    FAQs on Small Groups

    Why your prices are quite lower than other China tour operators?

    Here are some facts that we offer excellent services in China small group tours while maintaining lower prices.

    First and foremost, our website has long been in the top three hits on major search engines like Google since we offer comprehensive and useful content, as well as accurate and up-to-date travel information. The organic ranking has saved us huge advertising expense, thus enabling our products more competitive.

    Secondly, we are offering tours directly to clients, not through the third party who builds the price up by 20% higher as customary. In this case, we can avoid the middle-man charge.

    Thirdly, we have been in travel E-business for 20 years, due to the increasing number of travelers with us each year, we have set up good and long-term cooperation with the hotels, airlines and many other direct suppliers, so we could always get the best price.

    With these advantages, we are able to offer the clients top quality China tours with the most favorable prices, and that's exactly what we do right now.

    Do I need a visa to China?

    A visa is needed by most visitors to China (excluding visits to Hong Kong). These are easy to obtain from the local Chinese embassy or consulate in your countries or regions. Usually visitors should apply for tourist visas (L). As your travel agency we are pleased to offer a free invitation letter to help you obtain your visa. The visa application process usually takes 5 to 7 working days. For detailed information about a visa, please consult your local Chinese embassy or consulate.

    What are the main differences between small group and private travel?

    We are a reliable, highly respected and well-reputed China tour operator. We specialize in both escorted group tours and private vacations.

    Our small group China tours are best for those who are eager to see the most popular venues in China. There is a wide choice of discounted itineraries with fixed departure dates in our comprehensive group tour list giving the best deals for the years of 2021. We make every effort to make you feel like part of a friendly family and get the utmost enjoyment from your trip. Meeting like-minded people is exciting, but making lifelong friends is a great bonus of group travel.

    A private trip is run exclusively for you, your family with seniors or children, or friends and no other people. You may choose an ideal pre-made private itinerary on our website, or we can customize one in line with your specific wishes. All arrangements are flexible to fit your travel style.

    How many people will there be on a small group?

    Unlike those agencies catering for groups of 25 to 30 clients, our group size is 1 to 18 people. It is our belief these smaller groups ensure that members get maximum enjoyment from their trip and have a more meaningful interaction with the guide. In 2019, our average group size was 14 people.

    What is the average age of people on your group?

    According to our statistics in recent years, the average age of our group travelers is estimated at 45. 60% of our customers are middle-aged and senior people, and 40% are young people. You will never be disappointed with the chat with people at your age, or make some cross-age friends.

    What if I arrive early or late for a small group tour?

    No matter how early or late you arrive, we will arrange your airport pick-up without delay. The only thing you need to do is to give us advance notice of your arrival time.

    If you arrive a few days earlier than our scheduled group package, we can book the extra night hotel accommodation and customize private activities for you before joining the group. Likewise, you can also extend your vacation to any of your interested destination after the end of whole escorted group package. We can take care of everything for you if you need.

    Some people may worry about being late for the trip due to an international flight delay or change. In such circumstances, please keep us informed with the updated flight schedule. We will make all necessary alternative arrangements. Rest assured that, whatever happens, our aim is to give visitors a trouble-free holiday experience.

    Is Wi-Fi available in the hotels?

    Yes, all the hotels we use for 2020 and 2021 group tours have free Wi-Fi connections in the guestrooms and lobbies. However, if your China group tours covers a Yangtze River Cruise, the cruise company usually charges extra fees for using Wi-Fi onboard.

    Can I bring my children and how do you charge for my children?

    Sure, children are always welcome to join our top quality China group tours. We quote prices for children according to their age. A child under 12 years old can enjoy great discount on the adult fare on the land service charge and domestic airfares. Travelers aged 12 and over will be charged as adults.

    For infants under 2 years old, we only charge the necessary infant airfares during the guided China tour. But if your trip includes a Yangtze River cruise, you need to pay an extra percentage of the cruise fee for the baby according to the cruise company's policy.

    What airlines do you use during the trip?

    In the main, we book internal air tickets from the four largest Chinese airlines including Air China, Southern Airlines, Eastern Airlines and Hainan Airlines, all which have good safety records. Their service quality, competitive airfares and world-class aircraft have made them reliable choices.

    Can I book my own hotel if I travel with your group?

    Sorry, this is not going to work. Our small groups are all-inclusive escorted China tours. There will be an experienced English-speaking guide and an experienced driver in each city to serve the whole group, so all group members need to stay in the same hotel to maximize the use of sightseeing time and also benefit from the hotel group room rate.

    What time does your group start and end every day?

    The full day sightseeing visit usually starts at around 08:30 and ends at about 18:00, timing may change slightly according to the season. For days with evening shows included, we may finish the day at around 21:00.

      Our 14 days small group tour of China kept consistent with the order we booked via the internet. It was great more than our expectations! We really enjoyed all the parts of the trip! The accommodation was nice! We had 10 nights at excellent 5-star & 4-star hotels. The beds were comfortable and tidy, and the service was good. The environment was so quiet and we slept well after a day visit!

      I liked the guide, Phoebe, in Xi’an. She was good looking and her explanations were in detail. It was the first time for me to have a package tour and the package tour had some advantages and disadvantages. One advantage was that we left the things to the travel agency and just enjoyed the trip. But we didn’t have much time to explore by ourselves! I preferred the independent travel! In short, my China tour was a success!

      Five-star !!! We had received warm greetings as soon as we arrived in Beijing! It was a good beginning of our China tour! The guide Lily took good care of every member of our group and always ready to give help. We were impressed by her warm-hearted and good service!

      We were surprised at the guides’ rich knowledge reserve. They cared about every member of our group and were ready to help. I especially liked the guide Lily in Shanghai. She was wearing a smile on the whole trip and guided us professionally. We knew that she wanted to let us enjoy the trip for the most part. We appreciated her for what she did for us. We did have a great time in China! Once more, thanks for a truly great experience!

      This time our China tour well suited our interests and demands. I especially thanked the travel consultant Emily for planning a good itinerary for us! She was professional and helpful. We were absolutely satisfied with her efforts! Also, it was friendly with old people and well fitted the family tour!!! In general, we thought it was an excellent trip and at a very good price in relation to the services that were offered!

      Our trip to China was amazing! I was a person who was strict with the environment. I was very satisfied with the accommodation. The hotel in Beijing was my favorite. The bed was incredibly comfortable; the breakfasts were plentiful, good, and diverse; and the waiters and waitresses were friendly and considerate. They had a happy, cheerful attitude and welcomed the opportunity to be of service, something we didn't always see in America. It was an absolute delight to be at that hotel!

      Our China tour was a pleasant trip! Our guide Kevin in Guilin was very nice. He took everything into account and took good care of everyone in our group, especially the old people.

      I had been to Chengdu for work before and I ordered a 3-day Chengdu trip on TravelChinaGuide to explore more about this city, which was very good. This time I booked a China tour. This was my first China small group tour to Beijing - Xi’an - Yangtze River - Shanghai and the whole trip was full of surprises. Although the weather was cold in January, we appreciated the history and cultural geography of Beijing with careful explanations and elaborate arrangements from our Beijing guide Linda. When seeing the Great Wall, we were very excited, marveling at the great masterpiece! ... More

      With kind regards, and thanks for a terrific experience. We felt good to book a package tour via the internet. I wanted to thank travel consultant Vera for returning all my emails and answering all my questions timely and professionally. She gave us much advice before we chose the 16 days small group China tour. Once more, thanks a lot!
