Want to go to China, but don’t know where to start? This tour is the one for you. Covering six incredible destinations, the Classic China Tour offers everything from mountain getaways to a ride on the fastest train in the world!

As soon as you arrive in the capital, Beijing, you will be thrown into the unique culture of the city. You’ll jaunt around the local neighborhoods in a rickshaw, witness astonishing acrobatic performances, and feast on exceptional, authentic Chinese cuisine.

Before you leave Beijing, you can choose to attend any of these Chinese cultural activities and we will gladly accompany you: a tai-chi class, a massage, a Peking Opera face painting class, a cooking class, or a tea ceremony.

In Xi’an, you will finally find out what the big fuss is about, after seeing Emperor Qin Shihuang’s Terracotta Warriors for yourself. You can take a bike ride around Xi’an’s celebrated city walls, and imagine what the ancient capital would have looked like 600 years ago, when the walls first went up.

Guilin is famous for its stunning scenery, which you will take in from the comfort of the Li River cruise. But Guilin’s breathtaking landscape is only the first example of natural phenomena that you will witness. You’ll also get to know the real Yangshuo County, by exploring caves full of crystals and river rafting.

The final leg of your tour will take you to the futuristic city of Shanghai. After your escape to nature, the city’s famous waterfront may look like something from science fiction movie; but Shanghai is also home to peaceful traditional gardens, Buddhist temples, and the quaint French Concession.

As always, we can customize your tour to suit to your individual preferences, simply ask your agent!
