Education & Culture Tours are designed to explore in-depth subjects on Chinese culture, history, archaeology, social customs, wildlife preservation or other aspects of Chinese civilization.

Access China Tours works closely with prominent North America- based sinologists, professors and writers and other China specialists who are often called upon to lead special interest tours to China, often historically referred to as the Middle Kingdom. In addition to cultural immersions and direct interactions with local people, you will have a chance to enjoy the lectures given by your scholar tour leaders as well as by local experts.

When you travel with us on an Education & Culture Tour, you benefit from our extensive network of resources in China, from behind-the-scenes access at museums and galleries, to visiting the best universities and meetings with famous professors, artists and ordinary citizens. You can rest assured that our Education & Culture Tours will bring you experiences and insights that are both unique and memorable. We are confident that Access China Tours can make your organization’s travel program to China a truly enriching educational experience and a memorable cultural exploration.

In previous years, Access China Tours designed and operated tours such as the “Chinese Culture Study Tour” for Minnesota State University, “Three Kingdoms Research Tour” for St. Lawrence University, “China Health & Environment Study Tour” for Asian Studies Initiative Study Group at SLU, and “Daoism and Chinese Culture” for Montclair Kimberly Academy.
