What days do you have departure?

Most of our tours start from Beijing and then they go to different cities. Currently we have 2 weekly departures for all the tours on Saturdays and Wednesdays.

How many people are in the small group?

The number of passengers in each small group might be varying in different destinations. However we assure you that there are no more than 20 people in the small groups. On Average, small groups usually consist of 10-12 passengers in Beijing, and 5-6 passengers in other cities which make it more convenient to hang around.

Do you guarantee your departure dates?

Yes! We offer 100% guaranteed departure on all of our tours even with only 1 Passenger. You can book your tour and make sure it will be departed on time.

Is there any Hotel included in this tour?

Yes! All of our tours include 4 and 5 Star top hotels with breakfast. For more information about your hotels in different cities, please refer to the day by day itinerary.

What is Hotel single supplement fee?

The base price for hotel rooms is based on 2 passengers in a room. For solo travelers who want to have a private hotel room, there is an extra charge that covers the room fee and it is called single supplement. It is not twice the normal price so it is still beneficial for solo travelers who want their privacy in their hotel room.

Why the Single Supplement fee is mandatory?

Most of the hotel rooms designed for 2 passengers in a room which breaks the cost. China Ways tour prices are also calculated based on 2 passengers which is the optimum price. Solo travelers need to pay the single supplement fee upon their booking so that we could confirm their hotel.

Can I share my room with other passengers to save the Single supplement fee?

Yes you can. However we do not guarantee that there are passengers in your small group who are willing to share their room. We try our best to match solo travelers who are willing to share their hotel room and dismiss the extra fee. If it happened, we will refund the single supplement fee to the passengers after the tour.

Is it possible to customize your tours?

Absolutely! We need to know about your Arrival/Departure dates and your desired plan, and we will customize your itinerary. We usually try to match you with one of the small groups in our destinations, so that you could get a better deal. However, in some cases you might have a combination of Small Group and Private tour.

Can I go on a tour in reverse order?

In that case, we suggest you to arrange your trip in a way that you join the small group in one of the cities (Usually Beijing) so that you could get a better price. Even if you are going to have a private tour in your destinations, we are going to provide you the Airport transfer, English speaking tour guide, and all other tour inclusions.

Is it possible to book part of a tour?

Yes! Either it is just 1 day in a tour, or a few days, you should let us know and we will plan to have you on board. For example if a tour goes to Beijing, Xian, Shanghai and Hong Kong and you are looking at tours from Shanghai to Hong Kong, you can let us know your trip days and we will arrange the rest.

Is there any pickup service included in this tour?

Yes! All of our tours include Airport pickup and Hotel transfer service. We will pick you up based on your timing and that is why we need to know your flight details in advance. Upon your arrival to China, our English speaking tour guides will be waiting for you holding a “China Ways” Placard.

Is there any drop-off service included in this tour?

No! Currently none of our tours include drop off service. Our passengers will be going to the different destinations with a very different timing and it is easier and more convenient for them to find their way to their next destination on their own. However, we will gladly help and provide this service upon request for a reasonable price, if you needed us to do so.

Do you still offer Pickup if I arrive earlier or later than departure date?

Yes. Airport pickup and Hotel transfer are included in all the tout packages and we always pick you up without any extra charge if you arrive earlier or later. Please note that we only provide Hotel transfer to the passengers who stay in our Partner hotel with other group members.

What happens if I arrive earlier than tour departure?

No worries! The first day of our tours is dedicated to pick up passengers from Airport and transfer them to the hotel (As people are coming from different countries and the timings are different). If you arrive earlier, we can help you to book and extra night in the same hotel, so that you could checking and have a free day before your tour starts. We offer the most affordable hotel prices to our customers as we have contract with our hotel partners.

What happens if I arrive later than tour departure?

If you arrive later than the first day, you probably miss the first day with group. However, we can slightly modify your itinerary so that you join the same group on the other days, and then probably makeup the day that you missed at the end as a private day tour. If you need to leave the first city with the group, you will miss that day and there is no refund for that part.

What class service is booked on the flight / bullet trains?

By default, we will book economy seats on flights and bullet trains (Also called Second class). However, we could upgrade the rickets to First class or Business for the extra charge.

What is the baggage rule for flights / Bullet trains?

All Bullet trains usually have enough space to carry as many baggage as you want. Passengers can put their luggage in their cabin. Flight from Xian to Guilin usually allows 15 Kg bag and 7 Kg personal item. Flight from Guilin to Shanghai allows 20 Kg bag and 7 Kg personal items.

Is there any shopping opportunities?

Shopping is one of the fun parts in the vacation. So we included some shopping opportunities in the tours. The shopping stops are to the most famous places in China that offers unique Chinese products such as Silk, Jade, and peal and Malls. There is NO presentation, NO mandatory shopping, and NO long stops at the shopping places and we usually included them in tours in a way that in interested passengers would have other options.

What kind of documents do you need for booking?

There is no document necessary at the time of booking. You can just choose your desired date, and book the tour. After you confirmed your booking, we are going to need Passport copies from all the passengers (For Hotel and Transport purposes) and also Arrival flight details to arrange the pickup service. After the booking you have some time to book your flight and send us the details.

Do I need a Chinese Visa if I stay less that 6 Days (144 Hours)?

It depends on the country of citizenship. According to the Chinese rules, citizens of 53 countries, are allowed to Enter China from Beijing or Shanghai without a Visa – and then apply for the 144-Hour Visa free policy at the airport. In that case, they don’t need to get a Visa. For more information please refer to 144-Hour Visa free policy.

Yes! We are a registered travel agency in China (YIYA TRAVEL INTERNATIONAL) and we provide Invitation Letter to the passengers upon their request. It will cost 5$/Passenger.
