3. What's the difference between group tour and private package?

Group tour means shared guide and shared vehicle, cost-saving but not customized, and also it is shopping tour, but you can know a lot of people from the group.

PRIVATE PACKAGE means we will provide you with a private vehicle, which is big enough for your group of people, and a private driver and guide for private tours and transfers as listed in our itinerary. Private tour is more flexible and valuable. You could spend more time at places you feel like than what has been scheduled. You could start your tour every day.

4. What's the arrangement of the vehicles for the tour?

Normally customers take care of the international flights on their own, and we can help you to book if you want. And the better thing is that leave the domestic transportation for travel agent, and they can book the train or flights based on your time and tour arrangement, it will be easy for them to change or cancel if there is any emergency.

5. How can we meet the guide at airport or train station?

Just tell the agent that your international flights information and we will arrange the guide and driver at the airport for you on time with your name card, and also the agent will arrange every city’s pick up and transfer for you, all you do is to enjoy worry-free trip in China.

6. Should we change our cell phone SIM card in China?

Normally you do not need, if you want to make a domestic call, you can ask help from the guide or hotel. If you want to communicate your travel agent at any time you want, tell them you need SIM card, they will arrange the guide help you to get one when you arrive.

And the SIM card will be 5-16$ with 4-15$ call charge in the card, which will be enough for your whole China tour.

7. What’s kind of clothes should we take? And what’s about the laundry?

Depends on how long you will stay and also the season, from late April to early Nov. you can just take some light clothes, other time, you need to take winter coat. And you can do the laundry in hotels where you will stay longer, and also different hotels have different charge rates. If necessary you can ask the guide to help to arrange it.

8. What’s the difference between shopping tour and non-shopping tour? Which one is better for me?

For shopping tour, you will be guided to some shops to buy things that you are interested, but this is not compulsive to buy, and shopping tour will be cheaper than non-shopping tour, but will be time cost in shops. And non-shopping tour you will not be guided to shops for the whole tour, and more time for sightseeing but more expensive.

If you want to buy something from China, shopping tour is better, and if you just want to enjoy the sightseeing non-shopping tour is the right choice. Also you can chose to have some shopping and non-shopping cities based on your needs if you go on a private tour.

9. How should I apply Chinese visa? Will you travel agent help with that?

Normally you need to go to the local Chinese embassy, and ask them what you should to prepare. And in some countries, they need invitation from China, so you can ask the Chinese travel agent to provide you the travel invitation, and then prepare some other documents, most time you can get the Chinese visa soon. And also you should apply the visa valid duration time based on your travel time, 15days, 30days or 90days.

10. Is it convenient for us to withdraw some money from bank in China? Should we bring cash with us for the tour?

If you hold visa card or MasterCard, you can get money at some ATM, and it will charge you some fee, different rate based on different card or country. Most shops and hotels can accept your credit card. And it is better for you to bring some cash with you, and you can change the cash at airport or hotel or bank, especially for USA dollar or Euro dollar, Australia dollar, most banks can accept that, but the change rate will change a little bit.

11. What if I get lost during the tour in China?

When you find the guide is not with you and can not find he or she in the immediate area, please don't panic, realize that your guide is not far away and he or she is actively looking for you. You will be found soon.

So you can stay where you are and let the guide find you. Do not move far away. This will ensure that you be found in a timely manner.

If there seems to be a problem with your guide finding you, find the nearest phone and call your travel company(local in China), the staff will help you to find the guide in the site. Or you can ask help from young people, because most young people can speak little bit English in China, and they will be pleasure to help you.

It takes 40 ~ 50 minutes to drive from Beijing airport to downtown area.

To take a taxi, it cost around 100~200 RMB depending on the distance of your hotel to the airport. Subway and airport bus express are another good choice too, and they are bilingual instruction with English and Chinese.

If you catch cold or have loose bowels, just get some medicine in drugstores. If you need some special medicine, it is better for you to bring enough from your country.

14. Do the bathroom match our needs?

Most hotels especially for foreigners have closestool and shower bath, and luxury hotel even have bathtub. The hotels for foreigners are at least 3-star hotels, so the facility will be good.
