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.

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.

Shanghai was the last city we visited with my teenage daughter on our 12 day China tour. Jie Jie was our very sweet guide, and she discussed the itinerary with us and gave us options of when we wanted to go to which attractions. She let us spend as little or as much time as we wanted to at each place and offered to help us with shopping and finding anything we might want on our last stop in China. Yu Garden and Market were beautiful. The Pearl Tower was a neat modern experience with our trip up the tower to where we could walk out on the glass floor and see the streets and cars far below. The History Museum was in that building as well and had interesting wax figures and sets displaying some significant historical events of Shanghai. After our tour of the city during the day, Jie Jie gave me instructions on where to walk to return in the evening to the Bund where I was able to catch the sunset reflecting off of the buildings and then photograph the beautiful, distinctive skyline of lights of Shanghai.

A word about China Odyssey's dedication to the quality of our experience on our trip was that during our visit, we had an incident at the hotel where we were staying and the hotel said we would incur an extra charge on our room before we left. We did not think the charge was fair, and our guide Jie Jie was very much an advocate in standing up for us and speaking with the hotel manager. They finally agreed to lower the charge, but China Odyssey was very gracious in offering to cover it so that we would not have to pay anything extra. We are definitely thankful for all they did from planning a wonderful tour for us, providing great personalized service at each city, and going the extra mile when an unexpected circumstance occurred. We definitely recommend China Odyssey for their wonderful, professional, caring staff and hope to travel with them again soon. --Victoria

We only spent one full day in Shanghai, but could have spent several more. Shaghai is a city that brings both the new and old together. Quite a remarkable location. Thanks to Odyssey Tours for arranging our visit to Shanghai.

This is the second time we have booked a tour with China Odssey (My Odyssey Tours) and both times our experience with them has been wonderful. Miranda Zhang in their Guilin office in China organised both trips for us. I had a very specific idea of the places I wanted to go to, the sights I wanted to see and the accomodation I wanted to stay in, so Miranda was very good at incorporating all my ideas into the trips to make them fabulous! If anything arose like problems with flights I had booked myself through a different travel agent, she was there to help and do what she could. We knew throughout the trip that Miranda was just a quick phone call away if there was anything we needed and that was very reassuring. As for the places we went to, well both trips were to China. During our first trip 2 years ago we saw: (Shanghai), Guilin and Yangshuo, Chengdu, Xian and Beijing. This time we wanted to visit places with natural beauty so we decided on some mountainous areas like Zhangjiajie (famous because the scenery featured in the film Avatar), Mount Huangshan and Tibet. In each place we had an excellent guide and driver who brought us from place to place, booked tickets for us, helped us order food in restaurants etc. The experience was completely stress free and it is a wonderful way to travel. Mandarin Chinese is a hard language to learn so knowing that your guide is there to interpret for you is great. It also takes the stress out of trying to work out what ticket for entrance to an attraction you should buy and trying to explain that to someone behind the counter in Chinese etc. I am generally a very independent person and like working things out on my own but I really feel that we couldn't have done this trip without our guides and without China Odyssey tours. Even purely from the point of view of time, knowing you don't have to wait for a bus etc. and that your driver will take you to the next attraction means that you can fit in a lot more in each day. I would highly recommend My Odyssey Tours to other travellers. We booked a second time with them because we were so impressed with our first tour, and if we were going back to this part of the world would without hesitation book with them again. It is often hard on the internet to know what tour operators to trust, especially if you are planning a big tour so I am very glad we stumbled upon China Odyssey during our online research.

We had a 3 night stopover in Shanghai as the last part of our China Trip organised by Odyssey Tours who were fantastic. Bonnie Yu and driver picked us up from the Airport and had us checked into Sunrise on the Bund which was a great hotel, but unfortunately the location could be better. Our high lights were the Yu Gardens & Yu Market, the Financial Tower lookout, National History Museum, the French Quarter and then a long stroll along the Bund. Bonnie was really great and gave us lots of time to stroll around the different places so never felt rushed. She was very knowledgeable and had very good English. She spent a lot of time trying to trace down a particular gift we had been looking for in Tourist shops whilst we were having a nice refreshing cuppa and beers. We also did a day trip to Nanjing via bullet train so Bonnie was up early to get us on our way then to to pick us up again very late in the day. Wished we had more time in Shanghai so perhaps there will need to be another trip. Well worth the visit. Thanks Bonnie and Odyssey Tours for a well organised and enjoyable Tour.

We spent nearly two weeks in China, and one major highlight was the guided tour of Shanghai with guide Apple Shen and driver Mr. Chen. Apple was very likable and informative, full of facts about both the modern Shanghai and its history. Mr. Chen was always incredibly friendly and good-natured, and very good at his job. During the trip, certain members of our party were trying to learn Mandarin Chinese, and both Mr. Chen and Apple gave special attention to helping them. If you are even considering this tour, I strongly recommend that you make a special effort to take the tour with Apple as your guide and Mr. Chen as your driver.
