Travel to China can sometimes be a stressful place to travel just by yourself or with a friend/spouse. So, what about with a group of, say, 10-15 people? After recently tour leading in Henan province, here are a few of my hints on how WildChina runs a successful group trip:
1) Keep the trip flexible: When you only have limited time to explore China, it is hard to predict how a large group will move, react to a certain activity, or feel after a long day of travel. Make a trip fulfilling, but not rigid. A group trip that evolves with its travelers’ needs is the most successful.
2) Take the trip outdoors: China boasts incredible architecture, scenery, hiking, and other attractions and activities outside. With a group of travelers, focus on areas where each person can have a unique – and comfortable – experience.
3) Give people free time: With a group of people traveling together, there will inevitably be differences of opinion when it comes to which places to see, how much time to spend at a given destination, et cetera. To make the most of a group excursion, give people enough time to explore what interests them at certain intervals of the trip. You’ll keep travelers happy and interested when later group activities occur.
