    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 2019 & 2020. 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 2018, 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 2019 and 2020 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.

      My wife and daughter and I recently completed the China Delight to Beijing, Xian, Guilin, Yangshuo and Shanghai from August 1st to 11st inclusive. I would like to take the opportunity to compliment this company on the superb tour and excellent organizational performance. Right from the first day when we were met at the Beijing airport by Candy and transported to our hotel we were very impressed by this company's attention to the finer details. All of the hotels were excellent, each of the domestic flights was excellent and the guides (Candy, Tracy, Annie and Tong) made us feel very important and secure. Our favorite guide was Annie (Lou Han) in Guilin who my wife and I got very close to emotionally. She is a really lovely, kind person who was more like a daughter to us than a guide and when I got sick with bronchitis during our Guilin part of the visit, she was very caring and concerned about my welfare. Perhaps the only criticism I would have is in regard to the a-la-carte restaurants that we attended for lunch each day. The guides tended to order for us which was a problem because each person had different tastes and needs and for the guides to be guessing what we may like and order on our behalf was not always successful. That would be the only issue that I feel needs to be addressed. Everything else went very smoothly and it was a very enjoyable vacation through some very interesting places in China. ... More

      Ian and I had never done a packaged before and had many concerns re our ability to enjoy being organized! The small group was a great mix of Australians, British and Americans, some younger and others older, couples and singles. All in all it was a fantastic trip and we saw most of what we had hoped to with minimum fuss and lots of solid support from our guides. We arrived home exhausted but feeling as though we had a better understanding of Chinese people and their values. 5 STARS!!

      We had a wonderful time and cannot praise highly enough our guides who were knowledgeable, friendly, professional and above all fun to be with. We learnt so much from them, not just history etc but also what it is really like for people to live in China today. The guide in Guilin also dealt fairly and tactfully with one rather outspoken and aggressive member of our party, who raised a legitimate concern but did so in an unpleasant way. Meals were all excellent, as were the shows. We also went on an extra trip in the evening on the river in Guilin, excellent and perhaps worth including as a standard trip as well as an acrobatic show in Shanghai was also excellent. As an extra you booked us a train trip to Suzhou and a room in the Mercure Hotel which was very good indeed. We would have no hesitation recommending your company to others. Your response time to all our email queries was excellent. Many thanks. ... More

      Everything on our 11 days China small group tour went well except for 2 delayed flights that were out of your control. Our only 2 criticisms are to do with the quality of the bus provided in Guilin (old, grubby and apparently with no springs) and the hotel in Xian which was not the best... hard beds and poor air con in our room also there was only one place to sit downstairs which was the bar area.

      I am just starting to get rested up after our visit to your country. We were able to spend time with friends as well as taking a vacation with your company. It was very enjoyable and your company does a great job. We will surely recommend you to friends who might be traveling.

      We would like add our comments about this website. All sightseeing spots were very respectable, rich of historical actuality. All excursions were very good organized. We were satisfied with all meals arranged for us. It was great experience to us try Chinese cuisine. Our favorite one is the Peking duck. We would like to say our big Thanks to all guides who served to us during all our trip. Good language, good knowing, good service, good respect. Especially our appreciation to guides Candy and Michael! Drivers' attitude was good. Cars were clean. All hotels with breakfast that they arranged to us were perfect! Food was fresh and delicious. We would like to express our gratefulness to shift who was working at July 26 in the hotel in Beijing. In that day my husband had Birth Day. When we got back into hotel in that day, we found in our room flower for my husband, cake and nice greeting-card with congratulations. It was very nice and memorable! Our entire experience with this company was fantastic. ... More

      1. Group size was perfect, even we were a group of eight with different ages, no one had bored, timing and spots were just perfect.
      2. Totally, for lunch, every day was a new experience that ended with smiles and satisfaction, we would recommend as the best meal the family lunch was excellent.
      3. All the team was great, Candy, Tom and (our guide in Xian we don't remember the name) were great, really patient with great English, they had a lot of knowledge. I will like to thank again to Candy through this company, she had the best detail with us, she bought a birthday cake for our family member that was very nice and thoughtful.
      4. Drivers, good attitude, very polite and cars were clean and comfortable.
      5. The hotels in Beijing and Shanghai were great, great service, great breakfast and very clean, the hotel in Xian could be improved. It wasn't very clean and the breakfast was average.
      6. I will like to thank Candy again for the thoughtful detail she had with my husband we really appreciated, we are so pleased with the whole trip, the guides, food, tourist arrangements, we will recommend this tour to everybody we know without hesitation, was such a great experience.

      We have just arrived back from an absolutely fantastic experience, one of the best we've had and we'd like to thank your company for making it a truly memorable one. Your arrangement goes the extra mile to make your clients feel welcome and provide us with facilities not found in other top tour companies. The information provided to us before we left home, with various website links, was very useful. Little touches like bottles of water everyday, the wine at the Great Wall and during the cruise and Abbey meeting us in Xi'an with the gift bags also make a big difference. The a la carte lunches were excellent, especially in Beijing and Xi'an. It gave us a great chance to enjoy authentic Chinese food. We also appreciate the trouble you took to arrange early check in and late check out for us in Shanghai. We shall have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending your company to all our friends. ...
