|Join us on an excursion to see China's beloved mascot - the Giant Panda, at the Shaanxi Rare Wildlife Rescue and Breeding Centre, located at the foot of the Qingling Mountain range in Louguantai Forest Park north west of Xiâ€™an. Originally established as Louguantai wild animal breeding and protection centre, it was the first dedicated crested ibis breeding centre in China. Later it became a shelter for ill or injured Giant Pandas in the region.|
|Be one of the few thousands of foreign visitors allowed into the Democratic People's Republic of Korea for a fascinating insight into a country of isolation and controversy. Almost untouched by tourism, North Korea is a mysterious place with a bumpy recent history yet offers the inquisitive traveller stunning mountain scenery, halls of treasure, ancient temples and historic monuments.|
|The Tang Dynasty Show is a performance of Changâ€™an music and dance that originated during the time of the illustrious Tang Dynasty. Colourfully choreographed according to various historical records of the ancient arts with a host of singing, dancing and musical instrument playing performers, coupled with simple backdrops and props, this is entertainment that was once fit for a Tang emperor!|
|Datong is an ancient cultural city dating back more than 2,000 years, the regionâ€™s biggest attraction is the UNESCO-listed Yungang Caves. Built more than 1,500 years ago, the 53 caves are a treasure trove of ancient Buddhist art comprising a fine collection of carved-sandstone Buddhist figures. The â€˜Hanging Templeâ€™ also located outside of Datong was constructed some 1,500 years on a precipitous rockface. Literally hugging the cliff, the temple is a total spectacle.|

We have had an incredible time in china. Our guide, Mandy was extremely organized and very nurturing and accommodating to our individual needs. Her knowledge of the various sites we visited, as well as her additional knowledge of the country in general is exceptional.
Marc Peverett ,
I had a lot of fun with a good group of people. Stephanie was excellent and we really appreciated her great manners. Thank you.
Lisa was an excellent guide. Always there to help everyone when needed. Her knowledge was excellent. I was happy with overall experience.
Travis Keen ,
Stephanie is an excellent guide, careful, caring. She ran the tour at an excellent pace and gave very good explanations.
Elizabeth Dhar ,
Everything was so well organised and our tour leader Feng was a complete treasure. I can't stop raving about the time we had in China, I think my friends are getting annoyed. I can't help singing your praises on the go, recommending to everyone. Tibet is a must see.
Going into Tibet made me feel humbled â€“ itâ€™s like the land that time forgot. Such a touching experience and beautiful as well.
I can't believe that it is nearly 6 weeks since we returned from our trip. I have been meaning to email you ever since to tell
you that we had the most wonderful trip - Tibet in particular was a never to be forgotten experience and we are both
determined to go back.
I guess you know that there were 8 of us to start but we lost 5 within the first two days - taken off by the Chinese authorities and put in quarantine because someone on their flights had tested positive for swine flu. We were very lucky to escape.
Your tour guides were as usual fabulous. In particular Pembe in Tibet was unbelievable - what a wonderful man we learnt so much from him. Tibet really made us feel very humble - difficult to put into words how special we found it.
Anyway suffice to say that next year we intend motorbiking in the USA but future trips lined up include a return to Tibet; Vietnam and Cambodia; Peru; Chile and Mongolia so you shall be seeing us again. We cannot speak highly enough of On the Go!!
Many thanks for all your help and good advice.
