  • See the heart of China and get under the skin of all of its highlights, made easy with the vast high-speed train network across the country. You’ll be flying!
  • Greet your host in a guesthouse near the Great Wall and join in on a dumpling making demonstration for dinner to get ready for your Great Wall hike the next morning.
  • Soak in the serenity and fresh mountain air in a temple stay in Mt Qingcheng and connect your mind, body and soul with a meditation session and tai chi class.
  • Immerse yourself in the local countryside in the Yangshuo region, exploring the riverbanks and karsts by bike, and stopping by a local home for a freshly prepared lunch.
  • Embrace the epicurean delights of China, from a leader-led tour of Xi’an’s Muslim quarter, full of authentic snacks, to the City of Gastronomy, Chengdu, for some local delicacies, including hotpot!

Is this trip right for you?
  • As this trip spends very little time in Beijing and Hong Kong, we recommend you spend arrive a few extra days before or after your trip if you want to experience all these cities have to offer.
  • Be prepared for some long travel days as we need to cover plenty of ground in order to see China's main highlights and include a good variety of experiences. On the other hand, the scenery is absolutely amazing, so sit back, relax and soak it up.

This is a fantastic tour to get to see the main highlights of China in a short amount of time. We learned loads of the history and got to try lots of local food and activities. Our guide was amazing, very informative and took great care of us. Will be recommending this to my friends/family.

The trip was amazing from start to finish and had a great range of activities from physical to cultural. Our tour leader Nancy was amazing and took such good care of us. If you are lucky enough to get Nancy ask her if she will sing for you. You won’t be disappointed! The Great Wall was spectacular as expected but an unexpected highlight for me was the cycle round the Xi’an city walls. We went just before sunset and it was spectacular. It’s an optional activity so don’t miss out!

It has been a pleasure to discover China! The itinerary works well as an introduction to the country and our group leader Nancy is such a wonderful human being. Make sure to add extra days before and after the trip, as both Beijing and HK have a lot to offer.
