  • Top in 2016 Value-Price Comparisons




    As the booking season for trips in 2016 moves into high gear for consumers planning their most memorable vacations outside U.S.A., many tour operators are rolling out booking incentives in the form of dollar savings before the early booking season officially ends soon.

    A representative sampling of two similar and competitive tour offers spanning two continents, China and Europe - sourced from the Internet has yielded the same result: That Ritz Tours, a 35-year-old tour operator from Los Angeles County, California consistently edged its competitors out of the value-price equation on similar tour offerings with current early booking benefits included.

    Europe Comparison 02

    Europe Tour Value Comparison

    Comparing the classic grand European motor-coach tours from London to Rome, Ritz Tours' offering can be at least $340 less than similar itineraries from Globus and Trafalgar without marked differences or sacrificing on the quality of hotel accommodations and sightseeing opportunities along the way. In fact, Ritz Tours' Gems of Europe itinerary gives its guests more options to experience a couple more unique European cities than the regular and at a lower cost.

    China Comparison 02

    China Tour Value Comparison

    The quality and price-value advantage becomes even more obvious when Ritz Tours' typical Beijing-Xi'An-Guilin-Shanghai China Scenic tour offer was put to the test. Not only Ritz Tours' contracted hotels on the itinerary are all of firmed top-notch 5-star caliber, the savings when booked before October 31, 2015 are at least over a thousand dollars less than those similar itineraries with airfares offered by Globus Cosmos, Wendy Wu Tours or Collette Tours.

    In a digital age when value and price comparison becomes an easy task for the public, an informed judgement to compare and choose similar tour products among reputable tour sellers is crucial in order to ensure no surprises during your vacations. Ritz Tours has shown that quality and value can indeed go hand-in-hand to benefit consumers exploring international escapades for next year - provided of course that they plan and book their trips early before the early booking season ends.

  • New Shopping Policy for China Programs


     Alhambra, CA (March 28, 2013) – Ritz Tours, the industry’s leader in escorted tours to China, has once again defined a new model for quality tours – shopping excursions will no longer be mandatory for guests, and all guests can have the recourse of a full shopping refund if they are unhappy with any purchase.


    While some travelers enjoy shopping, others may not. The newly crafted Ritz Tours Shopping Policy clearly states that shopping is optional and purchases are refundable.  Guests who do not wish to shop will have the choice to opt-out on shopping excursions.  For shopping enthusiasts, plenty of time will be allocated at the end of the sightseeing activities and/or on free days to visit the pre-designated stores that are verified by Ritz Tours for best shopping experience.  Guests will also benefit from the return policy and will have confidence that they will get their money back if they are dissatisfied with their purchases.


    Max Chew, Vice President of Ritz Tours explained, “We want our clients to have a peace of mind knowing that they will never be coerced into making unnecessary purchases at grossly inflated prices, that they have the option to opt out of shopping stops that we usually arrange at end of the sightseeing day or during free days, and that all guests can choose to rest at their own leisure in the comforts of their hotels instead of shopping.” He further emphasized, “We are empowering our clients in this decision making process on the ground, knowing that there have been rampant abuses on the shopping experience in cheap and dubious China tour packages that are getting more and more prevalent in the U.S. marketplace today.”


    He added, “Ritz Tours has decided on new ways to meet the needs of our every client. We want to stand apart with this new shopping policy in the interest of the consumers in order that they will have nothing but quality time spent in China for themselves.”


    The Ritz Tours Shopping Policy is not only ground-breaking in its suitability but also in its guarantee that all the guests’ needs are fulfilled at the end of the tour.  It provides guests a choice to participate in shopping excursions with the convenience of being escorted to quality pre-approved shopping locations, and the assurance that all guests will be pleased with their purchases.  There will no longer be any buyer’s remorse by following a simple return procedure.  In order to process an immediate full refund, guests on Ritz Tours’ China program can provide a receipt along with the merchandise to the tour guide before the end of the tour in China; or mail the unused merchandise back to the merchant with the proper receipt and in its original packaging within 14 days upon returning to the United States. The refund process will be completed by the merchant within 2 weeks after receiving the returned merchandise.
