Exciting family holiday in China
From
£1,320
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The itinerary planned by our operator worked out beautifully for my family of 8. A couple of the guides, especially Johnnie in Beijing and Susan in chengdu engaged with the children and helped make our time in those cities very enjoyable. we loved that logistics were taken care of by our guides n drivers.

South East China holiday, culture & nature
From
€1,950
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The minority villages as not many westerners get to see this part of China. They welcome you into their houses and although they have very little they gave us some oranges. We also visited a primary school which was great fun as we taught the children hopscotch and a few words of English. Tips? You will have a wonderful time. You have to be prepared to rough it a bit but its well worth it. A fascinating journey. Local benefits? Absolutely Overall... (more)Phil Linley

China Express adventure holiday
From
£899
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Lhasa was absolutely magical, seeing the Potalla Palace for the first time from the roof top bar of the hotel was breath taking. Tips? There is a lot of walking & the June temperature is about 38C with very high humidity. Staying a couple of nights in each place is also quite tiring. However, this should not detract from a fabulous trip. Local benefits? Not really applicable in China. Loved the real Tibetan hotel in Lhasa. Overall rating? Excellent... (more)Joan O

The Lake Baikal Homestay and the Mongolian Ger Camp... both have incredible memories for me that will stay with me for life! (more)Heidi Hosgood
I loved the train journey, chatting to the locals, making food, using the hot water urns at the end of the carriage and having the wheels changed on the Mongolia/China border was a fantastic experience. (more)Sally Foote
The most memorable was staying in a ger at Terelj National Park [Mongolia] and walking in the park... The most exciting was seeing the cosmonaut memorial in Moscow and balancing a Kazakh hunting eagle on my arm outside Terelj. (more)Christine Johnstone
Budget holiday to China
From
£1,499
excluding flights
The Great Wall was the most memorable part. None of the pictures really do it justice, the views are amazing. We went about 60KM away from Beijing and set off early. It was really worth it as it was not crowded at all and we almost had the Wall to ourselves. (more)Darren Grubb
It was great! The tour was well organized and the guide was awesome. China is a huge country, but you get to see a nice bit of it in this tour. (more)Candy Owens

We certainly used local transport (busses, trains and only once taxis). Overall rating? Most enjoyable. The only thing that didn't work out... (more)Sheila Taylor

Memorable parts? The museums in Chengdu, Kunming and Shanghai (all outstanding), and the monasteries and temples particularly Ganden Sumtseling Monastery near Shangri La. Tips?

From

All of the holiday was fantastic. I particularly enjoyed the train journey from Beijing to Lhasa. The visit to the nunnery was fun. There was nothing on my trip that I didn't enjoy so it's hard to choose 1 thing I enjoyed most. (more)Jules Palmer
Excellent....Go with an open mind, an attitude of adventure. It is a different country. You will not find the same facilities as at home. The food is different. But it's all part of the adventure. (more)Yoginee Patel
It was very memorable and exciting, and a good idea to go on a tour through a country that would be difficult to navigate alone. (more)Laura Tomlinson

Finding a replica of a Tang Dynasty sancai glazed, funerary sculpture of a camel and rider, which I had first experienced as part of an exhibition of artefacts from the ancient Silk Route mounted by the British Library in 2004 in a shop in Jiayuguan at a price that I could afford. Even though the Mogao Grottos are becoming commercialised, being able to see the frescos that are available in the caves that are open to the public was a wonderful experience. Tips? Be...

Memorable parts? Visiting the Panda Breading centre and watching a panda mum and baby 'playing' together. Then watching the baby slipping off the platform and mum rolling over to join her baby on the ground. So special. Tips? Be prepared to carry your luggage, particularly at the train stations. The coach is often not able to park close to the station, so you have to carry your luggage across busy streets and negotiate steps and escalators that aren't working!!! Be prepared for...
