Beautiful cultural place! The people is friendly, typical and delicious food, well-preserved ancient site! We took a tour and Snow made us enjoy the day and selected very tasty dishes.

We had an absolutely wonderful day on this tour. Snow was a phenomenal guide with brilliant knowledge of Zhujiajiao Water town. We loved the boat ride and enjoyed exploring the garden and temple in the town. Snow was very helpful in helping us order our dinner by the waters edge- delicious local Shanghai cuisine! We highly recommend Snow and this tour and the unique surroundings of China's Venice.

The tour was excellent and beyond our expectations! Snow, our tour guide, was fabulous! She was friendly, personable and full of interesting information! She made our trip very memorable and customized the tour to our liking 😍 She deserves much more than five stars!! 💖 💖 💖 ✨ ✨ ✨ The driver was professional and the vehicle very comfortable! She even had treats and gifts for my husband's bday! Thanks to the La Vacanza Travel team Alana and Snow for arranging everything! We highly recommend their services!

It was really interesting. The tour guide gave us very useful presentes (fans) because it is too hot and humid during July. Snow was really kind and knowledgeable, her car was nice and she even gave us some home made candy. Our favorite part was definitely the boat ride at the River, it was really nice! The shops around the River has a lot of local food, and we have a meal in one of the local restaurants. Punctual, trustfull and kind guide.

I booked two tours with Amazing Shanghai Trips, and both tours were flawless. Berlin was my guide for both, and she is sweet, smart, and a great conversationalist. This tour met all my expectations. It is called the Venice of China, and for good reason. This tour is very culturally enriching, and off the beaten path. Zhujiajiao is not very crowed, and is for people who enjoy learning about the history of old China.
