I am forwarding this review on behalf of my daughter Alanna Fallon, who organised an 8 day tour of China with herself,my son and myself as a Xmas gift. We did the tour in Oct 2016. It was a dream come true for me and I know my daughter and son enjoyed it as much a I did.I have to say, dealing with Maple Zheng made it all so stress free, she was so considerate and helpful on every detail. I have to say the whole experience was very professional. The tour guides and drivers were wonderful and a credit to your company. If I have any criticism it would have to be the visits to the stores etc. which I found a bit pressurising . Other than that I would definitely recommend Odyssey tours. Thank you Maple for a wonderful experience.Elizabeth McGuinness.

Dan & I were fortunate to have found Maple at Odyssey Tours to book our China trip as she was not only accommodating and knowledgeable but detailed and forthcoming with ideas all of which made our trip with our friends that much more enjoyable.Because of this experience, we have now finalized plans with Maple of Odyssey Tours to travel Vietnam, Bangkok, and Hong Kong spring of 2017.

In April 2016, my daughter and I went on a two-week tour of China. It included five different cities and a Yangtze cruise. I emailed Odyssey Tours in February of that year and was assigned a travel agent named Maple Zheng. I consider myself very lucky to have gotten her as my personal travel agent and advisor.With her help, I was able to personalize one of Odyssey's tours, removing some attractions/highlights that I was not interested in doing, and adding others that I did want to do. She was always prompt in getting back to me and always had wonderful suggestions when I needed them. Even after we arrived in China, she messaged me to make sure that our trip was going smoothly and even was able to book an upgrade for us on the Yangtze cruise at the last minute.I would recommend Odyssey Tours to anyone visiting China, and particularly my travel agent, Maple Zheng.

A friend and I traveled to China in June, 2016. It was absolutely fabulous. Maple was our travel consultant. She created a tour to fulfill my dreams. I provided Maple with what I wanted to see and experience and the dates. Maple did all the rest. My itinerary included trains, planes, and autos. In sixteen days, my tour of China was perfect. With Maple's expertise, I was able to experience even the unusual visitor spots like Kaipai. Maple made everything happen. She selected great guides and drivers too.

We just returned from an 8 day private tour in China with China Odyssey and would highly recommend them.
Our trip started in Zhengzhou (Henan Province), where we visited the Shaolin Monastery, Luoyang, and Yuntaishan mountain. From Zhengzhou, we flew to Guilin and spent our remaining 4 days in Guilin and Yangshuo.
Michelle, our guide in Henan, was very knowledgable about Chinese history but was not the best with handling our meals. Our diet restrictions were ignored and we were still hungry after our last meal that she ordered. Meals are a huge part in a memorable and enjoyable experience~especially while on vacation. This is why we prefer private tours over group tours.
However, Jessica our guide in Guilin was awesome! She was always prompt, knowledgable, has a great sense of humor, and professional. The "little" things that she did separates her from your typical tour guide. Right away, we noticed the difference between our guides from the two provinces. AND, we ate well during our stay in Guilin and Yangshuo! I would highly recommend Jessica if you plan to visit Guilin!
Upon returning from our trip, we emailed Odyssey in regards to our dissatisfaction with our meals in Henan Province. Odyssey promptly refunded our entire Henan meal allowances without my asking. Now that's great customer service!

All our local guides were very good, with some excellent ! We have other Asian countries on our bucket list, and will certainly use Maple and Odyssey again.Highly recommended to any prospective traveller!

Just returned from a trip to China and Tibet. We had a great time. We started with communicating with Maple Zheng by e-mails. We went back and forth on different things we wanted to see starting in Hong Kong, we wanted to see the city from Victoria Peak, wanted to see the largest Buddha statue in the world, bird alley, harbor cruise. We wanted to take a cruise on the Yangtze River, to see the Panda reserve, the Terra cotta Warriors, the Great Mosque in Xian, take a bike ride around the City Walls in Xian. We wanted to visit the Great Wall, Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City. We wanted to see Potala Palace in Lhasa, Tibet as well as the other landmarks in Lhasa. We did all of this and more including getting dressed and our face painted for an opera in Chengdu. What a great trip and with the help of the Odyssey team, we had a stress-free experience. Thanks to all of the guides, drivers and to Maple for making this a such a memorable experience. We will be taking more trips with the help of Odyssey. Joe & Liz Barco

We visited Xian over two days as part of a 17 day trip to China with Odyssey Tours. Having a private guide and driver for all except 5 days in Shanghai, where we have friends, made travel stress free and very enjoyable. Our tour had been previously been planned in most helpful consultation with our travel consultant, Maple Zheng. In our time in Xian we saw the Terracotta Warriors, the Old City Walls, Muslim Street and the Small Wild Goose Pagoda. There is more of interest in this historic city and on any return visit I would spend longer here. We were lucky with both the weather and the crowds. It was not uncomfortably hot and the end of the summer holiday period meant that visitor numbers were much reduced. There was very little queuing to see the Terracotta Warriors and we could pause at whatever display took our interest. An absolute highlight was the opportunity to meet the farmer who discovered the Terracotta Warriors in 1974. He has now achieved celebrity status and both signs books and has his photograph taken with visitors three days each week. Our tour guide, Kathy Wang, took us to see him and also told us a lot about her life in China. Kathy put a lot of effort into making our visit to Xian informative as well as fun.Generally the tour guides were excellent and the only way of getting to know local people if you do not speak Chinese.

I only have positive things to say about China Odyssey tours. Planning our trip was a breeze with them and everything went smoothly, even when our flight out of Guilin was delayed 5 hours. The guide in Xian was still there waiting for us when we finally arrived. Guilin was definitely a highlight. Our guide was Jessica and she was great. Very friendly and knowledgeable, she was a pleasure to be with but was also great at giving you your own space. The scenery in Guilin is breathtaking! I recommend going and I also recommend China Odyssey Tours.
