Deluxe Hotel


Normally China Odyssey Tours provides two meals each day: Breakfast and Lunch. You will have the freedom to make your own dinner choice.


It is normally served at the hotel where you stay. Depending on the hotel, the breakfast would be in western style, Chinese style, or a combination.

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.

Your own dinner choice

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.

If you have certain food allergies or special requirements such as vegetarian food, let us know. We will do our best to accommodate your needs.

Private Guide & Transfer

You will have a private tour guide, private driver, and an air-conditioned vehicle escorting you at every destination you travel. This will provide you with maximized personal care, security, and flexibility.

All of our tour guides are qualified professionals and registered English Speaking Tourist Guides in China who are reassessed annually. All of our tour vehicles are clean and in excellent condition, manned with licensed safe drivers.

Private Tour Guide

You will always be greeted punctually on arrival at each destination airport. At every departure, your guide will stay at your side until you have checked in and passed through the security checkpoint.

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.

When changing your itinerary is needed due to unexpected reasons, your private tour guides will be more than accommodating in suggesting alternatives to ensure that you have a wonderful experience.

Private Transportation

With our comfortable and safe private transportation, your tour will be more relaxing and less tiresome, keeping you in the best spirits to make the most of your experience in China.

In every destination visited, your vehicle is air conditioned, clean, and expertly maintained. Your private driver is licensed, insured, and very experienced.

To maximize your comfort, we use vehicles with extra space for you and your luggage. Depending on how many are traveling together, we generally use sedans or mini vans (7 seats) for 4 people or less, large vans or small coaches (12-22 seats) for 5-12 people, medium coaches (33 – 37 seats) for 13 – 25 people, and large coaches (45 seats over) for more than 25 people.

We had a great time on our Guilin trip. With wonderful memories of people whom we met and places we visited. Our guided trip with Odyssey Tours was well-planned. We went to Longsheng Rice Terraces and stayed in a most interesting hotel (right in the heart of the rice terraces).

Owen, our tour guide and Tom Zhou, our travel consultant (from day 1) were fantastic with their customer service and look after us very well.

Will certainly recommend Tom Zhou of Odyssey. Keep up the good work.

I have travelled Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos early 2016 and, later ,Guilin, China. All my travel has been arranged by Alick of Odyssey Tours and has been great. I just tell Alick where I want to go and from then I'm advised as to whether my choices are viable. My guides have all been excellent and very informative as well as having a great sense of humour and much patience. Eric, my guide in Guilin, was especially tolerant since every turn we made encountered another thousand stone steps upwards!!
Unfortunately I have to save money for my next venture with Odyssey. Hope it does not take too long.

Everything about our experience with China Odyssey Tours in the summer of 2016 was wonderful. All the advance planning we did with our consultant, Alex Quan, was perfect, making suggestions and tailoring activities to our wishes. Our friendly and knowledgeable tour guide, William Liu, could not have been more accommodating. He went above and beyond to make our time in Guangxi enjoyable, as did our driver, who patiently waited for us at all the locations we visited.The only advice I would give is to let visitors know ahead of time that Gmail (Google), Facebook, and YouTube are not available in China so you must make alternate plans to communicate outside the country as needed.I am most happy to recommend China Odyssey Tours and would use them again.

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.

We had a 15 day custom tour to Guangzhou, Shangri-la, Lijiang, Guilin, Xiamen, Wuyishan arranged by Roger and we had a terrific time. We had "cobbled together" a range of things we wanted to do from various tour companies and Roger sorted that into a tour for us. All accommodation was great as were the attractions we wanted to see. The tour guides in each city were helpful and knowledgeable (except Guangzhou, and we gave feedback to China Odyssey about this). Our tour co-coordinator (Roger) had a bit of a tough time as airlines (internal) kept cancelling or reinstating flights so there were schedule changes as we went, meaning also our itinerary had to be juggled, but all were handled well. Roger was easy to keep in touch with while in China via text or phone (we bought a local sim card with the help of our tour guide) so we would recommend Roger and China Odyssey to anyone contemplating a tour in China. Possibly not the cheapest, but great service.
