Guided China Tours

If you’re overwhelmed by the thought of planning international travel, you’ll be relieved by booking a guided China tour. China has a lot to offer, which can make you feel intimidated when looking at an adventure holiday. Leave it in the hands of experienced, professional guides so that you only need to worry about having the time of your life. These guides will accompany you from the time you land at the airport to the time you leave. They'll get you situated in only the best lodging, lead you to the best places to eat, and guide you on adventures that you wouldn't be able to have if only a guidebook accompanied you. With the variety of adventures awaiting you in China, these professional guides will help you make the best of your time and money.

Self-guided China Tours

Self-guided China tours are a perfect alternative for travelers who are looking for a little more privacy during their holiday. Your planning will still be taken care of for you, but you’re on your own to adventure by yourself. These professional guides will work out all of the logistics and provide you with a detailed plan, but these plans often have built-in leeway for you to make minor detours. This can be ideal when the rigidity of a strict itinerary makes you cringe!

China Hiking Tours

With so much incredible geography, you won’t have any problems finding a China hiking tour to suit you. You’ll find short day hikes through both jungle and desert to multi-week treks in memorable locations such as Tiger Leaping Gorge, the Yellow Mountains, and along the Great Wall.

One of the most adventurous Great Wall hiking tours is a weeklong stretch from Huangyaguan to Mutianyu. This tour takes you along some of the most rugged sections of the Great Wall with unlimited opportunities for photography. There are, of course, several other sections of the Great Wall with outstanding hiking itineraries, where you can either stay in spartan tents or cozy guesthouses each night.

The Li River provides several great hiking tour itineraries. This beautiful river is famous for cruises but is also surrounded by beautiful natural areas and vibrant culture. Guilin is one such area, with old towns, enchanting caves, and a spectacular landscape of symmetrical green hills and rock towers rising high above the terrain.

You’ll also want to check out hiking tours in the Yellow Mountains. You’ve most likely seen photos of the Yellow Mountains even if you don’t know it. This area is home to beautiful trekking routes that will take you to scenic natural locations with names like Cloud-Dispelling Pavilion, Bright Top, and Refreshing Terrace. The West Sea Grand Canyon, one of the most spectacular gorges in China, is also located in the Yellow Mountains.

China Cycling Tours

Many of the outstanding hiking regions are also perfect for cycling tours in China. Guilin and the Great Wall are especially suited for cycling tours, but there’s more! One of the best ways to see rural and historic China is a three-week cycling tour from Beijing to Shanghai. This incredible route will take you up into the mountains, past Daoist temples, along the Great Wall, and through the Three Gorges. You’ll also get a chance to see the famous terracotta warriors on this route! Experience rural China by cycling the backroads seldom visited by large groups of tourists.

If you don’t have three weeks for a China cycling tour, no worries, there are endless shorter routes. Sichuan province is perfect for these shorter cycling tours. Mostly known for its outstanding cuisine, Sichuan is also home to loveable pandas and is considered to be the birthplace of Chinese tea. Select a cycling tour that suits your physical abilities, interests, and available time – you’ve got options! Additional attractions you’ll see while cycling through Sichuan include deep gorges, ornate temples and shrines, and the ancient Leshan Giant Buddha, the largest seated Buddha statue in the world.

Scenery in China

The scenery in China is spectacular and varied, due to its enormous size and stellar location between the Pacific Rim and Himalayan mountain range. From the lower coastal plains to the high plateaus near Mongolia and Tibet, China offers a wide range of scenic treasures. China's long coastline features some beautiful beaches, though that's not what many adventure travelers think of when they come to China. China's rivers have significantly shaped the landscape; the Yangtze and Yellow Rivers are the largest in the country with tremendous historical, cultural, economic, and ecological significance. Other landscapes you'll find in China include bamboo forests, enormous deserts like the Gobi, and mighty snow-capped mountains in the Himalayas. In all, China has over 200 national parks and 50 UNESCO World Heritage Sites. One of China's biggest attractions, the Great Wall, can even be seen from space.
