David Allardice

TRUSTED TRAVEL EXPERT China

A self-confessed China junkie who has been living there for 25 years, David left both Scotland and a career in banking to follow his passion and establish Eastern Journeys, a boutique company specializing in private journeys throughout China, including Tibet and Hong Kong. David works with a wide range of budgets and is reliably candid about which itineraries, sights, or hotels are overrated and not worth your time or money. He’s particularly skilled at managing the complicated logistics of traveling around the region but is also happy to help travelers interested in booking just day-trips in key cities (he has a diverse network of local and very charming private guides). He particularly enjoys organizing family trips: He’ll have you and your kids visiting kite-making shops in Beijing, then flying your new purchase on the Great Wall. David was also included in Perrin’s People, Wendy’s award-winning list of top travel specialists, which was published annually in Condé Nast Traveler magazine from 2000 to 2013.
