China tailor made holiday, from Beijing to Shanghai
Memorable parts? Overall this was a fantastic trip and we feel very honoured to have been able to see all that we did, especially the Forbidden City, the Great Wall and the Terra Cotta Warriors. In Beijing we took a private Tai Chi lesson in the park at the Temple of Heaven. The two ladies that gave the lesson were great fun, patient and full of good humour.

Memorable parts? Most memorable was the opportunity to be in a Buddist Temple whilst the monks taking part in a service. Most exciting was being able to walk at least what felt like a couple of miles on The Great Wall in perfect weather conditions on a simply glorious autumn day. Tips? You do need to make sure that you either ask your Tour Leader or fellow travellers or have a copy of Lonely Planet about the places you visit whilst on the tour to make sure you do not miss out on the...

Excellent...Travel was well organised and we conversed and learned a lot about each otherís cultures. (more)Margaret Chapman
Every day of the walk offered something different - 5 very different challenges - the wild wall was definitely more challenging than the reconstructed and the feeling of having it to ourselves was marvellous. (more)Damaris Lakin
