Small Group Journey


Small Group - China & the Yangtze

There’s nothing to compare to a Yangtze River tour if you’re looking to soak up the atmosphere, the sights and culture of this historic waterway. You’ll be able to take in a three-night cruise aboard the all-balcony Sanctuary Yangzi Explorer, and head off the beaten path to stand atop the Great Wall of China’s perfectly preserved Mutianyu section. The secrets of the incredible Terracotta Warriors will be revealed by an on-site archaeologist and you’ll have a personal encounter with giant panda when you explore their natural habitat. From the wide, flowing Yangtze to the narrow and winding lanes of a traditional hutong, this is how China should be discovered.
