Normally China Odyssey Tours provides two meals each day: Breakfast and Lunch. You will have the freedom to make your own dinner choice.

Breakfast

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.

We are currently in the process of booking our second tour with Reinself Wei and are getting great service from him, as we did with our first tour. Reinself is very responsive to any questions or issues we have. Our first tour of the Guilin area was well organized and we appreciated the responsiveness of both Reinself and of our local tour guide. This time we are going to Tibet and to Chengdu and have all the confidence that everything will be as well organized as our first tour with Odyssey Tours

Loved this visit, and our guide, CODY, from Odyssey Tour was just the perfect match. He was knowledgeable, discrete, friendly, polite, just a joy to be with. Together we experienced the Pandas, wonderful temples and great times in Chengdu. Walking through the markets or hiking in nature...a great great place to see...very different from any other city in the east...Chengdu in my opinion is a must for a visitor . .make sure not to miss mount Qing Chen...

Our first time with China Odyssey was for Xian tour 2014, Sept. Chengdu in March 2016 is our 2nd time so that should speak for itself. The company is reliable, reputable and will accommodate our requests to the best of their ability. Planning is a coordinate effort as it was a private tour with special itinerary which was suggested and adjusted to suit us. Our tour consultant, Andy, was very patient and tried to accommodate us in our planning.
Chengdu was a memorable trip indeed. We are considering Jiuzhaigo end of next year and will give China Odyssey our plans and hope we are able to make it.

to see Chengdu one really need at least 3 nights. we only had 2 and one day was spent going to LeShan the big buddha. it was very inspiring and lovely. we enjoyed the Wenshu Teahouse and their vegetarian buffet, the hotpot restaurant just around the corner recommended by our wonderful guide, Jim Xu. he was such a nice young fellow that I wanted to take him home! Jim showed us how to order and cook in the hotpot. He is also fluent in English and knowledgeable as this is where he grew up.I would go back to see other parts of Chengdu.its a lovely city. Thank you Jim!
