I've seen several very cheap offers from travelzoo in the past couple of weeks and was wondering if anyone has done a guided tour in china and can give advise.
The one I got today leaves San Fran, 6 nights hotel in Beijing, 3 days guided tours, 9 meals, and air for $899. Seems insanely cheap and hard to pass up. There are others which stay longer but all are good values...I think.
Which companies have you used, how good are the guides, what's the can't miss items, worth it to do the ones that have 3-4 cities and fly in between? Forbidden city and the great wall are the only "must see" items atm.
