Definitely the best way to do it, it felt a little expensive at when booking but so glad I did. I was a single traveller really keen but quite daunted by doing China alone.

I booked The Dragon Trip 25 day China trip - Hong Kong to Hong Kong, for myself and 15 yo son. We had a limited time and wanted to see as much of china as we could. This was certainly the way to go. We got to see what we wanted in the time available on a budget we could... More

To start I paid £1300 for this tour through STA travel. It is described as a 'budget back packers tour' but the initial payment was an awful lot of money to pay out for a tour guide who has never done this tour before. He was accompanied by Alex a director of the company, for the first few days which... More

This has been my first traveling experience and it's been so much better than I could have hoped for. Over the 25 days you cover a crazy distance so be prepared for a lot of traveling; we've done buses to trams to trains. One of the train rides is 25hrs overnight but weirdly its one of the best memories I... More

This was my first group tour experience visiting a country, and WOW what a great way to cover such a large area in less than a month. The itinerary is pretty full on wit plenty of activities (most of which are optional) and a good amount of overnight trains for transport, giving you plenty of time to recap your adventures... More

Doing the 25 day round trip starting in Hong Kong has been an amazing experience and so much fun! The Dragon Trip has done a great job of looking after us and I will leave China knowing that I have seen all of the sights that I had wished for. The highlights have been camping on the Great Wall, the... More

Coming from various different tour groups, with different companies i was sceptical as to how things would run however we've not been disappointed! The places and activities included cant really...
