Guangzhou (once known as Canton) is the capital of Guangdong Province, China's third largest city, and one of the most prosperous cities in China.
Guangzhou doesn't have a major tourist draw unlike "tourist cities" in China (Xi'an has Terracotta Warriors, Guilin has scenery, Chengdu has pandas, etc.). Many foreigners only travel to Guangzhou for the Canton Fair, but Guangzhou is also worthy of a visit for tourism... There is a lot to recommend: tasty Cantonese food, unique Lingnan (Southern China) culture, legendary history, awesome super-modern skylines, the energy of booming development, and more.
Our Guangzhou tours will enable you to discover the old and new of traditional and prosperous Guangzhou city. We have also designed tours to nearby areas such as Kaiping, Foshan, Chaozhou and Shantou, etc. Each tour can be tailored to match your dates and interests.

Camping on the Great Wall
Did a hike of the wild Great Wall, which was an amazing experience. Highly recommended if you want to get away from the crowds. Many thanks to my guide, Oliver, who was first class. Hiked, climbed, had a bbq and camped on the Jiankou section of the Great Wall. The views were serene. An unforgettable memory! more
