Definitely recommend this tour! Walking up to the Faxi Temple was the highlight - but the overall day was just the right combination of sites, sounds, food and information. A walk on the broken bridge, ride on a lake boat, lunch at the Green Tea Restaurant, hike up to and then walking around the upper Faxi Temple, A visit to the green tea village and then a quick stop at the Silk Museum. Skillful leadership by Cindy made all the difference. Her knowledge and ability to easily manage the logistics made it seamless. A wonderful trip.

4 star rating: Recommended December 2015

We found this tour to be well organized. Enjoyed the Bullet train ride, which greatly reduce the time to get between Shanghai to Hangzhou. Found Hangzhou to be a much larger city than we thought it would be. The temples and the surrounding area were beautiful and very interesting. We were able to tour the temples and park area at our own pace. No crowds when we were there. The local tour guide was very knowledgeable and helpful. There was much more walking involved in this tour than we thought we would encounter and we were exhausted by the end of the day. Overall a worthwhile tour.

Great day out from Shanghai, if you have some time off, it is a great way to blow off some steam and get away from the city.

Cindy,our tour guide was lovely, had a good day. Was so busy tho that we only saw one temple and had to rush around the tea plantation. There was some hard sell in the plantation which wasn and #39;t expected. Paid alot for this tour and I don and #39;t think it was worth the money. Do it tho if there and #39;s a deal on.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better May 2016

Enjoyed the tour, and would especially complement our tour guide Yvon who made the experience all the better. However, the inclusions were not as advertised: 1 There was no private driver to meet us at Hangzhou. We had to catch taxis and use Uber cars to get around, which meant quite some time was spent waiting for pick-ups and 2 There was only one temple visit, not three as advertised.
