The organic ranking has saved us huge advertising expense, thus enabling our products more competitive.

With these advantages, we are able to offer the clients top quality 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 tours?
We are a reliable, highly respected and well-reputed China tour operator. We specialize in both escorted small group and private vacations.

Our small groups are best for those who are eager to see the most popular venues in China. 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 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 2 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 2016, 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 the scheduled departure?
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 in China 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 group trip. We can take care of everything for you if you need.

Some people may worry about being late for the group 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 have free Wi-Fi connections in the guestrooms and lobbies. However, if your trip 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 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. 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 internal airfares and world-class aircraft have made reliable choices.
Can I book my own hotel if I travel with your group?
Sorry, this is not going to work. Our itineraries are all-inclusive escorted packages. 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.
From which countries do many of your customers come from?
Our affordable small group tours have attracted participants from a wide range of nations, including US, UK, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, India, German, Brazil and many others. Among them, the US, UK, Australia and Canada travelers account for about 75% of the total.
What time does your group start and end every day?
The full day sightseeing activity 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.
