Worth the trip to get out of Shanghai and see true chine just 2 hours away from the big city
It was a very enjoyable day out and our guide Tom was knowledgeable and helpful. Both Suzhou and Zhouzhuang water village were beautiful destinations. We visited the master of the nets garden in Suzhou, made in the beautiful traditional Chinese style. The other highlight was the canal trip at Zhouzhuang water village. I thoroughly recommend this trip.
Our tour guide was amazing. It was pouring down with rain the day we went she managed to make it fun still. Full of knowledge about the places we visited. The water town was awesome and the gondola ride was a great way to see the town
Beautiful Water Village. We had a wonderful tour and an excellent guide!

It was a great tour. There were 6 of us and that made it easy to see things. Our guide,Joy, was delightful. She knew a lot and made sure we did too. We saw her the next day in a market and she was waving to get our attention. That was really nice. The Water village tour was worth taking
Excellent tour. Our tour guide was very friendly and informative. Expect some delays in pick-up time depending on traffic and the number of hotel pick-ups. Overall, I highly recommend this tour if you have a spare day in Shanghai.
Our tour guide, Joy, Was very knowledgeable and informative.
She was also very friendly and spoke very good english. We had a small group which made it easier to see everything. We also had a great lunch.
This trip was an absolute joy. And, you could not ask for a better guide than Tom. I would give it more stars if I could.
Loved this tour! Learned so much and our guide was amazing. Thank you for such an amazing experience and tour in Shanghai. We will never forget it.
This was an amazing trip and captured a different area of China that could not be understood in Shanghai.
Enjoyed myself thoroughly on this tour. Suzhou and Zhouzhuang were absolutely beautiful, and our tour guide, Joy, was a pleasure and had very good knowledge of the history and culture of our destinations. Zhouzhuang is a very charming little town. We got to take a boat ride through its waterways You might call it the Venice of the East, and it was so peaceful and serene. Occasionally though, the trip felt a little rushed. Zhouzhuang was gorgeous but I felt we were walking a bit too quickly to be able to enjoy the view and look around inside the shops. But I understand that perhaps we were a bit pressed for time. Another negative part was the amount of time spent driving to those locations - about 2 hours there and then back again. But this is unavoidable as Suzhou and Zhouzhuang are far from Shanghai.
Great trip. Frank was a great guide. Really enjoyed he water village
Quite a long drive but worth it.
Very interesting tour. We were lucky to be the only persons attending the tour so it was like a private tour for us. The visit of fishnet garden was really nice and the Zhouzhuang watervillage is maybe the best water village in China :- Definitely worth to visit ...

This is a nice change of pace from being in Shanghai. The gardens in Suzhou are beautiful and Zhouzhuang, while crowded, was very pretty. I was very impressed with the travel agency, not only because of the itinerary but because apparently I was the only person to book the tour for that day. May travel agencies would have canceled because of this. This travel agency sent me on my own private tour at no extra cost.
This was an excellent trip. We had a private tour of the water village which was fantastic. We loved
the silk factory. The meal at lunch time was excellent. Our tour guide Rita was friendly and easy to talk to.
Can't complain one bit.
Amazing places that are out of this World. Zhouzhuang is so unique and beautiful. Would go back and spend an overnight in one of the bed and breakfast in the village.
Had a wonderful time. The gondola ride was the highlight. Got a glimpse of China that you don't see in the large cities.
