A la carte lunch

When plan your lunches, we consider the balance of food quality, dining environment and tour convenience. We provide a la carte lunch in a local restaurant whenever possible. A la carte meal will give you an opportunity to eat at local restaurant, follow local customs, and taste local dishes. The a la carte allowance would be adequate for a decent meal in our recommended local restaurants, but varies from different restaurants and different cities. However in some remote regions where it’s simply hard to find a non-tourist restaurant, the meal could be arranged at a local tourist restaurant or a local family.

Dinners will not be included in your meal plan unless you have that requirement. Enjoying the local food could be one of your best experiences in China. This is why we provide you this flexibility of food choice. Your private guide will always give you good suggestions based on your preferences.

All of our travel guides in every destination are locals, who know the area well, they are very good at guiding you around and telling background stories of the tour sites, as well as showing you the secret spots for taking your best photos.

We enjoyed our visit to Guilin organized by Femando Shen of Odyssey Tours. The real highlight was the Li River cruise from Guilin to Yangshuo: we spent the entire 5 hour cruise on the upper d ck of the comfortable cruise boat enjoying the stunning scenery. This must be one of the most spectacular river cruises anywhere. Our hotel, The Golden Oriole, was excellent with a very good restaurant and in a great location. We very much enjoyed walking along the river and the lake from the hotel both in the early morning and at night to see all the activity there in this beautiful city park. Our guide Henry and driver were both very good, and we can highly recommend this company. We also visited the rice terraces at Longsheng, but found this was hardly worth the long drive to get there at this time of year.

My younger brother and I decided to visit China for 10 days. We are from Kenya and thanks to Rein, (who custom tailored our trip, was professional, helpful always plus I was delighted when he called to check up on us while touring) and the Odyssey team we had an AMAZING time. Guilin was absolutely STUNNING! Took my breath away. Our tour guide David had to be my favourite. Apart from being eloquent, he was like a long lost friend, especially to my younger brother. He made the trip fun and extremely interesting. I remember telling him I wished my teachers back in school were as interesting as he was! I'm back home recommending this awesome Tours to friends! Thank you for taking excellent care of us Rein, you are the best!

We certainly do have wonderful memories of our 12-day China tour organized by Mr. Reinself Wei, and his Odyssey staff and are grateful for making our visit perfect. Every detail was attended to and we are proud to recommend Odyssey as of the highest quality to visitors to China: our rating: A Plus, 10/10, and far exceeding expectations.
Guilin: The highlight of the visit was, of course, our boat trip on the iconic Li River. Our trip was well narrated, on a safe and clean vessel, with a good box lunch. We enjoyed roaming through West Street at Yangshou. The Hotel Shangri-La is luxurious, the staff hospitable. The breakfast buffet sumptuous. Our guide, John Zhang, was very friendly, informative and helpful; his driver excellent; their vehicle new and comfortable. We arrived here by bus and bullet train—both of which efficient, on time, and an excellent introduction to the People’s Republic. Next day to see beautiful Elephant Park and the City. John even helped get me a haircut. We ate dinner at the special weekend Hotel Shangri-La buffet, at Shang #1 Hunan restaurant (across from hotel) for second dinner and McFound’s for lunch: all delicious.
