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!

We just finished a 55 day tour if China. Maple Zheng was our consultant, and her communication and organisation could not be faulted. There was a highlight in every location. 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

I cannot recommend Odyssey Tours enough. All of our tour guides for our 11 day China trip were spectacular with fantastic itineraries. All of the drivers were very safe and expert drivers. We felt very comfortable and safe the entire time.
David in Guilin is guide that my kids would want as an uncle. He was solicitous and genuinely concerned when my son was ill, even tentatively arranging alternate transportation from Yangshuo in case my son could not continue the day trip. He was flexible in changing plans depending on the whim of the 4 children in our extended family, and allowed for plenty of 'down time' to prevent meltdowns for the children! He took us on an unforgettable bike rike around Yangshuo with 4 children between the ages of 5 and 8, and had a great sense of humor about it, even when it turned out that his bike had a flat tire.
You cannot go wrong with Odyssey! (at least, not as long as they still continue to hire guides to this caliber!) Will use them exclusively the next time we visit China.

Jim in Chengdu was a standout. So kind to our children and would immediately take their hands crossing the street or in a crowd. Spontaneously bought a cake and crown for my nephew who turned 5 during the trip. Spent more time than he should have in helping my brother in law and me find a laundry service as this was our halfway point of the trip! Great at adjusting the schedule at a minute's notice. On the day we were supposed to go to the Big Buddha after seeing the pandas (with NO CROWDS or lines since we left the hotel early as per his recommendation), it rained and the traffic was a standstill. He changed our itinerary on the fly (after consulting with us) to visit the 2000 year old Dujiangyan irrigation system, which we all enjoyed tremendously. Our kids would love it if Jim was their uncle!
