true beauty of China and provide you with a magical holiday
China was established following our passion of travelling
to the Orient.As a long established, specialist tour
operator, we work closely with the China, Japan and Korea National
Tourism Boards in the UK. We are also often asked for our expert
advice and recommended by travel professionals, such as The
of our guests are first time travellers to these countries and
many are booking to celebrate a special occasion. With this
in mind, we keep our ethics simple - stay focused and only
provide quality tours to the countries we have in-depth knowledge
about. We genuinely care about our guests and our objective
is to provide a magical holiday experience at a competative
Our China tours programmes are specifically
designed by ourselves and operated exclusively
for our guests by our experienced professional
English speaking guides. You can speak directly with
the actual China specialist who has planned your specific tour
and knows the country well.
Our itineraries and prices ar e all shown in detail online,
so you can see exactly what you are booking. However it is the
little things, that we arrange whilst you are abroad that makes
our tours so much more enjoyable and fulfilling.
Our full hotel selection is online, offers great value using
top 4 stars hotels and 5 star cruises.
We always try to state exact what we deliver - no misleading
'from' prices, no compulsary tipping and shopping trips. We
use normal landline numbers so there are no hidden charges,
if you wish to ring for a chat.
You may noticed that we don't provide all inclusive
holidays - we believe every traveller is special. Our tour programmes
and meal arrangement are kept as flexible as possible for our
small group, almost a private tour but sharing with like minded
people. We try to create every opportunity for your own free
time, to relax and enjoy your personal magical moments on holiday!
is the 4th largest country and has a long and facinating history
with many places to visit, spread right across this vast country.
Inevitably due to distances involved, you will spend part of
your holiday travelling. We use flights whenever possible,
as this is the quickest and most comfortable way to reach each
a truly memorable holiday, our tours include a combination
of must-see locations, cultural experiences and visiting places
of local charm. We feel many well known places are often shown
on TV and travellers have 'seen' it, but it is the local charm
such as a walk on a quaint cultural street, a boat ride on a
river etc which makes the difference from a standard tour, compared
with a Magical China tour experience.
Chinese food is one of the highlights for our travellers on
tour. Our tours do not include all meals. Due
to travel time and traffic congestion, its
often not possible to have a rest and refresh yourself at your
hotel before taking evening meals. We think enjoying
food is important, especially when you have come so
far. Therefore we provide you more control to sample the type
of cuisine you like at your own leisure. Most hotels you stay
have various restaurants and staff are always keen to help.
Our guides can also recommend eating out places and restaurant
outside the hotel nearby or something different if you wish.
A good dinner should still be much reasonable than eating in
a Chinese resturant in the UK, cost between £5 and £10
per person including a drink.
tours are arranged on a Small Group basis average 10
people per group and maximum 16, as we feel this gives
our travellers more flexibility and enjoyment. By reducing the
group size our experienced local guides are able to get to know
you all individually and show you the true beauty of China.

and greet you upon your arrival in China based upon your particular

is a huge country in terms of geographical scale and has a
diversify culture. Although most of our tour packages are
suitable to all travellers, it is advisable to bear in mind
the degree of walking involved. Some main sightseeing places
are a mile in length, and even the ones situated on level
ground, can still require steps to ascend and descend. Therefore,
it is worth to consider your fitness and agility to travel
with this requirement.
