China is a vast behemoth of a country and it can be tricky to travel in due to its size, the language barrier and the amount of organization required. This Trip does the hard part for you by organizing all the accommodation, transport and activities. Our China tours go much further than pure logistics though, with our awesome guides giving you a taste of off the beaten track places and genuine cultural experiences. Plus there are lots of chances to socialize too. With most travelers here aged between 18 and 35, with an average age of about 24, slightly more of whom are female. We do have older travelers though, with 40, 50 and even 60-somethings on board – often the most popular members of the group!
