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.

    Great organization, great china tour. We really enjoyed our holiday and thanks for your efforts. Meals served were all ok, the Peking Duck was the best, Forbidden Palace Garden second best. Car and driver were terrific. Working attitudes of the guides Lily were very conscientious, Her English was fine, we can easily understand that. Her knowledge about the historical sights was beyond our expectation. She was great and the entire process through your agency was great. I would recommend the tour to my friends. Thanks and regards! ... More

    It was great working with Travel China Guide. I always got a prompt clear response to my questions. This was key as we were tailor making our tour to our dates and requests. All input was clear and concise.

    the guides were all excellent and I would be happy to use again.

    I was never pressured to finalise payment, I was never bombarded with promos and never taken to gift shops unless I wanted to go. All very professional.

    I will use again in the future.

    Too much work after returning from my trip to China! I had a wonderful time during the trip, I was very satisfied with the service provided all along the way, thanks to the service of TCG company and my China experience was very complete and fulfiled all my expectations. I hope I can use Travel China Guide service again in a not so remote future, I also would like to express my appreciation to my four guides, all of them very good and competent.

    I was very impressed with the trip arrangements! After booking the trip the agent got in touch by email to confirm the hotel address for pick up, and a contact number. Because my hotel was down a narrow alleyway, I gave the address of a nearby hotel on a main road.
    The evening before the tour the guide telephoned me to give the time of pick up. It was an early start of 6.30 and a minibus turned up on time, this went round some local hotels and dropped us at a coach which took us the rest of the way.
    We arrived at Mutianyu Great Wall quite early, the guide explained where things were by standing in front of the map and then took us to the ticket windows for transport to the top, there's a choice of cable car or chair lift to get to the top, I chose the chair lift which meant I was able to ride the tuboggan back down, which was great fun! There was adequate time to walk the stretch of wall.
    We all met up at a restaurant next to where the coach parked, the food was excellent, we were in tables of 7 or 8 and there were probably as many different dishes to try! The coach dropped off at the olympic park, the outer metro circle line and the inner metro circle line.
    I would very much like to do it again and I would book it the same way! The tour guide, Nancy, was extremely friendly and helpful!

    Kelly has been very helpful. She has answered all my questions in a timely manner. She has made recommendations on various items. She was able to change our itinerary as requested. I am very satisfied with the service she has provided.

    My husband and I really enjoyed our visit and we were very impressed with this travel company. Thanks for putting together such a wonderful vacation for us.

    The meals were great. I was most nervous about the home visit and that turned out to be my favorite. My husband really enjoyed the Peking Duck meal. I would say the "Hot Pot" meal in Xian was the most entertaining because you got to cook your own food.

    All the guides English was great. We had a few translation issues with Judy in Beijing, but it wasn't anything that would make us not understand the history. Carol in Xian was WONDERFUL. She had perfect English, knew everything about the history of China, and just made our trip. She was nice and very friendly. All of the guides were great, we just had the most fun with her. We were extremely impressed with ALL the drivers and their cleanliness in their cars. It was very comfortable.

    I would say that if you are going to travel to China, I would HIGHLY recommend this company because of the attention to details, the willingness to do anything to make your trip special and the fact that all the restaurants that were recommended met every dietary need. On my next trip to China I will use Travel China Guide 100%!

    The company provided excellent value for the money. They allowed us to be a two-person group, without dozens of others we didn't know. They met every flight in every city, and despite traffic, they were never late for any event. They have knowledgeable local guides who speak good English. They arranged meals at good restaurants, and excellent shows in the evenings. We will certainly use this company the next time we come to China!

    We have just arrived back in Australia today. Firstly, I would like to say we had a fantastic time with TCG and would not hesitate in recommending their packages to our friends and family. Being the first time we have booked an organized trip via the internet, I must admit that I was a little apprehensive and not sure what it would be like but it was fantastic.

    We had no complaints from the first day we were picked up from the airport. John our guide in Beijing was fantastic. He was very knowledgeable, friendly and a pleasure to be with. Our driver was also fantastic, he drove safely and we felt comfortable with his driving.

    Our hotels in both cities Beijing and Xian were clean and comfortable and breakfast was very good.

    The service and food selection in all the restaurants throughout the tour trip were excellent and the organized shows were very good. The restaurant we liked the most was the Beijing duck dinner restaurant.

    Our guides John in Beijing and Julia in Xian were fantastic. Their knowledge was outstanding and they explained everything in detail. Their English was good and we had no problem understanding them. They were fun to be with and took good care of our needs and requests. The cars were great, clean and comfortable.

    We were extremely pleased with the tours we did and would not hesitate in booking another tour with TravelChinaGuide in the future.
