For those looking for a true adventure across china we designed our China Grand tour. This is a truly epic journey stretching over 5 provinces in a 30 day period. China is Huge, Despite your expectations it will still be much larger than you can imagine. Journeys across a single province can take days, and all the way the views, cultures, dialects and food are constantly changing. Doing a long period of travel in china can seem a daunting task. So we composed our China Grand tour to allow you to relax and let us handle all the planning.
As with our other tours we have tried to mix a combination of not just classic tour opportunity’s and sights. But a mix of genuine cultural experiences and many secluded off the beaten track locations. We do visit some of the most famous sights (They became famous for good reason). And we don’t feel we should avoid certain places just because they are considered, by some, to be too ‘touristic’. But we like to balance these well known locations ,with a selection of our own more personally chosen experiences. Which we feel offer a real taste of genuine Chinese culture.
We have tried to keep travel time well divided with plenty of opportunity’s to rest and enjoy free time.
All our Long distance tours are guided by an excellent and experienced English speaking guide. With a deep knowledge and understanding of the various cultures and experiences you will discover. We understand that people often have specific places they wish to visit and all our tours are fully customization to suite your personal travel style and needs along the way.
