number of Chinese people who visited the US last year according to Guo.
“It is expensive, but those taking such tours are usually rich people either on vacation or on business trips,” he said.
Guo said they started the business last May by posting their “customized tour” service on Qunar and Ctrip, the leading travel-booking service websites in China.
“We gave out survey forms to the potential customers, asking what they were interested in. Some of them had heard of shooting or hunting activities before they came to the US,” he said. “Most of them are looking for something more novel.”
As the Chinese gained more experience as international tourists they tend to seek new and enjoyable ways to explore the world, explained Guo.
Last year, more than 2 million Chinese people visited the US, a 21 percent rise year on year.
