    Dear Martha

    our trip in Myanmar is finished and Isa and me are fully satisfied.
    We have seen a lot of places, monuments and peoples.
    As usual we give you a little feedback of our trip.

    Organization
    Very good: intensive (4 internal flights) but in this way we save a lot of time and we saw a lot of things.

    Accomodation
    Good and coherent with our request.
    Only one remark regarding the Hotel in Bagan where the Hotel was good but with a poor bathroom (not coherent with the standard of the trip).
    Viceversa the Hotel on the Inle Lake was spectacular.

    Guides
    All the guides were very kind, helpful and prepared.
    Particularly the guides in Bagan and in Mandalay spoke an excellent English and were very cultured in order to give us a complete overview of the local culture.

    Conclusions
    As usual Isa and me were fully satisfied

    We joined a small group of 23 on an ultimate tour including Macchu Picchu. I think most of us thought you put together a great itinerary and each segment flowed really well. The flights, coaches, trains,and boats, hotels, tours & the guides.

    My annual holiday usually focuses on the months of November/December. Having travelled much of the world I have learnt to do a preliminary itinerary early in the year usually based on others experiences and research on the internet but hand it over to experts when the plan gets clearer. This year I chose China for my annual vacation and true to form, I contacted Odynovotours and their experienced travel consultant, Mike Goa, to set the wheels in motion. After the initial exchange of emails, Beijing, Xi'an and Shanghai were short listed. The most popular sights highlighted, a selection of hotels recommended according to my budget, transport, airport transfers, meals and personal advice were generated and a final decision was taken. On what proved to be a superb vacation, Xi'an stood out for a few different reasons. Met by my tour guide, the fluent english speaking Jessie brought me on a wonderful experience. Starting with the opportunity to see the legendry Terracotta Warriors, this was an experience to behold. Jessie gave 2 full hours of their background and seemed to stroll through the morning which made it so enjoyable. Back to the city to visit The Wild Goose Pagoda, she was still at ease describing the background. She took me for a long walk in the same area to view many monuments and statues still giving an in depth background. The next morning commenced with a visit to the Ancient City Wall but both of us feeling energetic and revisiting our youth, hired bicycles and went about cycling the 13km wall with it's 14m wide cobble stone surface. What an experience!!! Poor Jessie felt the pressure and demanded a pit stop. This was followed by a visit to a Chinese family on the 15th floor of an apartment complex where I was introduced to the husband and wife and became the touring chef when shown and then made to prepare dumplings and noodles which we cooked and ate. Thanks to Odynovo, I had a great experience before moving on

    Xian Tour did another outstanding job of setting up a private tour to see beautiful Yunnan province in China. Sophie's customer service was excellent as she provide ideas for the visit and built an excellent itinerary. We were booked into excellent hotels in the heart of Ancient towns which allowed us to walk around and enjoy the sights. the guides were knowledgeable about the region and culture. Dali, Shaxi, and LiJiang are a must see. definitely use China xian tour anywhere you want to go in China.

    Xi’an’s food is amazing. BiangBiang noodles and Peking Duck (Beijing) ate the best things I’ve eaten in China. Was really nice hearing about the history too.

    An amazing day which blew me away with how intricate and beautiful the terracotta warriors were. I went with my girlfriend ( we are British). We went by ourselves and didn’t use a tour guide. Getting in is very simple but right now you CANNOT book tickets online. When you arrive you will be pulled aside to check your passport details as you won’t have a Chinese ID. No problem for me as I’ve been used to this in China for many years. When you get to the ticket office you can pay with WeChat now or cash. For 2 adults we paid ¥240RMB. We arrived at 11am ( not early birds) and there was a queue but nothing major. Your ticket will be checked to get into the park and then again about a few hundred meters later just before the dig sites. There are 3 pits all together, and I URGE people to see pit 1 LAST as this is the most impressive one to see. It is huge and the warriors are outstanding. There is a big walkway all around the warriors so there are infinite chances to take photographs. Bring a good camera for Pit 2 and 3 as they are a little dark. All in all it took us about 2 hours to walk round all 3 will a little break for some snacks. Be prepared there will be many tour groups there the same time as you, and they may be a bit pushy when it comes to the perfect picture angle. An absolutely outstanding day and we enjoyed every minute of it!!

    We've wanted to see the Terrakotta warriors since they were discovered and finally had a chance to make a short trip to Xian and needed to find a good guide who could make this the experience we wanted it to be - without any hassle getting there or wading through lots of people. Liu was better than that. He sorted all logistics perfectly, he is a fluent English speaker, has a university degree in history and is an excellent communicator with a sense of humor. We learned a lot, had great fun and the trip became a better experience than we could imagine. He also took us to see some of the sights in Xian and we regretted we didn't stay longer - there is more Xian that the Terrakotta Warriors.
