Intrepid China Tours

Intrepid China Vacations

Intrepid Travel offers low-priced, small-group adventure tours that show you the world as it really is, immersing you in Chinese culture. Some itineraries fall into the "adventure" category because of the off-the-beaten-path destinations visited, and others are considered to be adventurous because of included activities like hiking, biking, kayaking or camping.

Find a China Tour

Like other operators, Intrepid includes accommodations, transportation, some meals and guided sightseeing in the upfront price. To keep prices low and uphold the company's philosophy of sustainable tourism, Intrepid might use local transportation rather than a private motorcoach and family-owned cafes instead of larger restaurant chains.

Intrepid's China tours carry small groups of travelers and provide the freedom and flexibility of independent travel, along with the security of traveling with an experienced tour director. Your director will share valuable insight and help you make the most of every experience.

China tours are classified according to the quality and location of hotels and restaurants and the number of included meals and activities. For tours that include a Yangtze River cruise, the attributes of the vessel and its accommodations are also considered. Intrepid tours are categorized as budget on the industry rating scale (budget, first class and deluxe).
