It was a nice and quiet getaway from Shanghai city to Zhujiajiao water town for the afternoon in particular if you do not have the time to travel to Suzhou or other far away water towns. Our guide Jerry provided good details of the places we visited, and the driver was safe and on time. Overall, a very pleasant experience of the trip.

This small water town close to Shanghai is quiet and pretty. The boat ride gave you a good view of the water town. Our guide Jerry provided good details of the places we visited. Recommended for a half day getaway from Shanghai.

We booked this tour and Alana, the tour operator, contacted us immediately to advise about possible delays due to the heavy traffic as it was a public holiday in China. She was very helpful and accommodating and we modified the start time so we can leave earlier and skip the traffic. Alice, our tour guide, was lovely, and very knowledgeable. The water town was very picturesque with a lot of history. Overall a very good tour that it is highly recommended . Thank you Alice for taking such a great care of us.
