Wow - this was a trip of a lifetime. Be prepared for early starts and a hectic pace albeit everything was so Amazing! It was our first trip to China and using Intrepid so going on such an adventure with our 13year old daughter was a bit daunting but we had the most fantastic trip leader - Evan - and made our journey a lifetime memory. Don't hestitate about booking - my advice is just to go for it and enjoy! The Historical sites were wonderful but we did lots of local activities such as Tai Chi, Bike Riding (superb),Visiting local market and cooking Chinese meal at cookery school,visiting Intrepid Foundation, walking in the local park and mingling with the locals, using so many different modes of transport including cable car, bullet train, sleeper train, ferry, tram, train - phew think the adrenaline kept us going! The meals also were great and our leader ensured that we tasted the specialities of the provinces which was wonderful. We feel most pivaleged that we had the opportunity to visit such a very special and inspiring country.

This tour is ideal for active families with teenagers who want to pack a lot into their time in China. Highlights for us were the Great Wall, the pandas, the Muslim quarter in Xi'an and cycling through Yangshuo's countryside. We were made to feel very welcome everywhere.
