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.

This is my first time using tour group in Shanghai even thought I have been to Shanghai many times for business trip. Since I was taking my parents (80 years old!) to Shanghai with me for their first visit to China, I have opt for private tour and sent an email to enquire about the tour. All the queries are promptly follow up, with all details explanation and even sent me an email few days prior to travel date with details information about who will pick me up with phone number, etc. Airport pick up and entire tour is well plan, very professional, we do not encounter any issue at all. I will fully recommend them to anyone who want to visit China.

We just returned from a one week tour of China (Shanghai, Xi'an & Beijing) with Odyssey Tours. In all three cities the drivers and tour guides were wonderful. As for the advance organization of the tour we were very pleased with the experience. Leila responded quickly each time we contacted her and our requests to change the itinerary were graciously accommodated. We plan to travel in Asia again in the future and will definitely consider using Odyssey.

Odyssey Tours organized our first trip to China. Our Odyssey Travel Consultant Alick Peng, organized a 10 day tour through Shanghai, Xian and Guilin. This included meals, entrance fees, English speaking guides and transportation. We had a worry free trip. Our travel itinerary from Alick was comprehensive and followed exactly so. All the guides and drivers were knowledgeable and professionals. Make sure your budget is flexible to include tips (for guides and drivers), theater productions and souvenirs It all adds up). Overall it was a carefree trip.

Travel Consultant: Reinself Wei
My younger brother and I decided to visit China for 10 days. I came across several Tour Companies on the internet, so I decided to email a few. Reinself Wei, the travel consultant from Odyssey Tours, really impressed me. He was professional and helpful while he patiently custom tailored our trip. When we got to Guangzhou, he went above and beyond to make us feel at home. I was delighted when he called to check up on us, several times! Our tour guides in Guangzhou, Guilin and Shanghai (David, Frank and Avril) were fabulous and knowledgeable too! They made our tours fun! My favorite was Li River Cruise with David! I'd like to thank you all, especially Reinself, we wouldn't have had such an amazing trip if it wasn't for you! You have been a pleasure to communicate with and I will definitely be contacting you for our next trip!
