Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I have just returned from a private 16 day tour of Morocco organised through my travel consultant Allison Chiang who has been my consultant since my first trip with Odynovo in 2014.
The trip was planned for 2020 but was postponed due to covid. My sister and I stayed with the itenary we had planned for 2020.
We were picked up by Amine who was to be our driver through out our trip. “ Driver” is an understatement Amine was so much more, over the the course of our trip we developed a real friendship.
Amine asked if there was anything special we wanted to see or something we need to just let him know and he would do his best. One of my wishes was to see a Horse Festival but having no set dates and held in villages I didn’t get my hopes up. A few days before the end of our trip Amine had a surprise for us. 😍 my wish came true. The afternoon spent in the village watching the festival with the local people was amazing and one of the best memories we took home with us.
Amine realised my sister and I were keen photographers and was more than happy to stop for us to take that “shot “. He also took us off the beaten track to take photos. My thought was I’m glad we postponed our trip otherwise we would not have met Amine. The people you meet along they way help make your trip memorable and meeting Amine helped make our trip so much more.
I have no hesitation in recommending Odynovo to my family or friends I am planning a trip with them to Kenya in 2023.
The accommodation for us in Morocco was perfect Riads in the Medinas and a tent in the Sahara. Our car was always clean and on time.
Amine spoke excellent English
Amine would suggest guides at some of our locations to help us understand what we were seeing or the significance of a place. It was our choice whether to take up the suggestion.
Shopping was not big on our to do list. But if there was something we were interested in Amine or our guides in Fes or Merrakech search it out for us.
If you think a private tour might be beyond your budget enquire it will surprise you.
Great company with excellent consultants, drivers and guides. During all of my trips Odynovo have checked in with me to ensure I am enjoying the trip and this one was no different except we actually got to meet Fatima who spent a day with us.

Top marks to Odynovo.

My daughter and I did a Rajastan tour arranged by Odynovo. We went in late September Into early October after the monsoon. The trip explored religious and royal monuments as well as bazars. When visiting various places we had numerous tour guides with varying quality: our tour guide for old Delhi, Anjou, was exceptionally good, as was Deepak in Udaipur because both spoke with passion and sincerity about their cities as well as very knowledgeable. Throughout our trip we had the same driver Ragan Gupta, who provided consistency (providing us water at every stop) and safety (caring for us). He was genuine and made the trip run smoothly.
Overall, the over-site Odynovo provided increased the ability to have the trip run smoothly!

We are on a tour through SE Asia and it has been wonderful thanks to Bruce Peng for setting it up for us. He went over and above by helping us book after we left the tour. Highly recommend this service.

Hoi An is a magical place made even more special by Be, our Odynovo guide. Spent the days cycling though the Delta (day 1) and farmland (Day 2). The second day with "Tree", our guide was wonderful. We saw the farms, fished in a bamboo boat, and had a cooking class. The mornings and Evenings in Hoi An are wonderful for strolling in the shops. This is a very special place.

2 days at Huangshan and Mt Huanghsan was part of our 12 day day private tour arranged by Odynovo. Our guide Libby, was at the train station to receive us. Checking into the hotels, was seamlessly facilitated by Libby. Staff in smaller cities do not speak English or understand English thus having an English speaking guide helps. Libby is very knowledgeable about the culture and history of the areas.

We had a delicious lunch at a local restaurant in the village. The chef prepared a delicious Tofu dish for us as we are vegetarians.

On the Yellow mountains, the climb up from the cable car to the hotel is tough for the not so fit. There are steps through all routes. It would be advisable for Odynovo to mention this in their itineraries / proposals as not everyone has the same fitness level.

The hotel we stayed at was beautiful. In the afternoon, the mist cleared up for about an hour and we walked to the viewpoint with Libby. We were lucky to see the peaks and the north sea of clouds. Breathtaking views.

All arrangements done by Odynovo were perfect - the car, the driver, the guide, the hotels .

My husband has wanted to return to Vietnam for many years. After much research he found Odynovo to be the best fit. Upon arrival Nhon and Lam took the best care of us. They were so polite and helpful that we wouldn’t have done the trip without them. Nhon was very informative about the culture and traditions. And Lam is the best driver in all the chaos that is Saigon city.

Fortunate to meet the patient and knowledgeable guide Vans. Enjoyed amazing views amid thick fog rolling in and out the whole time. The crowd was thin and the weather was pleasant, not too cold

Trip of a Life Time to Egypt, Israel and Jordan

In October and November, my friend and I took a tour arranged by Odynovo (Odyssey) Tours. I did a lot of reasearch on the internet before deciding to go with Odynovo. I found overwhelmingly positive reviews. After reading reviews on Trip Advisor, I decided to trust my month-long, once-in-a-lifetime, retirement celebration trip to the Middle East to Odynovo. Leo Huang served as my Travel Consultant. I cannot say enough good things about him. Leo patiently worked with me for quite some time designing exactly the right itnerary for me. Then I had to wait months until the day of departure arrived. Finally, we were off and landed in Egypt where we were met by a great guy, Hasim Ibrahim. He took great care of us in Egypt. Everything went very smoothly. Highlights included snorkeling in Sharm El Sheik, desert safari in the Sinai Desert, and riding camels to the top of Mt. Sinai to see the dawn. Our guides in Egypt were very good. Samuel, our guide on our Nile Cruise was excellent, very knowledgable and informative. I kept in touch with Leo by internet. He was Great. He was available to help when there were some little inconveniences. From Egypt we traveled to Israel. Once again everything went great. Kareem was an awesome driver and companion to us. He regularly went above and beyond the call of duty. He made our time in Israel very special. Highlights included the trip to Nazareth and the ruins at Bet She’an. We crossed into Jordan at the Allenby bridge/King Hussein border crossing. The crossing went smoothly, even though there is very little information provided by the governments at the crossing. I just asked a lot of questions until I figured out what to do. Issa met us on the Jordanian side and helped us with the visa for my friend, who had to apply over the internet since there was no embassy in his home country. It took a while once we arrived, but Issa took care of everything. Then we met our driver, Ibrahim. He did a great job. He was always available for us. He took great care of us. He made sure that everything went great. At one point, I forgot something very important at the hotel in Petra and Ibrahim made it seemed like a hundred phone calls to ensure that it was returned to me. Highlights of Jordan included Petra, of course, and Wadi Rum. We especially loved the camel ride to see the sunset in Wadi Rum. Ibrahim knew how important the camel ride was to us and he made many phone calls to make sure that everything went fine with the camels! Finally, Issa met us again at the airport in Amman to see us off. My friend and I were very sad to leave all of our new friends behind. The trip was great. Just what I was hoping for. Leo did an awesome job. We could not have been more pleased. It was a huge success. Completely unforgettable. I can very highly recommend Odynovo and especially Leo.

Our private tour began at 12.00am on the 14th November where our Tour Guide, Gwen met us outside of customs with a lovely big smile and welcome to China. She immediately offered to help us with luggage and was very efficient and helpful when assisting us to check into our hotel. Our tour included a luncheon cruise on the Li River and we found it extremely interesting with magnificent scenery. Gwen was very knowledgeable, telling us about the different villages cultures and the history of the area. We were very impressed with the destination, hotel and the attractions and it was such a relaxing and enjoyable experience with the personal touch and informative information from both Gwen and our Driver Mr Ling.

After Guilin we flew into Beijing to enjoy the sights including The Great Wall, Forbidden City, Summer Palace, Ming Tomb and the Prayer of Good Harvest. What a great experience and I don’t think our family would have enjoyed it as much without our Beijing Tour Guide Sisi. Her endless knowledge about her city made us all love it! Sisi and the Driver Mr I were very accommodating with our requests and she was a very enthusiastic and passionate about China and her city. Thank you to both our tour guides and Odynovo Tours for giving our family an amazing and memorable experience. We will be back!
