On The Go Tours hosts agents in China
On The Go Tours, an award-winning tour operator specialising in locally led group tours and tailor-made holidays to over 60 worldwide destinations, recently hosted a group of Australian travel agents in China on a specialised version of their Great Wall & Warriors nine day tour.
With over 1.1 million Chinese visitors arriving in Australia last financial year, and new flight routes between Australia and China continuing to open up, forecasts for outbound travel to China are also looking positive, so there is no better time for operators and agents to increase their product knowledge. For this agent famil On The Go Tours partnered with Singapore Airlines with flights into Beijing and out of Shanghai.
The group included Queensland representatives from the Flight Centre Travel Group and was hosted by On The Go’s Queensland BDM Kat Nitarski.
The nine-day itinerary was led by On The Go Tours expert local guide Feng and took the group to experience China’s many spectacular cultural attractions. Starting in Beijing the famil group travelled south to finish in Shanghai, taking in the historic city of Xi’an on the way.
This diverse itinerary included everything from iconic bucket list attractions such as; the Great Wall of China, Tiananmen Square, Forbidden city and the Terracotta Warriors to local experiences such as cycling on the medieval city wall of Xi’an and visiting the canals and gardens of Suzhou, the ‘Venice of the Orient’.
The group enjoyed range of comfortable lodgings, from the elegant Wan Nian Grand Hotel in Xi’an, complete with sauna, fitness centre and indoor pool to bunking down local style on China’s efficient and well kitted out overnight trains.
Embracing their inner child, the agents couldn’t resist adding on a day at Disney in Shanghai to complete their China experience!
