Yes we are home now and very happy with our holiday. Everything was really great and I would recommend China and your company's services to everybody. The guides were knowledgeable and, apart from Michelle in Shanghai, were always prompt. The quality of the hotels was excellent value and the food great. The sightseeing was stunning and in many places, on the suggestion of the guides, we saw or participated in extra events, shows and shopping.
We really loved the area around Guilin and the time with our son was tremendous. He is getting quite good at speaking Mandarin and reading characters and has some wonderful local friends.
If I could make one suggestion it would be that the overnight stay in Suzhou be changed to Tong li as that area was much more interesting and we would have loved to spend more time there instead of in Suzhou.
Our deepest thanks for your assistance. We will definitely return.
Greetings from Singapore! :) We have returned from our China trip and miss the pandas very much. Thank you very much for helping us with all the arrangements. I would like to give my thanks to our guide Daniel too. If possible, please share with us his email address so that we can write to him too.
When I return to China in the near future, I will definitely consider China Exploration again!
Once again, thank you! :)
With best regards
Although we are recognised as the premier tour agency for holidays in this vast country we never rest on our laurels and constantly strive to improve our already excellent service and come up with new and exciting itineraries for our clients. Wherever you wish to visit we are able to put together a schedule especially for you, taking in all the places that your group wishes to see. As there are so many interesting sights and lots of activities that you can participate in we would recommend booking a tour that lasts for several weeks although we do appreciate that this is not possible for people with busy lives so are more than happy to work with clients to produce an itinerary suitable for stays from several days up to a month or more. For a China tour agency that offers a flexible service we are one of the best companies to choose as our staff has many years experience in creating tailor-made holidays. Whether you want to see the famous sights such as the Great Wall or get off the beaten track and enjoy activities such as horse riding and skiing, we can make all the arrangements for you.
Owing to the explosive growth in industry, China has become a popular destination for businessmen looking for new opportunities and we are happy to facilitate visits to factories and book venues for conferences if required. One of the biggest barriers to doing business with Chinese companies is language and with this in mind we have established relationships with reliable interpreters who can accompany you and provide simultaneous translation services. The best China tours include travel arrangements that ensure you arrive at each destination refreshed and ready to do business and we always take this into account when putting together a schedule for our corporate customers. Being in business to make a profit ourselves, we understand the need to stick to a budget and will do everything we can to select the most cost-effective options. For firms that already have a prospective partner in mind we will ensure that their representative gets all the support that they need whilst in our country. Other firms may only have a general idea of the kind of business they want to conduct and for these people we can make recommendations and provide introductions to Chinese companies that we consider would make reliable business partners.
In addition to the tailor-made options we also offer readymade package tours in the Beijing area that customers are welcome to join. These not only offer excellent value for money but take in many of the places that visitors most like to visit. Each tour lasts for approximately 8 hours and there are 4 different ones to choose from. Some of the places that are featured on these tours include the Ming Tombs, the Forbidden City, the Temple of Heaven and Beijing Zoo. All tours include a typical Chinese lunch, an English speaking guide to take you around the sights and entrance tickets to most places. Many people enjoy making new friends while they are on holiday and this is much easier if communication is not a problem. Because of this, all of our daily China group tours are put together exclusively for English speaking travellers. This makes it much easier to discuss the sights as you walk around and many people stay in contact with friends they make in this way. Spacious air-conditioned coaches ensure that you are comfortable at all times and we always leave plenty of empty seats so that nobody is cramped or unable to move.
We hope that most of the time our clients will be busy enjoying themselves exploring our beautiful country but everybody likes somewhere comfortable to come back to at the end of the day and we are able to arrange stays in many top hotels located in all the major cities. These range in quality from three to five stars and we are able to find something to suit all budgets. Your China tour guide will be able to assist if there are any special requirements that you would like to request, although the staff at most hotels should be able to speak English fairly well. Depending on the accommodation you choose there may be facilities such as restaurants serving Western cuisine and fully equipped gyms for the use of customers. We regularly check all the hotels we use so you can be sure they all provide excellent service and value for money. Clients can either leave the selection up to us or have a look through the hotels listed on our website and choose the one that they find most appealing. If there is anything in particular that you need then we will be happy to recommend a suitable place.
Being one of the best China tour operators you will find, as well as the tours of Beijing mentioned earlier we are also able to arrange day tours of most of the major cities in China for one or more people, with prices depending on the number of people in your group. You can read detailed itineraries on our website for the cities that you are interested in visiting and these include places like Shanghai, Kunming, Chengdu and Hangzhou. The tour prices include being picked up and dropped off at your hotel, an air-conditioned vehicle with driver and a guide to show you around. Although not compulsory it is customary to offer a small tip to the driver and guide at the end of the day if you are happy with their service. As long as you have the time our China tours can include day trips around as many of these cities as you would like to visit. We do not expect our clients to be familiar with the location of all the towns and cities in the country so if you let us know which ones you are most interested in then we can work out a schedule.
Once you are ready to make a booking we will need a deposit within 7 days and the balance of the cost of your holiday at least 20 days before you are due to travel or alternatively you can pay the balance in cash on arrival in China. It will be necessary to obtain a visa before leaving your home country and we are able to provide a letter of invitation if this is required by your local consulate or embassy. Once your China tour package is booked we will do everything we can to ensure that no changes are made to the itinerary but there may be occasions such as when the weather is particularly bad where we have to make minor adjustments. As we make every effort to ensure that all our customers have a great holiday it is unlikely that you will encounter any problems. If there is anything at all that you are not happy with then please let our representative know and they will try to put things right. We have spent many years building an enviable reputation by providing our clients with the holiday of a lifetime and your happiness is our top priority.
