    Zhujiajiao Ancient Town
    Stop: 2 hours - Admission included
    After meeting your guide in your hotel lobby, you will start your exciting full-day tour. We will bring you to Zhujiajiao, an ancient water village in Qingpu District of Shanghai. It is an ancient town that was built on the bank of Dianshan Lake and at the foot of Dianshan Hill within a beautiful scenic area. The village boasts 36 stone bridges and numerous rivers, with many ancient buildings lining the riverbanks. There is also a cute little temple called Yuanjin Buddhist Temple that with the Kezhi Garden worth a visit. Following your visit to the water village, you will have time to wander along the market street past the shops back to the village entrance. With hundreds of small shop fronts selling local foods, arts and crafts, silk products and pearls, this makes for a complete experience, in all senses of the word. It is also the perfect time to get some souvenirs for friends and family back home.

Everything you could want in a day in Shanghai!
Oct 2019 • Couples
We booked online through Trip Advisor for the following day while boarding the plane and by the time we landed we had an email confirmation and a further written confirmation with local contact details waiting for us at our hotel - so booking was extremely efficient. Vivian is a brilliant guide - funny, warm, articulate, knowledgeable, practical and flexible! She designed our day around our preferences which included a water town and she made sure we got the most out of logistics taking into account traffic, location, etc. We had been around ourselves and were confident making our way so we were only going to book the water town but then decided to see a few more sites as our flight was late that night. One couple had done a tea ceremony years earlier and the other had not and yet we all 4 enjoyed it - you always learn something new and there was no pressure to buy. We thoroughly enjoyed it. By having a guide we got to see an awful lot more in Shanghai than we could on our own and we learned a lot too - effortlessly. This was especially true with the trip to Zhujiajiao which we loved! Everything Vivian showed us was different, had a story and was very worthwhile seeing. The lunch was made freshly for us and was delicious - again around our food preferences (lots of farm fresh vegetables!). The driver made us feel like royalty and Vivian always had him close by and easily accessible for when we were ready. We want to come back as Shanghai is an incredibly fascinating city and exploring it with Vivian is an extremely enjoyable, efficient and valuable way to go! Our only regret was that we didn’t have more time in Shanghai!

Great Day Out - Hannah is a fantastic guide
May 2019 • Family
We did this trip in May with my Aunt and Uncle (both 70+) and our daughter aged 13. Hannah was an excellent guide (ask for her if you book this trip). She was very patient with us and very knowledgeable about Shanghai and the areas we went. The watertown was very crowded (we went on a Sunday) so it felt a bit touristy but we still enjoyed it. Boat trip not worth the money unless you really don't want to walk. Tianzifang was a lovely area and I would go back there to spend more time. The tea ceremony turned out to be a highlight - very interesting and enjoyable.
