In my work I have travelled over a million miles to visit both monumental and little known but amazing architectural and cultural sites around the globe. In China, I have relied solely on Wild China not only to get me there and back safely from even the most exotic and remote locations, but also to help me experience the local cultures and people in the most sensitive and revealing of ways. More than just the places and sites, it’s the people, their history and ways of living that define what of makes great places in the world, treasured.
One of the great admirations I hold for Wild China is not only for its ability to help foreigners “see China in a different way”, but the way it has built up the local tourism infrastructure throughout China as part of its business program. This was obvious from the very first trip I took with Wild China in 2004. The use of local young tour experts based not only in Beijing, Shanghai, Hangzhou, Guangzhou, but throughout even remote areas of the country (as in Shanxi and Yunnan provinces, and the Tibet Autonomous Region) is impressive as it is moving.
Many foreign tour companies bring in foreigners for their tour guides to “explain” China and they leave little permanent benefit to the areas they visit. With Wild China, they have developed deep contacts into the best ways to experience this big and diverse country. They have built a local infrastructure of Chinese tour experts and citizens who can show their own heritage in its most authentic form. I've always liked that.
I have recommended Wild China to international colleague organizations traveling in China with private planes, to families wanting a unique trekking experience in unchartered wilderness. In all cases, Wild China never fails to deliver, and it’s a company that always finds a way to give you an unforgettable, -- if not totally unexpected -- life trip.
