What a wonderful day with Berlin. She shared so much great information, answering all our many questions. She took such good care of us, with a fine lunch. Despite a busy day, we never felt rushed. We feel like we learned so much, and her warm friendly manner and good sense of humor made the day one we will never forget! Thank you, Berlin! Her enthusiasm even in the rain at West Lake was contagious. We highly recommend this tour and hope Berlin is your guide! The temple complex Ling Yin was spectacular, and so much more fascinating with such a knowledgeable guide!
We had a wonderful day in Hangzhou with Berlin as our guide .I definitely recommend this tour as this city has beautiful things to see. We began with a visit of the temple, and although it was raining heavily, Berlin made the visit very interesting. Later we went to see the tea plantations, which is a must. The views are spectacular and we enjoyed traditional local food. We finished at the west lake, a place where you will not stop taking pictures. Everywhere you look, there is something beautiful. Berlin was a very knowledgeable guide, kind and easy to be with. I will certainly recommend others to take this tour. It is really worth it. Thanks!
Met tour guide Queena 8.30am at our hotel lobby. Queena and the driver were punctual. We set off to Hang Zou in bullet train and arrived at Ling Yin Si (2nd largest temple in China) followed by tea museum tour and a nice lunch with local flavour. After lunch we went to Xi Hu (west lake) and took bullet train back to shanghai. Everything was planned smoothly. Queena tried her best to ensure we did not have to wait long for the driver in between destinations. She had profound knowledge of the history of China and described the places of interest very well. She also answered questions on almost anything we asked about China. Very impressed. Highly recommended.
I had the most wonderful with Berlin. The day was much more than I expected and Berlin was most informative, helpful and had such a delightful personality, I thought you should know that I think she is such an asset to your business.
We loved our tour with Berlin, definitely 5 stars!We learned a lot about tea and Buddhism, probably more than we have in the whole two weeks we have already been in China. The tour was comprehensive and perfect length, transport and pick up were also easy. Thank you for making it so easy.Berlin was smart, funny, and excellent at explaining everything about Hangzhou, West Lake, tea and even all of our questions about Shanghai! We loved her and would recommend her and the tour to all our friends. We wish Berlin were our guide for all of China :)
Amazing tour punctual pick up in the morning.Good places to visit. I saw the fei lai peak, ling yin temple, west lake, leifeng pogado and have lunch in the tea village and taste longjing tea. Nice restaurant with traditional Chinese food.Snow is a nice guide making all to transform a tour in an amazing experience. I will highly recommend this tour.
Our one day private trip to Hangzhou with Snow was fabulous! We were a family with kids and she was extremely kind, fun and super informative on all the history and stories about beautiful Hangzhou. We saw the west lake and had a lovely boat ride, the Dragonwell tea village and then ended with the most gorgeous visit to Lingyin temple and the Flying Peak. She even very kindly and patiently accommodated our request to stop for a small snack at the Four Seasons Hangzhou which we had heard was beautiful. My kids loved her personality too! Highly recommend this trip and Snow!
We had such a lovely time today visiting the tea plantation, enjoying authentic tea house lunch, exploring the gorgeous ling yin temple, relaxing on the boat ride, & seeing the stunning views from the pagoda!! The car service was very nice and convenient. Our tour guide was so kind, friendly, and informative as well! She also took great photos for us! We will definitely recommend this tour to our friends and family :)
Our trip to Hangzhou was an incredible experience. We enjoyed the beauty of the Lingyin Temple (try to find all 340 Buddha sculptures), and loved the food and tea in the Tea Village. The weather was incredible so we took the scenic and relaxing boat trip on West Lake. Our guide Snow was informative and tailored the experience to our wishes and spoke excellent English. Snow kept the pace of the trip smooth so we were able to see and experience everything yet still feel relaxed and stress free. Don’t hesitate- book this trip now.
We travelled to Hangzhou yesterday together with our aged parents. It’s a sight to see how crowded HongQiao train station was and despite the rush-hour crowd, we were escorted safely and smoothly to our first-class seats by our very experienced tour guide - Alana. The boat tour at West Lake was a lovely experience but for those who cannot swim, I suggest you take a bigger boat or ask for a safety jacket. The scenery is breathtaking and it was great opportunity to take photos. The lunch venue at LongJing tea plantation was one of the best we have had during our vacation here. The clay pot chicken soup was one of the best we have tasted (even better than most chicken soups we have had at home in Singapore/Malaysia). For those (especially some Caucasians) who detest seeing the entire chicken (head & claws) on their dinning table, should request for only the chicken soup without the entire chicken inside the clay pot. Seeing how the LongJing tea leaves were plucked by hand and prepared painstakingly, I now understand why the top grade LongJing is so expensive! Overall, we had a great time with Alana who is a bilingual tour guide and she was super attentive to all our needs. Highly recommended for anyone to choose Amazing Shanghai Travel and Alana for HangZhou day tour.
