Today, group travel offers surprising versatility. Travelers can choose from budget, first-class, or super-deluxe package tours by selecting the types of hotels and menu plans they prefer, including new options such as a-la-carte dining and dine-around plans, appealing to the most discriminating tastes.
Most tourists visit China as part of an organized tour group, usually visiting several cities and many of China's famous sites. Group travel offers important benefits, such as cost savings on hotels and transportation and the services of local English speaking guides. An experienced guide will enhance the enjoyment of the trip, since they are usually familiar with the area and knowledgeable about a region's historical background.
Group tour packages generally include most meals, hotels, sightseeing, transportation, evening entertainment, baggage handling, taxes, and visa arrangements.
