This China tour is ideal for any family seeking the best of China's urban culture in Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong, world-famous sights such as the Great Wall of China and the Terracotta Warriors in Xian, and time in Chengdu to see the giant pandas. Accommodations are among the most luxurious China has to offer and suitable for families of all ages. All touring is private and highly personalized based on each family's specific interests and requirements.

Begin with in-depth private touring of Beijing, China’s centuries-old capital. Tour imperial masterpieces such as the Forbidden City, the Temple of Heaven and the Summer Palace. Travel by rickshaw down the narrow hutongs (lanes) of a traditional residential neighborhood. Climb a little-visited hilltop for panoramic views over the rooftops of the Forbidden City. Stop at a local school to meet with Chinese children, visit a private home, and fly kites near the Temple of Heaven. Watch early morning tai chi exercises in a park. Hike along a stunning section of the Great Wall.

Fly to Shanghai, and experience the unbridled energy of China’s most stylish and modern city. During private touring, learn about Shanghai’s history through the architecture of the Bund, the French Concession, Pudong and other districts. Tour some of China’s best museums, including the Shanghai Museum. Your guide will also take you to Shanghai’s old town to sample dumplings and sweets, and have tea at the city’s oldest teahouse. Watch a performance by renowned Shanghai acrobats. If desired, take an excursion to Suzhou or another nearby water town to cruise canals lined with Ming Dynasty homes and gardens.

Next, fly to Xian, an ancient capital and a major stop on the Silk Road. See the famed Terracotta Warriors, and make your own (small) replica to take home. Ride bikes around the city walls, explore ancient temples and pagodas, browse markets, learn the basics of Chinese calligraphy, take a cooking class, and enjoy a banquet of dumplings, a local specialty.

Continue by air to Chengdu, the modern capital of Sichuan. See frolicking giant pandas at the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding, and learn about conservation efforts to reestablish their numbers in the wild. During private city touring, see highlights such as the Wide and Narrow Alleys, a historic area filled with shops and restaurants, and People’s Park, where locals socialize and play mahjongg. Dine on Sichuan’s spicy and delicious cuisine, and enjoy tickets to a performance of Sichuan Opera that includes the mysterious local art of face-changing. Other options include visiting nearby archaeological sites such as Sanxingdui to learn about the ancient cultures that once inhabited this area.

Conclude in Hong Kong, one of Asia’s most attractive and exciting cities, with a spectacular skyline, beautiful harbors and beaches, superb restaurants, bustling markets and much more. Stay in a room at The Peninsula and enjoy unbeatable views across Victoria Harbor. With your expert private guide and driver, see some of the world’s most incredible skyscrapers in Central. Ride the Peak Tram to the top of Hong Kong Island, and tour interesting residential neighborhoods in the hills. Dine on dim sum at teahouses. Explore local markets to learn about traditional Chinese medicine and unusual food products. Ride in a traditional sampan boat across Aberdeen Harbor. Visit Ocean Park, a favorite local theme park, or Hong Kong Disneyland. Or, perhaps hike with the whole family in the lush green hills of the New Territories.
