My tour guide Jane was very friendly and approachable. My driver was very considerate and careful driver. Whole trip was pleasant and relaxing.

I had an excellent experience. I was able to book the tour at the very last minute -- at 2 p.m. on a Saturday for the next day at 8 a.m. Alana immediately contacted me to coordinate the details. In addition to taking on my tour at the last minute, my guide, Alice, was knowledgeable and spoke English well even though she claimed that she did not! I recommend going early in the morning, particularly on a weekend, to beat the crowds.

Alana was very communicative in the lead up to the tour which was great. Judy and the driver got us out to the water town safely and in comfort. Judy was very knowledgeable about the area and commentates the river cruise and walking tour through the lanes. Dinner was delicious and she even helped us barter for a good deal or two!

Amazing tour with the professional tour operator. The tour was organised very well. We have met our Lady-Guide Snow very punctual in the hotel lobby and than we have gone together to the Watertown Zhujiajiao. The car was very comfortable and air conditioned. The drive was very safety. After reach the Water Town we have taken a walk with Snow along the streets of the village. Snow has explained us many interesting stories about the Water Town culture, about Shanghai and China. Her English is excellent. She has answered every our question and has given us tips for our later time in Shanghai. The bout ride in the Zhujiajiao was charming. We have visited the beautiful garden and temple complex too. After the visit of these two points we have taken the walk again along the streets and bridges of the village. There are many local shops, restaurants, tee houses and much more here. Every one has possibility here to find something delicious or to buy a gift. The tour was very professional with out time pleasure and in very friendly atmosphere. 100 % recommended.
