How it works

1. Make an inquiry, stating your ideal trip ideas

Whenever you make an inquiry with your ideal trip ideas, you will be put in contact with a specialist who has been exploring the area deeply; some even traveled with their own customers and so have genuine feedback. We have strong connections to our destinations thanks to being based in Southern China, Asia.

2. Plan and refine

Your specialist will first talk with you on the phone or exchange emails to better understand your interests and specific requests. They will then craft a unique itinerary proposal which can be refined until you are satisfied and ready to book.

3. Book with a guarantee

Book with your specialist once you are satisfied and pay the deposit. Your specialist will confirm all the services and logistics right after the booking. Any change is possible after you have booked. A week before your travel, your specialist will offer a detailed trip reminder for your coming trip.

Find out what sets us apart and travel with confidence.

4. Enjoy your trip and stay in touch

You are in the safe hands of our expert local guides as soon as you step off the plane. Your specialist will continue to support you 24 x 7 throughout your trip. You can also speak to our customer care over the phone on a specific number at any time.

Creating beautiful journeys since 1998

It was in 1998 that Victor Shu started the business (China Highlights), as a way to help individual westerners discover real China. That is after he, as a tour guide for 4 years, had been fed up with guiding foreign travelers in a group, merely scratching the surface of China along tourist traps.

We initiated a new way of travel in China: private tours, created to match your own interests and budget. Today, this desire to help people gain unique experiences is increasing and extending to other Asian countries with the same excellent service.
