Recommended Accommodation for Your Journey

Good accommodation choice will in no doubt enhance your tour experience. Our well-established partnership network with key hotel chains in India, Nepal, Bhutan and Sri-Lanka will bring you the benefits of competitive hotel rate and guaranteed room availability.

We pick hotels for you based on:

Location: geographically convenience values for your precious holiday time. So properties we use are either in downtown area close to main city attractions and amenities, or convenient for sightseeing or transportation.
Facility & Service Quality: all hotels are inspected strictly and regularly, must be with great performance on accommodating English speaking customers, and excellent feedbacks from our pervious clients as well.
Diversity for Choice: many styles and grades of hotels are available for different budgets, tastes and culture backgrounds.

Hotel Criteria for Each Tour Class

Note: Bhutan is less developed with fewer hotels criteria for choice, and most of the hotels there aren't as high standard as those in Western society.

Hotel Arrangement for Standard Tour Class

Usually conveniently located and meet the basic requirements of a comfortable stay: decorative lobbies and nice guest rooms with AC, TV, hot water, shower and private bathrooms. On-site restaurants may be average in size but offer breakfast, lunch and dinner. In most cases, staffs have basic command of English. Usually 3 star hotels are adopted.

Hotel Arrangement for Comfortable Tour Class

Normally you'll stay at formal and large hotels conveniently located with shopping, dining and entertainment facilities nearby. Quality service, fully furnished rooms, restaurants, room service, fitness center and swimming pool (in some cases there is no pool) all together offer an above-average accommodation experience.
Usually good 4-star hotels are adopted or boutique hotels at request. Hotels best available will be arranged if no qualified choice, e.g. in remote area.

Hotel Arrangement for Superior Tour Class

Usually properties are conveniently located with shopping, dining and entertainment facilities nearby and offer a better service and hotel facility than that in hotels of Comfortable Tour Class. Usually 4-4.5 star hotels or boutique hotels are adopted.

Hotel Arrangement for First Tour Class

Deluxe hotels with high-end service and an extensive range of facilities for an excellent accommodation experience. Multiple restaurants on site with extensive menus for choice, room service available 24/7, fitness center and concierge service round out the experience. Usually 5 star hotels are adopted.

Hotel Arrangement for Deluxe Tour Class

The most luxury hotels are used and only available in some particular cities. These properties have top-notch service and unique location, such as a lake or a historic site, and usually incorporate some of the country’s most exquisite architecture traditions. Usually top 5 star or the best available hotels are adopted.

Meals

Normally, India Odyssey Tours put breakfast in your itinerary except for in Bhutan (all meals included). Lunch won’t be included for the sake of tour convenience, while dinner is also excluded as some travelers might want a little culinary adventure themselves. But surely your tour guide/driver is always glad to offer their advice.

Breakfast

It is normally served at the hotel where you stay. Depending on the hotel, the breakfast would be in western style, local style, or a combination.

Lunch

Usually lunch won’t be included considering the fact that sometimes travelers may want to stay somewhere longer/shorter or need other minor changes during daily sightseeing, and it’s better to decide the lunch site then rather than pre-arranging it. For sure our tour guides/drivers will be happy to advice good places to you, and we strongly suggest qualified local restaurant or hotels around the scenic spots for the sake of your health.

Dinner

Dinners will not be included in your meal plan unless you have that requirement. Enjoying the local food could be one of your best experiences in the incredible India & South Asia. This is why we offer you this flexibility of food choice, and you can always get advice from your tour guides/drivers.

If you have certain food allergies or special requirements such as vegetarian food, let us know. We will do our best to accommodate your needs.

We just completed the 46 day, yes an "Odyssey" tour of these 3 great destinations. We had a great experience as we were backed by Mavis at Odyssey daily if the need of some help arose as it does in all complicated itinerary. Mavis was very professional, patient and helpful in planning and executing this tailor made trip. We recommend using Odyssey-Mavis to plan your future trip. Sam and Michela Alibrando

We were focussed on Mughal era forts, palaces and monuments in Delhi, Agra, Jaipur, Nagaur and Jodhpur - and we managed a bit of shopping too. Odyssey's Monica Mo did a great job in customizing the 11 day itinerary and responding to our preferences for sites and hotels. We were well-supported by Odyssey representatives when arriving in and leaving from New Delhi airport.
We didn't try to do too much and were satisfied that we gained some knowledge and insights in the brief time we had. We were very pleased with our driver Suresh Kumar - his driving skills, his conversation, his vehicle, and his general level of concern for us. Local tour guides were all proficient and extended our enjoyment of the sites with their understanding of relevant history.
We would highly recommend Odyssey Tours.

Thank you very much to Kyle Li and Odyssey India for arranging an amazing custom 24 day trip through India. His patience in reworking the itinerary several times was greatly appreciated as were his suggestions. The entire trip was magical and went off without a single problem. We were met when and where expected and treated with kindness and hospitality by the various drivers, reps and guides. Thank you so much. It was a trip to remember forever. India Odyssey is highly recommended. Thank you!!

I was wanting a tailor made 3 day itinerary of the Golden Triangle as I was on a short layover. I contacted Odyssey and was lucky enough to be put in touch with Miranda. I have worked in travel for a decade and am extremely finicky about every last detail (I would not be the easiest client by a long shot). I changed things up so many times and Miranda was just ideal in dealing with me and was so flexible and adaptable it blew my mind. We had the perfect trip and everything ran like clockwork. Miranda is a true asset to your business and I have recommended her far and wide to colleagues and clients as soon as they mention India. Really impressive and truly tailor made trips for any budget. Fabulous company and fabulous staff.

We have just returned from a 13 night holiday to India arranged by Catherine Wang .As two mature travelers who were taking their first trip to India we were a but unsure of how we would cope with such a different place to anywhere we had travelled before.Catherine had been very easy to deal with during the planning stages of our holiday ,always replied very quickly and helped put everything we wanted to do together in one package. We hoped that the holiday would be as easy as the planning. And it was, everything happened just as planned and we had a fantastic trip, all the hotels were lovely and there was always someone to help us and look after us. We were delighted when Catherine called us while on tour to check that everything was OK. On our last transfer in Delhi we had a 8 hour layover at the airport which we were not looking forward to ,but much to our delight a car and driver had been organized to take us into the city to do some final sightseeing, this was such a better option than just sitting at the airport. We will certainly be using Catherine to organize our next holiday.
