Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: Why have some of the meals been taken out of tours?

It is very important to us to ensure that you get the best value for your dollar without sacrificing service or convenience. Most of the meals that were taken out of the itineraries were "in-flight" meals. We have found that recently many of the airlines, in an effort to save money, no longer offer meals and are only offering a snack. In order for us to maintain the included meals for clients, we are required to give up precious time out of touring to ensure the group has a meal. The best answer to that was to give clients the opportunity to decide what they would like to eat on those days, giving you flexibility without taking time away from your touring. Also, we received feedback from past clients who said that after many days eating with the group some people would prefer to eat on their own. Clients now have a choice on those days as to where and what to eat and whether they would like to eat alone or with fellow travelers. For your first day arriving in Shanghai, the hotel is only blocks from a main shopping area (Nanjing Road and People's Square) so that clients can shop and dine with many options. We have ensured that when meals are not offered, the guide will suggest a place to eat that will satisfy the individual client's needs for that day. This also allows us to put your money toward improved included meals, ensuring you get the best experience for your money.
