China holiday, Beijing to Hong Kong
From

Memorable parts? The terracotta warriors at Xi'an and the Great Wall. Cherry, our guide although very young, was dedicated and gave us great tips and help when choosing restaurants and outings. Our group integrated very well and everyone was on time for going places. Tips? Travel light, but do take toilet paper!! Local benefits? 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
Beijing to Hong Kong holiday, China
From
£1,850
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The Great Wall of China. Tips? Travel light. You have to move your luggage on and off trains. Local benefits? It made us aware of the struggles for progress (inside toilets for locals), growing population (maybe mix high rises with smaller "original units"), whilst trying to keep local communities together. The variation attracts tourists. Overall rating? Fantastic. Local guides really knew their area, brilliant range of local food, not overly commercialised. (more)Susan McCulloch

Memorable parts? I can honestly say that we enjoyed it all. The quality of guiding and activities was good. Our local tour leader did a great job and was responsive to our needs - the structure and organisation enabled us to pack a lot in to the 14 days. It is really hard to pick favourites but Hong Kong was probably the least favourite part and we would have preferred more time elsewhere. The cultural/historical visits were enough to inform and illuminate without becoming too lengthy for... (more)Linda Mail

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.

From
£2,319

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...
