FAQs on China Family Tours

What kind of activities are in China that children may like?

We focus on providing enjoyable private holidays for families by having activities that suit children, such as Kung Fu shows, kite flying, pottery-making, biking on the City Wall, dumpling-making and the panda experience. We can also create a custom trip according to your specific interests.

Which is the ideal month for traveling to China with our family?

The best time is in April, May, September and October when the weather is nicest. But honestly speaking, there is no absolute perfect time of year. There will be crowds during the high season and unpleasant weather during the low season. If you travel with infants or toddlers, choosing a time with pleasant climate would be more important. However for teenagers, just go when you can and make enough preparations. China is waiting for you all year around.

Will we have the right guide who is concerned families, especially for children?

We will arrange a family oriented tour guide for you. Our guide will be patient and always sensitive to the needs of your family. Our guide will also take extra care of families with children. Also you will have the guides' cell phone number with you before you enter China.

Will we have a chance to visit a local family?

If your destination includes Xian, you will have a chance to visit a local family and have lunch there. We will specially arrange dumpling-making for you. It will be a fun and bonding experience for your entire family.

Is Great Wall hiking tough? Which section of the Great Wall is better for elders and kids?

We recommend Mutianyu Great Wall for families. You can take a cable car up to the wall. The children may like a toboggan (slide) ride down. The hike will be at a moderate pace lasting about 2 hours.

Will seniors or children enjoy discount entrance fees at attraction sites?

Children under 12 years old can enjoy preferential rates on land service and discount airfare. The majority of scenic spots only offer senior rates for those that hold Chinese Senior Card or equivalent ID Card. And not all scenic spots offer children rates. If you would like to have a try if children tickets would be available on the spot, we can remove ticket prices from the tour package leaving you to purchase entrance tickets fees on your own.

Shall we get interconnecting rooms?

We use our carefully selected comfortable hotels for our China family vacation and we will take interconnecting rooms as the first consideration when booking hotel rooms for you. If not available, we at least promise adjacent rooms for you.

Are the activities involved in your tours safe for kids?

We choose kids-friendly activities. There are no adventurous elements in our tours. There would be some walking involved but usually no more than 2 hours. You can just talk with your guide anytime your kids need a rest. But of course, do not let your kids go out alone, keep them close by at all times.

Will there be a lot of driving during the land tour? Will there be seat belt equipped vehicles?

We keep the time spent on driving to a minimum for leisure family holidays. Generally, the longest land transfer will be around 1.5 hours to 2 hours in our itineraries. And yes, there will be seat belt equipped vehicles.

Are there any special local customs that we should follow?

For travelling to the cities included in our tours, there are no special conventions other than the basic social etiquette. If you have any questions, just follow advice from your local guides.

The best time to visit Beijing is in April, May, September and October when the weather is neither too hot nor too cold. Traveling in Dember is a bit challenging as the weather is cold at that time with an average temperature of -2°C/28°F.

However, it is also the off season with not too much tourists and you may have chance to see the snow-covered Great Wall and Forbidden City, which is unique and beautiful. You are suggested to wear heavy clothes to keep warm such as woolen sweater, down coat, warm gloves, scarf, hat, etc.

Hi, according to my experience, at least two days are needed to cover the highlights of Beijing. For Xi'an, I think two days are enough, one day to visit Terracotta Warriors and take a city trip on the other day. In Guilin, you can experience the Li River cruise to Yangshuo and spend the second day exploring the sightseeing attrations in the city like Reed Flute Cave and Elephant Trunk Hill. One day is ok to cover the main attractions in Shanghai, but if you would like to visit a water town, two days are required. As for Hong Kong, one day is enough to explore the Hong Kong Island only, if you also want to visit other places, like Disneyland or Ocean Park, then another two or more days are needed.

In winter most areas in China become cold and dry. It may snow in the cities in the northern area. Where will your family visit in Dec? Actually the weather does not affect the outdoor activities much. You can still climb the Great Wall even during snowing.
