Why choose Backroads of China?

  • We work very hard to provide our customers with professional, efficient and friendly service.
  • We offer an economical alternative for the budget-minded traveler. Being a small, web-based service, we do not have the overheads of larger travel companies. We also book all guides, drivers and accommodation directly resulting in maximal savings for the customer.
  • We personally plan and arrange every one of our tours. Unless limited by the tourism situation (as in Tibet), we do not “sell” tours to local operators as is common practice with China-wide and foreign tour operators.  This gives us maximal control over the services provided.
  • We customize your tour, providing extensive consultation during the planning process to allow you to choose the itinerary and services that fit with your interests, timeframe, budget and group needs.
  • Our tours must be good as we have never advertised. Our business has evolved purely by word of mouth.
  • We care about your feedback. If any problems arise during the tour, we respond quickly to find a resolution. We also collect tour evaluations to allow us to monitor our customer satisfaction, and modify our itineraries and services as needed.
  • We have a wonderful team of guides. Backroads of China is careful to select guides who are local, experienced, knowledgeable and personable. Please read about our guides for an introduction to the Backroads of China team.
