Excellent tour. The scenery at West Lake is breathtaking the stone carvings at Feilai Feng and the Buddhist figures at Lingyin Temple are very interesting. Our tour guide, Bonnie, is very knowledgeable about the area and told us many interesting stories about the background of these sights.

The Hangzhou private tour made us very relaxed. We were not in haste, we had enough time to visit the attractions. Drivers and tour guides picked us up at 9:30, not very early, so we had a good rest that we had enough energy for a day of tourism activities.
