About Our holidays to China, Vietnam Tours, Indochina Holidays and other Asian Destinations
We are a small travel company who provide quality holidays to China, Vietnam tours and Indochina holidays. We also serve Japan, Singapore and other parts of the Far East such as Thailand, Cambodia, Myanmar and Nepal. Our priority is customer satisfaction, and to achieve this we aim to give you a personalised service. You can be assured that when booking with us there will be no hidden costs. We do not cut-corners to save money, and all hotels and restaurants are of a high standard and quality. To us you are an individual, not just a number.
Our staff have either lived or travelled in China and Indochina, creating and personally running tours, for over 20 years. Our in-depth knowledge and understanding of people travelling to Asia is second to none. Many organisations who advertise holidays to China and Indochina and claim to have knowledge, have not lived and travelled across China and Indochina as we have, and this is where our detailed knowledge and advice stands-out from the rest!
When booking you holiday you want to know you are in capable hands and that you are dealing with people who really know what they are talking about. It's never an easy decision to make - do you want to book a holiday to China or Indochina with a company whose personnel who have never even been and experienced these area's? Or do you want to place your trust in the hands of a company who know China, Vietnam etc. first-hand and can give you sound advice? If the second option is what you are looking for, then choosing Emperor Tours Ltd will make your holiday to China and Indochina an unforgettable experience, together with that added "personal touch!"
We hold a fully bonded ATOL licence. ATOL stands for Air Travel Organiser's Licence, and is the only Government licensing and financial protection scheme for air holidays and flights sold by tour operators. We are constantly monitored by the Civil Aviation Authority, who provide the ATOL licence, to ensure protection to customers from losing money or being stranded abroad if we go bust. This means you are covered at every stage of your journey, and you are even covered if you have paid for your journey and not yet departed.
This protection ensures you have full financial protection, no matter if paying by cheque or credit card, from the moment you book a tour with us until your return, giving you peace-of-mind throughout.
The hotels we use through Emperor Tours holidays are all high quality and located in the heart of city centres We have carefully chosen our selection of hotels for location, cleanliness, attentive service and comfortable surroundings. All accommodation has private en-suite facilities and most clients are surprised by the very high standard of facilities and service offered by most hotels in China. Emperor Tours has no direct control over the daily management of the hotels, and in the event that we have to change hotels, every effort will be made to substitute hotels to the same standard. We must stress that the facilities of some hotels in more remote regions are basic. Emperor Tours has made every effort to ensure it is of the highest standard within that region, but be prepared to accept lower standards in return for experiencing the spectacular scenery in the area. Due to the nature of Group Tours one cannot chose their own hotel - these are selected by Emperor Tours.
NOTE - Emperor Tours are one of the only China tour company who offer hotels based in the heart of city centres. Most other China tour companies offer accommodation in city centres but these are based on the outskirts of the city centre in business districts etc

China is a vast country with a wide diversity of ethnic groups and eating habits. In general, however, the Chinese recognise the relationship of diet to good health, and believe that the ideal diet is one that stresses both diversity and balance.
The restaurants we use through Emperor Tours provide traditional Chinese food, prepared and served to a very high quality standard. Meals offered will have a good variety of meat, vegetables and fish to suit you, whatever your preference may be.
Wherever possible we use direct flights to China with British Airways and Virgin Atlantic (SPECIAL NOTE: Some tour operators only offer indirect flights - at Emperor Tours we feel this can add many additional hours to your journey, which could be better spent on holiday in China!). All seats are booked on Economy Class, but this can be upgraded upon request. During peak periods however (Christmas, Easter and summer holidays) airlines charge considerably more, so a small surcharge may apply. Alternatively we will use indirect flights.
We can also arrange departure and return from your regional airport, but due to the fact that no airlines fly direct from regional airports, it will mean changing in Amsterdam, Paris or Frankfurt. In this case we use either KLM, Lufthansa or Air France.
Internal transfers are with all major Chinese carriers. Most airlines no longer use the Russian Ilyushin and Tupolev aircraft, and are now equipped with modern Airbus and Boeing jets. Most journeys are no longer than an average of 2 hours.
