Jamie, our guide was awesome. She told us a lot of interesting things about Shanghai itself, the villages around it and even some cultural things. She really put much effort into the tour and her enthusiasm was lovely. Jamie made this trip extremely special for us and was at all times very helpful, friendly and professional. I really recommend to book this tour as there is nothing to regret. The village is beautiful, there is so much to see and learn and we enjoyed every minute. It was totally worth it.

the trip was value for money . notice that it is outside of the city if you plan to be close to the city. the trip with the boat is short just to take some good pictures. our guide Roy was very well educated friendly and spoke the English language pretty well .also he helped us for general info except the standard trip schedule infos such us providing us infoa for the nightlife etc..our day was a holiday day so consider that for the heavy traffic

We were really lucky because we had a private tour with our amazing guide Grace to Hangzhou. Although the weather wasn't that good Grace made our tour a great experience for us. The West Lake where we had a 45 minute boat ride was beautiful. The lunch at a local restaurant was the best we had in and around Shanghai. It is a long drive to Hangzhou but totally worth it!

We had a great time. It was my 3rd trip to Hangzhou from Shanghai and I learned more from Grace, our Grayline guide, then I did with the other two trips combined!

A great tour with a great guide

We will recommend this tour. Our guide, Frank, was polite, nice and knowledgeable.
