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 second time using Nancy as our guide. The first time was in Oct 2015 and this second time- end of Jan 2017. I specifically requested Nancy as our guide because she was wonderful the first time when I was travelling with a friend. This time around, our baggage did not make it to Xi'an and it was cold, 15 degrees F. Nancy came to our rescue by loaning my wife her spare jacket and the driver loaned me his! Boy, did we need it. Nancy being a native of Xi'an gave us a unique perspective of the city and the history. Other than the historical and cultural facts of Xi'an and China, Nancy's personality and her fluent English makes the tour very enjoyable. Both times, she was with us for 2 days, met us at the airport and saw us off even when it was 6 in the morning. I would highly recommend Nancy of Odyssey as a guide for Xi'an.

We absolutely loved our experience in Xi'an with our tour guide Lee. A part from the amazing terra-cotta soldiers, the city wall, learning how to drink tea, trying our hand at Chinese calligraphy, and the history of the old capital, we were able to expand on our mandarin skills also. Thank you Lee & Odyssey Tours! Wo î ni!

Just returned from a trip to China organised by Wendy at China Odyssey Tours. My daughter and I had a memorable time visiting Xi'an to see the Terracotta Warriors. Definitely a place to visit as this archeological find is over 2,000 years old. Also the Ancient City Walls with the Bell Tower standing in the centre of the city were great sights to see. Wendy customised our trip to suit and nothing was a bother for her. A guide was organised for us and Harry was so knowledgeable on everything we asked. We were driven to many great places in Xi'an and had a pleasurable time visiting all the ancient sights. Wendy organised all flights, accommodation and tours and I would definitely recommend her to anyone interested in visiting China. I will definitely return again when my savings permit...A very big THANK YOU....

Our private tour guide, Betty J, was very professional and knowledgeable about Xian in general. Made the 4 day private tour very insightful and worthwhile. Her communication skills in both English and Mandarin were good enough for us to understand the dynasties, history of temples, Terracotta Army, city streets, culture of Muslim settlements, city walls, etc. A very confident guide that can get things done.

Without the guide it would not have been as enjoyable because of the information available in acceptable amounts and at the right time.

There was a big car in relatively new condition driven by a dedicated driver who had no problems going around at all. Overall a very good experience.

The only downside is the relatively high cost for the private tour.

We are going to China in April 2017, but started the planning way ahead - in May 2016! We contacted two travel companies in China, both of which came with good reviews on TA. But after a couple of emails it became clear Odssey Tours were streets ahead.Of course that's all to do with the individual you get to deal with. in our case it's Tom Zhou, though by reading the other testimonials it seems that the execellent training is company wide.Tom has been excellent in working with us to arrange the best itinerary and accommodation, and we are so looking forward to our trip, confident that we will be well looked after, and that if there are any issues/problems, they will be dealt with, promptly and efficiently.One of the most important things for me is prompt replies to emails, even it's just an acknowledgment. There's nothing worse than being ignored. Tom has been assiduous in replying to me, and I really appreciate that.
