During National holiday week in October can be very crowded. We book this private tour with the hope our guide would navigate the crowds. It was excellent. We missed all the crowds by arriving early and were able to tour the ancient town in relaxed atmosphere. As the crowds started to build we left the ancient town to a local farm and were able to pick Oranges and Dragon Fruit. The farm was 15min away from the ancient town. After the farm we headed back to the Ancient town and had lunch. This time we went to a less crowded part of the ancient town and walked some of the less traveled alley ways. National holiday week in October can be crowded, but with our private tour guide it was a success in avoiding what could be a very busy time. To make this happen our guide contacted us to start at 7:00am instead of the normal 9:00. Arriving early we did not miss anything. And coming back for lunch made us appreciate how nice it was and gave a second chance to look around.

Alana was amazing, arrived on time and was very detailed when explaining how the tour would work. The transport was very spacious and clean with water provided. The tour of the village was great and she even showed us some secret viewing spots, along with helping us decipher the lunch menu for our tastes. We would definitely recommend the tour to anyone with 5 hours or so to spare as it gets you away from the hustle and bustle of Shanghai to a peaceful town where even the locals go to relax. Thanks Alana.
