Plot Your Own Path


Traveling privately on a custom itinerary means flexibility – flexibility to immerse yourself in your own exclusive experience, to craft an itinerary around your interests, and to travel when it’s right for you.

Want to get an inside look into the daily life of a panda keeper at a Giant Panda sanctuary by volunteering to assist the caretakers for a day? How about a visit to a private fig orchard to try what are considered to be the most flavorful figs in China – and possibly the world? Need suggestions?
