Our first day in Kunming we saw the Stone Forest which was a particularly interesting sight. Our guide Linna Wang was very informative about the history of the Stone Forest and was extremely patient as we took our time to see each view point. She was also fantastic and extremely accommodating when we asked if she could take pictures of my wife and I together. She also did a great job recommending us a sight to see once we were done with our tour that day, which was called the Green Lake and she also recommended a restaurant for us to eat at. The next day she was very helpful when we needed to catch our train. Overall, our only regret is that my wife and I did not spend more time in the wonderful city of Kunming. Our guide Linna Wang and China Odynovo(Odyssey Tours) did a great job. We have used this company in nearly every vacation we have had to Asia and their services have been fantastic.

My husband and I went on our second private tour with Odynovo in March 2019; the first time was in March 2017. We returned to them because they provided great service the first time, and did so again the second round! Both trips were amazing - filled with spectacular sites! We went to 9 cities/towns within 10 days this trip. We only spent an afternoon in Kunming and went to Stone Forest. Stone Forest was quite the experience - parks resembling mazes consisting of massive limestones naturally left by receding water, then impacted by earthquakes leaving the stones as they are today. Odynovo's guides speak English well, provide a lot of information about each site (and China in general), and make an effort to ensure we are enjoying ourselves. They plan ahead so nothing goes wrong and that we have everything we need/want. We highly recommend Odynovo and Stone Forest!

We were transiting through Kunming to go to Lhasa and reached out to COT for a lovely one day tour of Stone Forest and Jiuxiang caves. Jessie was our guide and she did a terrific job of orienting us to Kunming and Yunnan. I can’t say enough good things about her - from checking in bathroom breaks, to suggesting shorter and longer walking routes - she was totally engaged with us and really great! Stone Forest is really quite an interesting place - and the natural rock formations make for good exploring. We spent about two hours then and then stopped for lunch at a small local restaurant. Jessie was very helpful with ordering a yummy lunch and then we went on to the Jiuxiang caves which are quite amazing just for their massive size. It was a longish day ~ 10 hrs but very doable.

Our 15 day tour of China was incredible. On this trip we went to Yunnan province and the Guanxi Zhaung Autonomous region. Allison Chiang is our travel consultant and she helped us create another very memorable tour. We had some ideas of what we wanted and she had some great suggestions and arranged the logistics to make it all work. The main sights we wanted were the Tiger Leaping Gorge, the Li River and the Longsheng rice terraces. We started in Kunming then Dali then Lijiang. Our guide Linna and driver Mr. Bing were an excellent pair to greet us at the airport and get us settled. We were at the perfect spot to tour around on our own and the planned sights were great. Linna and Mr. Bing are excellent and if you are fortunate enough to get them for your tour...count your lucky stars!!! Off to Dali for some more great sights and another wonderful place to stay. Our guide Vicki was excellent and Mr. He, our driver, was also great!! Then our first big stop. Tiger Leaping Gorge was incredible!!! So lucky to see it in September!!! Wow...and a super guide to go along with this part of the trip. Eleanor is incredible. She’s an excellent guide and took extra great care of us!!! We will never forget the strength (in every sense of the word) of a Naxi woman..loved that lady!!! Lijiang was much more than we had hoped!!! Then off to our next major destinations in Guanxi Zhaung Autonomous region. The Li River and Longsheng town. Our guide Gwen is another one of the best guides we’ve ever had. This was an important destination for us and she was absolutely perfect!! Our driver Mr. Yang was also great. We started at Sanjiang to see the Wind and Rain bridge...a great start! Then the rice terraces...absolutely incredible. Our timing couldn’t have been better. We saw them all and while we were walking the rice was changing colors in the afternoon sun. We hiked around for about 5 and a half hours. We were there for the full moon, so we sat out on our little balcony while enjoying special moon cakes from Eleanor and also a couple from Odynovo. We asked if we could go to a tea plantation...it wasn’t in our itinerary but Gwen said she would see what she could do. Gwen found a spot. We learned a lot!!! Off to Guilin and the Li River. Wow, another incredible place on earth!! The karst mountains along the river are beautiful!! Our trip to Yangshuo was excellent!!!! We made some paper fans, that was actually really fun, the instructor was very good!!! Then the Impression show...great!! Next morning sunrise view of the Li River and Gwen treated us to noodle soup at a local breakfast spot!!! Perfect and delicious, as we were pretty chilly from the early morning rain!!! Fabulous bike ride and then Taichi. Taichi master Kim was an amazing athlete and inspired us to try more at home. Excellent demonstration. We mention these items as sometimes you think of these as just fillers to the tour but these parts of the trip were instrumental in making the whole tour exceptional!!! This tour of China inspires us to return. We highly recommend Odynovo!! They have sure treated us well!!! Their guides are excellent. They are always an incredible reflection of the place we visit.
