Thank you, Nancy, for a great day in Hangzhou! We had so much fun seeing everything with you. We loved the stories and history you told about the things we were seeing. So nice to get to know you. Come visit sometime in America!

It was amazing. I loved it. Since i travelled alone, it was a nice introduction to the town and its sites. They picked me up at the trainstation it was much bigger than i thought and the we explored. We saw the tea fields, visited temples and gardens. The guide was so nice and we had a laugh. I really enjoyed it

My Husband and I booked a day private tour through Viator. Out guide was Bonnie. She met us at the train station at the pre-arranged time, and the tour started immediately, with us driven by car to our first destination - the West Lake. The whole day of touring Hangzhou was absolutely amazing. Bonnie has a depth of knowledge which comes from living in the city all her life, she had wealth of information on the touristy sites we visited, and in the meantime was always happy to answer all my questions I had about the local culture, traditions, and the current life in China. Sorry about all the questions!! We visited the historical sites, religious sites, and the tea plantation, and had delicious lunch. Bonnie's English is very fluent, and if you get her as our guide you are very lucky! We learned so much more about the history of Hangzhou and the sites we visited, and I believe that doing a private tour allowed us to learn so much more than during a usual group tour.
Thank you Bonnie, and if your travels will ever take you to China I would absolutely recommend you visit Hangzhou, as it was amazing.

An amazing host who would have done anything for us she looked after a sick family member like she was one of us!, a peaceful lunch in the mountains and great sightseeing. Just try and avoid purchasing anything from the tea plantation, they put the hard sell on you.

Note from Viator: 

TOUR OPERATOR COMMENT: Dear Anthony, Thanks for your review and your praise for our team. Yes, you are right, the tea plantation area serves very good quality tea and that area is one of the most beautiful parts in Hangzhou. A must going place for all the tourists visiting Hangzhou. Tea is the main source of income in this area as well. It's an idea place for tea lovers, nature lovers. Next time, if you or your friends come back to hangzhou, you can ask our guide to skip the tea testing part if you are not tea drinker or not interested in tea. Our tours are 100% flexible and 100% customized for our clients. And we guarantee that our guides never push our clients to buy any tea there. We even ask and train our guides to help some tea lovers to purchase the tea standing by their sides. As a leading travel agency in Hangzhou, we represented all the Hangzhou travel agencies called the tea plantation to stop selling tea to the tourists who is not interested with a compulsive push. And they promised it will never happen again. Looking forward your next trip to Hangzhou!

We had a great time on this tour and learned more in one day than we could have in weeks of walking around on our own. Bonnie was fantastic. She spoke excellent English and was able to answer every question we had. Having an air conditioned car waiting for us at the end of each stop was worth the price of the tour alone. Highly recommended.

We were picked-up by Bonnie at the hotel lobby promptly, the day itinerary went smoothly according to plan, sufficient to give us a good overview of Hangzhou. Bonnie was friendly and knowledgeable. Although it was an English tour, however we conversed in Mandarin, and managed to gather many other local tips including night market where we visited that evening. The driver was equally competent and safe. Overall it was a very pleasant and enjoyable day trip.

Great tour with David, would highly recommend as he is from Hangzhou and has a great deal of knowledge. We were able to tailor our tour and David was very flexible. Sam was also very helpful and accessible for us to reconfirm our pick up time. A very professional team and the best way to see Hangzhou if you have limited time. The driver was also very professional. Just a wonderful experience overall.
Thanks again David and Sam! We'll be in touch when we are back to Hangzhou. Tina

I enjoy the sightseeing tour conducted by Bonnie. She's professional, and she knows her stuff. I was glad that other than the tour, she has provided some recommendations for good food.

Absolutely fantastic tour! David was really friendly and obviously loves his city. Hangzhou's quite spread out so having a guide and a vehicle was most helpful. We most enjoyed that David was willing to go off-road - he brought us to a wonderful bamboo grove that isn't in the itinerary. Plus, we're Chinese diaspora ourselves, so instead of the historical old street, he showed us around modern Hangzhou and we had a great chat about the city and life in the city. Thanks very much, David!

The word ultimate is an accurate description for this tour. We were delighted with the selection of sites visited, delighted with our outstanding tour guide, Bonnie, and found her depth of information and attention to detail engaging. Bonnie made the best of every minute, sharing indepth information, answering questions, pointing out small details we would certainly have missed without her experienced eye. Every site was given maximum attention, and we left each enriched for the experience. Bonnie shared with us the country she knows and loves, and we came to experience and love China through her sharing. Balancing bustling activity with periods of calm, Bonnie gave a tour we will fondly remember. We highly recommend this most efficient, organized, satisfying, and enlightening tour company.

I don and #39;t normally sign up for tours but I had two days in Hangzhou and a 74year old father to consider. David was helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. My dad is slightly deaf so I appreciated the fact that David spoke slowly, clearly and answered all his questions with ease.

I can't say enough positive things about my experience touring Hangzhou for the day with Bonnie, it was simply, one of my best tours ever.

I booked a private day tour off the Viator app with only about 16 hours notice, and everything went more than smoothly. As soon as I booked the tour, I called Bonnie directly to ask her the best way to meet I was coming on the train from Shanghai and she told me that she would be at the train station waiting for me with a sign she was, and she even recommended specific train numbers and times from Shanghai - that was incredibly helpful, as China's high-speed rail schedules are daunting for foreigners. Moreover, Bonnie and the driver picked me up in a very comfortable and nice car, and gave me bottled water.

I also told her over the phone specifically which attractions I wanted most to see I was most interested in seeing pagodas, temples and Buddha mountain carvings, along with shopping, and what my priorities for the day were.

Bonnie and the driver were incredible, to say the least, at one point pulling over and re-routing our day when I saw yet, another pagoda, in the distance that I wanted to experience first hand. Not only can you not get that treatment on a group tour, but many private tours are not that accommodating. Also, when I mentioned to Bonnie that I wanted to buy yet another silk dress, but that I was running out of money, she suggested taking me to a store that specialized in silk and was off the tourist path, which would save me money. We squeezed this in to the very end of our day, and she was right, and I managed to spend only US150 on a dress that I saw the following day in Shanghai for 250 - that was a great bonus!

In addition to being a great tour guide, Bonnie was incredibly nice, always happy and smiling. Her English is fluent, and talking to her was a pure delight. I truly loved my day with her, and I believe that I gained a new friend in the process. I highly recommend touring with Bonnie.

Excellent tour. The scenery at West Lake is breathtaking the stone carvings at Feilai Feng and the Buddhist figures at Lingyin Temple are very interesting. Our tour guide, Bonnie, is very knowledgeable about the area and told us many interesting stories about the background of these sights. Thanks to Bonnie, we had a great time in touring these world class sights in Hangzhou.

The Hangzhou private tour made us very relaxed. We were not in haste, we had enough time to visit the attractions. Drivers and tour guides picked us up at 9:30, not very early, so we had a good rest that we had enough energy for a day of tourism activities. This itinerary includes all the top attractions in Hangzhou,we could visit the most famous scenic spots in Hangzhou, walk from the remote retreat of the Lingyin Temple to the traditional Chinese Hamlet of Amanfayu village,particularly ,we could chose lunch at a local restaurant or learn how to prepare an authentic dish at a tea farmer 's home own expense,it was so distinctive from other tours. Our guide explained so carefully , we enjoyed the life of the people of Hangzhou,that we felt we have integrated into one .Besides,Hangzhou private tour provided water supply along this trip,so we could prepared without water, save a lot of things .Thanks to this trip, so that we had a profound understanding of the city of Hangzhou .
