From the Terracotta Warriors of Xi’an and the bright lights of Tokyo to mouth-watering South Korean cuisine; discover the best of China and Japan with a tour

China and Japan boast legendary landmarks and layer upon layer of history and culture, seamlessly juxtaposing timeless tradition with modern sensibilities. Whether it’s your first visit to one or both countries, or you’re returning for a deeper cultural experience, a small escorted tour with a local guide is the best way to immerse yourself in these rich melting pots. Our tours feature iconic notable sights including the Great Wall and the Forbidden City in Beijing and the Terracotta Warriors of Xi’an, as well as the vibrant and highly populated city of Tokyo in Japan. Those who wish to capture the moment and create memories that will last forever can even join a one-off small group photography tour with award-winning travel photographer, Neil Buchan-Grant. For a longer stay, some of our tours can be combined with other regional tours like Japan and South Korea.
