Awesome Tour Guide
Jan 2020
We purchased the 2 day Private Beijing Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven, Mutianyu Great Wall tickets for two people, and had a great time.

Our tour guide, Rocky Niu, was wonderful. He is informative, accommodating, energetic, and his English is very good. Both mornings we were warmly greeted by Rocky Niu and Lee Jun. As we drove, Rocky would break down the daily schedule for us, ask our preferences, and point out parts of the city to discuss. We enjoyed this driving ritual even more so, thanks to Lee Jun's excellent driving. Rocky also kept us up to date with current events in China, and provided face masks for us each day, explaining the newest findings of the Corona Virus. Lee Jun, our driver stayed nearby so we could leave whenever we'd like. Rocky was so knowledgable, that others would come over and stand by us to listen to what he had to say. Rocky and Lee Jun picked the places for us to eat lunch. Both restaurants were excellent, and all the dishes they recommended were delicious. We did get tired, and had to end our tour a bit earlier, to which Rocky offered some great solutions/alternatives. Lee Jun drove us back to our hotel safely.

We had an unbelievable time in Beijing, and it is all thanks to out tour guide, Rocky Niu, and our driver Lee Jun. We truly appreciate the two of them. Thank you, again.

We highly recommend this tour, this tour guide, and this driver!

Fantastic Tour Guide
Dec 2019
Kurt was an excellent tour guide! He was very personable, warm, had a wonderful sense of humour, and took great pride in sharing his knowledge with us. I thoroughly enjoyed learning about Beijing's rich culture and history from him. Even though he was our guide for only 3 days, by the end, it felt like we had known him for a long time. Having Kurt as our guide really allowed us to immerse ourselves in the experience. He took great care of us and the service was outstanding. I would highly recommend China Odyssey Tours.

Excellent Private Tour by Odynovo
Dec 2019
We took a private 10 day tour to China and spent 3 days in Beijing. Out tour guide Ada was a wonderful person. She met us in the train station as we traveled by Bullet train from X'ian. She welcomed us with a smile and was very friendly and flexible. As we were not comfortable taking any Chinese food, she suggested and took us to the best Indian restaurant in town "In Kitchen" and we loved the food there .

Our walking tour started in Tienanmen Square and then we did the Forbidden City,.. She explained the history and the story of all places we visited. Ada was very particular to ensure that all our doubts were cleared and was asking if we have any more questions. She wanted to make sure we were satisfied. As we had some time after lunch, she took us for shopping in the Pearl market and spent some time with us while shopping and then we took metro back to hotel .As we wanted to experience the metro, she came along with us.She was a great guide, and she never rushed us in any place.

Next day, we went to Mutianyu Great wall, took cable car and spent some time there. Then we went to Ming tomb , Sacred road to heaven . In the evening we went to an acrobatic show and that was a fantastic show. I never seen such a show in my life. They brought a complete water falls, river etc on to the stage , water was flowing from the stage . I can't believe , I ma watching a show. Everything was realistic. It was good that Ada suggested as this show.

Third day as our flight was late in the afternoon, we decided to add Summer Palace to our tour. Ada was very accommodating and she immediately arranged for the last minute addition to the tour without any hesitation . Our driver was also a great person.We visited the summer palace and the lake was frozen. But I liked the marble boat .

Ada was the best guide for us , she was very particular that we stay hydrated all through the day. So she was providing us with sufficient water bottles as she was more concerned about our health.We enjoyed the tour in Beijing.

Thanks to Odynovo tour consultant Vincent who was very prompt in responding to all our queries during the process of arranging the tour.

A culturally rich Beijing adventure
Dec 2019
Thanks to the aid of our Odynovo consultant Kevin Yang and our Beijing guide Alice Wang, we were able to experience Beijing through a lens we never would've found on our own.

The 2.5 days flew by as they were packed full of activities, each one maximised in detail and enjoyment as Alice educated us on the city's rich history and cultural significance, all with a smile on her face and friendly banter thrown in there. This allowed our family to get in touch with our roots and bond through the new shared experiences.

A highlight was definitely the day we walked the Mutianyu Great Wall with a blue sky above and layer of fresh snow below. After advising us on the best souvenir shops to go to, Alice then took us to a local restaurant which gave us arguably the best meal of the trip, freshly caught (by Dad) rainbow trout, a literal brick of tofu and pancakes, which were local specialties. Alice continually advised us on the tips and details that would maximise both our enjoyment and budget which we were grateful for.

Lastly, our driver, Mr Eye (sp) was the most punctual, smooth driver we could've asked for. Thank you Odynovo!

We highly recommend using this tour company and will be using them again in the future.

Great experience with Odynovo Tours
Nov 2019
Our dear friends used Odynovo Tours last year in China and they recommended them to us. Monica Mo, our Travel Consultant, was terrific. She was extremely responsive and efficient. We wanted to stay in a hotel that was more reflective of traditional Chinese culture and she found the perfect place for us. Our guide, Felix was helpful, knowledgeable and very friendly. Our driver was friendly and was always there to pick us up when we were done visiting a particular stop. We were well taken care of!

Beijing 2-day Private Tour
Nov 2019
Just completed 2-day private tour of fantastic highlights of Beijing with Neil and his adroit driver Lee.Neil was personable and incredibly knowledgable about Beijing and his native China.We felt like we got such insights from this fluent English speaking local.He also went out of his way to make sure that my Gluten-free diet was observed, discussing directly with the chef on one of the delicious meals.Navigating the sights of this 22 million strong city without Neil and driver Lee could have been overwhelming.We can't say enough about how enjoyable and memorable they made the experience.

Fabulous Beijing Experience
Sep 2019
My wife & I booked our china trip through China Odyssey Tours, which included two days in Beijing. Odyssey was easy to work with and they did an excellent job communicating and organizing our entire trip.
In Beijing, we had a wonderful tour guide, whose name was Yuzhen Liang (Jim). Jim was so accommodating and pleasant to spend our days with. He was always on time, he offered history and background as we toured the sites. My wife wanted to see parts of the city that were not on the itinerary. Jim was very flexible and arranged what we wanted to see. We really enjoyed a couple of local restaurants that Jim recommended and tourists would not normally know about. I highly recommend Odyssey and make sure to ask for Jim

A great guide helps me scale the Great Wall
Sep 2019
As the first leg of my 10 day tour of China, I flew into Bejing, to be greeted by a smiling and personable Neil. He didn't flinch when I told him I was 72 years old, and had had back surgery one year before. Instead he encouraged me, waited patiently while I rested in the shade, all the while imparting a wonderful amount of Chinese history. He was kind, funny, and knowledgable. With his help, I triumphantly reached the top of the wall! A wonderful moment for me, which Neil helped me document by obtaining a certificate that certified my accomplishment. He was the epitome of what one desires in a guide, and felt like a friend by the end, as he waited with me at the train station, helped me into my car, stowing my luggage and obtaining a promise from a fellow passenger to help me at my next destination. I highly reccoment Neil and Odynovo.
