This is another experience of Chinese culture. We experienced the daily chores of people living in these villages as they did many years ago. The architecture of the ancient bridges and houses are all so eye-catching. The leisurely boat ride was very enjoyable and the taste of the local food is yet another experience not to forget.

I had a private guide who was very good although he explained nothing about the history of the villages to which we went which was disappointing. The villages themselves, while quaint and 'old world' are real tourist traps, unfortunately, although this is not a criticism of the tour. Just don't expect what the promotional descriptions suggest!

1 star rating: I do not recommend this July 2010

The guide focused in one aspect of the visit of Zhujiaojiao the visit to a house and beautiful garden but did not take us to the other main points yemples, Pharmacy to be visited in the water village. Then... we really do not know what is the 7 treasure Town, we were just taken to a market neighborhood of Shanghai and then directly taken to a SILK factory, obviously for us to spend money. Very disapointing.
