About This Tour

Everything in China seems just a little bit grander, and even in the midst of frantic modernization it is easy to find evidence of China’s glorious traditions. Not even the dour and rather unstylish Communists could squelch the country’s past glories. Time, however, can be a cruel opponent, reshaping the landscape or whittling away at the monuments of human civilization. With such an ancient history, change is inevitable.

The tour begins in Beijing, visiting the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square and the beautiful Temple of Heaven. Walk upon the Great Wall of China, see the Ming Tombs and the amazing Terra Cotta Warriors of Xi’an. In the lovely town of Guilin, marvel at the picturesque scenery that has inspired painters and poets for centuries. The tour comes to a dramatic conclusion in ultra-modern Shanghai, completing an overview of a Dynasty unlike any in history.
