had a great time. helen our tour guide was ecxellent. she knew everything not only about the tour but about everything else. thank you Helen
Beautiful trip, especially the water village was exciting. Thanks to Helen, our tour guide who provided a lot of interesting information.
Overall was a good trip. Our Tour Guide had been so helpfull. She has appropriate knowledge on things she explained to us. Total pax 8, plus 1 Driver and 1 Tour Guide, hence 10 pax altogether. The van was bigger compare to the one provided for the Hangzhou Trip.
Zhouzhuang Water Village is a beautiful look into traditional China and a nice contrast from the busy and modern Shanghai. I can not recommend this day trip enough. Zhouzhuang is clearly on show for tourists, but I still found it authentic and a joy to wander through. If you do one day trip from Shanghai, make it to here. We also went to lovely traditional ancient house gardens in Suzhou which were peaceful, and our guide was great at explaining the history and way of life of centuries ago. There was also a stop at a silk factory in Suzhou which shows great behind the scenes workings of making silk. There is a chance to stock up on silk productsgifts for friends back home, but I didn't feel pressured to buy which was good. The day our tour group went there were only four of us was 40 degrees -- hot weather -- yet our guide Maggie was patient, and made sure we didn't miss anything, although we were keen to keep out of the sun. She was brilliant. Maggie was enthusiastic, friendly, and very flexible with our requests. She was great!
A great tour, and the guide was well informed and very helpful.
This is a "must do" trip. Excellent guide spoke good english and outstanding knowledge. A small group and great fun. One comment would be that the van design means that the windows are a little low so that passengers do not get the best view as we drive along. Otherwise - great!
The guide was excellent. He truly made it an enjoyable experience and was very knowledgable in several areas related to the tour. I have already recommended your company to friends of mine who will be traveling in China and particularly in Shanghai this year.
We had a great time! Our tour guide was very accommodating. Wait to buy your souvenirs until you take this tour!
I really like this little town, it is very traditional and peaceful. I recommend this activity
A great day without too much of a "tourist trap" feel to it - we weren't forced into too many shops where the guide gets a commission. Our guide had great English and a deep knowledge of the area.
Great trip, great guide and great organization! Everything was perfect! We learnt a lot of new things about the Chinese culture, we saw incredible places and we enjoy the trip, a perfect combination.
This was a great trip! The guide was very good and the sights we visited were absolutely beautiful! Even the scenery we passed in the van was interesting as it was very different from that in Shanghai. Highly recommended!
Was a great eye opener. Though Zhouzhuang Water Village was rather commercial, the entire atmosphere was great. Would love to have slightly more time to spend in Zhouzhang.
I could have spent more time in Zhouzhuang Water Village. Maybe we saw all that there was to see but it was an interesting place for just hanging out.
I was in a group of about 7 or 8 and the tour guide was very entertaining. A very enjoyable day.
This was a very nice day. The tour was very interesting, especially the silk factory and Zhouzhuang. I had no problem with the timing of any of the stops except possibly about 15 minutes too long shopping at the silk factory outlet. Very enjoyable.
The same as the Hagzhou tour -- just wonderful. The Water Village was just amazing. We would highly recommend this tour, too!
Great day tour with excellent guide and fantastic lunch. This was the best lunch in a 14 day tour of China.
this tour takes you to some beautiful places - needs to be slowed down and extra time taken to enjoy the sights better for international travelers
Good day out - too bad about the weather - but would recommend it to other Shanghai visitors. Pick up was on time, lunch was excellent, and guide very helpful. Drive was a little more than exciting, however, particularly on the wet roads.
