    Our tour leader, Alan (Hongbin Lui) was outstanding.There is no way we could have seen so much in the time we had in China without a guide. He really added value and insight to the trip.

    Intrepid is possibly the best way to experience China, but China might not be for everyone. The spitting might put them off.
