Budget holiday to China
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

Small group tour to China
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...

China holiday, discover imperial China
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...

Terracotta Warriors Tours

The Terracotta Warriors are a collection of terracotta sculptures depicting the armies of the First Emperor of China. Take a Terracotta Warriors tour to see the figures which date from 210 BC and, although buried 22 centuries ago, they were discovered guarding the tomb of Emperor Qin Shi Huang in 1974 by some local farmers in the Shaanxi province. Terracotta Warriors tours can show you the three pits that originally contained over 8000 soldiers. Each statue was constructed by local craftsmen to be unique and they are life-sized. A Terracotta Warriors tour will reveal how much power the First Emperor possessed, enabling him to command such an impressive ensemble.
