As with most travelers, one of the most frustrating things about visiting a foreign country can be deciding on which places to visit and cramming as much activities into the short amount of time one has. In addition the traveler also needs to consider where to eat, how to get around, and communicate in a foreign language. Based on reviews and recommendations, our group decided to forgo the above described headaches and booked a tour with David. Our trip was back in April of 2017 and we were in Hangzhou for about 5 days. Based on our communication of what we wanted to experience, David tailored a tour which included Hangzhou, Shanghai, Suzhou, and Wuzhen. One of our primary request to David was to experience local delicacies and dine in local establishments, as we did not travel thousands of miles to eat tourist food. On the day of our arrival, David picked us up at HGH and took us to dinner at a local restaurant located within a botanical garden. This was the beginning of the most memorable trip ever. What made this experience great was David tailored the tour based on traffic conditions and peak hours. By doing so we were not sitting in traffic or waiting in long lines to get into certain sites thus allowing us to enjoy the attractions at a comfortable pace. During the whole trip our group did not have to worry about what to do, how to get around, where to eat, and the most frustrating, having to communicate in a language that one does not speak. David had planned everything for us including the best places to eat. Keep in mind the best places to eat does not necessarily mean having to pay a fortune. In my opinion we ate some of the best foods at dirt cheap prices. As a courtesy we insisted David dine with us and he would always do the ordering ensuring we always had the local delicacies. The best way to describe the incredible services offered by David is to imagine having a friend with extensive knowledge of the Hangzhou area and is willing to show you the area. All you have to do is relax and enjoy the ride. Our group will be returning this April and have already reserved our dates with David.

My group of 6 adults booked a private tour with David Wei. He met us at the airport and arranged for a full 5-day tour to include Hangzhou, Shanghai, Suzhou, and Wuzhen. His English was very good so we did not have any language barriers. We enjoyed 2 full days in Hangzhou including touring West Lake and surrounding regions. He even helped us buy the famous Longjing (Dragonwell tea) at an exceptionally good price. Our itinerary also included full day tours in Shanghai ( plus night tour in Shanghai), Suzhou, and Wuzhen. I was very amazed at David's knowledge of the local history and good eats. Each meal was a traditional Chinese family style with soup, veggies, fish, meats, and lots of local delicacies at very reasonable prices. David treated us like family and we will definitely look for him again on our next trip to China. The only down side is that you need to search for your own hotels. Most 4 - 5 star hotels include both Western and Chinese style breakfasts. Make sure to ask for non-smoking rooms if that's your preference.

A very good trip despite the cold wet weather. The guide, David, was waiting for us as agreed and managed the tour very well. Particularly good was the trip to the West Lake, which was still spectacular despite the weather and its significance became very clear when we saw its replica a few days later in the Temple of Heaven in Beijing. The guide's command of English was very good, he was very knowledgeable, and tried hard to make the trip enjoyable.

This is our second meeting with Hangzhou East China Private Tours, David as our tour guide to West Lake,Mt Putuo & Suzhou.For itinerary we contacted thru WeChat.He spoke good english,experienced & knowledgeable.For the whole duration he fully escorted us. I was planning to buy a screen partition but did not ask David to check but he did me a favour by going on line accompanied me to the shop to assist {no commission involved} We like trying local food he recommended affordable and tasty restaurants. Before arrival informed him of our big luggages he replied that the Toyota Prius will fit but upon arrival the bags were too big he changed to MB Viano 7 seater at no extra charge! David is dependable,honest & sincere guy...He will deliver. Our next visit will definitely request him to accompany visit to Huangshan,Nanjing & Shanghai.

David has been an excellent and knowledgeable guide from the planning stage to the very end of the trip. Initial planning via emails have been seamless. David was really helpful in guiding us how we could maximize our time and planning our itinerary to cover the major sights in Hangzhou, Wuzhen and Suzhou. Upon arrival at the train station, David was already there waiting for us with a very comfortable 7-seater MB van. He knows the city very well and planned the itinerary in the best way possible to avoid peak traffic and crowded meal times. He is very knowledgeable about the history/stories for each sights we went to and this has made our trip so much more informative and memorable. Highly recommended tour for anyone looking for a guide in Hangzhou and the nearby cities!
