Travel Forums Asia GAP Adventures in China?

My brother and I will be travelling to China in August.

We will most likely be using GAP Adventures because they have the best trip that fits out timeframe.

Has anyone here ever been on a GAP tour, especially one in Asia. I see from posts that they do Central and South America pretty well. Is that just a regional fluke or are they good all around?

Also, the tour we are looking at is a Comfort tour. I know what the book says "Comfort" is, but just to confirm: superior hotels mean no cockroaches and private baths, right?

I have not yet gone on a GAP adventure but plan to do so a year or two from now to go on their Antarctica tour. It was highly recommended by a TravellersPoint member who had gone on the GAP adventure to Antarctica.

So, I guess GAP seems to to be doing a good job of organizing travel adventures irrespective of region. Have fun in China!

u dont have to go to superior hotels.

not good all around, you need to watch out.

hostel also have rooms with private bath room, and comfortable with air conditioner, and you save your money for some luxary food and goods.

people in china dont speak english, and you are responsable for yourself to learn some chinese before you go.

some luxary goods are extremely cheap in china.

Are you talking about China in general? Or do you have a complaint about GAP Adventures that you can substantiate? Because that question referred to GAP.

I went on a GAP Adventures trip to Peru last May and had a fantastic time. I would have no problem booking a trip with them again. No complaints here.
