Wonders of China Journey

Travel through centuries and explore the Wonders of China. The sheer sweep of geography, history culture, and cuisine are remarkable.  Throughout this private tour, you’ll be enjoying the finest luxury hotels and specially curated experiences that offer you a true insight into the culture of China – the world’s fastest changing nation.

View life as it once was as you explore the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square and the old alleys of Beijing. 

Understand life today in the city and countryside by interacting with local people during your trip.  Hike along a particularly picturesque section of China’s Great Wall. It took millennia to build, but today the Great Wall stands out as one of the world’s most famous landmarks. We’ll also tour impressive architectural masterpieces such as the Temple of Heaven and the Summer Palace.


Ride on a high-speed train to Xian, a major stop on the Silk Road.  Go underground and see thousands of famed Terracotta Warriors standing guard.  Explore a local night market and the lively street of the Muslim Quarter. Next, fly to Guilin and Yangshuo. Renowned as a paradise on Earth, this region is famous for its landscape of Karst mountains, green hills, and winding rivers, resembling a beautiful Chinese painting. Lose yourself in mystical, storybook landscapes while cruising the Li River.

Then experience the unbridled energy of Shanghai, a hypermodern, cutting-edge city of over 24 million that draws visitors who appreciate art, design, food, and style. Learn about Shanghai’s history through the architecture of the Bund, the French Concession, Pudong and other districts. Take a day trip to Suzhou, a nearby water town to cruise canals lined with Ming Dynasty homes.
