    It is very flexible to make any adjustment according to your preference. We could deduct the airfare from your quotation. Or you could indicate us your member No. of Star Alliance so that we could use your No. when reserving the air tickets for you.

    Hi, I will stay in Xi’an from Oct 2 to Oct 4, and want to visit some sites there especially Huashan Mount, is it suitable during this period?

    Answered by travel consultant from CTCN

    Aug 20 , 2016 17:13

    It is not recommended to take a tour to Huashan Mount during National Day, since it would be very crowed and excellent service can not be guaranteed there on those days. So if your schedule is not fixed, you may visit it another time.

    Is it a must to tour Lhasa with a tour guide for foreigners?

    Answered by travel consultant from CTCN

    May 29 , 2016 09:03

    Foreigner visitors must be on a private or group tour with at least five visitors to tour Tibet, thus a tour guide is a need.
