My sister and I spent a half day with Annie touring Zhujiajio mid January. Annie picked us up on time in our hotel for a nice drive out of the city and dropped us off at a spot of our choice. The tour was interesting and informative. I highly recommend this tour next time you are in Shanghai

We were picked up promptly at our hotel and on the time we requsted. We were then taken to the Zhujiajiao water village by a nice and comfortable Buick van. Annie, our tour guide, was very friendly, witty, and knowledgeable about the history, street foods, merchant, and garden in Zhujiajiao. She lets us enjoy the tour on our own pace, lets us try different street food along the way, and does not rush us in any way. And most importantly she knows the best spots for taking lovely photos, although some weird crouching are sometimes needed LoL.. All in all a great experience!!! Thanks Annie...

I would recommend this trip to anyone who has some time to spend outside of shanghai. It was a very cute town with beautiful scenery and unique little shops. Our guide, Annie did an amazing job touring us around, explain the culture and interesting little tidbits of the history in the area. I loved every minute.

I attended this tour with a group of friends today with our wonderful guide Annie! Annie was very knowledgeable and friendly- she shared interesting information about the history of Shanghai and Zhujiajiao on the van ride over. Pickup at our hotel was prompt! At the water town, we were able to stop into whatever shops interested us, and Annie helped us find shops that were reputable. She also gave us an excellent tour of an old garden home while we were there, and stopped to take plenty of pictures! Overall, I highly recommend this tour to anyone looking for an easy day trip from Shanghai.
