This is a privately organized trip. Participants take their own responsibility in participating. Each Participant is liable for him or her self and for his or her actions. The group therefore consists of a number of individual tourist who travel together. Individuals wishing to take part in this group, that is to become a participant can only do so, if they accept the conditions mentioned above and with it the exclusion of liability of the trip organizer and will confirm this in written before the trip starts.
Arrival and departure
Participants organize their journey to the starting point and from the end of the trip individually.
In order to get to the starting point on time, departure from Europe or America should happen at least a day before the trip starts, due to the time difference. Time is saved on the other hand on the return flight.
Hotels will be of varying standard, depending on where we are.
In Chengdu as well as in Nanning the level of comfort is comparable to european standard. In the countryside the situation is different. Especially the sanitary area can be disappointing at times. But there are often very pleasant surprises as well, for example herbal footbaths, good massages, hot springs, etc.
We will allways try to reserve the best and most appropriate accomodation for each area. Patience and flexibility will help participants enjoy the trip to the maximum.
All meals are included in the fee as long as they are taken with the group.
In TCM, food is regarded as the best of all medicine. Traditional cooking of food for health is called Yao Shan.
Participants will be able to enjoy this tradition in different forms, on several occasions.
We consider the choice of our vehicle and driver to be one of the most important parts of preparing the trip. Our vehicles are of very good quality and are driven by very experienced drivers.
