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.

We were 3 parents, 2 young adults and a teen and there couldn't be a better way to experience China as an English-speaking tourist. Our Xi'an guide was Kathy who was quite helpful. The price for 6 people for 2 weeks was quite reasonable -- I imagine that having a guide and vehicle for 2 people wouldn't be as good of a value.
I admit I was hesitant to plan our entire visit via an internet tour agency based in China, but it couldn't have turned out better.
We spent 2 days in Xi'an using Odyssey tours for both days and for all but 3 days of a 2 week trip. Their tag-line "you are not alone with Odyssey" could not be more true. Our tour consultant was Alex-- 10 stars!
Tips: make your plans in advance via email-- which we did-- much better to have your itinerary set than try to make stops on the fly.
check out the hotels you are booked into on your own-- they will use hotels you request if you have specific requirements or want to avoid smokey holes (check the trip advisor reviews).

Odyssey Tours organized this trip and we visited Jinmao Tower, Shanghai Museum, Yu garden and market and Bund. Our guide, Portia, described the history so well of each places. We asked questions and she answered them all with a smile. She made our trip enjoyable. She asked our choice of food for lunch and took us there and ordered. Portia also served the famous Shanghai noodle to us. She also stayed with us until we checked in to the hotel and at the airport. Tom Zhao, tour operator from Odyssey, chose the right people for guide and driver.

We had a short period of time to explore a fascinating city. Avril, our guide did an outstanding job introducing us to the highlights of the city. She was knowledgeable and personable and definitely made our visit worthwhile. Roger our first contact with Odyssey tours was very responsive and made for a pleasant experience and ensured that everything ran like clockwork. I highly recommend Odyssey tours.

She was so helpful throughout our stay in Shanghai, Avril and our driver Mr Chin took very good care of us. I would highly recommend China Odyssey and when I return to Asia will be using them again!

We just completed a four day tour with three kids and grandparents. Our tour guide was Avril. We had a great time with specific activities for the kids. They enjoyed a tea ceremony and insect Museum in particular. The pace was good and tour guide was excellent. Providing enough information to keep the family and kids interested but not too much to bore them. However she had the extra information if questioned.

We enjoyed the fact that this was not a constant barrage of selling and commission seeking.

We will be back to enjoy some other cities with this agency. Four days was not enough but gave us a good overview.

Hi, China Odyssey are fantastic to deal with. I dealt with Fermando, tour consultant, I used to get into work at 8am and there would be an updated email from him, I felt he became a very close friend through our correspondence.
