Shanghai is an exciting city, it is full of life and has nothing to envy to the big cities in the world. Restaurants, shops, art. Incredible buildings and lovely people

China Odeyssey Tours will always be my choice for any visit to China.To experience the vast beauty and culture of China you need experts who will be with you every step of the way.My wife and I toured Beijing and the out lying areas including The Great Wall in March 2012.Maggie with China Odyssey had our iteneary planed before we arrived.We had been communicating with her and she had private Guide ,Tracy,and a private car and driver waiting for us when we landed at the airport.China Odyssey had arranged our stay at a 5 star hotel at a reasonable price.With the help of Tracy we saw and experienced wonderful sights and made memories that will last a life time.Don't hesitate to trust China Odyssey to take care of you if you planed to travel in Asia.

We traveled to China with one other couple and enjoyed a 7-city, 18-day private tour organized by China OdysseyTours. From start to finish, it was a wonderful and worthwhile experience. Karen Yang, our contact with China Odyssey, took care of every detail, no matter how small. She was accessible to us online every step of the way from planning through coming home. We were able to personalize our tour to include specific things we were interested in seeing, such as the Jewish section of Shanghai. I can't say enough about about our drivers and tour guides in each city, and we felt the tour cost was quite reasonable considering how few additional expenses we had on the trip. Two and sometimes three meals a day were included, and we thoroughly enjoyed the local restaurants selected by our tour guides. At times we rearranged the sight-seeing itinerary to accommodate other things we wanted to do, and this was not a problem whatsoever. The trip to China was the adventure of a lifetime, made comfortable and oh-so-pleasant by the staff at China Odyssey. I would definitely recommend them, especially if you are interested in personalizing your tour plans and itinerary.

My husband and I recently visited China for business and decided to take a week off to explore China. We contacted China Odyssey before we left the states and they we very professionala nd very receptive. last minute we dediced not to book a tour adn explore on our own. Once in beijing we realized it would be impossible w/o a tour guide. It's not just the laguage barrier but also the cultural barrier. China Odyssey was amazing! Last minute they out a "customized" package together for us. We flew from beijing to Huangshan and spent one night at the Yellow Mtns (Mt Huangshan), spectacular!!!!. We then flew to Hangzhou and finally we visited Linzhou. Wew returned to beijing by high-speed train. China Odyssey offers very proessional service, with high quality tour guides and it is reasonably priced. They were always available by phone or email and always very acommodating. We highly recommend them. They accept Paypal which was another plus. We will definetly do business with them in the future.
