Great Wall of China

China Custom Travel Planner:  David Allardice: Eastern JourneysWhat we like most about Allardice, a Brit who has lived in Hong Kong for the past 23 years, are his tricks for beating China’s notorious crowds—he’ll get you to the most popular sights at optimal hours of the day, as well as inside the special parts that are off-limits to the masses—and the cross-cultural interactions he can engineer.

China Custom Travel Planner:  Gerald Hetherly: Abercrombie & KentHe knows how to negotiate the big cities so efficiently that you’ll have enough time for the lesser-known rural gems such as the rice terraces of Longsheng or the bamboo forests of Zhejiang, where the raw beauty of fast-vanishing bucolic China can still be found.

Travel & Leisure A-List

China Custom Travel Planner: Guy Rubin: Imperial ToursWhen Rubin moved to China, in 1994, he was surprised to find a dearth of resources for discerning travelers in a country so rich in cultural heritage and natural beauty. He and his wife and partner, Nancy Kim, set out to change that, and they now lead China’s most sophisticated luxury tour operator. To keep up with the country’s rapid transformation, Rubin is constantly inspecting new hotels and planning new excursions.

China Custom Travel Planner:  David Allardice: Eastern JourneysDavid works with a wide range of budgets and is reliably candid about which itineraries, sights, or hotels are overrated and not worth your time or money. He’s particularly skilled at managing the complicated logistics of traveling around the region but is also happy to help travelers interested in booking just day trips in key cities (he has a diverse network of local and very charming private guides). He particularly enjoys organizing family trips: He’ll have you and your kids visiting kite-making shops in Beijing, then flying your new purchase on the Great Wall.
