Low Price GuaranteeNo Booking Fees
There’s more to Harbin than the celebrated Ice Festival Harbin—but with English rarely spoken and a limited subway system, the city is hard to get around independently. Discover Harbin’s highlights with a private guide on this fully customizable tour that’s perfect for first-time visitors. Upgrade to include entrance fees, a Chinese lunch, and a private car.
  • Discover Harbin at your own pace and in your own style with a private guide
  • See Siberian tigers, St. Sophia Cathedral, and Zhongyang Pedestrian Street
  • Customize your itinerary to suit your individual interests
  • Upgrade to include entrance fees, lunch, and private car
What to Expect
As this is a private tour, you’re free to customize your own itinerary: just ask your guide if there are specific attractions you’d like to see. A typical day, however, begins with a trip to the Siberian Tiger Park, followed by a visit to the indoor version of Ice and Snow World to enjoy a miniature version of the annual ice festival. After lunch, learn about Harbin’s Russian heritage as you tour the Volga Manor, a recreated Russian village. Then explore the city center and see St. Sophia Cathedral, the Russian-era church, and Zhongyang Pedestrian Street, with its retro houses. Finally, stroll down to the Songhua River—depending on the time of year, the sunsets can be beautiful.

We actually did two days with the Harbin Private Tour Guide. Our first time in China and going to Harbin as part of it in the coldest part of the season to see the Harbin Snow and Ice Festive was a bit intimidating, to say the least. I emailed them all of our points of interest
