For a good number of years Neil & I have been travelling with CR McPhail, on tours that have taken us to many parts of the globe. Being farmers ourselves and leading extremely busy lives we have thoroughly enjoyed joining tours with likeminded people. Seeing cutting edge technology, cultural and scenic hot spots, all this and being truly spoilt at the end of a busy day with fabulous accommodation and meals. Often quaint old towns with plenty of areas for me to explore with my camera.
Our tours have always had a good balance of sightseeing, history and technical component. We have been places we would never get to travelling on our own. There is nothing better than having everything organised for us so we can sit back, relax and enjoy every day’s new experiences. We can’t wait for our next adventure!
China for Fonterra Shareholders! A unique opportunity to see and learn about Fonterra’s investment in China. Visit one of the Fonterra dairy farms and meet with key Fonterra staff in Beijing and Shanghai. Also participate in our longest running tour (since 1996), which has never ceased to amaze travellers on this exciting adventure.
Explore China to see some major agricultural developments across this vast country and marvel at the extraordinary feats of engineering and ingenuity that have defined this ancient culture. Visit many of the cultural highlights including the Terracotta Warriors and Horses in Xian, The Great Wall of China, the Forbidden City and enjoy a luxury Yangtze River Cruise. Stops on the side of the road to talk with local farmers are a unique feature of this tour. Be entertained with the spectacular Tang Dynasty show and an incredible Acrobatic display.
Extend your tour on a Luxury 5-star cruise on the Yangtze River through the extraordinary Three Gorges Dam Project – one of the world’s greatest engineering feats. Visit the famous Dazu Rock Carvings east of Chongqing city, technical visits in Guilin, cruise the beautiful Li River and see China’s Giant Pandas at Chongqing Zoo.
