Definitely one of the most memorable experience in my years of travel!
Sep 2019
Miki has a personal touch and speaks excellent English. She is emphatic, caring and a very dynamic person with lots of experience in her work.

She has this incredible talent of being able to anticipate your needs even before you thought of it.

Bubbly and cheerful, Miki is one in a million!

Thanks Miki for making my trip to Shanghai so memorable.

We will always remember this tour
My group is here for business so we were thrilled to find an evening tour that we can take from Shanghai after the business day. Miki is the easiest guide, flexible, full of great information and created many experiences in one evening. My colleagues are STILL talking about how this was one of the top tours and best sites they have ever experienced. There is a 1+ hour ride out of the city in a comfortable AC vehicle - it is worth it to see rural China. We took over 100 pictures, had fun failing at creating the perfect dumpling, heard a sitar played with a local meal, tea tasting with Miki who is a tea expert and a wine tasting. There is a boat ride in the water town which is a similar experience to the gondolas in Venice. This was so beautiful and fun, everyone raved about Miki and we laughed many times. What a fantastic evening. Highest regards for this tour and Miki. Definitely book it.

Highlight of our trip
Jun 2019 • Couples
Cannot recommend this tour highly enough. Communication was quick and easy. Miki is friendly, funny and full of information - it felt like having a good friend show us around. Perfectly paced tour, with time for strolling. Most incredibly, Miki managed to make the entire tour gluten free - snacks, dumplings, and dinner out. We were delighted with how this tour went, and cannot thank Miki enough. A truly wonderful day.

Miki Tours Xitang Experience
Apr 2019 • Friends
Fantastic tour by Miki, owner and our tour guide. I liken Xitang as a Chinese Venice. Miki treated us like royalty. She will cater the tour to your desire. We enjoyed a canal boat ride, walking tour, mini tea ceremony, exquisite cuisine, Chinese wine, shopping, Karaoke and surprise gifts. Miki tours does not disappoint.

Culturally rich and exceeded my expectations!
Oct 2018 • Friends
I was in Shanghai for only a short period of time and wanted to see as much as I can in two nights. I signed up for a city/food tour which was enough for one night and Miki, tour guide/owner, also suggested a modified short version of the Xitang Water Village Tour. It was by far one of the best tours! It was culturally rich and it was nice to experience a town outside of central Shanghai. Miki and her other accompanied tour guides went out of their way to make sure we (group of 6) were comfortable and satisfied. The views of Xitang at night was absolutely stunning. The water town was thriving at night - filled with families and people of all ages. We had Chinese wine tasting, home made cooking, short boat ride with beer, stroll through alleys, and shopping. It was an unforgettable experience. I will definitely be back with my spouse and experience the entire tour (7hrs) since my version was shorten due to my schedule.

Jul 2018
We booked this trip as 2 families (3 adults and 4 teenagers). So glad we did. It was a private tour with just our group in a large air conditioned mini bus that held 14 people.

We were collected fro our hotel and dropped of at 2 different hotels as requested . Nothing was too much and the guide “ Mary” was kind, considerate, helpful and fun. We stopped at a shopping mail at our request to get an item. No problem at all.

Mary gave us an education about Shanghai and the Chinese way of life. We discussed food and diet and fruit cake up in the chat. This led to the tour stopping at a Dragon Fruit farm and picking our own with the locals . This was not in the schedule and was a great experience.

As we our friends showed interest in Dim Sum, at the Water Village we were taken to a small hotel and had a lesson how to make Dim Sum and all had a try. Again not on the schedule and of the cuff. Great fun again.

We had a ride in a Chinese Wooden Boat (Chinese Gondola).

We were collected at 2pm and did not get back to our hotel in Shanghai until around 11pm

The Water town is an interesting place with an insight in to poorer China. Lovely photos and great fun. When it is dark there is a bar street that is something like you would get in Ibiza .

The dinner is Mediocre at best but this does not distract from such an awesome experience

At the end of the tour, when we arrived back at our hotel Mary gave us some
personalised gifts . I will not spoil your experience and tell you. You will be amazed.

Would definitely suggest the evening tour and highly recommend Miki Tours and would suggest requesting Mary.

Xitang water village with dinner
Our lovely English speaking tour guide Mary arrived promptly to meet us at our hotel. We hopped into an air conditioned mini van and made our 2hr drive to Xitang. Mary was super organized, there was plenty of bottled water in the van, she offered my teenage children WiFi as well as a portable mobile phone charger. She was great! As we made our way out of Shanghai city, Mary spoke about the history of Shanghai. Places to see and eat during our stay in Shanghai city. We made a stop at a dragon fruit farm and there my children did dragon fruit picking. That was interesting. We took enough for us to eat later on the trip. Mary was very knowledgeable and informative about Xitang. Xitang was absolutely gorgeous, a small charming town which reminded us of Venice. Our boat ride along the canal was fantastic. We walked through the cobble stone town and then stopped at a bar. There we had Chinese beer (I’m not a beer drinker but I really enjoyed it - it was light and refreshing!) We snacked on the dragon fruit with some chips and even got on the karaoke machine. But before that, the manager of the bar serenaded us with a couple of Chinese classics. Mary also sang a song for us. They were both fantastic! From there we had a short walk to our restaurant and ate some local cuisine. We left Mary in charge of ordering and nothing was left behind. My teenage children ate everything. We left Xitang around 9pm and got back to our hotel just after 10.30pm. It was a very memorable evening thanks to our very knowledgeable, helpful and fun tour guide Mary.

Old China Hands got to experience something new!
Jul 2018 • Family
We lived for 6 years in Shanghai. Back visiting we decided to have one day where someone else did all the organizing and we just followed along. We had seen all the usual water towns but had not heard of Xitang so we booked the evening tour (also a good idea in summer because it's so hot!).

Miki tours were great. They were quick to respond, payment was easy (Paypal), and just a few days before our tour, they let me change from Saturday to Sunday which was awesome. Zoe, our guide, showed up at our hard to find apartment on time with a huge brand new luxury Mercedes bus to take our family of five to Xitang. Xitang is the nicest water town I've visited - it's not as crowded as the others as it's a bit further out. Especially after dark, it's really nice to wander around and take a boat trip. It's really nicely lit up. Zoe bought us some nice gifts and we had lots of food and beer at dinner. We never felt rushed, we could go at our own pace. Zoe was knowledgeable on the history of Xitang and the Pearl River Delta in general.

Overall a fantastic trip. We'll be planning another trip next time we are back in china.

Brilliant, Brilliant, Brilliant Water Village Tour with Miki - She is an Awesome host!
May 2018 • Friends
The Sunset Tour was an experience I will always remember thanks to the passion and personal touch Miki puts in to making her guests have a great time. I totally recommend Miki Tours. We were lucky enough to have Miki the owner of her tour company. Starting with a huge and luxurious bus for the 6 of us arriving early. On the drive out from Shanghai city, Miki was so informative about the history of Shanghai and other parts of China. I want to write all the things we did throughout the day but that would spoil it, as there was one enjoyable moment after another. You are well fed, well watered and well looked after all day & night. Xitang Village is unique and loved walking through the alleys of shops, bars and other businesses but also enjoying an amazing meal at a personally selected restaurant by Miki. Food was delicious. We continued to walk thru the village, getting lessons about the area before ending up at Miki's Bar and she surprised us once more!! It was a fantastic day, so organised, so passionate and Miki is such an impressive woman. Could not rate her and the tour more highly.

Excellent tour with Mary!--- Miki tours
Apr 2018 • Friends
I booked only an afternoon trip to Xitang so i didn't expect too much because i have been to Zhujiajiao few years ago. I just wanted to see different kind of water village.

But beyond my expectatiion, Mary, our guide, organized the trip perfectly.

Our trip started at 2:30 pm in the middle of the city. She was kind enough to come up to 5th floor of the Corso como to pick us up! On the way to Xitang, she gave us compact explanation of Shanghai.

At Miki's sister's beautiful tea house, we had the delicious chicken soup and home
made dumplings. We all loved to be there!!!

Xitang was quite different from Zhujiajiao. The atomosphere was lively. We looked around the town and took hundreds of pictures. Mary was also a great photographer. Then She took us to a bar where she sang a song playing guitar. She was multi-talented!
It was beautiful to see the Xitang in red lights . We had dinner afterwards and headedback to our Hotel.

Miki tour is so well organized and Mary's enthusiasm was contagious. It was a impressive tour.
We all cherished the time there!
