Excellent trip. The guide arrived on time around 12:30PM at the hotel with a well kept SUV. We drove to the Water Village and the guide was well informed and patient during the trip and helped us with some graet pictures. Would recommend it anybody interested in doing this half a day trip without missing anything.

My tour guide Evan was great! Even with the traffic, we made good time and saw everything we were supposed to see. It was drizzling/rainy the day we went but that was fine since the village wasnt as crowded. The boat ride was fun and relaxing.
The hotel pick up and drop off was very convenient and the car we had driving us around was nice, clean, and comfortable. I'm glad to have booked this tour.

This was a lovely way to spend an afternoon. Our tour guide, Frank was a friendly and very informative young man. An extremely pleasant walk through the village with Frank pointing out and explaining many of the local cuisine. This was followed by a trip on the canal in a gondola, showing us a different perspective of the village. A very peaceful place to visit during the week, the weekends though might be a bit more hectic. I can definitely recommend this tour.

Ms Joy was a joy! Her spoken English was good but I'm not sure how much she understood the questions we asked. But it was enough. The village is pretty and Mr. Wu garden and house were an added bonus.
The van driver was a hoot. Buckle up!

We arrived in the morning and took this tour from midday - we saw some of the surrounding country and our tour guide Frank was superb. He ensured we saw both the old and the new, the original and the reconstructed. Excellent.
