"DISCOVER CHINA" Program & HOTELS DESCRIPTION

"DISCOVER CHINA" Mission Statement

"Discover China" Bicycle Tours Program is owned and operated by CYTS/China Youth Travel Services –Guangdong-, an Official Chinese Government Travel Bureau, based in GuangZhou (Canton). We were the first to inaugurate (back in 1981) bicycle tours for westerners in Mainland China and we pioneered the first cycling of Americans in GuangDong Province. Our finely crafted tours are designed to give you a total immersion into the diverse landscapes, culture, arts, and of course the rich cuisine of China. You can rest assured; we will always thrive to provide you continually updated scenic cycling routes and new interactive experiences for your personal enjoyment.

By marketing our trips DIRECTLY to you on the Internet, we eliminate expensive overhead costs and pass the savings along to you. These are the same tours with the same level of amenities as the ones promoted by well-known companies charging $2,900 to $3,700 for 11 days. Our 16 days trips are inexpensive (under $130/day). Prices are ALL INCLUSIVE; all lodgings, meals, sightseeing fees, domestic transportation (airfare and express train in China), interpreter/guides, mechanic, a bus and a van or truck. Bicycles (new Diamondback 21 speed hybrid bikes) rental fee of $148 can be waived at time of deposit. Inquire for details. Not Included: Air to HK, dinners on Day 8-10, visa, airport departure tax in China, gratuities to guides & staff, beverages other than tea and bus transfer at HK airport.
