Gary Li, our guide from the Silk Road Trip last May, was finally able to set up his company, Lonely Planet China Adventures (LPC China Adventures). The very first day of the trip, he mentioned that he was working on it as we were driving to Tienanmen Square to start our day's touring.
So, if you're traveling to Beijing for the Olympics this year, and have a yearning to see more of China than just the sporting events, head over to Gary's website, Lonely Planet China, and sign up for one of his tours. They span much of the country (unfortunately skipping the farther western areas - maybe in future tours) and he can give you an exciting, safe and incredible experience.
If you mention that I sent you, he'll give you 20% off the already very reasonable prices!
Travel with Gary!
