Then proceed to visit the "Pedestrians only" Nanjing Road, a walking bustling street that is always packed with people waching other people. When people mention Shanghai's Nanjing Road, they're probably talking about East Nanjing Road, a pedestrian shopping street running for blocks between the northeast corner of People's Square and the Bund. Nanjing Road, 5.5 km in full length, enjoys the reputation as China No. 1 commercial center. It was the earliest commercial street in Shanghai since the city opened to the outside world.

The discovery of these pits has provided all important significance in the research of the burial system of the Qinshihuang’s Mausoleum, the characteristics structures and characteristics of the burial pits. However, what makes people feel amazing is that of all the burial pits, none has been found survived from being burnt down.
Your lunch is arranged at local restaurant with tasting local cuisine. Such as Liangpi, it is made from rice, this cold noodle dish is a summer favourite through Shaanxi province as well as other places around China. These rice noodles are covered with vinegar, chili, salt, garlic, bean sprouts and small lumps of tofu.Roujiamo,this is the Chinese hamburger. Basically it’s a small oven baked bread bun that is sliced open and filled with slowly braised shredded pork and small pieces of fat. I personally prefer to ask for the ‘Chun Shou Rou Jia Mo’ which is the same thing only this time they use lean meat and it’ll probably only cost you about one or two yuan more. Clearly this is one dish you can’t buy at Muslim street. It will be a Sample but typical and local.
After lunch, you will visit Big Wild Goose Pagoda, also named Giant Wild Goose Pagoda. It is a Buddhist pagoda located in southern Xi'and became the symbol of the old-line Xi'an.

I recently went on a family trip to China and used China Private Tours to organize our itinerary. Bonnie, our agent, was extremely helpful and responsive, making the booking process very easy.
All of our guides were fantastic, providing great recommendations for local food and being very professional and accommodating throughout our trip. The drivers were also very experienced and kept their cars very clean, ensuring our safety and comfort.
I want to give special recognition to three of our guides who really stood out. First, Sarah in Xi'an helped us tremendously when one of our friends had to return home due to a family emergency. She was able to arrange a flight for him that same evening, which was a huge relief for all of us.
Second, Lucy in Beijing was incredibly thoughtful and attentive. She arranged a birthday cake for my friend, which was a very nice surprise and made her feel very special.
Finally, Lily in Shanghai was a lot of fun and shared many interesting stories about growing up in the city. She was also very organized and considerate, making sure we got the best photo opportunities at all the sights we visited.
Overall, I would highly recommend China Private Tours for anyone planning a trip to China. The service and attention to detail were excellent, and we had a wonderful time thanks to the great work of Bonnie and her team.

Hello, I’m really hoping you have a trip starting on April 22nd, 23rd, or 24th that you can squeeze me on. I’m a solo traveler and I’d bought a tour through intrepid, but they canceled the tour on me and my flight (purchased separately) was non-refundable. I fly to Shanghai on April 22, 2023 and leave Beijing on April 30. I already have my visa and passport and I’m in good health and easy to work with.
Replied:11 March 2023
Dear Allison Loomis,
Thank you for reaching out to us. Unfortunately, we do not have a group tour available on the dates you mentioned (April 22nd, 23rd, or 24th) due to the low number of tourists during that period.
We are sorry to hear that your previously booked tour with Intrepid was canceled and understand how frustrating it must be to have a non-refundable flight. While we cannot accommodate you on a group tour, we would be happy to explore other options with you, such as arranging a private tour or recommending other activities to enjoy during your stay in China.
Please let us know if you would be interested in discussing these options further or if you have any other questions.
Thank you for considering us, and we hope to hear from you soon.

Bonnie has done a tremendous job in organizing my family's trip to China visiting Shanghai Beijing and Xian. She has been very prompt with her responses and has gone above and beyond to tailor our tour to suit our needs. It's made the online booking process so much easier for me. All the guides have given us good suggestions on where to eat and what local delicacies to try. We are happy with all the meals we had. All the guides were very professional and obliging.
All the guides could converse in English well. The drivers were very experienced and most diligent in maintaining the cleanliness of their cars. Thanks to them, we were able to ride safely and comfortably throughout the journey. (1)Tracy at Xi'an. On our 2nd day in Xi'an, one of our friends could not continue his trip and had to return home immediately due to an urgent family matter. Our tour guide, Tracy, was exceedingly helpful in arranging for my friend to return home at the earliest possible time. Thanks to her initiatives and coordination, my friend flew home on the same evening. At the same time, the rest of us could continue our journey without much disruptions. (2) Linda at Beijing. Linda was always thoughtful and attentive to our needs throughout the 3 days we spent together. She surprised us by arranging a cake for my friend, Louise, as soon as she knew it was her birtrhday on 22 Dec. We were very touched by her kind gesture (and that of the agency) and it meant so much to us that our dear friend's birthday was celebrated as a "grand affair" even when we are so far away from home. (3) Li Xia at Shanghai. Li Xia was absolutely fun to be with. She was more like a friend than a tour guide to us, not only briefing us on the background and history of places we visit but also sharing her experience growing up in Shanghai and working as a tour guide. Whenever the bus ride was long, she would keep us occupied by pointing out interesting sites along the way so that we would not feel bored. Her organisational skills were excellent as she could accomodate our various requests most of the time and she was especially considerate with our photography requirements, finding us the most scenic spots for the best photographs. Thank you very much to you and your colleagues for the wonderful arrangements.
I would highly recommend China Private Tours.
