We had such a fantastic day with Jerry in the two water towns! The views were absolutely amazing - as was the boat ride in both locations - one by day under the beautiful willow trees and the other by night with views of the lit water and red lanterns - what an experience! Jerry took us to all the best spots, including a wonderful local restaurant for lunch and a great lit waterside restaurant at night. We sampled local culinary treats along the way - also some rice wine (very strong! Haha) - and of course shopping! Jerry even carried my shopping bags so I could be free to go in and out of the shops. He was so knowledgeable about the area and the history - wonderful guide! When we first booked the trip we were worried it was going to be too long of a day, but it wasn’t - it was absolutely perfect! Jerry also let us go at our own pace, which was great! Thank you Jerry and thank you Amazing City Tours for making our day trip out of Shanghai the BEST!!!

We had a superb time and experience, our favorite was Xitang, which is newer and there was more to see, shop and restaurants were aplenty. The boat ride during sunset was really nice, we took some nice pictures and saw the sky change its cookie while the red lanterns lit up. Our guide Jerry was perfect. He is a 10 STAR! He made sure we had a good time and took care of us well. He was observant with our interests such as food preference. We had fun together, and it was like making a new friend. He paced our tour to suit us to make sure we had the best experience, and we did. Thank you Jerry!

Jerry is an excellent tour guide with extensive knowledge. Our group had a great time at Wuzhou and Xitang water town. The lunch and dinner included was nice. Will come back next time with my family.

Perfect! It could have been a terrible day due to constant rain, threat of rain, and cool temperatures. BUT our guide, Berlin simply refused to allow any of the three of us to have a less than fun and informative day. One day prior to the tour we were contacted by La Vacanza Travel’s supervisor, Alana to confirm our pickup, told about our guide, given the weather forecast, and asked for any special needs, etc. Also one day before the tour our guide, Berlin also checked in with us. On the morning of the tour, Berlin checked in again to make everything was set correctly. We started out promptly on time at 8:30 am in a spotlessly clean Mercedes van with comfortable, roomy, individual leather seats. We ended promptly at 7:30 pm despite some of the worst traffic I have ever seen. On time performance seems to be a La Vacanza Travel characteristic. Berlin accurately helped connect 6,000 years of Chinese history to the complicated contemporary China of today. She was bright, articulate, thoughtful, positive, and willing to share her own point of view when asked. We learned a lot, had a great local lunch and dinner, and a nice coffee break in between meals for more relaxed conversation. Nothing was rushed and the whole day was set at our pace and not a pre-determined timetable. There was no “canned” scripts but rather open, two-way conversations. Wuzhen was slightly less “touristy” than Xitang, but both water towns were charming in their own way. I cannot recommenced Berlin and La Vacanza Travel highly enough. We felt we received far more than we paid for. This was our third La Vacanza Travel and we plan on using them again.
