Frequently Asked Questions
|This is my first trip to China, which tour do you think I should take?|
There are two reasons when you make the choice; one is time while the other one is money. If you don't have so much time, the tours of HQCT-C01、HQCT-C02、HQCT-C03、HQCT-C04、HQCT-C05、HQCT-C11 are the best, which cover the most interesting places in China and need only about 8-20 days. If you choose HQCT-C01、HQCT-C02、HQCT-C03、HQCT-C04、HQCT-C05, you can visit Beijing, Xian, Shanghai，Guilin and only need 8-10 days. HQCT-C03 or HQCT-C06 on Yangtze River Tour is very attractive one because of the Three Gorges of Yangtze River, where you can completely relax yourself while enjoying the picturesque natural sights and historical relics, and you will find it quite worthwhile. If you are pressing for time and just happened to be in Beijing, you can consider our Beijing Tours, which has a carefully chosen list of tours in Beijing and the surrounding areas, from one to several days. If you prefer to spend more money on your tour, you can stay at the most deluxe hotels (top five star hotel), otherwise you can choose four star or three star hotels. Of course, whichever hotels you choose to stay, you will always enjoy the same high quality travel services from us.
|When is the best time to visit China?|
Generally speaking, April, May, September and October when the weather is the most comfortable. However these are the peak tourist months at the highest tour price. If you are a budget-minded traveler, you can choose other months for lower prices. Prices always drop a bit in the shoulder season, which runs from November through March and From June through August.
|Is travel insurance necessary?|
Yes. Please check your medical and accident insurance policies with your insurance agent. We strongly urge every client to purchase travelers' insurance.
|What to pack for my trip to China?|
We strongly suggest you PACK LIGHT and bring casual clothes. Laundry service is available in most hotels with reasonable charges. Plastic bags are convenient for separating laundry or wet clothes in suitcases. To dress for comfort is much more important than anything else during your trip. Here is the checklist:
A pair of sturdy, comfortable walking shoes.
A sports jacket and tie for men, and one or two dresses or pantsuits for women, will suit the most formal occasions while in China (especially on a Yangtze River Cruise).
Sweaters, shirts and jackets that can be layered to suit a range of climates.
A lightweight raincoat.
Warm woolen clothing, down overcoat, hat and gloves are recommended if you travel in winter season. Cottons are the best in summer time.
Electrical converter and adapter plugs. China's electrical system operates at 220 volts.
Hair dryer, razor, alarm clock.
Common toiletries, pocket--size tissue, lip balm, sun--tan lotion and sun glasses.
Camera, films and extra batteries. Negatives with regular speed are available in most places, slides can be difficult to find.
Reading materials, including a guidebook about the places you will visit.
A notebook to log your travel journals.
|What is the baggage allowance?|
Baggage allowance differs from international and China domestic flights; and varies between carriers. In general, transpacific flights allow two pieces of check-in luggage per person. For China domestic flights, only one piece of check-in luggage (no more than 44 pounds or 20 kg) is allowed. One standard carry-on is allowed per person for both international and China domestic flights. We recommend that you pack a duffel bag in your suitcase to use as an additional piece of luggage for your return flight home. If you do travel with more than one piece per person, a fee may be imposed for extra piece of excessive weight. All baggage should be locked while traveling.
|Can I drink the tap water in China?|
No. You can use the tap water to brush your teeth. We recommend that you drink only bottled water or boiled water. Bottled water is available at hotels and local stores.
|How should I book my tour, what about deposits, payments and refunds?|
When we finish discussing the itinerary, a deposit of US$400 per person is required in order to confirm all services in China. Final payment is due 45 days prior to international arrival in China.If you cancel your tour prior to the scheduled tour arrival, a US$200 cancellation fee will be charged.
|Suppose we really like a certain city and wanted to stay an extra day and juggle the schedule in a minor way.|
It's better not to do so because we issue the air, train, and cruise tickets and hotels in advance. Sometimes it is very difficult to reserve the new tickets and the hotels especially at the peak tour seasons. As far as we know, the hotels have different stars and costs. If you gave a sudden change of the schedule, we should rearrange your unfinished itinerary, the loss of transportation and the hotel or the difference could happen. All these occurred are your responsibility.
