We returned 2 weeks ago from an amazing trip to China, organised by China Odyssey. Everything worked so smoothly. We did the classic trip including Beijing, Xian, Chengdu, Yangtze river cruise, Shanghai and Suzhou. Highlights were as expected the Great wall, theTerracotta Army and the pandas. We also loved cycling the city walls in Xian and making dumplings. The food was great, we really enjoyed being taken to the local restaurants and trying new dishes at lunchtime. Many thanks to our wonderful guides: Dina in Beijing ( you took so many lovely photos and it's clear we were having an amazing time with you, as we have such natural smiles ,that you captured), Connie in Xian ( we loved Xian and loved the food), Ben in Chengdu ( you made the pandas such a pleasure, loved spending 2 days with you) and lastly Connie in Shanghai ( thanks for showing us Shanghai in some tough weather conditions, so glad the sun came out on the last day, thanks for your amazing company) I would definitely recommend this tour company, great communication and everything was delivered as promised or even better- thank you!

I used Odyssey for my bucket list trip to China and I would definitely recommend tour guide Amanda when in Beijing. Amanda went above and beyond the scope of her job to make sure me and my friend were comfortable in Beijing this being my first trip to China. Amanda even arranged a massage after a long day for us in our hotel room. Ask for Amanda and you will be satisfied.

They were great in helping me tailor make a package to fit my budget! So efficient and easy to deal with and provided a timely and trustworthy service. Our tour guide "Kevin" spoke good English and clarified all our doubts too. From the welcome to the farewell he provided a good service.... I would definitely recommend them to any one who is looking for quality service providers

China Odyssey arranged a fabulous 5-day tour in Beijing for our family of 3.
Our tour was customized and personalized for us by Shelly Qin who promptly replied to our email questions and helped us plan the trip.
Our tour guide was Tracy Liu, a perky petite lady who met us at the airport and flawlessly and professionally took care of us during our stay. She and Mr. Li, our driver, successfully navigated our way around the city and its environs. We enjoyed learning about her childhood and her life and family in Beijing. Each day we typically had one or two sites to visit, and Tracy selected nearby authentic Chinese restaurants that were very good. She ordered for us, based on our preferences and suggested places we could eat in the evenings that were close to our hotel. One of our favorites was Dadong and its Peking duck. On day 6 we had an early morning departure and Tracy and Mr. Li got us to the airport with time to spare, and Tracy helped us navigate our way from the check-in counters to security. She was very knowledgeable and any family who gets her assigned as their tour guide will enjoy being with her immensely. Her knowledge is only surpassed by her energy, which is infectious.

Our guide, Lucas, met us as we cleared customs at PVG airport and took us and our luggage to our waiting vehicle to go to our hotel. He ensured that we were checked in before leaving. The next morning he collected us, took us to the train station for our trip to Suzhou. Again he briefed us on what to expect on the platform and train and when to get off. He remained with us until we were through the ticket turnstiles. He met us on our return and provided a one day tour of Shanghai as arranged through COT. Lucas was an outstanding guide. If we were to visit China again, I would ask COT to arrange the entire trip. It was so nice to have our own guide and to create our own pace. In retrospect, the pricing would not have been much different.

After a Viking cruise/tour, we spent three additional days in Beijing and had prearranged with COT to see those stops that we were not seeing on the basic tour. Our guide Emma was delightful. Nothing was too much or question too hard. COT had created a day-by-day plan that was perfectly paced. We asked about seeing an acrobatic show and she arranged it. When it was lunch time, she asked us what type of meal we wanted and then found the right place. We had to insist that she join us because we enjoyed her company. If we were to visit China again, I would ask COT to arrange the entire trip. It was so nice to have our own guide and to create our own pace. In retrospect, the pricing would not have been much different.

China Odyssey Tours did a fantastic job in creating a 5-day-tour in Beijing which fitted perfectly to our needs (we had a baby and didn't want to do too long tours per day). Everything was greatly organised, the driver and the guide were always on time and helped us to get the max out of it. They were also very flexible when it rained one day and we had to stop - they arranged that we could see the sights we missed due to the rain on another day. All in all a perfect experience, highly recommended!!!

We have been to 35 different countries and NONE have been as enjoyable and well planned as our trip to China. Shelly was a great planner and offered many suggestions to enjoy China more. My only regret is I never got to personally meet and thank her. Almost always the tour guides and drivers were very good and gave that extra help and attention.

I must first compliment Carla, our guide from Odyssey Tours. Carla was knowledgeable about the history of all we saw, informed & willing to answer a myriad of questions. China is actually very different from the impression most of have in The U.S.A. I loved hearing about the evolution of the Imperial City, witnessing the beauty and majesty of the city of Beijing. Carla suggested that we take the chair lift to the quieter section of The Great Wall, what a brilliant idea. Although I had never skied & a bit scary, it was fine. The vistas are magnificent, I took a video of the climb, so my family would believe that I was there! We were told about the best Peking Duck restaurant & the food and decor were just that. The service however was not, servers had no knowledge of English, not good at accommodating Westerners. When making reservations, ask in advance for a server who can speak English.We enjoyed Tiananmen Square, The Forbidden City, Palace Museum, beautiful roses & other flowers everywhere in Tiantan Park, Drum & Bell Towers & The Hutong among my favorite historical sights, truly not to be missed. Thank you Carla & China Odyssey Tours for this extraordinary experience. It could not have been possible without your special guides.
