“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step." This wise phrase from Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu sums up Monograms' philosophy. But we believe the first step should be easy and a no-brainer. That's why we handle all your vacation details for you. We make it where your “journey of a thousand miles" only requires you to take the first step—to contact us! On this 13-day vacation, we've arranged your hotel reservations, daily breakfast (plus five lunches), private guided sightseeing, and transfers from/to your hotels to/from the airports for all intra-vacation flights. To make your journey as comfortable and easy as possible, we also offer the services of a Local Host®, someone who will answer questions, offer suggestions, and help ensure your vacation runs smoothly in every city: Beijing, Chengdu, Xi'an, Guilin, and Shanghai. Your Local Host will welcome you with a smile when you arrive, and will give you a set of materials to help you feel settled and familiar with each city and to help you personalize your vacation.

Your vacation begins the moment you arrive in Beijing, as we can pick you up at the airport and take you to your selected hotel. While in Beijing, we have arranged for you to have two private sightseeing tours with local experts. We'll take you to the Great Wall, a must-see when you are in China. You'll have the opportunity to walk along the wall and see amazing views, as well as capture some fantastic photos. The next day, visit Tian'anmen Square, the largest public square in the world, and the Forbidden City's Imperial Palace, once the home of China's great emperors. Your guide will share inside stories and the history of these attractions, not to mention what life is like in Beijing. From Beijing, fly to Chengdu. A full-day private guided excursions brings you to see the Leshan Giant Buddha, the world's tallest stone Buddha at 233 feet. View the Buddha from a cruise on the river and from several vantage points on land. You'll also visit the Giant Panda Research Base for a chance to see these beautiful animals up close!

Next, fly to Xi'an in central China. Here, your private guided tour includes a visit to the Dayan Pagoda, built in 652 AD. Of course, you cannot come to Xi'an—or even China, for that matter—without seeing the Terracotta Warriors, an archaeological treasure trove. Then, you're off to the most scenic part of your vacation. In Guilin, one of China's most beautiful areas, we've arranged for private guided sightseeing of its highlights. The highpoint will undoubtedly be a cruise on the tranquil Li River, where you will leave modern civilization behind as you pass by rice paddies, fishermen on bamboo rafts, and water buffalo grazing in the river.

Finally, fly to Shanghai, where your Local Host will be waiting for you. We've arranged two half-day private guided tours with a local expert including the Yu Yuan Gardens, classical Chinese gardens dating back to the Ming Dynasty and a walking tour of the former French Concession, where remnants of a bygone era remain including the famous Art Deco Cathay Theatre. We've also included a traditional dim sum feast and free time in Shanghai for you to explore on your own (with the support of your Local Host, of course).

We know that sometimes experiencing the culture hands-on is the best way to learn. That's why we've included a noodle-making demonstration in Xi'an, as well as a visit to a local tea farm in Guilin for a hands-on demonstration of the tea-making process, followed by a tea ceremony. And that's not all. Monograms has arranged VIP access for your inside visits. That means that rather than standing in long lines, we give you VIP access at the key sights. You're traveling all the way to China, so why waste your time standing in line when you can be enjoying yourself at the sights?

Between the sightseeing we've arranged, the transportation and meals we've included, the hotels we've booked, and the attractions we've included, all you have to do is take that first step and call us—and then enjoy yourself on vacation! We've taken care of all the rest—the other "thousand miles." With the time saved and the comfort of knowing you will have a Local Host with you throughout your vacation, you've got yourself a vacation that even Lao Tzu could not resist!

Private guided sightseeing with your Local Host as outlined in day-by-day itinerary; inside visits, and special features are shown in UPPERCASE
