China holidays

Tailor-made China tours created for you by local experts

Our local partner based in China

"Tailor-made travel is our speciality and we love creating trips that show our guests the highlights of China. Whether you want to get to grips with ancient traditions or explore the modern face of our rapidly changing country, we are ready to help you plan a trip to China!"

China's sheer size and variety can make it a daunting travel prospect and you need the right people to show you a country of this scale - we've picked just the ones. Our partner company has a fantastic team of 22, all of whom are Chinese locals living and working in Guilin. They have been in business since 1999 and have helped more than 14,000 travellers explore China, from the backstreets of Hong Kong to the mountains of the Mongolian border. Their founders, Wei and Ricky, love to explore the country and are always looking for new experiences - perhaps an untouched local village or a city night market. The whole team knows that China can seem daunting and their mission is to make its history and culture accessible to everyone. Like all companies on TravelLocal, they are locally-owned. All trips booked on the TravelLocal platform are 100% financially protected by ABTA, the UK's largest travel association, and all payments are handled here in the UK. TravelLocal carefully selects each local travel company we work with so our clients can book safe in the knowledge that they are doing so with experienced, trusted and passionate experts in their destination.
