China - Beyond the Great Wall

17 days

From £5,395 £5,595

Activity Level:


China has a remarkable history that spans 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 encountering captivating archaeology along the way. 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.  We see the Great Wall, the iconic 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:

  • Pay a visit to Luoyang – the cradle of Chinese civilisation – where Buddhist temples that date from the 1st century await discovery at the outstanding Longmen Grottoes
  • Wander around the incredible Garden of the Humble Administrator, undoubtedly one of southern China's finest gardens
  • Stand before the Terracotta Warriors, an underground army that can be considered one of the greatest archaeological discoveries of the world
