Some people do not want a stock or packaged general China Tour. Many are asking for tours to places they want to specifically go to or fit their personal interests and are unable to find a tour that fits their needs. These are Custom Group or Private tours for just individuals. Custom Group Tours usually fit specific interests like Garden, Historical, Nature, Ecological, Cultural, Art, Food, Birding hiking or other interests etc. Some tour companies claim to put together custom tours but will have stock itineraries based on the cost per day broken down into 3, 4 or 5 star hotel and sightseeing tours. They have these in their computers and simply patch them together by city which takes only a few minutes and call that a Custom Tour. A real custom tour whether it is for individuals or a group with specific interests takes hours of work and personal first hand knowledge of the country. We listen to what the client wants and their personal interests and then plan the tour accordingly. I have traveled China for over 25 years and 50+ trips working with local Travel Services inspecting hotels, seeing all the sights all across China first hand and am connected with local Chinese partners with local volume contracts with hotels for the best prices.
