Our China escorted tours has you traveling to Beijing... Shanghai... Hong Kong... and Immersing in over 3,000 thousands of years of history.

Experiences of a lifetime

Ancient relics, modern marvels, incredible moments... Every exquisite temple, every precious icon, every delicate pagoda in China rewards with the richness of a cultural legacy stretching across thousands of years and a vast, emerging land whose splendor staggers the imagination... and every new encounter with this ancient civilization – today the economic engine of the world – evokes a sense of wonder.

Mist-blanketed limestone peaks stand like sentinels along the Li River, greeting all who cruise its placid waters. Meandering across mountains and valleys, the Great Wall invites you to stroll atop stonework that transcends the centuries; climbing to the top of this wonder of the world is an unforgettable experience. Tranquility and a deep spirituality still have their place in this teeming land... find them among the pavilions of Shanghai’s Yu Gardens, before the altar of Beijing’s sublime Temple of Heaven, and in the otherworldly landscapes of the Three Gorges – also home to the greatest modern engineering project on Earth. Secrets of life at both ends of the spectrum are revealed within the inner sanctum of the Forbidden City, where mere mortals dared not go... and inside one of Beijing’s traditional hutongs, where the warmth of a family sharing a vanishing way of life in their private home stirs the soul.  Read Less

Three-night Yangtze River cruise

Days 8, 9 and 10

Cruise the Yangtze River's Three Gorges aboard Yangzi Explorer

Your three-night Yangtze River cruise aboard the recently refurbished Yangzi Explorer takes you through the Yangtze's scenic heart, the Three Gorges. These three adjacent gorges – Qutang Gorge, Wu Gorge and Xiling Gorge – have been celebrated for their natural beauty for centuries, as well as for the many cultural and historic sites found along the Gorges. And you'll get to enjoy all of it from the comfort of the your elegant ship.

The Terra Cotta Warriors

Day 5

A 2,000-year-old army of statues

While digging a well near Xi'an in 1974, a Chinese farmer stumbled upon what turned out to be the 3rd-Century BC burial site of Emperor Qin Shi Huangdi... where archaeologists soon discovered an army of more than 8,000 life-sized terracotta statues of warriors – each with distinctive physical features – that have been guarding their Emperor for over 2,000 years! And with Tauck, you'll get an insider's view of the Terra Cotta Warriors from a leading museum staffer.

When my husband and I returned from our China trip with Tauck, to say that it was the trip of a lifetime would be an understatement.

A wide ranging trip covering the very ancient to the very modern, rural landscapes to ultra-modern cities.

Most Memorable Moment:

Walking the Great Wall.

This trip was fantastic. The weather was great no smog at all, the tour guide was the best I ever had. (This is my 8th Tauck trip) and fellow travelers all got along in great harmony. There is a lot of walking and climbing but no pressure to rush. I did throw away a pair of shoes there as I wore them out. So glad I made this trip.

Most Memorable Moment:

Too many to pick just one. From the Great Wall to the Terra Cotta Warriors to the events on the Yangtze River, to Panda Bears, shopping and the many sights I encountered. Mainland China is clean and the people friendly. Hong Kong hotel memorable. Food was delicious everywhere. Our Tauck Director made this trip fantastic from start to finish! Thank you all!
