Treasures of China Tour with Hong Kong

14-Day Tour from Beijing to Hong Kong

Delve into the unique world of China during this magnificent tour as you explore Beijing, Xi’an, Guilin, Shanghai, and Hong Kong. As you’d expect from a vacation to China, a highlight is your visit to the Great Wall of China. As you walk along the wall, see how expansive it is and imagine what it was like to construct the wall—at a time without modern machinery to help! As if the Great Wall of China is not enough to astonish you, wait until you see the Terracotta Warriors in Xi’an. Discovered accidentally in 1974, construction on the roughly 8,000 soldiers, chariots, and horses started in 210 BC—all to help China’s first emperor in the afterlife.

These are just a sample of the many highlights you’ll see on this China tour. You’ll also be entertained by a show of music and dance from the Tang Dynasty, which reigned over 1,000 years ago. Ride a rickshaw through one of Beijing’s hutongs, the city’s ancient alleys.

Ghosts and Ghost Towns of Old Nevada Tour

2017-05-12T16:57:08+00:00
Explore the Nevada of yesteryear and be part of the authentic ghost hunt

The history of Nevada is as rich as the mines of the Silver State. Discover ghost towns, and maybe some actual ghosts, on this very unique tour that features the towns of Nelson, Goodsprings, Rhyolite, Beatty, Goldfield, Belmont and Bodie.

Our Goodsprings Ghost Hunt and Haunted Las Vegas & Mobster Tour will be conducted by Robert George Allen. At the age of 7, Robert had his first ghost encounter when he was visited by the spirit of a family member who would sit at the foot of his bed. The deceased man would smile at young Robert and then his image would dissolve. His parents thought he had an overactive imagination. As Robert got older, he became a musician with an interest in hypnotism. His musical career took him to the biggest showrooms in Vegas over 25 years, but he never lost his interest in the paranormal. He created the Haunted Vegas Tour in 2004, and along with the Goodsprings Ghost Hunt, has received numerous awards from Trip Advisor and others. If you’re not a believer going in, you may be a believer coming out…

  • Haunted Las Vegas Tour
