What is the difference between Private tours and SIC tours?
Usually, we provide a car for 1 to 3 guests, a van for 4 to 9 guests, etc. For guests who purchase our private package, you will never be mixed with other tourists when sightseeing and transferring. For group size bigger than 5 guests, we would recommend you take our private package because the price gets very close to that of SIC. Compare to SIC tour, private tour is more flexible, for instance, you may change your itineraries with your guide directly at the last minutes and make stops at places you did not have in your original itinerary, or you want to spend more time at places you feel like than what has been scheduled.
Private tours are fully escorted packages, which means in each city, you will have your own professional tour guide speaking your language and a private air-conditioned car/van/coach with your private driver at your service during your staying there, from meeting you at the airport (or train station) upon your arrival, showing you around, till seeing you off at the airport (or train station) for your next destination. If you take our private package, you will not be mixed with other tourists when sightseeing and transferring except that you take the Yangtze River Cruise and Li River Cruise. SIC tours stands for Seat-in-Coach Tours, which means you will share an air-conditioned coach with other tourists and you will have an English-speaking tour guide to take you to all the scenic spots listed in the Itinerary that day. Usually your tour guide will contact you the night before to inform you about the next day’s departure time, and the next day our coach (bus)and guide will go from hotel
