Great tour!!
, Jan 2020
This was a great tour and Bruce was amazing. He was very knowledgeable about Chinese history, explained every room and artifact at the water village in detail and had a great sense of humor. This tour also allows enough time to walk around alone to do a little shopping. I would definitely recommend this tour and hopefully you get Bruce as your tour guide. They were very timely as far as pick up at a hotel near me.
Really interesting and fun outing

Though touristy, the town is genuine and interesting. Grace was our guide and was really great. The town is beautiful. I really loved the gardens and bridges. Was fine skipping the silk factory to spend more time in the village.

I ended up being the only one on the tour so it was personalized. The guide fell right asleep as we got in the car to drive and soundly slept the whole time, not providing any information or guidance. The town was pretty small and old, and in hindsight I would probably just try to go to nanjing on the high speed train. This smaller town is good for anyone short on time but I would not recommend this tour as the guide then slept the entire way back as well. The tour said we would stop as the silk factory, but this was skipped. They very awkwardly pressured me for tip money at the end which I found completely inappropriate.

The guide is very knowledgeable and open to discussion. I would ask to spend less time at the garden and have more free time to wander the stalls after the gondola ride. They need to allow at least an hour for private walking.

The water trip and the tour of the markets was great. The trip there was ok, but the bus trip home was a bit long-winded. Overall, I'm glad I went, but once was enough.

water village was worth seeing. Our guide, good knowledgeable on topic of the village and area. Not good the price for one. We could get a taxi there and back plus entrances to village cheaper. Did not see silk factory that was part of tour with no reason why, spent more in traffic wrong time of day.

The tour was great except for period from 1st October till 7th October Shanghai has national holiday every year....avoid this time at all costs...besides being crowded normally this time it's absolutely crowded...hard to see things as SO many people on holiday ...tour was too quick, not enough time to look at things as too many people plus long queues for anything worth while ,...disappointed we were here at this time
