Not saying a bad deal - but please read the fine print. I see things like "Voucher does not include gratuities of $100 per person (due at booking)" and another around $100 in Tips not included required at booking (may be the same thing) - Chinese visa an additional fee of $190 per person for a multiple 10 year entry visa

I would think it's still a solid deal but just be aware you're not getting this for anywhere near $649.

The tour company gets pretty good reviews on TripAdvisor [tripadvisor.com]

It does include most breakfasts, most likely continental at the hotel and some lunches. But looks like you are on your own for most dinners.

But for 2 people we typically spend $3000 for an all inclusive, and then another $400 in tips and that is only for 7 days.

Not a cheap as they may advertise, can see extra $390 is just the fine print. But would defiantly be a once in a lifetime trip/tour.

Never been on a guided tour but for around 2200 a 10 day trip to China from Palm beach is a pretty decent deal if the hotels aren't terrible

The reviews say they take you to multiple "factory shopping tours" Seems strange, I wonder if that is how they make their money.

I was in china this summer. Went all over. Tickets can be had for about 500-600 RT anytime besides summer. The meals are about $1-2 max. maybe 4 for high end.

Its very hard to communicate or order things since nobody outside of beijing and shanghai speak english and even in beijing most did not. You COULD do this tour but its completely doable on your own and you probably wont save much if you do this tour. But it might be more conveinant.

Shenghai isnt all that great though imo. Didnt look at what all you do but beijing is big enough to spend a few weeks at.

The factory shopping tours are the worst. I did a similar china tour a few years back, and they'd wake us up at the ass crack of dawn only to leave us at these factories to shop for a few hours at a time...as long as you are realistic and are ok with waking up super early on vacation, then it's a really good deal!

If this includes factory shopping tours then the price should be $100 not including air.

I'm Chinese American and our Chinese tour companies offer this same deal. The food is not bad, some places good, and the hotels are pretty nice. Expect one to two shopping tours a day which is about 1-2 hours total.

They are heavily subsidized. When I went for $100 for a week I felt like it was a pretty sweet deal after it was all said and done.

The hotels are 4/5 star which I would say is a Hilton or Marriott equivalent but don't expect the service.

This part is the worst. They drop you off at jewelry stores, herbal medicine retailers, and similar outfits for a few hours. Nothing like waking up to go see the great wall and making multiple stops on the way there and on the way back and then only spending an hour or two at the wall itself. And yes, the guides typically get some kind of spiff or commission for taking you to these places.

Loved China!!!

Wife and I went there last April and it was a blast!

Trains/subways in Beijing, Shanghai, and Hong Kong we all in English. Project Fi worked there just fine, Gmail didn't though.

Food was awesome, people were really friendly, but I did catch a nasty flu at the end that drained me so badly I lost 15 pounds over the next 2 weeks. Other then getting sick, it was a blast.

Also, getting a Chinese visa is a complete pain in the ass... It cannot be done online so if you're planning on going, get ready to spend about 2 hours at their embassy (once to stop off the application and once to pick it up) or if you don't live near one get ready shell out a couple hundred bucks to a company to go for you bc, oh yeah, they don't take visa applications via mail either...
