Travel with experts to the
Far East

The most ancient of the world’s civilizations, China awes travelers with its range—from serene villages to throbbing Shanghai, ancient ruins to cutting-edge-modern skylines. Our expertise there reaches back decades, to the days when the country opened its long-isolated hinterlands. We’ve explored ultra-remote areas and crafted new approaches to classic destinations. From these explorations arise a number of itineraries, all featuring our trademark imaginative planning, superb guiding, and top accommodations.

Custom China GeoEx trip

Having gone there for decades, we like to think of ourselves as old China hands. And yet we are constantly rediscovering this vast country. If you yearn to see the well-known sights—Beijing’s Forbidden City, the Great Wall, Xian’s Terracotta Warriors, the limestone karsts of magic Guilin—we'll help you navigate them without the crowds and in the company of connoisseurs. You may also enjoy branching out from those classics to marvelous places like Kunming, nicknamed the City of Eternal Spring, and Yunnan Province’s spectacular gorges and snow ranges. Prefer to take in your scenery by boat? We offer river cruising along the Yangtze and the Yulong.

The list goes on: You could traipse into the high Tibetan borderlands, visit panda preserves, investigate China’s millennial tea culture, trace the rise and fall of dynasties, or dally in remote tribal villages. The possibilities are endless, as befits this huge, diverse, and massively intriguing country.
