    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 China land tour?

    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 China land 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 2022 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.

      From the start to the finish, our 10 days private China tour ran very smoothly! The service of pick-up and drop-off at the airport was timely and punctual! All the drivers were MORE than skillful and all the vehicles were well equipped.

      We felt safe with these gentlemen. They were polite and helpful! Thank you so much! The guides did well in the team management and everything was in good order. Our group members were very nice and we shared a good time together. We were pleased to meet them in China! ... More

      We had a group of excellent tour guides! The guides Linda in Beijing left me a deep impression. She was earnest, responsible and qualified. Her explanations of the scenic spots were professional and we had a strong interest in her narrations. She always put our interests and demands on the first and tried to offer us high-quality service. She made our China tour was a big success. When we took the bus to the last attraction, she almost lost her voice and she kept introducing the meaning of the signs when passing by! So dedicated of her.

      The driver was warm-hearted and polite. He turned on the air-conditioning before we got on the bus and turned it off as the last one to get off. He kept the bus clean all the way. He really created a good environment for us. Thank you so much!

      All the hotels were in high quality except the one in Zhangjiajie. The hotel didn’t have a good location and we could hear the disembodied voices and the occasional blare of a car horn. They greatly bothered us and we couldn’t sleep well! General speaking, our 11 days China tour was relaxing!

      Our arrangements were fantastic and the guides were warm-hearted! When we had a trouble about the hotels, they could help us to settle it down as soon as possible.
      There was no forced shopping. But if we wanted to buy something, the guides were ready to give advice! All the scenic spots were explained in a detailed way and we enjoyed it a lot! Our family had a really good time during the China tour!

      I felt good about our 10 days private China tour! We visited the must-see attractions and we were glad to have a good time there.

      We took a walk along old Hutong to have a glimpse of the local people’s life. It was really a good way to know about the city. Many Chinese emperors had set their capital in Beijing and Beijing had a profound and extensive history and culture. I thought it was a place worth a visit!

      The guide Sara was nice, funny, humorous and enthusiastic. We shared a good time together. Thank you for support and company!

      The sceneries were good and we visited many must-see attractions. The itinerary was consistent with the introductions from the websites. There was no shopping! The guides were responsible and had good explanations. We found it was more relaxing to have a package tour than independent travel.
      We were pleased to have the 8 days China tour. But in order to miss the travel peak, we had to get up early. It really annoyed us! In general, our China tour was satisfying! Thank you so much!
