In its five millennia of existence, China has experienced its fair share of upheaval & revolution and more than its fair share of innovation - the invention of paper, printing and the compass, to name a few, have had a massive impact on the development of the world.

Today China is an ancient culture reinvented; whilst some aspects of life remain as they have for thousands of years, especially in rural areas, many aspects are being embellished by the new, with state-of-the-art modernity endemic in every town and city. Because of this the rewards of travelling through China are endless whether you come looking for ancient heritage or contemporary culture.

From the biggest, most magnificent sights on everybody's bucket list - the Great Wall and Terracotta Warriors to name a few, to languid pandas, vibrant mega-metropolises, serene landscapes and undiscovered corners, China is as diverse, complex and rich as a whole continent. Every province brings a new set of flavours to its cuisine and a new range of beliefs, philosophies and languages to its people – and all of it is ripe for exploration. The hardest bit is just deciding where to go first.

Frequently Asked Questions about China

  • When is the best time to travel to China?

    The best times to visit China are in the Spring, which falls between April – May and then in the Autumn, which is between September – October. This is when the weather is much more comfortable for tourists to explore.

  • Are the meals all local cuisine or are there any western meals and do they cater for vegetarians?

    As our tour focuses on unique and authentic experiences restaurants are hand-picked to ensure quality and authentic traditional dishes. Vegetarians and vegans are well catered for as we make sure all dietary requirements are sent over to the guides prior to departure.

  • Is there a lot of walking involved on our China tours?

    We grade our tours on level of activity and amount of walking involved, which can be found on the tour pages on the website and in our brochures, under ‘Physical Rating’. We grade the tours as follows:

    • Level 1 – A reasonable level of fitness is required, but its more about spending time on your feet rather than covering large distances.
    • Level 2 – This will involve a little more time on your feet than level 1 tours and may involve a bit more walking or steps.
    • Level 3 – A good level of fitness is required, as around 2-3 hours of walking will be required per day. Other activities such as cycling, may be included and walking longer distances.
    • Level 4 – Level 4 is similar to level 3 but the activities may be of longer duration or a more challenging terrain.
    • Level 5 – You’ll need to be fit and adventurous to participate in these tours as in some cases you will be active for most of the day on tough terrain or have physically demanding activities.
  • What part of China is the Great Wall in?

    The Great Wall of China stretches from Shanhaiguan on the Bohai Sea to Lop Lake in the Gobi Desert – around 4,000 miles. Most people visit the Great Wall from Beijing.
