Customizing Your Own Private China Tour

A private China tour is a good idea if you don't want to travel with a big group. Customizing your own trip takes a little more effort and planning on your part than if you were choosing an organized tour, but it also gives you more flexibility.

An easy way to plan your private tour is by choosing any of the operator's itineraries that have already been set up for group tours and use that as a base to customize your own private tour.

Most arrangements are organized before you leave home so you don't spend precious time trying to get things set up.

  • You choose when your tour starts and when it ends, as well as how long you spend at each place

  • You choose your hotels, you might want to have a hotel that has a swimming pool for example, or a hotel that is located near the shopping areas

  • You have your own car/bus with driver and a guide at each of the places you will visit. That gives you the flexibility to plan your tour times and meals around your own schedule

  • When traveling in China with kids, plan to add different activities for the children, for example, add a boat ride here, a bike trip there. Note that the China tour operator might not set this up for you, but with the help of your private tour guide and your driver you pretty much have it covered. Check the "Where to Go" section of this website for ideas on all sorts of stuff to do with little ones

  • It is very likely that you will get a different tour guide at each of the different places you will be visiting. The operators might agree to provide one guide for your entire trip if your group is over 10-12 people or you can request one that will accompany you on the whole trip and pay a bit more

  • The price of your tour will vary depending on the number of people in your private group, the more people in your friends and family group the cheaper it will be

  • Consider what is offered and included in your tour. Here are some tips on choosing a China Tour Operator

And here are some ideas to start tailoring your own private China tour. With the help of Morgen from China Culture Tour we have put together a sample of China Guided Tours which you can use as an example to tailor your own private tour. We are adding some sample itineraries of different durations, a 13-day itinerary for a first trip to China for example, or a six-day itinerary in the countryside for the active family, including biking, hiking, rafting, cooking lessons, etc. If you have any inquiries regarding private China tours for your group/family, you can contact Morgen here:
