    Trip Planning FAQs

    What to see in China for first time travelers?
    China is a vast land with abundant tourism resources. For first time travelers, the top travel destinations of Beijing, Xian, Guilin, Shanghai and the Yangtze Cruise are recommended. As ancient capitals, both Beijing and Xian boast fantastic cultural and historic relics, such as the Great Wall, the Forbidden City and the Terracotta Warriors. Guilin is well known for its superb natural beauty, with Li River flowing through an amazing landscape resembling a scroll-painting. A relaxing cruise on the Yangtze River allows people to immerse themselves in the wonder of the natural surroundings. Shanghai, an international metropolis, best shows the country's pulsating modern development as well as its olden-day charms. In the light of the above, you can combine visits to these cities as you wish to create your China holiday tours.
    For a second time traveler, what are the recommended destinations?
    If you wish to go further on your second trip, you may consider visiting some regions with distinctive features. For panda lovers, Chengdu will satisfy your desire to observe these cute creatures in their natural habitat. In addition, it provides easy access to the magical Jiuzhaigou. Tibet is a good option for those who are interested in learning about Tibetan Buddhism and seeking out the mystery of this unique land. Cities in southwestern region like Kunming, Dali, Lijiang, Shangri-la, Guiyang, Kaili, and Zhaoxing are also popular for their rich ethnic minorities' folklore and customs. If you are curious about the Silk Road culture, you can visit Dunhuang, Turpan, Urumqi, Kashgar and more cities depending on your trip duration. For those who like mountain sceneries, Zhangjiajie and Mt. Huangshan are indeed visual delights. The above mentioned are only partial lists, our travel consultants are ready here to customize a private China tour package to meet your needs.
    How many days are needed for a trip to China?
    It mainly depends on the destinations of your trip. For a single city vacation package, three to four days are required. If you want to visit two to three cities, basically one week is needed. A 12-day to two weeks China vacation package usually would cover four to five cities. Once you decide on your destinations, we can help you work out a realistic duration.
    What is the best time to travel to China?
    China is a vast country with wide-ranging climatic conditions, so a decision about the best time to visit should be based on the regions you plan to visit and the kind of weather you enjoy. Generally speaking, late March to May in spring, September and October in autumn are the best months to visit most of the cities. Try to avoid travelling during the National Day Holiday from Oct 1st to Oct 7th as all sightseeing spots are very crowded. For visitors who want to save money and enjoy sightseeing without interference by tourist crowds, you can plan your private China tours in the winter season from December to February.
    How much would a trip to China cost?
    The prices will range widely depending on the destinations, durations and your demands for comfort. Let's take one of the most popular itineraries as an example, 8 days Beijing, Xian and Shanghai. It will cost about USD1400 per person on the basis of a private guided tour for two people with 4-star accommodation and domestic flights in between. If you join in a small group tour with the similar itinerary, the trip usually costs about USD999 per person. For travelers who start your 2019/2020 China tours from USA, Canada, UK, Australia, Germany, Spain, France, etc, international flights are not included. 

    Many travelers also take the high speed trains instead of flights to save the cost and enhance the travel experience, which has been proved to be an awesome choice. No matter how much you want to spend on a trip, as the best China tour company we are always happy to tailor make a private tour itinerary that best fits your needs. In addition, our early bird discount can also help you save more.

      I would write that TravelChinaGuide people is the first contact that you need to do if you are going to visit China. Every detail regarding your time in China is attended and you only need to enjoy your vacation in such a wonderful country. I have recommended their services to all my fellows and so far all of them have received an outstanding service. We would pay a compliment to Candy in Beijing and Celine in Xian, Both of them are very kind and supportive.

      We were extremely well satisfied with all the arrangements. The key to our being so satisfied was that the guide that we had was extremely knowledgeable, responsive and pleasant. In particular, the trip to Dazu was memorable. We spent long hours going over virtually every statue and she was able to share much information with us. Her English was outstanding as well. The car and driver were fine. The car was comfortable and the driver courteous throughout the trip. The hotel was excellent, and the meals were more than adequate. Thanks for helping us have a wonderful trip. ... More

      I would like to extend a special thank you to our Beijing Guide, Candy. She is an amazing young lady. I suppose, because we had a significant amount of days with Candy, it is understandable that a friendship was formed between her and all members of our family. She gives 110% to her job and made us feel very special. We were sad to say goodbye. Thank you, Candy!

      I am in Saudi Arabia, so happy with my recent wonderful vacations and thanks for all your services and support in our time in China.

      I liked a lot the a la carte meal. In Beijing we enjoyed the roast duck and the food in the restaurant after visiting Tianamen Square and the Forbidden City. The Chinese restaurant in the hotel and its breakfast were excellent. I did not like the restaurant in Datong. The restaurant served a lot of food but my wife and I did not like neither the food nor the service. In Xian, the a la carta restaurant was outstanding, delicious food and good service. The lunch that we had with the Chinese Lady in Xian was memorable and delicious. My wife had such a good time cooking the dumplings and they eating them. I would recommend the Beijing Duck as the most memorable one.

      Kitty, Carol and Pemba did an excellent job as tourist guide. Good knowledge of the sites and cities, willing to help and punctual. They explained very well and enough to do not bother us with so much information. All of them have a good English. In my opinion all drivers did a good job and the cars were clean and in good conditions.

      My wife and I appreciated the selection of all the hotels. All of them were in good location and breakfast was outstanding with so many selections.

      Thanks again for a wonderful China vacation!

      I have been wanting to write and thank you for a wonderful holiday. Thanks to your fantastic organization and our guides and drivers, our holiday, a major undertaking with 2 babies, was one of a lifetime that went so smoothly with minimal stress. Thank you so much. We all have memories to last a lifetime. Taj, our 3 year old, keeps telling everyone that his favorite activities on our holiday were walking the city wall in Pingyao, Pingyao and visiting the pandas.

      We were very pleased with our custom tours. The drivers and guides were wonderful. The vehicles were nice and clean, with water provided everyday. The guides gave us much information and also allowed us time to do what we wanted (I wanted to look in a few shops, we took a boat ride, stopped for tea, changed our drop off one day so we could see more of the city before going back to the hotel...). While China has many signs in English, the trip would not have been possible for us without their help. We did not have to worry about anything. We traveled with two small children - 4 & 8 years old, and they loved the trip. ... More

      1) We had three guides, (Kunming, Dali and Lijiang) and all were conscientious and eager to ensure we had an interesting and great time.
      2) All guides had good English and we had no problems of communication.
      3) All guides had very good local knowledge and explained well the various features of the tour, particularly interesting to us was the extensive information concerning the various Minority Nationalities and their lives and traditions.

      Meals. We found the meals included with the tour to be excellent in all cases. Food was particularly fresh, quality was high and there was plenty of it provided, possibly too much!

      Cars. The service attitude of the drivers was very good, they were always pleasant and helpful. I am pleased to say that the cars were driven safely at all times and were kept clean throughout.

      TravelChinaGuide is a great company to work with in planning a trip of China. The email traffic between TCG and me was always prompt and well written. If anything was ambiguous - it was easily explained in a follow-up email! It may be true that we could have tried to do much of the touring on our own - but with the short amount of time available the services of TCG allowed us to make very good use of our limited time. The people in the central office and the guides were very professional. The guides also provided a connection to the local people - this is hard to do if you arrange all the trip yourself or try to rely on day tours from hotels. Also, on our plane trip from Xian to Beijing we were diverted to Taiyuan because of bad weather. The people at TCG and the guides themselves kept in good contact with us. In the end, we were picked up by the guide and driver at 4AM at Beijing Airport. Well - that is great service. So, unless you are an expert world traveler I suggest you use a guide - if you do - TravelChinaGuide could be a good choice - it was for us! ... More
