Comprehensive in scope yet briefer in duration than many China tours, this relaxed, well-paced journey combines monumental Beijing, a cruise on the fabled Yangtze, fascinating Xian and cosmopolitan Shanghai.

Trip highlights include:

  • Beijing – Visit to Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City
  • Walk the Mu-Tian Yu, a less crowded section of the 2,480 mile Great Wall
  • Be astonished by the hand-carved Terra Cotta Army of Xian
  • Savor traditional meals of Peking Duck and Chinese dumplings
  • Embark on a three-night cruise on the Yangtze River to the Three Gorges Dam
  • Attend a Chinese acrobatics show
  • Visit Shanghai’s Children Palace where local children study traditional art forms
  • Tour the acclaimed Shanghai Museum of ancient Chinese art

Much, much more is available on this exciting tour program to China! With a maximum size of 24 travelers, you’ll want to reserve your spot today.

Optional Extension: A three night optional extension to Hong Kong is also available.

I would go again! It was a great introduction to China including the big destinations I always wanted to see. The loveliest surprise was the morning in the park with all the Chinese people dancing, exercising and playing games and instruments. I could have stayed for hours.
