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.

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.

Wow, what an amazing private 20 day tour China. I could not have asked for anything more. Avril was our guide in Shanghai and was amazing. Her knowledge of the city of the city was fantastic! 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.

This was our first trip out of the country, so I was very nervous about finding my way around a country where I couldn't speak the language. I am so glad that I found China Odyssey Tours. From the very beginning, it was an absolute joy planning this trip.

We spent three days in Shanghai with Avril and Mr Wen who were so nice and gave us a great introduction to China. Avril was an absolute wealth of knowledge and Mr Wen always greeted us with a friendly smile throughout the day and never complained about staying late to pick us up from the Acrobat Show. Our consultant, Reinself Wei, did a wonderful job of organizing the itinerary so we were able to see a lot of the city in the short time we had in Shanghai. We loved seeing the Yu Gardens and the city view from the Jin Mao Tower. We never felt like we were rushed through the sites, and they were always happy to give us more time if we wanted to stay somewhere a little longer. The only thing I was a little sad about was that we visited the TianZiFang early in the morning and most of the stores weren't open yet. I would have liked going into some of the stores, but we enjoyed window shopping instead. The hotel we stayed in was very nice and the food at all of the restaurants was good. I highly recommend taking the Maglev train to/from the airport.

Our recent 11 day trip to China was the second time using Odyssey Tours in Asia. It was equally as good as the first time! All internal travel, hotel and tour arrangements were made by the company and everything worked flawlessly. The guide in Shanghai spoke good English and was very knowledgeable about the City and the general history of the country. She gave us two recommendations for dinner, both were excellent. I would have no hesitation in recommending this tour company and will be using them again when next in Asia.

Our Tour guide took us several places. Accross the river there are European style buildings and the promanade was so good. You can have the view of modern Shanghai. We were at Jade Buddha Temple. The guide was young, knew the city well, always smiling. We stayed at Grand Hyatt Hotel in Pudong. I could see the whole city from my window. Thanks
