  • The Zhujiajiao Water Town Boating Tour with Fruit Picking was a beautiful tour to begin our trip to China. Alana was wonderful and made the whole tour a fabulous experience - despite it raining for much of the day. Alana's understanding and knowledge of the town made the tour informative and more importantly great fun. The tour began with a visit at a local farm where the kids enjoyed picking cucumbers (as the time we visited was out of season for grapes, strawberries or oranges). Alana also took time to introduce some basic Chinese phrases to the kids - which they enjoyed. We had lunch at a local restaurant overlooking the God City Temple Bridge. The food was incredibly fresh and the shrimp soup was a highlight of the meal. Alana was very diplomatic in encouraging my son to order something other than the chicken giblets! The boat trip through the water towns canals was perhaps the highlight of the tour and provided a fantastic way to gain a glimpse of ancient Yangtze Delta life. A walk through the KeZhi Garden was very peaceful and although busy had no large tour groups. Alana than walked us back through the town over the old stone bridges and picturesque narrow streets. This walk showed us many well preserved examples of Ming and Qing dynasty architecture. A five star experience with a special thank you to our guide Alana.
