    China Cycling Travel Questions and Answers:

  • Tour designing, Reservation, Confirmation

    1. Can you buy the international flight tickets for us?
    Usually we do not provide the International flights tickets, because we are not good at this part. And we know it is quite easy for our guest to search for a good offer from the Internet.

    2. What is the high season? What is the definition for the high season, shoulder season and low season?
    High season refers to the part of a year when the weather conditions and other factors are the best for traveling and usually there are more people traveling in the high season, so it's always the busiest time for the hotels, airlines, and travel agencies. Thus the price of hotel, air tickets, etc. is comparatively higher than that in other seasons.

    High season, shoulder season and low season is defined as:
    High season: April 1st to May 31st, Sep 1st to Oct 31st
    Shoulder season: June 1st to Aug 31st & Nov 1st to Nov 31st
    Low season: Dec 1st to Mar 31st

    There are slight differences of definition of this between different hotels, airlines, travel agencies in different regions.

    In Tibet high season is from July 1 to Oct 15. The rest of the year is the low season.

    China Odyssey Tours reserves the right to modify the definition of different seasons.

    Note: If you plan to travel during the high season, we suggest that you make reservations two to three months prior to your departure date.

    3. What's the weather like in China and what is the best season to cycle in China?
    China is a vast country with different climates, but generally speaking, spring is from April to June, summer from June to September, fall from September to October, while winter is from October to March, and usually it is colder and drier in the north in winter, and hotter and more humid in the south in summer.
    As for what is the best season to cycle in China, it depends on which area you tend to cycle through:
    1) for Yunnan area, the best months will be April, May, October and Early November.
    2) for Guilin area, the best months will be September, October and Early November.

    4. What kind of cycling tour(s) can I get from you?
    Right now, we offer two cycling tours involving Yunnan and Guilin areas, which are considered as the best parts for the cyclists. These tours feature with:

    1) These tours are fully escorted packages, which means in each area, you will have your own professional tour guide speaking your language and a private air-conditioned car/van/coach with your private driver at your service during your staying there, from meeting you at the airport (or train station) upon your arrival, showing you around, till seeing you off at the airport (or train station) for your next destination.

    2) We will offer back-up vehicle for luggage and bikes upon your request.

    3) Local maps are provided, so are coffee, fruit for the coffee break during the cycling days.

    It does not mean these two cycling routes are fixed, instead the routes can be customizable to meet your duration and special interests. Just let us know your own interests, which places you want to go, what you want to see and what you want to do, we can tailor-make a special tour plan for you for a special tour experience in your life.

    Note: If a group is bigger than 10 people, we can offer a private escort (national tour guide) who will be at your service from one city to another with the group during your whole trip in China.

    5. What is the latest time that I can make my reservation?
    We suggest you make reservations at least three months before the departure date. If you decide to travel to China in May, September or October which is peak season, we recommend you make the reservations five months before your departure date. Late reservations can not be guaranteed for the availability of domestic flights, hotel rooms, etc.

    6. How to plan my China trip with you?

    7. Do you offer any discounts if we have many people in our group?
    Yes, our quotation is based on the size of the group, which can be divided into three categories as: 2-5 persons, 6-9 persons, 10 or over 10 persons, the more people in your group, the more discounts can you have.

    8. Do children get discounts?
    It depends upon the age of your children:
    1) Any child over the age of 12 is considered as an adult by the travel agency and hotel industry, thus will no longer get any discount.
    2) Children who are under 12 years old can get 50% discount for the flight booking. For hotel booking, stay for free in their parent's room using the existing bedding, requirement for an extra bed will incur extra charge.
