About China Highlights
Since 1998 we've guided everyone ranging from US presidents, Australian Geographic and retired backpackers. Our goal is to create unique trips that take you off-the-beaten path, helping you discover China in a more authentic way. Our motto: "Discovery Your Way!"
Everything was so smooth and easy with them- they knew our flight had been changed (we traveled during a low season) even before we did! Everybody in our family enjoyed the stunning scenery and breathtaking/scary glass sky walks- recommend this trip for adults and families alike. Having a tour guide is best- we would have wasted a lot of time with logistics otherwise. Ann knew the best times and methods of getting around everywhere and made good recommendations on everything from food to timing. We especially appreciated that we never felt like we were being fleeced because we were tourists- nobody steering us toward overpriced junk souvenirs. We also especially enjoyed Ann’s sharing of local culture, stories, and songs (bonus: Ann has a beautiful singing voice!) more
We’ll pick you up in the morning from your hotel, and drive to the Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon Scenic Area. If your hotel is in Zhangjiajie city, it will take 1½ hours to the grand canyon. If your hotel is near the national park, it will take only 30 minutes.
Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon is famous for the Glass Bridge. The bridge stretches between two dramatic cliffs - 380 meters long and 300 meters above the canyon floor. When walking on the bridge you can see all the way down to the bottom of the canyon through the glass bridge.
Your personal tour guide will take photos and video for you, with which you can show off your courage to the whole world!
After lunch at a local restaurant, we will drive to Baofeng Lake.
Baofeng Lake is in a basin in the middle of this mountainous area. A shuttle bus will take you from the entrance to the pier.
At the lake we’ll take you on a wooden boat for a 30-minute boat ride. It is a leisurely experience as you boat on the clear water, see the hills of various shapes, and enjoy entertainment by the local minority people as they sing their traditional songs.
After the tour we will escort you back to your hotel.Baofeng Lake
We Will Take Care of the Tickets Booking!
The glass bridge started a trial operation on August 20, 2016. During its trial operation, no more than 8,000 visitors each day have the opportunity to walk on the bridge. Entrance tickets can only be obtained by reservation.
As tickets are limited, individual booking is extremely unlikely to be successful. We, as a travel agency, have first priority for ticket purchase. We suggest you book this tour at least 10 days in advance.
What to Bear in Mind:
- The glass bridge is likely to close in severe weather.
- Only a maximum of 600 people are allowed on the bridge at one time.
- Visitors can only bring wallets and mobiles with suitable cases on the bridge.
- Do not attempt it if you have heart problems, high blood pressure, or a fear of heights.
- Don't behave dangerously. Don't run on the bridge, lean over the rail, etc.

Customizing the Tour - according to your needs
This tour is very flexible. You can alter the itinerary, extend or shorten it to suit your price, interest, and schedule.
You can extend it with an extra day to Fenghuang Ancient Town, where the daytime is picturesque and charming, and the night is lively; or with an extra day to the city of Changsha; or add one more day to discover more at the National Park (the entrance ticket is valid three days). If your time is limited, shortening by one day can also be arranged.
For a multi-city tour, we would recommend combining Zhangjiajie with Guilin (mountain and water scenery), Yangtze River cruise (relaxing cruise on the Yangtze River) or Guizhou (ethnic minority villages). Feel free to tell us your interest and idea.
Your personal tour guide will accompany you throughout the tour, providing guidance and local knowledge. He/she will be ready and willing to help you solve any problems that may arise while on the tour.
