A highlight of this China tour includes a visit to Xi’an, where you'll discover the Terracotta Warriors. These well-preserved, life-size figures of thousands of warriors, horses, and chariots were created in the 3rd century BC to accompany China's first emperor into the afterlife. They are nothing short of spectacular! Of course, no tour to China is complete without a visit to the Great Wall of China, the longest man-made structure in the world. Imagine how you'll feel when you're standing on this famous site, taking in the fascinating history and surrounding mountainous views!

Other highlights of this China tour include visits to the Shanghai Museum, with its collection of 140,000 relics, some dating back 6,000 years, and Beijing’s Forbidden City, the home of China's emperors from 1420 to 1912. You'll enjoy a Peking duck dinner in Beijing, a walking tour of the Muslim quarter in Xi'an, a visit to a silk factory in Shanghai, and more.
