I hope you are all ready for one heck of a great year.  I know I am.  :)

To kick off our New Year, today we are announcing Heidi Swapp’s China tour for this coming September.  We only have room for 45 people, and it’s all based on a first-come, first-served basis.

Here are the details of the tour:

September 20-29, 2008

Package includes accommodations at an incredible 5-star hotel in the central part of Beijing, and staying there the entire time-so there is no packing and unpacking, 18 meals including a special Peking Duck Dinner, private Chinese guide the entire time, optional tour to the city of Xian to see the Terra Cotta Soldiers, great shopping in Silk Alley, the Pearl Market and other great places, sightseeing at the Great Wall, Tiannanmen Square, the Forbidden City, the Summer Palace, the Beijing Zoo to see the giant pandas, a jade carving factory, cloisonne factory, silk spinning mill, a children’s elementary school, a rickshaw ride in the old part of Beijing, a special lunch with local residents, incredible classes with celebrity Heidi Swapp, including scrapbooking kits, complimentary commemorative totebag and gifts, and so much more.

Cost for the tour only is $1987.00 per person.

If you would like to add round trip airfare from San Francisco, including round trip transfers from the airport in Beijing to our hotel, the entire 10-day tour totals $3332.00.  But you can do your own air and transfers if you’d like and just pay the tour cost.

We have another tour similar to this one with our quilting tour company, and it is hundreds of dollars more, so we are really excited this has come in so low.

Deposit is $450.00    

And here’s something that is also very exciting-we are donating $100 to a special orphanage near Beijing, for every person who joins our tour.  Heidi has been involved with this orphanage, and we want to do what we can to financially support it!

So there you have it.  If you have any questions, please call our office at 877 887 1188, and I will be happy to assist. I’ve been to China at least 12 times, and I know it very well.  I can tell you, this is one of those once-in-a-lifetime trips, and I promise you’ll have one of the greatest times of your life.

We’ll be posting a flyer on our website next week, so if you want to print the day to day information, it will be available then.  In the meantime, if you want me to email the information to you this week, contact me so you can secure your place before it sells out!

HAPPY NEW YEAR again, and let’s do what we can this year to really help out those people less fortunate than we are.  Everyone wins with this attitude!

  3. Hi Jim,

    just a quick couple of questions – are we able to come from Australia?
    and the cost i asume is in US $’s and i would only pay $1987 for the accomadation, food, classes etc – my airfares and transfers i would organise and pay ontop of this amount?

    sorry for the basic questions but i wanted to be sure before looking into airfares etc.
