Odynovo and Wendy Wan, were very professional and made the organizing of our trip very easy. The itinerary was perfect for our time and the days were well paced. All of our guides were professional and very personable. William in Beijing was a pleasure to travel with - like being with our adult son! His knowledge of history was amazing and his skill at getting us to the front of the lines was very impressive. We were on the Great Wall with hardly any other people - which was such a treat. He got us to the airport and checked in and on our way- so very helpful. Ben in Chongquing made sure we saw the old town in our short time there and got us safely on the ship for our Yangtze cruise. Shirley in Yichang went above and beyond - by driving three hours and finding us on National Day - locating our misplaced luggage and ensuring we got to the train station and on the correct train.
Mark in Shanghai met us at the train station got us settled at the hotel and was there bright and early the next day to show us Shanghai. All our tours were well organized. We felt we experienced the culture, the food, saw many parts of the countryside and met the people. We found our free time was perfect and had no issues getting around and seeing the different cities. I would highly recommend Odynovo.

My friend and I recently finished our 14 day tour throughout China. We had some amazing tour guides: Alice in Guilin, Rita in Xi’an and Tracy in Beijjng. They were all informative and incredibly helpful making our tour one where we learnt a lot about China. I would recommend this tour company to others!

I recently returned from a trip with my family from China using the China Odyssey agency. Initially I was not sure what to think about booking a private tour basing everything off online reviews, hearing multiple horror stories about people getting scammed on vacation deals. Boy was I wrong. I have traveled the most internationally out of my family, never using a tour guide. It was so easy to pick and choose what we wanted to do and communicating with the agency was super easy. They were able to accommodate what we wanted to do. It was comforting to know we have an itinerary when we went so no time was wasted!
We arrived in Shanghai and were greeted by our tour guide Eileen, who was friendly and spoke English. She guided us for the next 2 days through Shanghai. We had a private van for me and my family (total of 4 of us, including my parents). They took us to our hotel, helped us check in, and went over the itinerary for the rest of our stay in the city. This was how it was in every city we went to in China. When departing Shanghai, Eileen helped us in the airport, check us into our flight, and watched us to security check point, The same can be said about the other tour guides we met and became friends with during our trip. We met William in Guilin/Yangshuo. He was awesome and gave great advice while making the most of our time in these cities. We met Ky in Xi'an. He was very sweet and helpful during our stay there. And lastly, we had Alice in Beijing. She was very knowledgable like the rest of the tour guides and was almost like having another mother with us. Me and my sister wanted to get tattoos in Beijing and she made contact with the shop for us (after already pre-arranging everything ahead of time) to make sure they knew we were coming, speaking in their native tongue. It was extremely helpful! I would highly recommend booking a trip through this company. It really does feel like you are traveling with a friend, who can speak the language, teach you about the culture, and help you navigate during your stay in a foreign country. 5 stars!!

Once again, Allison Chiang planned an exceptional 4 day tour of Beijing and area for us. Our guide provided, Mr. Rock Niu, was very friendly and very knowledgeable about Beijing. He made us feel welcome from the very beginning, picking us up from the airport precisely as planned. The hotel chosen for us, the Kapok, was excellent. Our itinerary was exactly as expected and went as planned without any delays or hiccups. Thank you, Allison. Your planning was meticulous, and I look forward to you planning a third trip for us.

Our dream trip to china started with 5 days in Beijing and the perfect guide for this job , Linda .. if you are up to driving 2 1/2 hours away from Beijing you get to hike the jinshanling section of the Great Wall of China .. this section is less crowded , no hawkers , serious fellow hikers , mostly Chinese , the hike up to the towers get pretty steep , several of them we literally had to creep up .. simply spectacular . We got to see the signed bricks , Linda used the time we had very well so we didn’t waste it hiking to the gondolas .. we took a golf cart to the gondola , that dropped us off at the bass of a great wall tower and we had the option to go either way and meet up at the gondola on two hours .. later that night we enjoyed Peking duck dinner at Da Dong ! Best place for ambience and taste , this Day was a crisp sunny blue sky day and we would not see this again for days to come !! We ended up visiting the tianamen square , the forbidden city , royal garden Jinshan mountain all in a constant drizzle and grey skies . We got to tailor winter jackets with Linda’s help after hours with a local tailoring shop . All in all an unforgettable trip

We were in Beijing for work and had 1 day for sightseeing. We worked with Odyssey Tours to book a custom 1-day tour including the Great Wall and Summer Palace. The tour was unforgettable – informative and diverse. Our tour guide, Alice, was very knowledgeable and enjoyable to travel with. She was able to answer all of our questions plus some we did not know we had! She also encouraged us to take on a very steep portion of the Great Wall, towers 1-4 or 11-14 of Mutianyu section, depending on how you count the towers). This was something we never would have considered on our own, but afterwards we were very glad for the experience! We’ve used Odyssey Tours a few times during business trips out of the country and they have always met or exceeded our expectations. Highly recommended!
