Local Guides

Why ruin a trip on a crap shoot with a local guide? We only use friends and partners we've known for years. Sure to entertain, deliver local tips, and always point us in the right direction. 


Food & Food!

We don't eat with other tourists. We feast at restaurants we know and love! In fact, we have an entire team in China dedicated to keeping us up-to-date with the best new restaurants in each city. 



Education is always at the heart of what we do. Teaching on the go with lessons specific to each destination keeps our travelers engaged and confident in trying out their Mandarin.

Family Tours

Have your family join our family for an unforgettable trip to China. We have family friendly activities planned throughout the country for all ages and Mandarin levels. 

Mandarin lessons are available throughout the trip for you and your children. We are teachers at heart and love teaching on the go. 


Immersion Excursion

High school students can expect to come away from a Manhattan Mandarin Immersion Excursion learning a full year of high school Mandarin in just 2 weeks. Speaking and listening skills will sky rocket. Come back to school with way more confidence in your skills. 

Teaching Mandarin is what we do best but we don't let it get in the way of our travel. We learn on the go and don't waste anytime inside. We've done classes on the Great Wall, in the Forbidden City, on the tea fields of Hangzhou.


School Tours

Teachers! Stop wasting your time planning your summer or Spring Break trip. Let us handle the hassle and allow you to concentrate on your job. 

Our tour leaders have been leading school trips to China since 2010 and know what parents, students, and schools expect. We will handle all the details and make sure the parents, administration, and students feel safe and sound on their amazing journey. 

"My 14 year old daughter had an incredible experience. She became a more fluent speaker of Mandarin and a more confident traveler. Having negotiated 4 cities in 15 days in China, she can now travel anywhere in the world. The itinerary, that had both academic cultural components, was well vetted. Jamie and Harry were energetic, thoughtful and humorous, and took great care of their charges.  I’m just sorry I didn’t go!"
