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 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.

Did a two day private tour of Shanghai as part of my best of China Odyssey 13 day tour. Highlights were Yuyuan market (for the amazing architecture and just wandering around), the Jade Buddha temple which was also very impressive, (not Buddhist but the two jade Buddhas are very moving and worth seeing), and I enjoyed walking around both the French section and the Bund. I had Bonnie as a guide for my private tour and she was amazing. We talked a lot, she took me to local places to eat, and to get a massage, organized tickets for an acobatic show at the Shanghai Center (which was spectacular - great combination of centuries old acrobatics and modern bike and motorbike feats - not to be missed). I'm an experienced traveler, but Shanghai, like much of China, can be overwhelming to a non-Chinese speaker (perhaps to everyone) trying to experience a lot in a short period of time. Having a guide such a Bonnie really helped personalize the experience and made seeing the highlights, accessible. For example, on my last day, we made up an itinerary and went to a couple of places of personal significance (a church and a hospital) as well as the top- of the television tower to see all the new sky-scrapers. Being from Minneapolis, it blew me away to see what a country can do which is investing heavily in the future through its infrastructure. I saw so much more than I would have on my own, but was also able to tailor the experience to what I was most interested in. Whether you do the whole of China tour (which was great) or only a 1-2 day tour in Shanghai, I would highly recommend a China Odyssey private tour (especially if you are alone like I was, but it would be perfest for a couple, traveling as a family with kids, if you have concerns about jetlag hitting you on a tour or being stuck on a bus taking you to souvenir shops and the like). I felt the private tour enabled me to visit the highlights, to avoid the things I wasn't interested in, but also to prioritize how long I spent somewhere, when to drive or walk, when to eat etc, which really made all the difference to my overall enjoyment. They provided bottled water and the van was modern and clean, driving a little hair-raising (is all over China) but driver was excellent. And if you can ask for a guide, I would recommend Bonnie as outstanding. Not only did she speak good English and was happy to answer all my questions (I'm a professor so I was interested in learning about her life and experience), she went above and beyond, asking me about my life and culture in America. While she was always professional and courteous, it quickly felt more like a friendship than a tour, and its clear she really enjoys her job. This was a perfect end to an amazing trip.

Our guide Megan was patient, tolerant and knowledgeable. We asked to change some of our itinerary which she did graciously. The Bund at night is not to be missed.

We had three wonderful days in Shanghai guided by the wonderful Alice from Odyssey Tours. This was the start of an over 3 week China trip for us and Alice was there at the airport after our long flights from Australia. She was calmness personified. Two couples in our group and we all impressed with Alice's knowledge and firmness in dealing with hotels, sellers and others to make sure we had the best treatment and the best deals. She was the perfect introduction to China, bright and efficient and pleasant as well. Alice set the high standard for all our other guides across China to measure up to.

Many thanks Alice!

We spent the last two days of our 12 days in China in Shanghai. Leila, our trip coordinator from Odyssey tours was amazing. Due to the closing of the Shanghai airport, Leila rerouted us to another airport 2 hours outside of Shanghai and found a driver to pick us up and drive to Shanghai. She called us several times to make sure we were o.k. Her thoroughness was greatly appreciated.
In Shanghai, our guide was so accommodating as we changed the timing and part of our itinerary. At night you must walk The Bund. Truly a visual experience.

We arrived in Shanghai for the last leg of our tour having visited Beijing and Xian
(see China Odyssey tours for reviews on each)
Following our Yangtze river cruise we were scheduled to fly from Yichang but due to thick fog all flights were cancelled, we started to panic as our onward international flight was due to leave Shanghai the following evening, within a couple of hours Odyssey tours had booked us on the bullet train (which was an added bonus) down to Wuhan where we we rescheduled on to a flight to Shanghai.
Very impressed by the back up from Odyssey if we were at home we had have been delayed for a couple of days and missed out international flight!!
We were met by our guide Portia Huang who had diligently waited for our delayed arrival and then took us by private transport to our hotel.
Our hotel the Sunrise on the Bund which as with all the hotels on our tour was excellent.
Due to our onward international flight schedule we had to cut our trip to Shanghai short by a day.
Portia went out of her way to make sure we visited all the sites on our itinerary, the beauty of a personal tour consisting of just me and my wife is that you don't waste time hanging about for other people at sites that don't overly interest you so that you can spend time at sites that do and also fit more in during the day.
Portia and our driver used their local knowledge to navigate around the city to maximise our time.
Again Portia as with previous guides was very knowledgeable about her city and following a full day we were taken to the airport, and checked in with no problems assisted by Portia.

Reviewed July 26, 2015

Stay in Beijing and the surrounding area was very interesting. Very good organization of the day. Carl conveyed a lot of interesting information about visited sites. An interesting experience was a visit to the Great Wall without the presence of other tourists - the perfect choice was visiting the ...
