An Escorted Journey

A very special luxury guided tour of China with Duncan Hewitt

This exclusive journey winds between the towering skyscrapers of Beijing and Shanghai and out into the open countryside of the Great Wall and beyond. We’ve arranged an eclectic mix of leading historians, wall specialists, chefs, artists and local villagers to open their doors and allow guests to get under the skin of some of the highlights of China. Not missing world-renowned sites such as the Terracotta Warriors, this adventure also visits remote villages and towns by vehicle (or on horseback for any riders). Along the way we have arranged a stay in the very best properties in each region to give an enticing balance of luxury and real life in China.

China is a complex country with a rich past and an intriguing future and it’s only through the eyes of people who have dedicated their lives to understanding its culture that visitors can be given a true account of what really makes this country so special. Guided by Duncan Hewitt, a writer and journalist, who has lived in China for the past 15 years you will be given a backstage pass with private access to some of the country’s most important museums and cultural sites.

“It’s only through the eyes of people who have dedicated their lives to understanding China’s culture that visitors can be given a true account of what really makes this country so special.”

At cazenove+loyd we have always understood the importance of getting the basics right first and then embellishing them with special touches to make the overall experience feel effortless and completely magical. This adventure has been carefully thought out in order to give you a full and comprehensive experience of China with time to take it in at your own pace and relax in the knowledge that someone is one step ahead with what comes next. The private cocktail parties, fine dining and VIP access will ensure exclusivity and comfort without losing a sense of place and tradition.
