China Spree is one of the few tour companies selling reasonably low-priced package tours to China and yet intentionally controls the group size.
We know that you flew thousands of miles not merely to see China but also to feel it and all it has to offer. This is one of the main reasons that we limit the amount of travelers in a group. That way you get the respect you deserve and you will never be ignored and lost in the crowd. From a purely practical standpoint, smaller groups can also go to places and enjoy special events that are simply inaccessible to the larger ones. In addition to a local tour guide to escort a group in each destination city, we also assign a National guide to further look after our customers for tours of 10 passengers or more (except some tours under "Specials").
Except the value promotional tours under "Specials", all other popular tours under Deluxe and Luxury travel categories are on average 12-18 travelers per group with maximum size of 20-something. The deluxe quietvox headphones will be provided to all tour members if the group size is 24 and over. When the group size reaches 30 passengers, we will split the group into two or more smaller groups, so each tour participant can get the attention they need.
Promotional tours under "Specials": The average group size is between 20-32 passengers. On rare occasions (particularly in the winter season) the group size can be over 40. We need a minimum of 10 for a guaranteed departure.
Tours under "Deluxe" travel category: The average group size is between 12-18 passengers. The maximum size is under 30. If the group size is over 24 passengers, we will provide the deluxe quietvox headphone to each tour participant. If the group size is over 30, we will split the group into two or more smaller groups to keep the group size under 30. We need a minimum of 6 tour participants to guarantee a departure.
Tours under "Luxury" travel category: The average group size is often between 2-12 passengers, and the maximum size is 16. The deluxe quietvox headphone will be provided to all tour members if the group size is over 10. We will split the group into smaller subgroups if the group size is over 16. We need minimum of 2 tour participants to guarantee a departure.
Private tours: We respect the decision of the tour organizer and do not have limitations on their group size.
China Spree will provide the quietvox headphone to our Deluxe and Luxury tours if their group size is over 24 passengers. This means that each tour participant will receive a lightweight, portable receiver that can be worn around the neck or slipped into a pocket to aid in hearing the tour guides. The quietvox headphone is designed for comfort and quality; allowing you and your fellow travelers the ability to easily hear your tour guide’s instructions and stories.
