Annie was a very pleasant guide that made our trip to HangZhou very memorable and we got to go every single place that we wanted as she accomodated to our needs and wants. You can place your trust in her and she will share with you China's history that made our trip very entertaining. Not only did we get to experience the local way, we got smarter with Annie sharing her knowledge with us. We felt very assured, safe, excited & glad to be on this trip with Annie and she is very heartwarming! Be sure to book your trip with Annie and be assured with the best trip experience with her :-)

Our tour guide, Annie, went above and beyond to accommodate us (one of us had been sick the day before). Everything about the day trip was fantastic. Transport, destinations, attractions, lunch at the local restaurant in the tea-growing village. The temple, statues and the lake itself were highlights of our trip. The bullet train from Shanghai was an added enjoyment through the megalopolis / country-side. And Annie was very knowledgable, generous and engaging. We loved the day.
