    FAQs on Small Groups

    Why your prices are quite lower than other China tour operators?

    Here are some facts that we offer excellent services in China small group tours while maintaining lower prices.

    First and foremost, our website has long been in the top three hits on major search engines like Google since we offer comprehensive and useful content, as well as accurate and up-to-date travel information. The organic ranking has saved us huge advertising expense, thus enabling our products more competitive.

    Secondly, we are offering tours directly to clients, not through the third party who builds the price up by 20% higher as customary. In this case, we can avoid the middle-man charge.

    Thirdly, we have been in travel E-business for 20 years, due to the increasing number of travelers with us each year, we have set up good and long-term cooperation with the hotels, airlines and many other direct suppliers, so we could always get the best price.

    With these advantages, we are able to offer the clients top quality China tours with the most favorable prices, and that's exactly what we do right now.

    Do I need a visa to China?

    A visa is needed by most visitors to China (excluding visits to Hong Kong). These are easy to obtain from the local Chinese embassy or consulate in your countries or regions. Usually visitors should apply for tourist visas (L). As your travel agency we are pleased to offer a free invitation letter to help you obtain your visa. The visa application process usually takes 5 to 7 working days. For detailed information about a visa, please consult your local Chinese embassy or consulate.

    What are the main differences between small group and private travel?

    We are a reliable, highly respected and well-reputed China tour operator. We specialize in both escorted group tours and private vacations.

    Our small group China tours are best for those who are eager to see the most popular venues in China. There is a wide choice of discounted itineraries with fixed departure dates in our comprehensive group tour list giving the best deals for the years of 2020 & 2021. We make every effort to make you feel like part of a friendly family and get the utmost enjoyment from your trip. Meeting like-minded people is exciting, but making lifelong friends is a great bonus of group travel.

    A private trip is run exclusively for you, your family with seniors or children, or friends and no other people. You may choose an ideal pre-made private itinerary on our website, or we can customize one in line with your specific wishes. All arrangements are flexible to fit your travel style.

    How many people will there be on a small group?

    Unlike those agencies catering for groups of 25 to 30 clients, our group size is 1 to 18 people. It is our belief these smaller groups ensure that members get maximum enjoyment from their trip and have a more meaningful interaction with the guide. In 2019, our average group size was 14 people.

    What is the average age of people on your group?

    According to our statistics in recent years, the average age of our group travelers is estimated at 45. 60% of our customers are middle-aged and senior people, and 40% are young people. You will never be disappointed with the chat with people at your age, or make some cross-age friends.

    What if I arrive early or late for a small group tour?

    No matter how early or late you arrive, we will arrange your airport pick-up without delay. The only thing you need to do is to give us advance notice of your arrival time.

    If you arrive a few days earlier than our scheduled group package, we can book the extra night hotel accommodation and customize private activities for you before joining the group. Likewise, you can also extend your vacation to any of your interested destination after the end of whole escorted group package. We can take care of everything for you if you need.

    Some people may worry about being late for the trip due to an international flight delay or change. In such circumstances, please keep us informed with the updated flight schedule. We will make all necessary alternative arrangements. Rest assured that, whatever happens, our aim is to give visitors a trouble-free holiday experience.

    Is Wi-Fi available in the hotels?

    Yes, all the hotels we use for 2020 and 2021 group tours have free Wi-Fi connections in the guestrooms and lobbies. However, if your China group tours covers a Yangtze River Cruise, the cruise company usually charges extra fees for using Wi-Fi onboard.

    Can I bring my children and how do you charge for my children?

    Sure, children are always welcome to join our top quality China group tours. We quote prices for children according to their age. A child under 12 years old can enjoy great discount on the adult fare on the land service charge and domestic airfares. Travelers aged 12 and over will be charged as adults.

    For infants under 2 years old, we only charge the necessary infant airfares during the guided China tour. But if your trip includes a Yangtze River cruise, you need to pay an extra percentage of the cruise fee for the baby according to the cruise company's policy.

    What airlines do you use during the trip?

    In the main, we book internal air tickets from the four largest Chinese airlines including Air China, Southern Airlines, Eastern Airlines and Hainan Airlines, all which have good safety records. Their service quality, competitive airfares and world-class aircraft have made them reliable choices.

    Can I book my own hotel if I travel with your group?

    Sorry, this is not going to work. Our small groups are all-inclusive escorted China tours. There will be an experienced English-speaking guide and an experienced driver in each city to serve the whole group, so all group members need to stay in the same hotel to maximize the use of sightseeing time and also benefit from the hotel group room rate.

    What time does your group start and end every day?

    The full day sightseeing visit usually starts at around 08:30 and ends at about 18:00, timing may change slightly according to the season. For days with evening shows included, we may finish the day at around 21:00.

      I'm 68 years, China is the 57th country I've visited.
      I declare, was one of the greatest experiences of my life the 14-day small group tour, organized by TCG. Magical natural environment, rich cultural heritage, the harmony of tradition and modernity, kind, helpful and environmentally friendly people they impressed me. Places, monuments, facilities and cultural attractions along the route are all about themselves. But it was just as great an experience for me: visiting Beijing's old Hutong; In Xian, the host cooked lunch at the home of a local family and Tai Chi morning at City Wall Park; Yangshuo Authentic West Street Market, Guilin for an evening stroll downtown in the shopping district; In Shanghai the Bund in the evening light; an eternal memory 5.5 hours on the Li River, 3 days on the Yangtze River and 1 hour on the Shanghai Huangpu River. The world is not round without China, and if it's China, it's just Travel China Guide! Extremely professional team with excellent guides. If I go to that area again I travel with them again.
      On behalf of my 4-person family thank you for everything!

      We planned a 16-day China small group tour with Travel China Guide and it didn’t disappoint us! All of the guides were meticulous and gave us professional explanations in detail. Our drivers were punctual and grasped good driving skills. A very smooth trip! Next time I will travel to Yunnan with TCG!

      The 11 days China small group tour to Zhangjiajie from Beijing was richly arranged and we had an enjoyable time on the whole journey especially in Zhangjiajie! We paid a two-day visit to the Zhangjiajie National Forest Park. I love the adventure of walking on the Glass Bridge at the Grand Canyon. You must try it if you are brave enough. The natural views of the mountain were extremely gorgeous and we couldn’t help taking a lot of picturesque pictures!

      The elaborately designed itinerary of this wonderful 10 days China tour was good value for money and full of surprises. Our guide Tracy Yu was very dedicated to sharing the interesting facts with us and easy to get along with. Highly recommended!

      Many thanks to the attentive service of TCG. In general, we had a nice conclusion of our 11 days China small group tours from Beijing to Shanghai. I liked the itinerary of Xi’an most, but I also regretted that the Xi’an trip was not perfect. It rained heavily when we visited the City Wall, so our visit had to be delayed! But the other activities in Xi’an were all satisfying and we also paid a visit to a local family to join them for learning simple dishes. A very interesting experience

      Special praise for Carol Chen, she was a professional and dedicated tour guide in Xi’an. Her explanations of the Terracotta Army were very wonderful and from which I learned so many interesting facts about Qin Shi Huang.

      The itinerary of 8 days China small group tour was well arranged and every activity was interesting and meaningful! It was a well-pleasing trip to China!

      Leanne Gu, our guide in Shanghai was knowledgeable and very fluent in English. She led us to explore the charming city and her explanations made us have a better understanding of Shanghai. The 11 days China small group tour from Beijing to Shanghai was not in vain. We would like to express our sincere thanks to every employee of your company.

      We were tired but satisfied with the 16 days China small group tour from Beijing! Good itinerary plan & smooth journey made us had a deep impression on Travel China Guide. The guides in each city tried their best to make sure to provide the best service. My experience in Chongqing was not very pleasant, because I caught a cold when it rained in Chongqing. But the guide took good care of me and made me feel better. A big THANK to our responsible guide and TCG team!

      The 11-day China small group tour of Beijing-Xi’an-Zhangjiajie-Shanghai was generally satisfactory due to the flexible guides and efficient travel consultant. All the attractions were unmissable and we got a lot more out of this trip than just visiting the sights and enjoying the natural scenery. A pleasing journey to China :)

      1. I had an amazing time with my excellent tour guide Gloria in Beijing! My 4 days small group tour was full of joy and excitement! She looked after me well and thoroughly introduced the rich cultural deposits of Beijing. Not only attractions but also corresponding cultural stories were included! INTERESTING!!! I was pleased to learn something about the Feng Shui knowledge of the Forbidden City and the Summer Palace! They were loading the mystery of this great nation! I was offered good value for the money. Highly recommended! ... More
