About
This is a full-day panoramic tour of China’s own Venice, the water towns of "Zhouzhuang" and "Jinxi". On this mini group tour, you will explore the ancient water town with your expert guide. You will visit Zhouzhuang, an ancient water town that comfortably makes CNN's list of the Top 10 most beautiful towns in the world. Board a gondola and see for yourself the hustle and bustle of life of the people living by the canals. Then, travel to the 2000 year old water town "Jinxi" which boasts 36 ancient bridges spanning the rivers. Jinxi Ancient Town is quieter, yet surprisingly more photogenic. The prime time to visit is in the afternoon, when the light is perfect for your photos and memories of the place.

So much amazing History
Nov 2019
My bf and I went on holiday to China and chose this tour based on reviews and I'm glad we went with this tour. It was slow season so it was just us two with tour guide Andy. he was very informative and answered all our history questions. The water towns were amazing to walk through and Andy helped out so much when we shopped with the local people. I would definitely recommend.

Water Towns Wonderland
May 2019 • Solo
Enjoyed a trip back in time to visit two different era fishing towns. Both beautiful and distinct. Candy, the guide, provided great information and picked a delightful canal-side local restaurant for a tasty relaxing lunch. Great way to take a break from the busy modern Shanghai and soak up a refreshing trip back in time.

History at its best
Apr 2018 • Couples
Our guide Sophie Lee led a small group tour to the two water towns; it was very exciting and knowledgeable and very enjoyable. The fishing village with the river boat tour was excellent and I'm sure I saw the same in an early James Bond movie. Lunch was very enjoyable; we would recommend this tour and Sophie Lee to future tourists; it was a very enjoyable day and tour; thankyou

A look into the past
Apr 2018
We had a great time with a leisurely walk through the streets of Zhouzhuang. It got a little crowded at times and I was more than once thankful I was in a small tour group of 6. I don't think I would have coped with a having to follow the large tour group leader with a flag and jostle to hear what they were saying. Jinxi did not have the history of Zhouzhuang but was quieter but you got a better insight into the life of the people who made their living off the lake. I enjoyed seeing the contrast and seeing both if I had to make a choice out of the two I would pick Zhouzhuang

Great Experience
Jan 2018
Meant be a group tour, but it turned out to be a private tour as there was no other participant - what a bonus!

It was snowing on the day of our tour, which is very rare in the Shanghai area. This made our tour little difficult, but the snow made everything look very pretty! It was freezing cold but the scenery made all the efforts worthwhile.

Our guide, Kris was very good, so was the driver. The vehicle was new and clean.

I highly recommend the tour to people who may not have much time in Shanghai, but want to see something totally different from the Big City metropolitan scenary.
