The itinerary is the best and extremely comprehensive. The tour leader is wonderful and the best I've ever experienced.

This trip was extremely beautiful. Spending time visiting homes of local families and traveling through the Yangtze and Li Rivers were the highlights of our trip. Accommodations were better than expected, especially our upgrade on the Victoria Cruise. Thank you for such a memorable time.

This was an extraordinary trip combining the usual tourist attractions with side trips to the homes of Chinese people and into the countryside as well as demonstrations of local industries, music and traditional Chinese art. Our small group was congenial and our guides were first rate. I not only learned much about China but, more importantly, have come to a greater understanding of its history and people. Many thanks to all who contributed to this wonderful experience.

Road Scholar trip to China was the trip of a lifetime. To truly see a country undergoing massive change that due to its huge population will attract attention in the entire world. And they are eager to learn about America....very welcoming and loving older people. I was stopped many times to take my picture and on the Great Wall 2 Chinese young woman each took my arm and laughly helped me to the top of the wall hill.....
