What inspires you and your physical condition?

There are different ways to travel. Your interests matter. Like a trip to Guilin, we can customize you very relaxing sightseeing tour combining leisure travel pace and relaxing transport; hiking/biking trips that requires medium or high physical level, or adventure tours with some challenge activities.

 

When do you want to travel?

Once you decided where to go and what to see, the next plan is for the best season as the weather conditions and environment is always changing. For most of the places, May to October is the best time to travel. However, in terms of the wildlife watching, hiking trips, skiing experience, harvest time, there is certain time to travel. Our experienced travel advisors will give full guidance for your trip planning.

  • Our trip began in Hohhot where we were greeted by our fabulous guide David and driver Mr Fan, who was friendly and funny, taking pictures and encouraging car pool karaoke! We visited the grasslands, desert, Genghis Khan’s Mausoleum and a volcano. David was very knowledgeable about Mongolian and Chinese history along with all the local traditions and experiences! He was also very friendly with excellent English and a good sense of humour. We ate like Khans over the three days in local restaurants where David ensured our vegetarian requirements were met much to the dismay of the restaurant staff who could not believe there was no mutton on the menu (they tell me Mongolian mutton is delicious!) The yurt we stayed in was concrete when we were expecting a tent however this did not diminish the whole Mongolian experience. The site is in a beautiful location and definitely worth the view on horseback. Without a doubt one of our lasting memories of this trip will be the fusion of modern dance music and Mongolian throat singing that we all enjoyed raving to! Inner Mongolia autonomous region is definitely a ‘must’ destination for any discerning traveler.

  • a memorable experience with Etripchina "We arranged 10 days tour of Beijing Shanghai Chengdu and Yangtze river in China. Tina was very helpful in suggesting trips. All of the guides,drivers were perfect. The Yangtze Cruise was a highlight of our tour. The scenery on Yangtze river was awesome. My favorite place on the boat was my balcony. I had tea on my cozy balcony every morning. It was a memorable experience."

The tour guides are fluent in english and they have guides that speaks spanish as well. My wife and I had a great experience in China, even though you struggle with the language."

  • Great company! "We have bought two day tours, Li River/Yangshuo and Longji Rice Terraces/Mountain Village. Excellent service! At first we exchanged emails and phone calls with Tina, a very kind professional, she organized everything. We had private tours and opted for a guide driver, in our case, Jiang Linfeng. He was very professional and helped us organize the schedule for the tours and even helped us get tickets for some other attractions, not included in the tours we paid, with a better/cheaper price. Everything was perfect! We did enjoy the tours and Guilin is a fantastic place, indeed! I do recommend EtripChina and the tours we did. Thank you, Tina and Jiang Linfeng!"

  • For our holiday to China, (family of 4)in May 2018, I decided to book all our sightseeing tours, airport transfers and internal train tickets via Etrip China. At first, I was a little apprehensive, as my only contact with them was through their website, however, I gained some confidence due to the excellent reviews on TripAdvisor. At the end of our holiday, I am happy to say, that we are extremely happy with the Etrip China Team for their excellent service. The vehicles used were spacious and comfortable. The drivers were always punctual, professional and courteous. The guides were knowledgeable, helpful and proficient in English. In short, I would strongly recommend, Etrip China, to anyone looking for an all inclusive private tour in China, at a good value price.

  • Tibet Trip Lhasa to EBC "We had a wonderful experience in our trip to Tibet in July, we took the tour from Lhasa to Mount Everest base camp. Overall, the tour was well organized and the accommodation was also pretty good. We did experience a few difficulties with our permits and plane tickets, but Tina (the lady from etrip who assited us on organizing the trip) was very professional and did her best to help us take quick decisions and overcome such difficulties so that we could enjoy our trip. Going to Tibet can be a challenging experience due to the high altitude and the long distances one must endure; however the landscapes and buddhist monasteries and temples make it all worth it!"

  • Etripchina is so much more than day tours in Guilin! "I highly recommend this company to handle your travel needs in China. I have used them myself and Tina has helped me organise an intense two week itinerary that took us all the way from Beijing to Xi'an to Chengdu (incl Leshan and Jiajiang) to Guilin to Yangshuo to Hangzhou to Shanghai (incl Suzhou and Tongli). Excellent guides, excellent hotels, the itinerary flowed like clockwork. Watched 7 performances along the way (Beijing Opera, Golden Mask in Beijing, Huaqing Palace in Xi'an, Sichuan Opera in Chengdu, Enduring Memories in Yangshuo, Impressions in Hangzhou and ERA in Shanghai. I forgot to add that the whole trip cost me under half of what other agencies were asking me. Amazing experience, all thanks to Tina and her staff!"

  • Fantastic journey of discovery "This is my 1st time booking with ETripChina. From start to end, the manager Niki Zhu, has been constantly updating the itinerary until we are fully satisfied. She even made a call to ask on how we are doing. I would definitely recommend them to anybody who would like to arrange a personalise trip with them. Good job ETripChina. Keep up your good work."
