeing time at each site was just right and we were left enough time to explore freely. The guide in Suzhou was wonderful, quite accommodating and concerned about our safety. He also gave us brief but focused explanations of the Yu Garden and Shanghai Museum. We really had a great time in general. I have already recommended the 9 days China small group tour to several of my colleagues and thank you for making our experience in China an unforgettable one! ... More

      Our guides were experienced, and we had a pleasant time in our 8 days China small group tour. The hotel room of Xi’an booked in advance was a little small. Our guide and the hotel staff negotiated to change a bigger and more comfortable room for us in time. Good services!

      I am very satisfied with this 2-week China small group tour. My family had a good time in Beijing, Chengdu and Yangtze River Cruise. Our guide Tina in Beijing is the most enthusiastic one, also very attentive and polite. Tour guides in other cities are also very professional, greatly enriching our travel experience in China. Every pick-up and send-off arranged by TCG is on time and satisfactory!

      The guide was a very important reason that we could enjoy our trip! Our guides were all good and knowledgeable about their areas. They all gave us much information and answered any of our questions professionally! They organized everything well and we just had fun and enjoyed our trip! The harmonious team atmosphere was especially good! We were also recommended tasty local food and excellent shows. I loved the food and shows very much! What annoyed me was that I had no time for shopping. I would like to suggest that if at all possible, perhaps there could be a little time for shopping? In short, our China tour was satisfying! ...

      The 11 days China small group tour was pleasant on the whole. The tour guides were professional and straightforward. The hotels we stayed in were all comfortable and clean. The meals of Xi’an and Beijing were more to my taste. In general, everything was good.
