I had never heard of China Odyssey Tours until I googled them on the internet and with some nervousness made an initial enquiry with them. Reinself Wei replied to my email and from that moment on I knew this was the agency I wanted to deal with. Thank you Reinself Wei for being our agent. We cannot fault your service. You have given us great service which has been professional, efficient, knowledgeable, prompt and without problems. You have answered all of our questions promptly and given us advice regarding our trip to China. We would definitely book through you and your company again. Thank you very much.

Thanks to our amazing tour planner Alex Quan of China Odyssey Tours we had an amazing tour of 7 cities in China over 16 days. The guides have perfect English and were attentive to everything we needed, ensuring we were happy with our hotel rooms and that we made it onto the trains and planes, and they explained so much about how China operates and what it is like to live in this hugely populated country. I learned so much, and enjoyed every single tour. They gave us choices along the way, and would make extra stops for specific requests. I did not think we needed this much assistance, as I have traveled several times to Asia, but because so few Chinese people speak English, we appreciated dining suggestions and assistance with finding authentic souvenirs. We chose 5 star hotels, even requested a view of the Bund in Shanghai, and we loved every place we stayed. It was a great 4 person tour. Alex was very quick to respond to each and every email. I would recommend Odyssey Tours to anyone. I have never seen such first class service from start to finish. No surprise there are all these amazing reviews. Thank You.
