Although many package tours of China are advertised, they often achieve bargain pricing by sacrificing quality of hotels, restaurants, and guides. Tour groups may be large, and the selection of sights and the allocation of time between them is often arbitrary. Many experienced travelers therefore prefer to arrange their own itineraries, suited to their own interests and giving flexibility during the tour to change allocations of time as circumstances change. This is the principal business of China Road Ltd., which has extensive experience in design and implementation of customized itineraries. Tours can be designed with special emphasis on historical sites, architecture, traditional gardens, golf or hiking, religious destinations, river cruising, archaeology, music, folklore, cuisine, shopping, easy access, or natural beauty. Packages can include guided events in some places and self-directed time in other places. We can also provide a representative to pick you up at any major airport or train station in China. If you have interest in a custom tour, please provide as much information as you can about your preferred destinations and time of travel, or give us a call to discuss some of the alternatives.
