One of the things you want to do when you go to China is to meet the Chinese people so you learn more about the culture. Group Tours unfortunately seldom give you the opportunity to meet people. In China it is not uncommon to be allowed into a Chinese home to visit with them over tea. Chinese hospitality is fantastic. Can you imagine someone coming to your door and asking if they can come in and have tea and meet you. In China that is possible and not just set up for tourists. The photos above are during a visit to a Tibetan home in Sichuan province about 300 miles from Chengdu. We actually had lunch with the family, played with the children and learned so much about their every day life. This is possible in China during a private custom tour which we have been doing for 20 years. I have dined with farmers, city people, mountain people, Muslims, and many of the minority people’s homes through out China. These experiences are ones that you will remember for many years getting to know people and their families. Tours to China are my business; but my real love is getting to know more and more Chinese people as friends. I have four people in China that I have known for 18 years more or less and am following their lives year to year. My youngest one is now 17 and will be graduating from high school and hopefully going on to college. Let me plan a China Tour for you.
