We enjoyed very much. Well organised and planned. The tour leader was great. The food was so local and tasty. Good value for money and I suggest it especially to foreign visitors

Three of us booked this day trip to learn more about Chinese tea and culture. David was terrific! He met us at the train station in Hangzhou after we took the bullet train from Shanghai (a fun must!). We avoided any lines at West Lake for a boat tour, he showed us key highlights in the area, then took us for a tea farmer lunch which was fresh and delicious. Despite some rain, we saw the tea museum, met with tea farmers, saw tea plantations and had a great,full but relaxing day. We highly recommend it!

My tour guide, Bonnie, was very knowledgeable regarding all of the sites in Hangzhou. She did a great job of showing me around and filling me in on the history and culture. The boat trip on Westlake was enjoyable, gave a lay of the land, and the temple tour was a very interesting site. the lunch at the farmer restaurant was really tasty, and I thought the tea plantation information informative and interesting as well. I could have done without the tour of the shopping plaza, very touristy, but it did have some interesting foods and goods. Driver did a nice job dropping us off at convenient spots and picking us up also.

I strongly recommend anyone who is visiting Hangzhou to sign up for this private tour. I had the pleasure of spending 2 days in Hangzhou with my tour guide (Bo-bo) and my driver (Ye Shifu). They helped me gain a deep understanding of the importance of Hangzhou in the context of the long history and fascinating culture of China.

Bobo and Ye Shifu were very professional and went to great lengths to ensure that I had a comfortable and enjoyable trip. I will definitely sign up for this private tour again when I next visit Hangzhou with my family.

My husband and I along with another couple booked the private 2-day tour in Hangzhou with China Private Tours and was so pleased with the entire service. Sam (Tourism Manager) was extremely efficient and prompt in his email replies and helped us plan our entire trip via email. When we arrived in Hangzhou, the cab driver got lost taking us from the train station to our hotel. Even though our tour only began the next day we called Sam for help who helped direct the driver to the hotel over telephone. Our tour guide Simon was very friendly and helpful, he told us such interesting stories about each attraction and we really fell in love with the city and its beauty and culture. When we visited the Westlake, Simon recommended us to try the private boat so that we could visit the isolated places of the lake that weren't crowded with tourists and that helped us to see the Westlake for its true beauty. For lunch, he took us to the tea plantation's farmer's house for meals and helped us to order the food so that we could enjoy the wonderful local food at local price. He also helped communicate with our hotel staff when we needed some help for calling a taxi to the airport the next day. In addition to that, he recommended which things would be worth buying and the importance of bargaining for a good price. They accept payment via Paypal so if you don't have an account, it would be good either to set up one or prepare enough cash in advance for payment. I would highly recommend this tour company for those interested in exploring Hangzhou like a local. It is clear that Sam is truly interested in helping tourists discover the beauty of the city and we had a wonderful experience because of it. 10/10 !

A three day Hangzhou/Wuzhen tour organized in an excellent way by Sam. He not only arranged a great sightseeing itinerary but also arranged for us transport to/from the train station on the days when we arrived and departed from Hangzhou. He also booked tickets for us for the West Lake Impressions show which we also fully recommend.

We had our guide Lulu for all the three days and she was excellent. She speaks perfect English and explained historical details of the sights we visited in a very interesting way. During the whole time we had very nice, clean and comfortable vans and the different drivers were very courteous.

There was a storm in Hangzhou in the three days we were there, but Sam and Lulu were very flexible and continuously amended the itinerary depending on the weather so that we could see everything that was planned.

We fully recommend this agency for any such private tours in Hangzhou and around.

We booked this day tour of Hangzhou the day before, so had to book the bullet train from Shanghai ourselves (actually the concierge at our hotel did it for us!). Needless to say we were a bit anxious about finding our guide at Hangzhou station (the train stations in China are the same size as Australia’s airports!!). However Nancy was standing right there with a China Private Tours sign & a big smile on our arrival. Easy. Nancy’s English was fantastic & we were driven around all day in a brand new vehicle with a pleasantly informative commentary from Nancy. Went on a walk and a boat ride around West Lake, had a delicious authentic lunch overlooking tea plantations and visited various historical sites around Hangzhou. One great thing about having a private tour is that it could be adjusted to suit us - we weren’t overly interested in the temple area & had done tea tasting in Shanghai already so Nancy shortened those parts so we could include the silk museum instead. It was very refreshing to spend the day with a local Hangzhou girl who spoke our language! As we chatted all day it gave me great insight into the culture, everyday life and growing up in China. To me this was invaluable! At the end of the day we were taken back to train station & shown exactly where to go. Nancy was professional but a lot of fun! I definitely recommend using China Private Tours, go with these guys!! We tried arranging the same tour with another company and it was a nightmare (overpriced with terrible communication) but China Private Tours responded promptly, courteously and got the job done!

We went on this Private tour with China Private Tours and our guide was May. I booked 3 tours with this company and was very happy with the service they provided. They are on time, with very comfortable cars and very good guides. Our guide for the day was May and she was a delight. Knowledgable and great company. At the end of our trip she even helped us change our train tickets for an earlier train. Thanks May!
The reason I've given 3 stars is because I was a little disappointed with the city itself. The highlight was the Lingering Garden, which was absolutely a delight! The silk factory was interesting but since we had already been to one in Beijing, it wasn't that exciting. But it is a must visit if you are interested in buying some silk products. The image of Suzhou as a city of many canals and old style homes along them is a thing of the past. You will find that in Tongli. We took a Rickshaw ride which really was a waste of time. Takes you through some main streets and a sleepy fruit market. The flower market was a bit more alive. I then realized why most tours combined Suzhou with a water town. That's the best combination that i will advise for my family and friends. You do not need a full day in Suzhou unless you want to see more then one garden.

Just came back from an unforgettable trip in Hangzhou arranged by Simon. Within a day, he managed to arrange for us a private day tour led by Sharon.

I must confess, me and my wife under-estimated Sharon’s ability to cover the full day tour. As the day past by, she was able to cover the itinerary “twice” - with my wife first and with me when my wife needs a breather. At a glance, we saw her face, wet with perspiration but still smiling, now, what a trooper.

My wife even learned the way the locals prepared our lunch - braised fish, stir fried green beans and sautéed eggplant.

Our last stop was in Hefang Street and while strolling, we tried some of their snacks. That is when we discovered Sharon’s secret of her energy – The King of the Fruit.

We came up with the following personalities that describes her and much much more. We know we will see her whenever we join another private tour in our next unforgettable trip.

• Self-Confident, Sociable and Sense of Humor
• Hands-on, Honest and Honorable
• Amicable, Amenable and Authentic
• Reliable, Resolute and Responsive
• Outgoing, Observant and Organized
• Nice, Natural and Never Quit Attitude

The one day private tour was very enjoyable and relaxing. What we liked about it was that we were able to choose what we wanted to do in the itinerary and doing it in our own pace. Our guide had a good knowledge of the history of Hangzhou as well as being flexible in catering to what we were interested in.
