Frank picked us up with his driver and we were instantly impressed with his good command of English. Born in Shanghai, he gave us a very interesting talk on the way to th Water Village about the city and China in general. We first went through the beautiful Chinese gardens, then hopped on a boat ride through the Water Village which was very pretty and relaxing. Frank took us through the tiny streets of Zhujiajiao and we got to sample many of the tasty snacks, including stinky tofu, which really was quite nice. Would recommend Frank as a guide, if you're heading to Shanghai for the day.🙂…

We were really lucky because we had a private tour with our amazing guide Grace to Hangzhou. Although the weather wasn't that good Grace made our tour a great experience for us. The West Lake where we had a 45 minute boat ride was beautiful. The lunch at a local restaurant was the best we had in and around Shanghai. It is a long drive to Hangzhou but totally worth it!…

Highly recommend this tour. Frank is an excellent tour guide with a strong command of English. He has great knowledge of Chinese culture and history and will share interesting facts during the tour. Both destinations were beautiful and certainly worth visiting during your stay in Shanghai. Lunch was excellent with traditional Shanghainese food. Yes, it does take all day (get back around 1700-17:30 depending on traffic but worth the convenience instead of taking public transport and could also squeeze in a cheeky nap!) All in all a great experience for off peak season. There were four of us in total, bus was not crowded and nor were the destinations. …
