Tour Itinerary

Days 1-2: Fly to Beijing 

Fly overnight to China’s historical capital, Beijing. Depending on your time of arrival, the rest of the day is yours to start soaking up the local culture.

Day 3: Forbidden City 

Meet the group in the hotel lobby. We start in Beijing’s symbolic heart, Tiananmen Square, before entering the sprawling magnificence of the Forbidden City to explore this complex full of imperial riches. We will then take a ride through a traditional hutong neighbourhood on rickshaws, popping in to visit a family at home for lunch and to learn about life living in the hutongs.

Day 4: The Great Wall 

This morning is dedicated to China's most iconic sight - the Great Wall. Taking a walk on this incredible structure is the best way to appreciate its sheer magnificence and dramatic scenery that surrounds it. This afternoon, stroll through the idyllic landscapes of the Summer Palace.

Day 5: Little Wild Goose Pagoda

Fly to the ancient city of Xian. We start at the lovely Little Wild Goose Pagoda, where the group will try ‘Guohua’, traditional Chinese painting with black ink, to decorate a fan. Next, we will stroll through the atmospheric Muslim Quarter, browsing the food stalls and learning about the significant importance of this city as the start of the Silk Road.

Day 6: Terracotta Warriors 

After their fortuitous discovery in the 1970s, the Terracotta Army of China’s first emperor, Qin Shi Huang, has intrigued visitors ever since. We spend the morning admiring the enigmatic ranks of the life-size warriors and horses, before stopping by the workshop of the craftsmen who recreate Terracotta Warriors.

Day 7: Bullet Train to Chengdu 

As a group we will take the bullet train to the city of Chengdu, the capital of Sichuan province.

Day 8: Pandas 

A visit this morning to Chengdu’s famous Panda Conservation Centre allows us to learn about China’s famous bears and we also get a chance to see them up close as they munch through piles of bamboo and play.

Days 9-10: Yangtze River Cruise 

Over the next three days as we cruise downstream, we will pass through some of China’s most celebrated scenery – be prepared for one breathtaking panorama after another. Join side trips and shore excursions, ending with the Three Gorges Dam.

Day 11: Fly to Shanghai 

Disembark the cruise vessel in Yichang and transfer to Wuhan; from here we fly to the exuberant and cosmopolitan city of Shanghai.

Day 12: Explore Shanghai 

This morning, the group will visit the peaceful Yu Garden, old town, Silk Factory and stroll along the Bund. After lunch together, the afternoon is at your leisure. 

Day 13: Huangpu River Cruise

Today is a free day to spend in Shanghai as you wish. Choose to further explore this city on your own or with your new-found friends or choose from optional tours including a ride on the super speedy Maglev train or ascend Jin Mao Tower. This evening the group will meet for a panoramic cruise on the Huangpu River.

Day 14: Fly Shanghai to UK
