Before you book a photography tour package for China, one essential question that you need to ask the company is whether they are sending professional guide(s) or not. If they don’t, then immediately refrain from choosing that company.

Always ask them to provide documents that prove that the guide(s) are indeed experienced and qualified for the task they are doing.
