The city of the future
China is not only the world’s most powerful emerging power but also a country that has undergone a transformation in recent years that has left a deep mark on its most recent architecture.

Comments from our clients
We are back from our trip and it has been a week since we had the tour. Honestly, I don’t have much feedback to give to you: everything went extremely well! Diego (the tour guide) was very kind and prepared himself very well. He had nice and fun information on the architecture, buildings and the Chinese culture that we could not have found by ourselves. Also the local, Antonio, he brought was kind and he kept the group together and made sure no one was left behind. It was an extremely hot and humid morning, but Diego took us intomany buildings for an AC-break. They both took good care of us.
All in all, the tour was as best as it could have been and the whole group enjoyed it very much. On behalf of all of us, I would like to thank you for arranging this tour for us, and we will remember your service for future trips!
