17 days

From £5,495 £5,995

Activity Level:


China has a remarkable history, spanning back over 10,000 years and remnants of its glorious past can be seen at every turn. We journey from Beijing to Shanghai, through vast and varied landscapes and archaeology. From Buddhist temples to the gargantuan monuments of imperial ambition, to lesser-known prehistoric settlements, this is the story of China through the ages. The great sites we see are put into their historical context: the Great Wall, Terracotta Warriors and Ming Tombs, not just as grand relics but as products of the time people and places that led to their creation.

Tour highlights:

  • View the underground army of the life-sized Terracotta Warriors - one of the greatest archaeological discoveries in the world
  • Luoyang - the cradle of Chinese civilisation - home to Buddhist temples from the 1st century at the outstanding Longmen Grottoes
  • Explore the incredible Garden of the Humble Administrator - one of Southern China’s finest gardens
  • Visit the fascinating Shanghai Propaganda Poster Art Centre, which exhibits posters from the Maoist period of communist China
