From the 13,000-mile-long Great Wall to the 121-story Shanghai Tower, China doesn't do anything small-scale. With that in mind, this escorted vacation package -- spanning three cities over 12 nights -- falls right in line.
Saving $1500 per person on competing packages, this $1999 per person deal includes roundtrip airfare, air and hotel taxes, meals, an English-speaking tour guide, ground transportation, a four-night river cruise, and eight nights in 4- and 5-star hotels.
Highlights of this deal from Gate 1 Travel include:
Guests spend four nights aboard a Yangtze River cruise, three nights in Beijing, three nights in Shanghai and two nights in Xian.
