Do we pay you the $169 visa fee and will you assist us with application? Typically how long does it take for US citizens to obtain visa and will we get it in time for 4/22 travel date?

Q:

I read your itinerary and noticed that there are shopping stops planned everyday. Can I opt out of the shopping stops and return to the hotel myself? If not, how long do we stop at each shopping location? Do we have to commit to buying anything there?

Joe W.  asked on  Mar 14, 2013

A:

hi, 1) here are about 4-5 shopping stops in the 8 days tour, not everyday, 2) you cannot go back to hotel, since most shooping stops are by sightseeing spot, like the Great wall, it is about 2 hours drive to hotel 3) shopping is one of the 6 most important characters in toursim, 4) no, you dont need, the shopping is about 45-60 minutes each. again, they are all by sightseeing spots, so they do not cost extra time on commute. the Silk spinning, tea making are very educational actually.
