I had an awesome time on my visit to the water village and gardens in Shanghai with my wonderful host, Snow. The beauty of the garden is magnificent and the laid back atmosphere of the water village was inviting. Snow was great at pointing out both cultural and historical aspects of all the sites on the tour. She made everything so comfortable with her great sense of humor and hospitality. The food on this tour was incredible! So many things to try and enjoy. I would definitely recommend this tour for anyone looking for a relaxing day outside of the city.

Seeing traditional side of Shanghai and learning history behind it. My tour guide was very knowledgeable and provided good insight into the gardens and historical significance of the area as a trading spot.

The tour was perfect. The village is very nice and you feel that you are in a more traditional China than NEW Shanghai. It is indeed touristic with lots of shops and restaurants but it is very nice to spend half day or even the whole day. We were pickup at our hotel on time with welcome gift and water. Car was really nice and the driver very careful Our guide QUEENA was the best. English is absolutely perfect ! As we are traveling with an 8 years old girl, Queena also made the tour fun for her too. She really took care of everything. Queena gave us all the information needed. Queena also helped us with our WeChat setup which is essential while in China. Tour is recommended.
