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.

Amazing Beijing experience with China Highlights and our guide Ivy!
China highlights (Alisa) made an itinerary for us that was perfect; from the type of hotels we prefer to all the sights you need to see, along with some special extra experiences that were perfect for our travel wishes. They also helped with am COVID changes before and throughout the entire trip, making it go very smoothly. The guide they arranged for our experiences is Ivy. Ivy made sure we were comfortable and enjoying ourselves from the moment we arrived. She took care of every detail for our comfort, any needed covid tests, and educated us about each location we visited. more
