A fabulous on a day trip to Suzhou and our tour guide Berlin is very detail and experience. She explains and describes all the historical places and all of us are so exciting. Very good trip, I will recommend this to my friends or will join again with my buddy if going to SuZhou.

I can hardly find the words to describe the wonderful day we (my husband) and I spent with Caroline in the wonderful city of Suzhou. Wonderful weather and a fabulous guide. Who brought enough historical knowledge to bring the beautiful gardens and city to life without boring us! Caroline was insightful and answered questions and was so very polite. We started the day by boarding the train top speed 280 - very cool. Picked up by a great driver who kept us entertained and safe with his driving skills - needed with the scooters coming at us from all directions. We entered the Humble administrators garden. It was enchanting. Like stepping into history. Help by the fact that so many ladies dressed up in the traditional dresses and makeup and hairstyles of different dynasties. Stunning. We then traveled to the Pan Men City Gete / less crowded and just as stunning. We enjoyed a lunch at a local restaurant and the food was excellent. We enjoyed a bit of shopping before heading back To Shanghai. Caroline, you really were amazing. Thank you!

No regrets going for this tour! Caroline was our guide and she was a really nice guide, very knowledgeable!! She took good care of my parents, it was raining heavily and she offered to exchange her umbrella that was bigger with my parents’ tiny one. Also, we chose to extend our trip at Suzhou, Caroline and Alana ensured that everything was planned nicely and where to wait for our driver before Caroline takes her leave. Caroline was also in contact with me via WeChat the entire time we are still at Suzhou while she is back in Shanghai to ensure that we are safe. Lunch was really good, we were allowed to choose what we want to eat. Alana was also in contact with me the whole time before our trip, prompt replies and giving us updates on our bullet train ticket. Would 10/10 recommend Caroline and this tour.
