China Travel was created by a group of passionate "Travel Lovers" who had traveled extensively in China and experienced many unpleasant tours. There were boring tours, inflexible tours and ‘tricked to shop’ tours. China Travel got tired of such tours and aimed to explore how they could create better tours that were meaningful interesting tours where visitors could experience seeing, hearing, tasting, smelling, and touching all of the beauty and grandeur China has to offer

Our China Travel team went on a research tour of Shanghai. Their goal was to comfortably present ideas to their visitors, which included a variety of fun, creative activities that they could incorporate into their own tour itineraries. The China Travel Team experienced many interesting, fun activities while in Shanghai. They strolled through the streets of the Bund, enjoyed its beautiful and historical architecture, greeted the locals and sampled many tasty foods. They also took a ride on a gondola and powered it with their own hands. They had fun!

China Travel realized, and believed, that flexible tours, with plenty of fun, interesting activities in which to experience Chinese culture, its history, its beauty and its delicious cuisine was the spice of a tour; and something their visitors would forever hold in their hearts.

Shanghai Tour Guide

This is a LONG over-due review (since we traveled in March) of what was a nicely paced day spent outside of Shanghai, in Suzhou and Tongli Water Town. This was a private tour with a driver and our guide, Jen, who was quite friendly and eager to please.
