FAQs on China Family Tours

What kind of activities might children enjoy in China?

China is rich in tourism resources. In addition to the highlight scenic spots, each city has its own special activities. For families with children, a combination of both will make your trip more enjoyable. Taking a luge down from the Great Wall, watching a fantastic Kung Fu show, painting Beijing Opera facial masks, learning to make dumplings in a local family, making their own terracotta warriors, riding bicycles through villages and the beautiful countryside, getting close to the incredibly cute treasure - pandas, and more, these are not only popular with children, but also with adults. Depending on the age of your children or the members in your family group, our professional travel consultant will tailor a trip to suit you best.

Is it hard to climb the Great Wall? Which section is more suitable for the elderly and children?

We recommend Mutianyu Great Wall for families. You can take a cable car up to the wall. The children may like a toboggan (slide) ride down. The hike will be at a moderate pace lasting about 2 hours or more based on your interests.

What is the best time for our family to visit China?

The best times are April, May, September and October, when the weather is the nicest. But honestly speaking, there is no absolute perfect time of the year. There are more tourists in the high season and unpleasant weather in the low season. If you travel with infants or toddlers, choosing a time with pleasant climate would be more important. However for teenagers, just go when you can and make enough preparations. China is waiting for you all year around.

Are the guides experienced in family tour with children or seniors?

Sure. We will arrange family oriented tour guides for you. They are friendly and patient, they love children and are always sensitive to the needs of your family. They know how to take care of the elderly, and how to interact with the children to keep them active. Whatever you need, just talk to the guide at any time.

Will we have a chance to visit a local family?

Yes. Family visit can be arranged in many cities. It’s a good way to get close to the local people and learn about their lifestyles. If you like, you are more than welcome to join them for lunch, taste the home-cooked dishes and learn how to cook with the hosts. Dumpling-making is very popular and loved by children, if you have time you should have a try. It will be a fun and bonding experience for your entire family.

If we travel with the children, can we have a family room?

We generally arrange international brand hotels with guaranteed facilities and services, which usually have no family rooms but a few interconnecting rooms. If one standard room can accommodate the families, that will be fine, otherwise, we will arrange interconnecting rooms, and if they are not available when we book, we will arrange adjacent rooms instead. If you are concerned about family rooms, we can recommend apartment hotels for you, or leave the hotels on your own.

Are the activities involved in your tours safe for kids?

We choose kids-friendly activities. There are no adventurous elements in our tours. There would be some walking involved but usually no more than 2 hours. You can just talk with your guide anytime your kids need a rest. But of course, do not let your kids go out alone, keep them close by at all times.

What will be the longest driving time on our trip? Are all vehicles equipped with seat belts?

We keep the time spent on driving to a minimum for a leisure family holiday. Generally, the longest land transfer will be around 1.5 hours to 2 hours in our itineraries. And yes, there will be seat belt equipped in our vehicles.

Are there any special local customs that we should follow?

For travelling to the cities included in our tours, there are no special conventions other than the basic social etiquette. If you have any questions, just follow advice from your local guides.

The best time to visit Beijing is in April, May, September and October when the weather is neither too hot nor too cold. Traveling in Dember is a bit challenging as the weather is cold at that time with an average temperature of -2°C/28°F.

However, it is also the off season with not too much tourists and you may have chance to see the snow-covered Great Wall and Forbidden City, which is unique and beautiful. You are suggested to wear heavy clothes to keep warm such as woolen sweater, down coat, warm gloves, scarf, hat, etc.

Hi, according to my experience, at least two days are needed to cover the highlights of Beijing. For Xi'an, I think two days are enough, one day to visit Terracotta Warriors and take a city trip on the other day. In Guilin, you can experience the Li River cruise to Yangshuo and spend the second day exploring the sightseeing attrations in the city like Reed Flute Cave and Elephant Trunk Hill. One day is ok to cover the main attractions in Shanghai, but if you would like to visit a water town, two days are required. As for Hong Kong, one day is enough to explore the Hong Kong Island only, if you also want to visit other places, like Disneyland or Ocean Park, then another two or more days are needed.

In winter most areas in China become cold and dry. It may snow in the cities in the northern area. Where will your family visit in Dec? Actually the weather does not affect the outdoor activities much. You can still climb the Great Wall even during snowing.
