Today's China symbolizes not only the new wealth and innovation, but also the newly unleashed creativity, set confidently in the millennia of history, traditions and the cultural refinement of the Middle Kingdom. It offers a multitude of visual and cultural experiences: from the futuristic skylines of Shanghai and Beijing to the mystical beauty of the Li and the Yangtze Rivers, from the archeological marvels of the Terracotta Army to the modern cultural phenomena of dance, theatre and the martial arts, and from the past architectural glories of the Great Wall, the Bund and the Forbidden City to the space age modernity. China remains the ultimate synthesis of East and West, the old and the new, where ancient traditions blend with the modern lifestyles, and skyscrapers rise above ancient temples. It is a place of profound culture and graceful beauty: Chinese Opera, traditional tea ceremonies, the martial arts, the eight culinary traditions cultivated uniquely in each city and region which teem with their own identity as an energetic variation on the great theme of Chinese civilization, while all expressing similar values and ideas. Remarkably diverse in every aspect, China boasts a wide variety of cultures, peoples and landscapes.

With the Gems of China Tour, we'll embark on a luxurious journey through this exotic land, full of wonders. As we experience one of the most fascinating places on the planet today, we'll explore the world of ancient Chinese cultural traditions, see dizzying, exhilarating cityscapes, tranquil palaces and fog-wrapped peaks which bring to mind Taoist philosophers and also some of the most dramatic scenery in existence. Each day will bring new highlights and new discoveries.


It was very well organized and all our tour guides were excellent with emphasis on the ones we had in Beijing, Guilin and Shanghai.  I cannot imagine those girls being any better than they were.  No tour is complete without great travelling companions and the women on this tour with wonderful to travel with.  We had an awful lot of fun.  The lunch we had in Beijing was excellent.  The restaurant was beautiful as well and of course, the Peking Duck was unsurpassed. - Charlotte from Nova Scotia

An outstanding adventure. China has so much influence on our world, it was important to learn something about them. The tour was fascinating and well designed. Hotels were top notch. The group was great, and I just can't say enough about Marlene. She was so friendly, caring and helpful. A wonderful young woman. - Paddi from Alberta

This was my 1st tour with Sights + Soul. It was a wonderful experience. I know we saw + experienced so much in China and the trip was care-free. Every detail was planned and the people were so friendly. - Vera from Illinois

I had a wonderful time sharing adventures in history and culture with women who became instant friends. I instantly felt welcome and included. This upscale tour company provides fantastic experiences in safe, welcoming environment, and I highly recommend it to anyone traveling alone or with a friend. - Eva from Massachusetts

Why travel with other women?
Many women do not have families or compatible friends who wish to travel. When going on a main-stream tour, women often find that most activities are geared towards couples and quite often they feel left out. Singles' tours are not always what women are looking for. If you do not have a traveling companion, there is also the issue of the expensive "single supplement", sometimes as much as 50 or even 100 percent of the tour cost. By going on women-only tours, women can easily avoid paying for the single supplement by sharing a room with another woman traveler.
