  • Vicky was excellent. Driver performed safe handling of vehicle with care. Went with 2 kids 5yrs and 9yrs that enjoyed it much treating through the village. I do however recommend upgrading the boat ride to a longer one.

  • Super nice experience with Tom. He is a frendly, well-educated and knowledgeable man, who kindly answered all of our questions. The tour gave us another perspective of Chinese culture and it was really rewarding. 100 recommendable

  • Bit of a drive but good thing to do and see something than just Shanghai proper

  • We were picked up by the Tour Guide from our Hotel with his own car. After driving for around 1h, we arrived the Water Town. The Guide organized the trip through the Town and explained several things. In between, we joined a small boat tour for around 15 min.
    The tour itself was quite nice especially since the Guide explained a lot of things from old China and the current situation in China.
    But unforunately, the whole tour in the Water Town was finished within less than 2 h. Attempts to visit a temple in Zhujiajiao that was not on the original tour plan, were hardly discussed and blocked. Lunch was not suggested due to hygene reasons, but I think it was only to save time. In total, we spent around 4 h for this trip incl. 2 h of driving, arriving at our hotel in early afternoon 1 pm. For this price, I expected a little longer trip,

  • This is well worth doing and a nice chance to have alook outside of Shanghi. Our guide was excellent and quite informative. I can highly recommend this tour.

  • This was a great 1/2 day trip. David was AWESOME!!!!! He was very knowledgeable and took some great photos of my husband and I. I would recommend this trip for anyone looking for something a little different to do in Shanghai.

  • We took this tour on a rainy Monday October 16. The tour guide David Wang who was wonderful, was right on timewe arranged to do the tour at 9am even though it says 10am when you go to book it and he was extremely informative. Even though it was raining hard we still got to take the boat ride before they shut it down. It takes an hour approximately from Shanghai on the bund area to Zhujiajiao. The most interesting part of the village was the gardens. On the way back he dropped each one of in our party where they wanted to go as we still had time to take in another interesting historic sight.

  • Tom was absolutely delightful. From the moment we left our hotel, the flow of information, history and experience began - we all appreciated Tom's insight and easy going manner as we took in the drive to Zhujiajiao and experienced the ancient town. Each new experience brings with it a new challenge when traveling in a new place, so having Tom in charge and leading the way was so refreshing. I highly recommend it!

  • Vicki was an excellent and informative tour guide. We really enjoyed seeing another side of Shanghai. There was a variety of things to do on the tour and it was individually catered to our needs and interests. Thoroughly recommend.

  • This experience was exactly what we were hoping for! Our guide Tom was great! He was on-time, spoke very good English, very knowledgable as a tour guide and my family and I had a very fun trip! I would request him again if we are ever back in Shanghai and I would also highly recommend this trip!
