Choose the right airline for your China Vacations

Please note China Spree has exclusive contracts with Air Canada, Air China and China’s Hainan Airlines, who operate non-stop service from either Vancouver or Toronto to Beijing.

If you have a group of 10 adults (12 years and older) out of the same gateway city, China Spree will do comparison shopping for you to make sure our package tour customized for your private party use the least expensive airlines with the air routes and flight schedule that works best for you.

Our scheduled departures use Air China flights out of Vancouver (YVR) and New York (JFK). Air China currently only operates non-stop flight out of YVR to Beijing, so for travelers on the East coast we have to fly you to China via New York JFK for our scheduled departures. By using Air China for transpacific flights, we can get a huge discount for China domestic flights – the advantage none of the Canada and U.S. carriers can offer. Besides, Air China offers one complimentary seat for every 16 travelers out of the same gateway, except special promotion dates (usually from November to March, or April, please call for details)

Since you are planning a private group travel, we can alternatively use Air Canada (AC) or Hainan Airlines (HU) to fly out of Toronto (YYZ) for travelers from the East coast.

Private Tour Templates & Sample Itineraries
Featured vacations, popular China tour itineraries and trip template

Private parties, Spring breakers, students, families, churches, fund-raisers, private organizations and those who are particular on travel dates, or have limited vacation time, or seek a luxury travel experience, or work on a travel budget, or plan a multi-country tour.

While in our 2011 China Tours, we offer a large selection of popular China tour packages, we are also aware that some travelers and private parties are more particular about travel dates and trip routes, or have limited vacation time, or work with a tight budget, and therefore look for different tour options that fit their particulars better than our scheduled China tour packages.

Based on common inquires and our experience working with numerous private parties, we created a few tour itineraries and templates that give you more flexibility in terms of travel dates, tour pricing, trip length, hotel selections, travel route and sites etc. As long as you have a minimum of 10 adult travelers (12 years and older) flying out of the same gateway (YVR or JFK) traveling on the same day with the same air routing, you are eligible for a private tour exclusively arranged for your group. For every 15 travelers, you, as the 16th, travel for free based on twin-sharing room and only subject to air taxes and the China visa fee.

Follow our recommended tour itineraries or simply use them as templates to create your own vacation. The choices are always yours.

Dear Mr. Wilson Wu:

Thank you so much for assisting us with our trip to Beijing, China in June/July 2008. It was a complete success! As you know, we traveled with over 40 children ages 9-12 as well as adults who were part of an international ice hockey tournament.  Our team’s success would not have been possible without the outstanding assistance of China Spree. Every aspect of our trip was beyond our expectations. Your team at China Spree obviously has excellent contacts in China that allowed us to flexibly plan our tour to fit the special needs of traveling with a youth hockey team involved in both competitive games and sightseeing. The hotel selection was superb, our tour guide and bus driver were very pleasant, spoke perfect English, and were very informative and attentive. All of the members of our travel group would whole heartedly recommend your agency to any travelers interested in going to China. Our trip to China was once in a lifetime experience that we will always remember. Thank you again!!

Chinaspree offers First Class China Travel at Unbeatable Value. As a major tour operator, I would argue that Chinaspree delivers much more. They provide advocacy on which you can stake your personal and professional reputation. While the company and their guides deserve innumerable superlatives for their exceptional service, I choose to describe Chinaspree through the value they bring to their clients. Chinaspree provides confidence with integrity, trust, and dedicated commitment to the success of your tour.

have hired them twice to assist me in the development of student tour for my client, an eminent college of art and design. The purpose of the trip was to build relationships for the school and introduce students to businesses in China, with both multinationals and Chinese-owned enterprises, while simultaneously sharing the country's rich legacy of 6,000 years of design, history, and culture.

From the beginning, this project presented extraordinary challenges; coordination of numerous business meetings with diverse locations, unique tour destinations focused on design and architecture, and the large size of our group including 33 college students and alumni.

The owners of Chinaspree were personally involved in the development of the tour, providing me with timely and reliable information that I could share with my client relationship. They were accessible and responsive to my many questions. Most importantly, they were good listeners to both ideas and concerns.

The execution of our tour agenda was flawless. We were fortunate to have had the strong leadership of Chinaspree National Tour Guide, Li Min. She has strength of integrity, moral conviction and undying dedication to her tour groups. In my opinion, she is a national treasure of China. She represents the Chinese culture and people well through her warmth, kindness, intelligence, sense of humor, and strong work ethic. It is evident that she loves her work for Chinaspree and her clients.

According to a student at the college, "I was blown away. We saw things that run the gamut from historical to contemporary galleries". "People in China have a respect for history, pride in their culture, and confidence in their ability to succeed." He added, “This spirit spills over into design and the responsibility of designers and artists to interpret history while pioneering new dimensions as their culture evolves."

highly recommend Chinaspree for the value they brought in my consulting role with my client. They made my trip a significant success, the largest tour the school has ever done and considered one of the most successful. It is currently being featured in an industry newsletter relating the favorable benefits of enhanced educational experiences through travel. Thank you for making me look good, Chinaspree. I can't wait to bring other student tours to China with your assistance.

The Only way to go to China is with China Spree, Tour Beyond!

the Head Coach of the Princeton University Track Team, I researched many tour operations for our trip to China during the summer of 2007. From the moment I contacted China Spree I felt confident that our group would be taken care of with the highest level of service.

Princeton traveled with a very large group, 73 athletes and staff. We also had numerous requirements particular to our group. We need to set up training times and schedules around our two competitions while we were in China.

All of these requirements were handled with great professionalism. From the moment we landed in Beijing and were met by the fantastic tour guides, we were taken care of. Not once did I feel worried about our travel arrangements.

We stayed at wonderful hotels. The food each day was excellent. Our itinerary included all of the historic cultural sites. Our guides were both national and local, which added a great deal of knowledge and interest for our group. When one considers the size of our group it was truly amazing how well organized our tour guides were and how well informed they kept us.

high recommend China Spree to any university or large tour group that wants the best experience while traveling to China.

It was the trip of a lifetime for our athletes and China Spree made every moment worth remembering.

Please feel free to contact me if you need any further information or reflection about our trip.

Dear Wilson:

I am writing to thank you and China Spree for the absolutely wonderful trip to China that you put together for us, so that we could tour two major cities—Beijing and Xian, before moving on to attend the 2007 World Games in Shanghai! I appreciate that you were also able to offer two tours for us—a 12-Day and an 18-Day, so that our group of 40 people had a choice according to their schedules.

understand the importance of testimonials, as that was a determining factor for decided upon your tour group, along with the great price you offered, as I searched online for affordable tours. So, I’m writing this for future individuals and groups, to help them decide which tour group to use.

Wilson, I am happy to say that China Spree fulfilled ALL of its promises, while offering quality hotels to stay at, in all three cities. The first five days were very fast-paced which enabled us to see much as possible in such a short time. The buses were clean and comfortable.

The highlight of our three-day stay in Beijing for me, were riding through the Hutong district by ricksaw and, of course, the Great Wall, even driving up to Badaling and seeing the wall from various locations was breathtaking. In Xian, my favorite two things were seeing the Tang Dynasty Show (spectacular) and visiting the Terra-cotta Warriors site!

All of the China Spree tour guides were punctual, knowledgeable, professional and personable, but I can’t begin to say enough about your national guide, Robert. He was all of the above and more—always patient, helpful, thoughtful and a lot of fund to be with!

Thanks for the memories! That’s what traveling is all about—out photos are precious, but it’s the memories that are priceless. I still don’t understand how you can offer AND fulfill all that you have for the price! It was truly a pleasure doing business with you!

China Tours - Private Group for Family Reunion

Dear Wilson:

We just returned from our China Highlights & Yangtze Cruise private tour which you have organized for our group of 20. I have been to China a few times before, some with escorted tours and other times I was there on my own while this is the first time for the other 19 people in the group. We all have a very enjoyable time and for me this was the best planned trip ever. Even though I was revisiting some places, such as Beijing, Shanghai and Suzhou, I enjoyed new perspectives in each city. The highlights for our group was the Great Wall, The Terra Cotta Warriors Site, the Yangtze Cruise and the lunch with a local family in Beijing. The Tang Dynasty show in Xian and the Acrobatic show in Shanghai were also spectacular. Our group members could not believe how organized the whole trip was, from the time we were met at the Beijing Airport to the time we checked in for departure at the Shanghai airport, we were very well taken care of. The transitions from city to city were very smooth and pleasant and the hotels, coaches and food were all good. We were all amazed at the quality and value of service your company provides. However the most valuable are your tour guides, they were all very knowledgeable, pleasant, and patient with us and speak English very well. We especially want to thank Robert, our national guide. He was kind, helpful, very organized and always smiling. We had so much fun that some of us are already thinking of a return trip to other parts of China. I did a lot of research to pick a tour company for our trip and I am so happy I decided on China Spree. Thank you for a great adventure !

As the organizer and leader of a tour group of 42 first time travelers to the People's Republic of China in October, Wilson Wu and China Spree made my job almost effortless. Most tour members had never used an Internet travel company before and were reluctant participants as they waited for something to go wrong. Many wondered, "Will my payment be received and properly credited to me?", "will I receive my tickets and travel documents as promised?", "will the hotels be quality hotels?", "will the buses be comfortable and modern?" "Will I see all the sites promised on the website?" "How can China Spree deliver all they promise for such a bargain price?" Although I assured everyone that they would get all that was promised, some questioned based on other tour experiences and thought surely this is too good to be true and held their breath while waiting for something to go wrong. Wilson Wu and China Spree are exactly what they say on their website "Your China Travel Specialist". They know China and they pay attention to every travel detail and know how to provide a top quality tour at a very economical price. I am a seasoned traveler and I know of no other tour where you get as much for your money as you do with China Spree. Although many tour members initially had questions and doubts about the tour, I'm still receiving emails from tour members raving about the trip and all that they saw and experienced and how they got more than their money's worth during this Trip.

Now, a month later, many cannot believe they actually saw and did so much during their 12 day tour of China. China Spree delivers! They deliver on all that they promise in their tour description on their website. They hire seasoned, professional National Tour guides who also know how to deliver. There are, of course, more expensive tours, but I cannot imagine any tour that gives you more for your money than China Spree. If you want a multi-layered visit and experience in China, from famous sites such as Tiananmen Square, The Forbidden City, The Great Wall, Hutong "neighborhood " up close and personal visits with local families, art studio and gallery visits, Terra Cotta Warrior Museum, modern buildings and museums, a world famous tea farm visit, serene boat rides on lakes and canals just to name a few of the sites plus vivid cultural shows; China Spree delivers it all with style, grace and low cost. I recommend China Spree to both the first time traveler and seasoned traveler to China.
