To fully enjoy your China tour experience, one must choose a company that offers well-tested tour itineraries and the highest level of service. Access China Tours (ACT) is such a tour company that specializes in China and has been persistently striving for total customer satisfaction. See our testimonials section to see what our clients say.
Carefully Designed Itineraries
Access China Tours creates its own itineraries. What distinguishes ACT is the fact that our travel itineraries to China are unique, more meaningful, logistically sound and well-tested. We have year-round tour development staff in China to constantly check service facilities, destinations, sites, transport, and tour guide training. In 2014 our luxury package tours cover a wide range of destinations and each tour has its own program focus.
Reliable Pre-Departure Service
With our head office in Vancouver, BC and our marketing office in Denver, Colorado, ACT is dedicated to serving the North American market. Simply dial our toll free number and you will have all your questions answered by our knowledgeable and experienced staff. We send our clients two information packets before trip departure, each containing important up-to-date tour information. Many clients have used one simple word to describe Access China Tours’ pre-departure service: “superb”.
For all of the 2014 luxury tours, the departures are guaranteed with as few as two registered travelers. Tours with 6 or more travelers will be escorted by a tour manager throughout mainland China. Therefore, travelers can be assured that when booking a trip with ACT, their long-planned China dream vacation will never be canceled due to so-called “insufficient booking”. We continually strive to achieve the highest quality of service regardless of the group size.
Besides guaranteed departure for smaller groups, we limit our tour size to a maximum of sixteen travelers. We do this for very important reasons.
Firstly, with a small group, our staff and guide can get acquainted with each and every traveler and serve them personally. Secondly, it allows you to get to know your fellow travelers and to make new friends. Thirdly, unlike large groups, it is more likely for small groups to join unexpected local events for a special experience and to be flexible enough to adjust daily schedules. Lastly, our small group policy was established in consideration of preserving local character, local ecology and cultures, causing as little environmental impact as possible.
Most Inclusive Prices
Our “Land” prices include all Chinese domestic flights and airport taxes, costs for ground transport, luxury or best available accommodations, courier fees, all sightseeing admissions and excursions, cultural activities and most of the meals. Almost everything is included in our tour prices. There are no hidden fees such as taxes or fuel surcharges.
Finest Tour Managers and Guides
Our English-fluent tour managers and local tour guides are experienced professionals who truly love what they do. They enjoy helping our clients understand local history, culture and customs. We take great pride in our hard-working field staff. Clients’ encouraging feedback has strengthened our commitment to offering continuous excellence in service.
Unmatched Regional Dining
Included in the price of your tour programs are all breakfasts and most lunches and dinners. Breakfasts are generally of American style, lunches feature local cuisine, and dinners are in elite characteristic restaurants emphasizing regional specialties. Peking Duck Banquet, Imperial Cuisine Dinner, Sichuan Cooking and Shanghai Cuisine Banquet are just some of ACT’s unique and character meals clients enjoy during their trip. One or two western dinners may be arranged in your elegant hotel restaurants.
No Limit on Soft Drinks and Beer
Access China Tours sets no limit on the number of soft drinks and beer one can have during meals. When the weather is humid and the cuisine spicy, you will need more than one drink to cool off. This policy has removed another “hidden extra” that many other tour operators charge clients.
Airport to Airport Service
When you fly from one city to another in China, our local guide will help you check in, get the boarding pass and see you off at the airport. You are always met by our guide at the next destination.
