Travelsphere - I went on a 11 day trip to China with them about 5 years ago and it was great. The good news is they are a reliable company who offer excellent value for money and I'm sure you'll have a wonderful time.

One thing though - at 25 years of age I'll hazard a guess and say you'll most likely be the youngest person on the trip. Their trips are very much in the "jolly coach trip" mould and, as the value for money factor really is excellent, you'll probably have a full coach load of some 40-50 people.
Not a problem in itself - as I said, my trip was excellent - but something to consider as an alternative would be a small exporatory group tour..i.e. maybe 12-16 people in a chartered minibus with a company like {for example} ExploreWorldwide, Exodus or Travelbag Adventures {again, all companies I have travelled with before and can vouch for personally and ALL offer a guananteed share arrangement if you are travelling as a single person}.
The average age of the people for any trip with these companies is likely to be significantly closer to your age!
