I went to Hangzhou, Huangshan, and Hongcun total of 5 days. I just went with my 4 year old daughter and we don't speak Chinese. We got a clean and new van picking us up at train station then met another guide, William, who took us up Huanghsan mountain for 2 days and 1 night then sent us to train station. At Hangzhou, Jason took care of us touring Westlake, tea plantation, and Lingyin Temple. Both Jason and William are very attentive, friendly, courteous, and so knowledgable. My daughter and I feel like we got a friend, brother, uncle, photographer, guide, and driver all in one. John himself was very helpful right from helping me planning out the whole trip and giving me awesome tips along the way. They always check on us and go extra miles to make us feel comfortable. They raise a bar for private tour guide so high that I don't think I'll find any other guide this excellent. Book with John Wu! You will be so happy you want them to take you everywhere in China!!!

As we were travelling with children, we needed to ensure that certain parts of our journey proceeded smoothly. We wanted a driver to take us from Hangzhou to Wuzhen and from Wuzhen to Suzhou. After much research and back and forth emailing with various tour operators, we settled for John Wu's Hangzhou Private Tours. John's prices were by far the most reasonable. John was very prompt in replying our queries through WhatsApp and he also gave us helpful tips such as train times and suggestions of hotels to book. Although initially, we wanted to hire a driver from Shanghai to Hangzhou, he told us that it would be quicker and easier to take the bullet train (takes about only 45 minutes). And so we did. Our driver Jacky (Hangzhou to Wuzhen) is a jovial person. He entertained us with facts about Hangzhou and gave us certain tips about Wuzhen. For our Wuzhen to Suzhou trip, we were picked up by Mr. Lee from our Wuzhen hotel. As our trip included Suzhou sightseeing, he took us to the popular Suzhou attractions and helped us purchase tickets and answer queries. The drivers were very prompt and were careful when driving. Highly recommended if you need to book a ride or a tour (with or without a guide) around Shanghai - Hangzhou - Suzhou areas.

My family and I travelled in a group of 8 and engaging Johnwu Hangzhou Private Tours made the entire journey a lot more enjoyable. John was very very responsive over Whatsapp when I had enquiries about the place. John also provided suggestions for accommodations and places to visit- this was very helpful for someone like who has never been to Hangzhou previously. My family and I spent our first 2 days in Huangshan and our assigned tour guide was Ah Qing. He was extremely hospitable and knowledgeable about almost everything. Strongly recommend him if you are heading up to Huangshan on your trip there. In Hangzhou, we had Cathy as our tour guide. She was extremely polite, punctual and also knows her history extremely well. One of us in the group was non Chinese speaking and she took the effort to specially explain things to her in English whenever possible. Cathy also took extremely good care of my grandmother, providing a helping hand whenever she could. Our drivers on the trip were also very punctual. Strongly recommend.

John was prompt in replying all my queries when I contacted him to plan for my family trip in Dec 2019. John was able to give us practical advice to make our trip hassle free without overspending. Our family of 13 took the high-speed rail to Shanghai after spending 6 days in Beijing and John was able to arrange pick-up from the train station as well as airport transfer on our departure day to Pudong airport. Our private started the next day when the driver picked us from our Shanghai hotel and we met up with our guide at Wuzhen Watertown on our way to Hangzhou. Our guide Rebecca is a true Hangzhou local and a total gem as our guide. Apart from being extremely knowledgeable in all the attractions, she was extremely attentive to our needs as we had elderly travelling in my group who have trouble walking. To that end, she really plan through our itinerary and sequence of travel so that the pace is comfortable. Her recommendations for food and places of interest really enabled us to have a comprehensive taste of Hangzhou despite spending merely 3 days there. It was raining for most parts of our visit to Hangzhou and Rebecca saw that we will not have enough rain gear after we check out on our last day. She brought us extra umbrellas from her home which was really kind considering she had to lugged it on public transport to meet us. Great work by John and Rebecca for making us truly enjoy our Hangzhou visit. Thank you and we look forward to visit Hangzhou with your team again!

I engaged JohnWu Private Tours for Wuzhen to Hangzhou and day trip at Hanzhou. I was assigned with Mr. Bai. The driver is extremely friendly, helpful, caring, passionate with his work as though he is ferrying his own family member! The driver has a very good knowledge of Hangzhou, bring us to good and affordable restaurant and even walk to the restaurant to help us order local food after parking his car, his car has a lot of candy for the kids. When the day is dark and drizzing at Lingyin temple, he called and concerned if we are lost after we didn't show up after estimated time. Later, though it's dark, he brought us to see Light display show which is not in our itenary as he saw we have kids and the kids would like it. The driver is so caring that he offered warming pad for customer to keep warm in cold winter as he anticapated client from tropical country need this. Come to think of it, although I find the company's price is a bit higher than other tour company at other city (but still reasonable), but after experiencing the tour with this company in Hangzhou, I would say that it worth the small price difference, very high quality/knowledge of driver (not just driver but with good local knowledge), flexible itenary. Would strongly recommend this company to friends and would engage Johnwu if I do come touring again to Shanghai/Suzhou/Hangzhou in future.
