Knowledgeable and responsive - we booked with Bruce P.
We were looking for a custom accompanied tour to Angkor Wat and Cambodia. Bruce P. put together an excellent 5 day itinerary for us affording us an in depth experience of the region. His knowledge of the area was key to building a trip that met are needs and his responsive communications were excellent. We are looking forward to taking this trip in Nov 2021!
My husband and I traveled to Jordan and Egypt in January, and we couldn’t have been happier with the entire experience. Mason Li created several custom itineraries to fit our interests, and he was very accessible and communicative throughout the process, and even while we were on the trip. We LOVED our time in Jordan, and our driver Saif, was an excellent guide. He was very knowledgeable about the country, and was very welcoming. We stayed in several very nice hotels, and had local guides meet us for specific tours. We were always greeted by so...meone from Odynovo at every new city. We felt very safe, and welcome the entire time. Petra was a highlight for us, as we had a VERY knowledgeable guide, Mamoun Ali Nawafleh. That definitely made Petra even more memorable. Wadi rum was also so beautiful and unique. If you go in January, bring warm clothes for the evening. We will definitely look to use Odynovo again to travel.
Great tour company; look forward to traveling again with Odynovo
We've used Odynovo twice: two years ago to Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia, and last October to India and Shanghai. Queenie Yang, our travel agent at Odynovo for India, could not have been better: she planned a great trip, happily adjusted it multiple times until it was exactly right, and secured us wonderful hotels, excellent guides and the most wonderful person for our extended driver over 10 days in India.
We look forward to using Odynovo, and working with Queenie Yang, again.
Private 9-Day Golden Triangle Tour including Delhi, Varanasi, Agra and Jaipur
We visited Delhi, Varanasi, Agra and jaipur. It was an incredible experience. In each of these cities we were guided by an outstanding professional explaining everything regarding the sites we visited.
Nepal Amid Covid
We had an amazing experience and trip to Nepal despite the Covid pandemic. Our Bhutan portion of the trip was cancelled but Cynthia and Prashant did a great job of substituting in a 5-day trek to Poon Hill in the Annapurnas. I can’t thank them enough and would recommend them to anyone looking to travel to Nepal.
We were supposed to go on a Japan trip this April. We planned well ahead in January and our Travel Consultant, Will Pan was extremely helpful building the itinerary for our trip. He even offered day to go to certain tours to make sure we don't go with the crowd.
Given the COVID-19 incident, we had to postpone our trip. I was expecting a disappointed travel agent but again, Will was extremely helpful cancelling our trip and he even expedited the processing of our refund.
We will definitely use Odynovo and Will's services again once things go back to normal.
Thank you Will Pan and the Odnovo team for an outstanding job serving your customers.
Tailored 22 day India Tour for 5
An outstanding holiday. We've been on many long haul holidays in recent years and this was the best. John Hu from Odynovo was always professional and efficient and this made the preparation for our tour trouble free. The guides and drivers in India were excellent and the hotels very well-chosen. We took a risk going with a company without a base in the UK but the holiday was extremely well-organised and responsive to our requests.
Odynovo and its staff are incredible to work with!
We have taken two trips to date with Odynovo. Our first was in 2014 to China...Kalinda Fu took such great care in helping ten of us make this a trip of a lifetime. Last year four of us traveled to Southeast Asia and we visited Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand. Again Kalinda Fu made all the arrangements to provide us with a fabulous trip. All of our hotels were five star and our guides and drivers very professional and so knowledgeable. Everything worked perfectly and again we were so well taken care of. This upcoming week eight of us were schedul...ed to travel again with Odynovo to Egypt, Jordan and Israel. For this trip we worked with Vincent Ruan. Vincent worked so very hard for us to make this an incredible trip. Unfortunately as we all know COVID-19 has put a damper on travel. We had to cancel this trip for a variety of reasons and throughout this process Vincent was with us every step of the way. He made every effort to help us limit our losses. Odynovo is a first-class operation and we will again be booking with them and heading to the Middle East when able. We would be more than pleased to work with either Kalinda and Vincent again. They are truly caring and professional. Our working relationships with them both is certainly reflective of how important clients and their needs are to Odynovo.
Incredible Odynovo and India!
Our trip to India was absolutely fantastic!
Kyle T the office created this outstanding itinerary for us that we are so grateful for!
We did a private 3 week tour of northern India that included the Golden Triangle we were in Jaipur for Holi Festival!!
Each driver and guide that we had on the different legs of our trip were so attentive, kind and thoughtful. They knew where the cool things to do were. If we asked for something different or specific they made it happen. They arranged activities for us that were completely out of this world!
Our trip to Egypt was a journey long thought about, due to the many glories (and riddles) of this ancient land. We chose Odynovo for our private tour after a good deal of research, but we were not initially aware of how important it is to have expert tourism assistance in Egypt, due to the very tight security requirements of the authorities. John Hu, our travel consultant, helped us plan our trip over a period of months. He was always available and made several excellent suggestions to suit our itinerary.
One of the first things we noticed on a...
Wonderful itinerary very well executed
Cathy Hou at Odynovo was a pleasure to work with. She quickly responded to our queries and crafted an itinerary based on our interests and accommodation preference.
Once our trip commenced, we were impressed with the trip materials provided, the professionalism of the guides, drivers and vehicles, as well as the quality of the tours.
Most importantly, we had a great time on our vacation knowing that every detail had been taken care of. We will absolutely book via Odynovo in the future!

The perfect land package from the leader in the field
For our first trip to China we chose the leader in the field of private touts and tailor-made itineraries, in China and elsewhere, Odynovo; for, nobody knows China better than Odynovo. The experience of creating a land package to our exact specifications is a luxury we wanted for our first visit to China. Our private consultant was Vincent Ruan and we felt immediately we were in good, and experienced, hands. No praise will suffice to describe his professionalism, patience, and efficiency in helping us with planning our land package in China. We strongly recommend Odynove and Vincent Ruan.
Fantastic 16 day private tour to Vietnam with Odynovo
We have just returned to Australia after our 16 day tour of Vietnam. Our holiday was fantastic, educational, adventurous and great fun. Our enjoyment of the trip was certainly due to the great organisation by our Odynovo consultant Bruce Peng, who provided us with a tailored itinerary to suit our interests. His great organisation was backed up by the fantastic local tour guides in each area showing us around their city and serving up great history lessons and loads of local knowledge.
In Ho Chi Min City we were met by our guide Anh, who ...was warm and friendly and extremely knowledgable. We visited Cun Chi Tunnels, The Mekong Delta and did a tour of the city. Anh made sure that we were well looked after wherever we went and made each day entertaining and interesting. It was fun to visit Ho Chi Minh city with Anh. Next, we flew to Hue where we had a slight issue with our pick up due to a change of flight, but this was handled quickly and efficiently by the Odynovo staff and we soon met our guide Linh. We loved Hue and especially enjoyed Hoi An. Linh was so knowledgable on all the historical sites and made them all come to life with her descriptions. Linh also shared many stories of local life which we enjoyed and was able to recommend good restaurants for us to explore when we had free time. A pleasant surprise was Marble Mountain in Hoi Ann which was beautiful and fascinating. We also loved the cooking class and fishing day trip. We cycled to the destination where we were taught net fishing, then had an individual cooking class in a family -run restaurant. A great day with lovely people. On to Hanoi where we were met by our energetic guide Thanh. Again loads of historical facts and local knowledge delivered in a fun way. We especially loved Sapa and the half-day trek through the villages where the scenery was amazing and the people lovely. We also were impressed by the views from Heavens Gate and the Silver Waterfall. Towards the end of our trip, we had a few issues with a hotel lockdown in Sapa and our Ha Long Bay Cruise being cut short due to the corona virus. We were especially grateful to have Thanh by our side as he dealt with the authorities and negotiated our required changes to itinerary keeping us informed and making sure it all went smoothly.
India Feburary 2020
My wife and I just returned from a 2 week-long trip to India planned by Vincent at Odynovo Tours. Vincent did an outstanding job of planning a very extensive and detailed itinerary, starting in northern India and working our way down to the south. We started off in Delhi, then continued to Agra, Varanasi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Kochi, and then back to Delhi where we caught our flight home. We flew between cities in India via Indigo Airlines. Everything went very smooth thanks to Vincent’s planning. At each destination, we were met by a guide and d...river who took care of everything for us. All we had to do was sit back, relax, and enjoy the trip. Vincent’s attention to detail and thoroughness made sure that we were well taken care of throughout the entire trip and everything went according to schedule. The city tours were great and the accommodations/hotels were outstanding. This was our second vacation planned and coordinated by Vincent (the first one being China in 2019), and we expect to go on a third one to the Middle East in 2021. I would highly recommend Vincent and Odynovo Tours for a vacation. They are extremely dependable, reasonably priced, and very accommodating to your wants and desires.
The Most Amazing Trip!
My wife and I booked an 18 Day Trip to Egypt and Jordan. Mason Li was our Travel Consultant and he was excellent. We customized one of their standard trips to add in a few days. Mason was so friendly to work with, got back to us right away and did everything in his power to make our trip perfect.
I couldn't recommend Odynovo more highly. Here are tons of details - but bottom line, they deliver and have great people working for them.
I couldn't imaging going without the help of Odynovo. We were met by Medhat who met us at the airport ...and helped us breeze through immigration and customs and showed us where to change money. Our Cairo guide Mohamed Abdallah was amazing! Since he was an Egyptologist, he was able to answer all of our questions, but more importantly, we had some of the best conversation with him about life in Egypt. One of our trip highlights was eating lunch with him and Ahmed - our Cairo driver. Mohamed's friendliness and knowledge was outstanding. When we flew to Aswan for the second part of the trip our Egyptologist guide was Tarek Hassan - who was also fantastic. We went to Abu Simbel, the Valley of the Kings, Kom Ombo, Philae Temple and more. Tarek had so much knowledge to share, took great photos of us in front of the monuments and was great conversation. We spent a few lovely days at Hurghada relaxing and snorkeling in the Red Sea - which was astounding.
19 Day India & Nepal Private Tour
We would like to thank Byron Wang and the Odynovo team for making our tour of India a very memorable and enjoyable time. We only had three weeks to organize this trip and Byron was very prompt in returning emails and organizing our itinerary - drivers, guides and hotels were all included. Our drivers always took good care of us and were always on time and especially talented in whatever traffic conditions prevailed. Special thanks to Avtaar in India and Umesh in Nepal, your driving skills are amazing, and you added stories particular to local c...ulture along the way. Also big thanks to the local guides in each city who shared their local knowledge which made the trip interesting and added to our enjoyment of the many tourist attractions that we visited in India and Nepal. Recommendations for food and cultural experiences were always enjoyed. Our accommodation was always clean, tidy and conveniently situated. Many thanks to Byron for putting together a wonderful trip, which started in Udaipur and by car to Jodphur, Pushkar,Jaipur, Agra, Delhi, then train to Amritsar (Golden Temple and Wagha Border crossing were amazing), and then on to Nepal- Kathmandu and Pokhara. An amazing trip and we will highly recommend Odynovo to anyone planning a tour.
Odynovo 15 Day Private Tour of Vietnam (North, Central, and South)
This was our first time using Odynovo Tours, but after extensive reviews and comparisons with other companies, we selected them based on their high customer ratings and reviews. We were not disappointed, in fact, Odynovo exceeded our expectations. First, was the itinerary, they tailored the tour to exactly what we wanted, major significant sites and deep cultural immersion. Hotel accommodations and meals were outstanding. The staff at the hotels were friendly, respectful, and provided excellent customer service. Our travel consultant was Lou...is Haung and he was awesome!. He was easy to communicate with, very accommodating to our needs, followed up timely, and checked in periodically during our tour to make sure everything was going as planed and that we were satisfied. Second, was our tour guides. First in Ho Chi Minh City was Victor (Nguyen Quoc Viet), he was a character, funny, lots of stories, but steeped in the history of South Vietnam. He looked out for us, made sure we were safe, happily answered any questions we had, and was always willing to give us a history lesson and we loved it. Next we were off to Hue, where we met Be (Nguyen Thi Hong Thuy), our tour guide for Central Vietnam. Victor had set the bar and once we met Be, we new she would meet or exceed our experience from Ho Chi Minh City. Be was energetic, and hit it of well with my wife through their love of history, flowers, and the fact that she was around our daughter’s age. Be continued our history lesson about Central Vietnam (Hue, Da Nang, Hoi An), demonstrating her deep knowledge about the history and culture. She too was very open to all of our question. She had a great personality, warm, open, and a great sense of humor. Lastly we were off to Hanoi, where we met Thang (Nguyen Van Thang), our tour guide for North Vietnam (Hanoi, Sapa, Ho Long Bay). Tang as well did not disappoint. He had a more serious personality, but after the first day warmed up to us and proved that he too could be funny, joke, and smile a lot. Thang was great for the last part of our trip because he was able to describe and contrast the differences in culture between North, Central, and South Vietnam. He too was extremely knowledgeable about the history, culture, and directions for the future. We were so impressed with his knowledge of the 54 recognized ethic groups in North Vietnam. We walked through many of the villages in Sapa, interacting and eating with the villagers. We had a couple of travel issues related to our airline (not Odynovo) and Thang was very flexible and generous with his time to ensure we got it resolved and got to the airport and our flight on time. We could not have asked for a better group of tour guides and drivers. We would without exception, highly recommend the Odynovo Tours and their team to our family and friends.

Private China tour
We had been planning a 10 day private tour of China and our representative at Odynovo was Mr. Reinself Wei. Mr. Wei was a pleasure to deal with and helped us to plan a tour of China that we were truly exited about. We made several changes to the initial proposed itinerary which were made quickly and easily (i.e., Mr. Wei and Odynovo were very accommodating). He responded immediately to every communication. I also thought the value of the tour we planned was excellent. Unfortunately we had to cancel our tour because to the outbreak of the ...Coronavirus. Again, he was very understanding and put through a full refund of our tour deposit. When we return to China, or any other destination served by Odynovo, I will not hesitate to use the services of Odynovo and Mr. Wei.
Our Trip To Kathmandu
Our trip to Kathmandu with my family was absolutely fantastic. Our guide Uttaranchal Manandhar was incredibly informative about the various temples and sites she took us to around the city. She was very friendly and helped us find a dentist when one of my bands broke and she did her best to translate and make me feel comfortable. Most of all, she did a great job doing her best to take the most exciting pictures of us in all of the different locations. Our guide, Uttaranchal Manandhar was wonderful and Odynovo did a great job setting up a fun trip for my family and me.
Incredible Trek to Poon Hill
Four of us decided to trek in the Nepal Himalayas. My son and daughter, both in their mid-twenties, and I (64 year old mom) have spent our lives hiking in the mountains of the western national parks of the U.S.A. My son’s wife is new to hiking, but was eager to try it out and to see the Himalayas in the process. Reinself at Odynovo worked with us to plan our itinerary and book our trip. He was really responsive, especially when we had last minute changes.
We only had seven days to trek with work schedules. We originally planned to trek ...
Questions & Answers
I am interested in a trip to Northern India, Nepal and Bhutan. How can you help? I must say after reading so many 5 star reviews I now have high expectations.
Some of the Places to see in North India are New Delhi, Jaipur, Agra, Khajuraho, Varanasi. New Delhi, Jaipur and Agra are close by, but best to travel by air to Khajuraho, Varanasi & Kathmandu (Nepal). I have not been living in India for several decades now, so am not very familiar with Air connection and travel to Bhutan. I am sure an organization like Odynovo will be able to help set it up.
Since you are looking at Odynovo, why not contact them and tell them what you like: food, culture, history, etc. And they will provide an itinerary as where to go and what to do for you to start.
