We had a super family holiday in China with a group of sixteen people and our excellent guide Peter. The group was mixed; Americans, Australians, British and myself a Dutch national, who lives in London. We were extremely lucky in that there were three other teenage boys for my son to hang out with and even though I am single, this never made me feel an outsider as everybody was very easygoing and talkative. The itinerary was varied and although China in summer is not for the fainthearted due to the heat and the enormous number of Chinese tourists, we had a wonderful time. Holiday of a lifetime with culture, nature, shows and fun activities such as our excellent cooking class and Kung Fu lesson. I would recommend the trip wholeheartedly, although you might want to go in spring or autumn ;-)

I would totally recommend the Intrepid China trip for families. It was a beautiful experience that our family will treasure always. There was something special for everyone, children and adults. It is always great value when you feel your child has had an equally great experience.
