Frequently Asked Questions

1. Do I have to choose an existing China Travel itinerary?

Of course not. With our tailor-made service, you can choose to create a fully custom itinerary with the help of our expert travel advisor or modify one of our existing itineraries to suit your specific needs and interests.

For example, you can change hotels to boutique ones instead of international brands, opt for a deeper experience in a place, and try some new and exciting activities.

2. How much does a tailor-made travel cost?

It depends on factors such as your destination, transportation, accommodation, number of activities, itinerary, travel style, and the size of your group.

A tailor-made trip seems a little more expensive, but you pay the full price for your tour package, including hotels, meals, private guides, high-quality vehicles, flights/trains, and trip experiences as indicated.

If you want a more affordable option, we can also customize it for you. For example, partially exploring on your own and partially with a guide, changing hotels and transportation, etc. 
Just tell us your needs and your professional travel consultant will tailor-make a suitable China trip for you.

3. How many days are suitable for a vacation in China?

It depends on your needs and how many destinations you plan to visit. We suggest you take around 1 - 2 weeks for your first China trip to cover the highlights of Beijing, Xi’an, and Shanghai.

No matter how many days you have even 1 day or  1 month long, just inform us of your needs, and we could make your vacation best at your wishes.

4. What is the minimum/maximum number for a customized tour?

This is a tailor-made tour exclusively for you, without any group size limitations. Whether you are just one person or a group of more than 50 people, we can arrange your trip according to your unique requests.

If you have a large group, we may provide 2 or more guides to ensure a better experience. Please get in touch with a tailor-made specialist consultant for more information.

5. How long does it take to get a response?

Usually, it takes one working day for your travel advisor to reply to you after getting your inquiry. 

It may take longer for her/him to send you the tour proposal with the price for a complicated or long itinerary, but she/he will inform you in advance.

6. Do you have a Cancellation Policy?

Yes. With over 25 years in the business, we understand that there can be various valid reasons for cancellations. That's why we offer a flexible Cancellation Policy.

You can enjoy a 100% refund on any payments made to China Travel 3 weeks before departure, excluding penalties charged by hotels and transportation if applicable. More details at Cancellation Policy
