Combine the very best of China with a trip into Tibet.

Learn the secrets of China's history as you discover Beijing, walk across the Great Wall, explore the Forbidden City and greet the first Emperor's Terracotta Army. Contrast this with the spiritual city of Lhasa in Tibet, before hurtling at high speed through the Tibetan countryside aboard the highest railway in the world, to Xining.

Please note: Due to the high altitudes in Tibet, this tour is not suitable for guests with heart or respiratory problems.
