Traveler Reviews

    This tour was fantastic and more then anticipated. The car was comfortable, air conditioned, water provided. Lunch at a local farmers home was delicious and really good value. Having the tea picking / drying processes described to us in English made the process very interesting. We booked the tour as per the web site description however David our English speaking guide allowed us to mix things up a little. David's knowledge of the area and also the history of Hangzhou added to the overall experience of the tour. I thoroughly recommend this tour and David as your guide.

    We were picked-up at hour hotel's reception by the sympathic David and an airconditioned car it was really hot outside. David spoke perfect English, and was very knowledgeable about all he showed us, but we also had quite some fun chit-chatting about daily life, and our chinese adventure so far.
    David tailored the tour a bit to our interests, so we visited a bamboo-forest instead of a Buddhist temple which we had visited before on our own.
    The visit to the tea-factory and the explanations given by David were a true highlights of the tour.

    Visiting Hangzhou, then this tour is highly recommended !
