Ms Joy was a joy! Her spoken English was good but I'm not sure how much she understood the questions we asked. But it was enough. The village is pretty and Mr. Wu garden and house were an added bonus.
The van driver was a hoot. Buckle up!

We arrived in the morning and took this tour from midday - we saw some of the surrounding country and our tour guide Frank was superb. He ensured we saw both the old and the new, the original and the reconstructed. Excellent.

Great tour that I enjoyed end to end. The tour guide is very friendly and fluent in English. It a good alternative if you don't have time to go to Suzhou

We did not actually do this half day tour. When we rang to confirm the pick up time we were offered instead a full day tour to Suzhou and Zhouzhuang water town with lunch included. We had a fantastic day. Our guide Frank was absolutely excellent. The driver was very competent especially in the early evening traffic jams in Shanghai as we returned.

A once-in-a-lifetime experience we will never forget. With our wonderful guide, Lee, we were able to take a trip back in time and experience ancient China in all its wonders. If you do nothing else when you are in Shanghai, take this tour.

Michael was a wonderful tour guide. Was offered a full day tour with no extra cost but was unable to fit in. Highly recommend this tour as its quite different from the city of Shanghai

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2012

The local tour operator upgraded us to a full day tour that included some other sights. The water village is very unique and reminded us of being in Venice, except that it is in China. Great boat tour and walking tour of the local village.
