Our Essential China itineraries strip touring right back to its essential elements – magnificent sights and fantastic guiding! Your international flights are included, along with all your accommodation, some meals and the services of one of our fantastic local guides. During the day the showstopper sights, like the Great Wall and Terracotta Warriors, are included as part of your tour as well and you’ll get to visit them with your guide. In the evenings however, there are optional cultural experiences that you are able to add to your holiday - this way you can either choose to fill your time with exciting activities or use it for your own explorations!

So, our Essentials tours are not only excellent value for money, they allow you to create your perfect, once-in-a-lifetime China holiday!
