Usually good 4-star hotels are adopted or boutique hotels at request. Hotels best available will be arranged if no qualified choice, e.g. in remote area.

Multiple restaurants on site with extensive menus for choice, room service available 24/7, fitness center and concierge service round out the experience. Hotels best available will be arranged if no qualified choice, e.g. in remote area.

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.

From the moment I commenced communication with Tom Zhou from COT there was a feeling I was with the right person and organisation. He advised me from the beginning as to how to plan our family holiday of 6 people. We all had different interests and somehow Tom and his team of Richard and Michael and drivers engineered a exciting holiday for us. We are not the sort of family that likes organised tours with alot of other people as we like to change things as we go. If we are tired we may want to come home early and if enjoying something we want to stay longer. All this was taken care of and with little fuss. The hotels that were suggested were great especially the Raffles Beijing and any restaurants and shows we wanted to go to were organised on the spot. China is such a large and complicated country I was not happy about trying to organise it myself, so by having Tom and his team help me made it a stressless holiday. of one week Thank you COT The Robinsons.

My companion and I took a sixteen day tour with Odyessy arranged by Mr Femando Chen, operating out of Guilin. This tour he arranged from the details provided by me to suit exactly the requirements. There was nothing Mr Chen wouldn't do to show us the very best that China has to offer and I was staggered by the remarkable low costs involved.
From the best hotels in Shanghai onwards, to the careful selection of English speaking guides and the entry to all the major attractions, Mr Chen came up trumps. Every e-Mail that I sent was answered immediately and with utmost curtesy.
I cannot speak highly enough of this company and will strongly recommend it to other prospective China wanderers

Our holiday to China was amazing, we had a trip of a lifetime. Our guide Richard of Odyssey was so helpful and knowledgeable. He and the driver Mr Lee made getting around Beijing to see The Great Wall, Forbidden City and The Summer Palace most memorable and would highly recommend these tour guides. With many thanks,

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).
