How to Book
- Book through UTO Vacations and select one of the many dates available.
- There are several optional tours you can book as well as utilizing their Chinese Visa service. In my experience you can find much cheaper services on your own, so I would advise against the additional visa service.
Good Luck and Happy Travels!
