China Tours

An exciting 23-day tour visiting many of China’s most iconic wonders

With thousands of years of history and a fascinating, vibrant culture, it’s easy to see why China remains one of the world’s favourite travel destinations. Alongside the intriguing history seen in the many ancient cities and archaeological discoveries, there is so much more to fall in love with in China, from the delicious cuisine to the diverse landscapes, friendly locals, peaceful gardens, cultural customs and rare Giant Pandas.

Our 23-day Very Best of China tour gives you the chance to see some of this amazing country’s top highlights at a leisurely pace, with a mix of unforgettable journeys, sightseeing tours and Freedom Days, where you can enjoy time as you wish. During the tour, you’ll visit some of the country’s best-known attractions and cities, such as Beijing, Shanghai, the Terracotta Warriors and the Great Wall of China. We will also show you some of China’s lesser-known spots and hidden gems, such as Pingyao, the country’s best-preserved walled city. The tour also offers some of the world’s most incredible journeys in the form of a three-night cruise along the Yangtze River and a cross-country bullet train ride from Pingyao to Xi’an.

Along the way, you’ll be guided by your expert Tour Manager, who is there to ensure you get the very best from your holiday.

With quality accommodation, breakfast, transport and many meals also all taken care of for you, our Very Best of China tour offers exceptional value for money as well as an adventure that you will never forget.
