Pick up in time at our hotel, then a pleasant and informative trip to Tongli in a really clean and comfortable van. The walking and visit to the places like water canals, small streets, the quiet and nice house and garden followed by a really good authentic lunch。 We had then a nice canoe tour on the canals。 We were more than happy to choose to visit with a guide. With Annie - excellent and lovely guide - we learned things about the habits and customs that we would never have discovered by ourselves without her informatives explanations。 Annie with her energy was a real bonus to this tour. We were able to get some chinese pieces of way of life, thinking and cultural daily life approach, quite amazing and entlightning for us. So in this restarting period for travels we will keep an excellent memory of our first tour in 2023 !!
