I am joining my husband on a business trip to Hangzhou from Shanghai. I am looking for a small tour group to join while he is visiting his business partners. I am looking for an itinerary like this: Pickup at your hotel lobby in Hangzhou downtown by 9:30am and start this amazing day tour in Hangzhou that starts with a boat ride on the famous West Lake, a symbol of Hangzhou. Move on to the China National Tea Museum, the only national museum dedicated to tea. The National Tea Museum is not only a exhibition center of Chinese tea culture but also a professional facility to collect tea cultural relics and materials. It is an important base for tea research and culture activities and, most importantly, a cradle to educate the world with Chinese tea art and culture. The area is serene and relaxing surrounded by groves of tea trees that are beautifully manicured. The exhibition is very comprehensive with descriptions in both English and Chinese. Continue to visit Eighteen Imperial Tea Bushes with famous Longjing tea. Longjing tea was granted the status of "Imperial Tea" in Qing Dynasty by Chinese Emperor Kangxi. Emperor Qianlong was also so impressed by the Longjing tea produced here that he conferred a special imperial status on those 18 tea bushes. The bushes continue producing premium Longjing tea and the tea they produce is auctioned annually for higher price per gram than gold. Lunch at the local tea farmer’s restaurant at your own expense with a beautiful view of the tea farm on the hills. Enjoy the local food cooked by the tea farmers. After lunch move to the Tea House at Meijiawu Tea Village located at the hinterland of West Lake Park which is considered one of the most important Longjing tea productions in China. Enjoy the natural environment and beautiful village scenery while learning more about their special tea culture and how to appreciate the sophisticated taste and aroma of Longjing tea. At the Tea House, learn how to make the Longjing Tea including tea leaves picking, frying and tasting. The final stop is Qinghefang Imperial Street, renamed Zhongshanlu Beiduan. Walk with your guide along this road that stretches 1,310 feet (400 meters) and leads to the imperial palace of the Northern Song Dynasty (AD 960–1127). If you wish, stop at any of the snack bars that offer local delicacies and shops that sell antiques, embroidered items and silk. It is a good place to experience the life of Old Hangzhou, you can see the well-preserved old buildings, explore the interesting boutique stores, and choose your favorite souvenirs. Drive you back to your hotel or train station and your tour ends. Do you have an option that might meet this request? Please advise.
