Suzhou and Zhouzhuang Water Village Day Trip from Shanghai

Shanghai, China

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review
Nov. 6,2010. We took this tour with high expectations, but to our disappointment, the garden in Suzhou was a let down. We had expected to see the administrators garden and the lingering garden, but they took us to the master of nets garden which we found out later was the least expensive and the smallest of all four gardens in Suzhou. We offered to pay for our own entrance fee to the administrators garden, which by the way was only a couple of blocks away from where we were, but the tour company wanted us to pay an additional 30 yuan per per person to drive us there, we were seven people in the mini van. In my opinion far too expensive considering the price we paid for the entire tour. We then decided to take a cab to the location, but we waited a half hour for one that never showed up . Afterwards we were taken to the next destination Zhouzhuang water village , thankfully this tour was worth it, but again we arrived one hour and a half prior to our being allowed to enter the old village.,the reason for this is apparently because the cost to enter was cheaper after three o'clock. Funny how they keep insisting that morning that we did not have enough time to visit the larger gardens. All in all I would recommend that you take a long distance bus available from the stadium to these locations and do it at your own pace and see exactly what you desire.

My Review
We took this tour on Nov. 05,2010. This was a very nice tour and in my opinion the only one of all the tours that we have taken in Shanghai that is really worth it. We got to see everything that we expected to see and the pace was good, considering all that we had to cover that day.

3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review
We were on this tour Nov. 05,2010. Nice way to see Shanghai, enjoyed the river cruise, but again the other items included in the tour package were eliminated by the tour guide or simply rushed through them just so that he could finish and get home.

Xi'an Half-Day City Tour - Shaanxi History Museum and Big Wild Goose Pagoda

Xian, China

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review
Very disappointing. When we were at the museum, the tour guide expected us to wait in line because the first 2000 people had free entrance to the museum. We paid extra so as not to wait. I believe that wen I book a tour with a company everthing is included and not have to pay my own entrance fee to the sites. The tour guide rushed us through the tour. The tours my be boring for the tour guide but for us, we expect to be give the necessary time to see the sites. I will never book another tour with your company.
