Our Story

China Travel was created by a group of passionate travel lovers. They traveled a lot and experienced many unpleasant tours, like boring tours, inflexible tours and ‘tricked to shop’ tours. They got tired of them and aimed to explore better tour experiences.

Once they planneda trip to Shanghai, and they experienced some fun activities, like riding a gondola withtheir own hands. They realized and believed that fun activities are the spice of a tour. Flexible tours,including fun activities to experience the culture,were what they started to do.

China Travel also realized that with internet they can help even more people who are not familiar with China but would like to be, to fulfill their dreams.

President Clinton and his family visited Guilin with us in Jul. 2. 1998.

The Lakers basketball star Andrew Bynum visited Guilin with us in 2009

Shanghai Tour Guide

This is a LONG over-due review (since we traveled in March) of what was a nicely paced day spent outside of Shanghai, in Suzhou and Tongli Water Town. This was a private tour with a driver and our guide, Jen, who was quite friendly and eager to please. Overall, my communicationwith China Travel (Vanessa) and our tour experience with Jen was very positive, and we would recommend their company to others!
