Great day out and a must-do when in Shanghai. The scenery was breathtaking! I especially enjoyed the West Lake sightseeing cruise.
An enjoyable day with an informative tour guide. Thank you.
Awesome tour, so much to see here , very nice part of china, and close to Shanghai, Great tour guide very helpful and informitive. well worth doing if you have a day to spare the lake and boat trip was great and the gardens and tea house good .. Recomend this
Worth its while
I enjoyed my day. I wish my tour guide was a little more informative at the sights on the history. He spoke a lot to the driver in Chinese all day. I had to ask a lot of questions rather than the guide offering information.

Very poor. Traffic was terrible. We did not go to half the places the viator website said we would. We drove a very long way to the lunch stop then had to drive all the way back again. Not impressed.
It's ok, it gives you an idea of the city.
I was hoping for a rural contrast to Shanghai (where I go for business frequently). However, Hangzhou is almost 10MM people and is just as urban as any other major metro in China.
It was a good trip, however I wld have liked to spent more time in the Lake area-and the boat trip was pretty short. However the guide was helpful and I very much appreciated the effort she went to to have my jacket that I had left in the Restaurant returned to me. The driver for both our trips was exceptional-he managed to drive through peak traffic at a reasonable speed and somehow direct us through without any problems or feeling unsafe. He was great.
The tour was fantastic. Please cater for tourist who have special dietary requirements.
Guide and driver were friendly and helpful. It is a long day trip, two hours each way, and it would be good to add something else to the Hangzhou end to make the journey more worthwhile. The West Lake itself was lovely. The pagoda visit after lunch was a bit of a non-event. Lunch itself was inedible.
Hangzhou is a lovely city, and West Lake there is a must-see. The venerable Longjing tea plantation tour and tasting were excellent, if a thinly-disguised ploy to stimulate the buying impulse. The problem with this daytrip is that the majority of one's time is spent in a van, picking up and dropping off fellow travellers and going to and from Shanghai. Fast train might be the better transportation method. The lunch place was disappointingly mediocre and lacked a lake view. Lastly, our guide added little to the experience. His role seemed simply to be shepherding us to and from the bus and the boat on the Lake. All in all, the Hangzhou day trip served as an enticing but hardly satisfying introduction to one of China's top 10 destinations.
Not recommended. Hangzhou wasn't as beautiful as advertised. Our guide wasn't very informative. The Suzhou and Zhouzhang Water Village Day tour is a much better side trip from Shanghai.
long way to go but was well worth the visit, beautiful scenery really enjoyed it.
The drive time was very long in a small minibus which was a bit of a drawback. Otherwise a very enjoyable day.
