China Tours & Holidays

Welcome to China – one of the world's oldest and most enduring cultures; all yours to explore.

The Terracotta Warriors, Forbidden City, the giant panda and the flowing Yangzi – China is home to some of the world's most remarkable places. Venture deep into the cityscapes from Shanghai to Beijing. Float past Yangshuo's limestone karsts and explore the tranquil monasteries in Emei Shan and Lhasa. You will be struck by how diverse this land can be. Immerse yourself in the rich tapestries of history and the charm of local villagers. The diversity of culinary traditions and natural beauty combine to create an experience like nothing else. Come for the Great Wall and stay for the dim sum. This is China, loud and proud.

Premium China

Susan · Traveled August 2023
I would not recommend booking this trip within four weeks of the departure date if you are a US passport holder. Obtaining a visa to China is difficult with a tight time-frame. The itinerary is very interesting. I found the locals very friendly despite the language barrier and the food exceeded my expectations.

China Highlights

Jacob · Traveled August 2023
This tour was my first solo travel experience and I would love to come back. I never understood how beautiful China was until I experienced it first hand, I’ll never forget the culture, art and nature I saw. My tour guide Long Ma was a true professional but also felt like travelling with a good friend!

China Experience

Alan · Traveled July 2023
The intrepid tour of China was excellent and a big surprise on how much there is to see and do including all the major attractions such as the Great Wall, Forbidden City, Terracotta Warriors, Emei Mountain and cruise along the Yangtze River. The trip was well planned with the use of fast trains and our tour guide was amazing, I highly recommend to anyone thinking of travelling there to use Intrepid Tours, great work done by all.

China Experience

Serena · Traveled July 2023
China Experience is a whistle stop tour round the main sites of Central and Southern China. There is a good variety of places and activities. Quite a lot of travelling on some days, but necessary in order to fit a lot into 3 weeks.. My husband and I loved it and our guide Dragon Ma was very knowledgeable as well as supportive to everyone in the group. He became like a friend by the end...

A very comprehensive and sometimes intensive journey through the highlights of China. Not for the faint hearted or those with mobility issues.
