Our guide, Berlin, was exceptional in enthusiasm and responsiveness to us. Her English was very good and we had some great fun with her on English idioms!!! She tailored the tour to our interests and never failed to provide us with more than we had hoped for. The day we spent in Hangzhou was toward the end of our month long holiday and we had seen a lot of Asia.....but Lingyin Temple was magical, the tea plantations were lovely, our stroll around West Lake and walk along the streets of Hangzhou were lively and very entertaining. All of this exceeded our expectations. Berlin was so engaging that she made our trip to Hangzhou very, very special!! We highly recommend this trip - and especially Berlin - to anyone!

It was an all day tour full of new experiences, educational and beautiful. Our guides Alana and Emma were great! They took the time to explain the culture and history. Great time!

A very organized trip with spot on timing, an enjoyable trip complimented with a wonderful lunch. We enjoyed the experience as much as the friendly Berlin in making this trip most memorable.

What an amazing trip to Hangzhou. The day and sites were incredible, and our guide, Berlin, made it all possible. Having traveled a lot, I know and appreciate the difference having a connection with the right guide can make. We had this with Berlin. Her knowledge of the locations, history, and the country overall kept us intrigued and fascinated the entire time. She had everything coordinated and organized, and took us everywhere we could have wanted to go. She was also SO FUN! We all felt like fast friends while exploring a new area. Thank you for an unforgettable day. I’d give this ten out of ten stars!!

This tour was well worth the money. Pick up was easy - right from our hotel lobby. Queena made the trip to Hangzhou very straight forward and easy with train tickets ready. The bullet train was quite an impressive way to travel! Our first stop in Hangzhou was a boat tour on West Lake, which was absolutely breathtaking. A can’t-miss stop for sure! After that, we headed up the mountain for a local lunch. We didn’t know what to pick, so Queena was ready with some delicious recommendations. We took a stroll through the tea fields, then on to Ling Ying Temple. The temple was absolutely amazing - probably the highlight of the day. It was such an incredible experience to see this huge mountain temple and learn more about Buddhism. We finished the day with some local shopping before heading back to Shanghai. I would recommend this tour to anyone. The sights are amazing and are sure not to disappoint. What an incredible day!

Hangzhou is a beautiful city and one day barely does it justice, but our guide Berlin was able to give us the highlights. We visited the Lingyin Temple, also known as the Temple of the Soul's Retreat the Longjing village, home of the famous Dragon Well tea where we also had lunch and the West Lake, which was beautifully featured during the 2016 G20 Summit look up the ceremonies on Youtube if you can. Berlin was helpful, knowledgable, and mindful of our needs. Would definitely recommend!

Today was a great day! Berlin thought of everything, and was attentive to whether I was hungry, thirsty or whatever I needed. She even brought me a snack and a fan to be sure I would be comfortable during the day. She also made sure that I knew the itinerary for the day and explained the procedures for the bullet train well. The train ride from Shanghai was clean and enjoyable and a great way to see the countryside. The Ling Yin temple was amazing and Berlin did a great job of explaining it all to me. The temple was really beautiful and so much larger than I imagined. We had a traditional lunch that was very relaxing and then headed to West Lake which was amazingly beautiful as well. The Lotus flowers were in high bloom and really lovely. I was surprised at how large West Lake was and Berlin explained the history of it all so well. We had extra time to explore an historical street and stop for a coffee before taking the train back to Shanghai. I was meeting my dad and his colleagues at a restaurant when returning to Shanghai and Berlin insisted on making sure I got there safely. Having a driver for the day in Hangzhou was so convenient and comfortable. It was a hot day and the comfortable, new and air conditioned van made it possible to cool off and refresh between stops. Berlin is a lovely young woman and did everything possible to ensure I had a great day. I would highly recommend this tour and Berlin! It was a perfect day!

EXCELLENT TOUR! This was our second tour in Shanghai and Alana did an awesome job! First, she and the driver were on time to picked us up at the hotel. Picked us up in a nice comfortable van with 6-8 seaters. She went with us to Hangzhou and another driver in Hangzhou picked us up in a nice clean 6-8 seaters van. Both drivers doesn't speak english, but they were very nice. Started off we took the boat ride about 45 mins - 1 hr around West Lake. Then we went to the tea plantation for about 15 mins walk just to see the field. Then headed to lunch. By the way, it was one of the best lunch we had while we tour Asia. We then headed to the temple for a couple of hours. Beautiful temple! Through out the trip to Hangzhou there was a lot of walking and very hot! Our last stop, was to the shopping market. Nothing special, just like all the other shopping areas. Not sure if this shopping area is cheaper than others, since we didn't buy anything. From Shanghai to Hangzhou was about 1 and 1/2 hours train ride and back was about 1 hr train ride.
About Alana - she speaks fluently english and she was very sweet. She tried to make our day in Hangzhou as fun and comfortable as she can. She knows her materials by heart. We've been on many tours and met a lot of tour guides, by far she was the best one out all of the tour guides we had met. She took great pictures, got us small fans, and answered to all of our questions. The next day we had a million of questions and my wife texted her within a few mins she responses back fast. Thank you Alana for everything and all your recommendations for the restaurants were delicious! You were one of the reasons that make us wanting to go back to visit Shanghai.
