We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

Zhengzhou Tour

Zhengzhou is the regional capital of Henan Province, a megacity which comprises 6 urban districts, 5 county-level cities and 1 county. It is geographically located in the center of China, south of the middle reach of Yellow River. It is a national transportation hub with the major railway lines meetings here.

Although Zhengzhou is known as one of the eight ancient capitals in China, there is not much above ground remains of the historical sites in its city proper, its fantastic Henan Provincial Museum will definitely use up your half day on a wonderful virtual tour of Henan.

Zhengzhou often serves as a starting point from where you can easily make short trips to the world famous Shaolin Temple, the birthplace of Huang Di, North Song Dynasty Imperial Tombs and Zhengzhou Dahecun Ruins. Zhengzhou is also one of the convenient places to see and touch Yellow River, the mother river of China.
