We’re excited to announce our newest destination for 2016- CHINA! Our 12 Day Golden China program will include the must see cities of Biejing and Xian, then continue to explore China’s natural wonders in Huanglong and Jiuzhaigou National Park, before finishing with a visit to the Panda Reserve Center in Chengdu.

We understand time is precious so make sure to avoid shopping and tourist traps.
