I could not have asked for this tour to be more perfect! Alana put together an excellent itinerary for me to enjoy Hangzhou, and I highly recommend booking this tour. Alana spoke English very well and was able to answer any questions I had. Since I was traveling solo, she was happy to take any photos I wanted and she also knew of the best photo spots! I’m very thankful for this, and I will always cherish these memories in Hangzhou.

Thanks so much for sending Berlin to take us on our full day tour to West Lake. She is an amazing young girl and a fantastic guide.She was able to give us so much in-depth information and historical back ground on all the places we visited and was friendly and enjoyable to spend the day with. Everything went smoothly from the Bullet Train ride to being dropped back at our hotel.We had a great day! Many thanks to Berlin.

We had a fabulous time and Hangzhou. The trip was extremely well planned and worth the visit. Snow, our guide is the best. She had thorough knowledge of all the sites and it was as good as going on a trip with a friend. She handled all our requests professionally and politely. Everything was well organized - from the boat ride at the lake to the visit to the tea plantations and Buddha temple. We also had an excellent lunch at one of the local restaurants. Overall it was a day well spent.

My guide was good. She knew the tour well. I recommend this private tour because the guide is able and willing to accommodate anyone’s personal needs or preferences. We took longer hikes and climbed more flights of stairs because that’s what I preferred to do. I skipped the market and went to the the tower stop instead which was not on the itinerary but was offered to me as an option. The food was authentic and not in a place a tourist would find on their own. I would recommend this tour to anyone.

This is a very enjoyable and informative tour as I got to know about the history and development of Hangzhou. The tour guide Alana is an experienced and knowledgeable person who explained to us the information of the various places. She took care of our needs especially for my elderly parents. We are under good care during the trip and will surely engage her.

This was a great day. The tour description promises fully customized and that is what we got. We communicated in advance that we were interested in history and art, and wanted no tea plantations. I did some preparation reading, sent a list of potential sites, took feedback and arrived at a full day. Alana, our guide, had excellent English and managed both the logistics and the pace of the visit very well, we were always moving but never felt rushed. Picked up by private car at hotel and taken to train station where Alana managed the transit. Second class train seats quite comfortable and acceptable, as we sped past golden rice fields nearly ready to harvest. In Hangzhou we had the same private car and driver all day. Went to West Lake in morning, and had a boat ride. Then for lunch Alana had to do some quick regrouping since clients usually taken to restaurant near tea plantations. She found a wonderful place and ordered an abundant meal with soup and 4 dishes. This was the best Chinese meal we had on our week-long trip in Shanghai area. Then in afternoon, to Feilai to see the wonderful Buddhas carved into the mountain, followed by the adjacent Lingying Temple, with golden Buddha and Song era pagodas. We ended the day with a reversed perspective – in the morning we saw the Leifeng Pagoda in the distance from West Lake, now we went to Leifeng Pagoda and saw the panoramic views of West Lake. If only all pagodas would retrofit and elevator in the exterior stairs and an interior elevator! Then off to the train station for our return to Shanghai, where another car and driver met us and Alana dropped us back at our Hotel. The tour is a bit pricy but it was exactly what we asked for and very well done.
