The pickup at the hotel went smoothly. In a small group we went towards Wasserstadt. There was very little going on during the week. At the weekend it is very crowded. Frankie took us through the city and told us interesting facts. He went out of his way to make our stay a pleasant one. The water city itself is definitely worth seeing and something special. The share of the stay in relation to the entire tour is rather short (approx. 2 hours), but sufficient in my eyes if you don't want to go out to eat. Zhouzhuang is 90 km from the center of Shanghai. In the usual traffic chaos there are 2 hours of travel time per route. I can definitely recommend the tour.

Ms. Elva responded very well to personal questions and gave us insights into everyday life in China. There was enough time to enjoy the impressions. The taxi was extremely well maintained. Good, safe driving style of the driver. Thank you!
