We recently returned from a 3 week vacation in China, visited Beijing, Chengdu, Guilin, Yangshou, Hong Kong and Shanghai and Hangzhou. We planned most of the trip ourselves by utilizing a lot of the great resources on Trip Advisor. CuteMinMin’s along with many others’ postings on Shanghai was a tremendous help. For our last couple days in Shanghai, we wanted to do a day trip to Hangzhou on a last minute basis. Because of our concerns around transportation and time constraint, I emailed CuteMinMin for advise and asked for a guide recommendation. She promptly responded to my email and hooked me with David, who is an awesome tour guide. He spoke great English, arrived at our hotel on time to pick us up and accompanied us to the train station. He spent the whole day with us, taking us to the West Lake, temple and tea village. It was great having him around. I am not sure if we could have done without him (especially visiting all these places in 1 day); he definitely had made trip a heck of lot easier and memorable! There were times where it was very difficult to get a taxi in Hangzhou, David managed to help us get a ride from a local driver who was able to drop us off at a spot that was easier to get taxi. He is also very knowledgeable and great to talk to. It was very interesting to learn about the local culture and way of life. We truly enjoyed our time at Hangzhou with David and would highly recommend him! Thanks for such a great time in Hangzhou, David & CuteMinMin!
