Home China Photo Tours

We currently offer private China photo tours that include four primary locations: Guilin, Huangshan, Zhangjiajie and Xiapu.

Our tours provide an opportunity to capture stunning shots of the sunrise over the karst mountains, cormorant fishermen navigating through the mist on the Li River, long-haired minority women walking amidst rice terraces, the unpredictable sea of clouds surrounding the Yellow Mountains, the breathtaking Avatar mountains, and busy farmers swiftly walking on the mudflats. These picturesque moments will be compiled into an impressive photo album of China during our tour.

"We never would have been able to do half of the sights we saw with Mercier on our own."
