Home China Photo Tours

Our China photo tours now cover four main destinations: Guilin (Yangshuo & Longji), Huangshan (Yellow Mountains & Hongcun village), Zhangjiajie and Xiapu.

Sunrise over karst mountains, cormorant fishermen floating through mist on the Li River, long-haired minority women walking in rice terraces, unpredictable seas of cloud around the Yellow Mountains, breathtaking Avatar mountains, busy farmers walking fast on mudflats, and more. All these create a photo album of China, and that's what we’ll do.

" We usually travel independently without a tour guide, but know we never would have been able to do half of the sights we saw with Mercier on our own." — Bernadette Wensley
