    Good value for money and the guide was on point. Would definitely use them again as an option for budget travel. China would likely have been difficult and beat and undoable without a tour (and I am a fairly a seasoned traveler)

    The best things about this trip was our CEO, Jennifer. She was knowledgeable, helpful and gave a lot of great suggestions about foods to try, what we could do in our free time, etc. The accommodations and food were good for the price. The amount of... Show more

    I thought that doing a tour would avoid busy times for sightseeing however it was the opposite. There was too many times you had to provide your own meals and it was long days. I would have done it on my own in hindsight. The tour guide was lovely and... Show more

    Sorry we can’t remember our tour guides actual name but his nickname was Gary and he was great. Best guide and such a fab tour!

    YES! Thanks Hayley. Don't worry about not remembering his actual name....My ability to remember why I walked into the kitchen is far outweighed by my ability to recall 80's song lyrics perfectly :)

    For a very affordable price, this tour is excellent. We were given an excellent selection of meals, great accommodation, and had the opportunity to travel like locals in sleeper trains. I would highly recommend this trip!

Frequently Asked Questions

    • Is there a hotel list available?

      All accommodations are subject to change until 4-6 weeks before the departure date, and your specific accommodation details will be listed in your final trip documents. This is a list of accommodations that the operator will typically use on this tour, but please be advised that they are subject to change:

      Sicily Hotel, Beijing Tiantan East Gate
      7 Sages Bell Tower Youth Hostel
      Phoenix Hostel

      This tour also includes 1 night on a basic overnight sleeper train. Hopefully, this list will give you a better idea of what kind of accommodation you can expect while on tour.

    • When and where does the tour end?

      The tour concludes on Day 8, in China's modern metropolis, Shanghai. After a final breakfast with the group you are free to depart at any time, or take the day to explore the city and tick off some of the suggested optional activities!

    • When and where does the tour start?

      Day 1 of the tour is an arrivals day, so you can arrive in Beijing at any time. This gives you the opportunity to explore your surroundings and get settled into your hotel. In the evening there will be a welcome meeting, where you can get to know your new travel family and review the details of your adventure with your guides.

    • Do you arrange airport transfers?

      Airport transfers are not included in the price of this tour, however you can pay for an arrival transfer in advance. In this case a tour operator representative will be at the airport to greet you. To arrange this please contact our customer service team once you have a confirmed booking.

    • Can you assist with booking additional accommodation?

      Of course we can! If you wish to arrange additional accommodation then please contact our customer support team once you have a confirmed booking.

    • What is the age range?

      The age range for this tour is 18 to 39 year olds, as the itinerary is designed to suit this age group. Those outside of this age range are unable to participate in the tour.

      G Adventures offer similar options under their Classics style tours, which are designed to suit a wider age group. If you like the look of this tour then we recommend checking out the China Express tour, which takes a similar route.

    • I'm a solo traveller, is there a single supplement?

      Solo travellers do not have to pay a single supplement as this is a group trip designed for shared accommodation. You will usually be paired in twin or multi-share accommodation with someone of the same sex for the duration of the trip, which is a great way to get to know your group and enrich your travel experience!

    • Are the flights included?

      Flights before and after the tour are not included in the tour price and you need to arrange these separately by yourself once your tour is guaranteed. As we specialise in organising the best tours around the world for you, we are unable to advise on flight prices or book flights on your behalf. If you have not already booked your flights we recommend checking out the following link which is powered by Skyscanner - https://flights.tourradar.com
