Special Notes for a Seat-in-a-Coach Tour

A seat-in-a-coach tour minimizes costs because expenses are shared among a larger group.

Seat-in-a-coach tours are operated by local business partners of China Highlights around China. China Highlights chooses business partners by strict quality standards. The service of a seat-in-a-coach tour may be not as considerate as that of a private tour sometimes.

Visiting one or two shops or markets is always included in a seat-in-a-coach tour, but you don’t have to buy anything.

A seat-in-a-coach tour usually consists of more than 5 people with a maximum of 16. You will have a local guide and use a 22-seat air-conditioned coach. We will pick you up at some appointed hotels at the appointed time. In contrast a private tour provides a private car and guide. And we will pick you up at your hotel.
