► CHOOSE THE BEST CHINA HOLIDAYS FOR YOU
We offer a huge range of destinations in China including the popular must sees such as the Beijing’s Great Wall and Forbidden City, Xian’s Terra Cotta Warriors, the Giant Pandas of Chengdu and stunning scenery around Guilin and Yangshuo. To add to this we take pride in offering, and having visited ourselves, some of the more Off The Beaten Track destinations including stunning Tibet and Silk Road adventures. This gives you the opportunity to draw on the depth of our experience and choose the best China holiday for you.
You will see that many tour companies focus on join in group tours. That is something we do not do. We feel the most rewarding experience comes from private and tailor made travel. This allows us to offer a very personalised China holidays service and we find that results in superb clients feedback from where we gain our satisfaction.
► VISIT THE GREAT WALL & MORE IN OUR CHINA TOURS
It is rare that we put together China tours that do not include a tour to the Great Wall located in the beautiful mountains to the north of the city. Of course, everyone wants to visit the wall so we look to offering the right sections to avoid the worst of the tourist crowds. As a rule we prefer to visit the architecturally impressive Mutianyu section. For those looking for something a bit more rugged we offer trekking along the Jinshanling section that offers more of a wild wall experience. It is these little touches that make a good day trip to the Great Wall into a superb and memorable trip. That is the way we like to do things.
► FORBIDDEN CITY TOURS WITH MOST PACKAGES
Another world class tourist sight in China is the Forbidden City in the centre of Beijing. The Palace Museum, as it is known in China, was the imperial home to 24 emperors during the Qing and Ming dynasties from 1368 up to the Republic in 1911 when the Imperial system of rule collapsed. The vastness of the Forbidden City and high level of the architecure make it a must see sight.
Our tours aim to bring the life in Imperial Beijing to life. You will learn how and where the Emperor conducted the day to day business of running his Empire, see the family quarters and gardens and learn how social status was derived from the closeness you lived the huge red walls of the Forbidden City.
