    Daisy was waiting for us at 09.00 in the hotel lobby, we were taken by taxi to Shanghai station and took the bullet train to Suzhou. We spent the whole day in Suzhou including rickshaw ride, authentic Chinese meal and private water cruise, returning to hotel in Shanghai at around 19.00. Very impressed with tour and Daisy as a tour guide. Would have liked a little more time for shopping.

    The private tour is pricier, but so worth. We did two with this company, one to SuZhou and one to Hangzhou. Xin was our Suzhou guide. Her english was great and was a very experienced guide. This tour makes everything very convenient, it is not easy as a foreigner to figure out how to get to all these places. The bullet train saves a lot of time over group tours that use buses. They also have a private driver in Suzhou that saves a lot of time as well, you can see more things that way. The lunch option was also amazing, Xin took us to an authentic place for good local food. The rickshaw ride was our favorite part of the trip! Highly recommended for the attention they give you and for being able to see a lot in one day efficiently and in comfort!

    Our travel guide was Alana and our local guide was Tracey. They were both excellent! The tour was very well planned and all the logistics went very smoothly. They were both full of lots of information and we felt like they really cared about providing an interesting and well run tour. They brought us to a local restaurant in Suzhou and the food was excellent, it was one of the best meals we had while we were in China. The transportation provided, the train and cars , were all first class. Water and snacks were provided during the day. We had plenty of time at each sight and we never felt rushed. Our day in Suzhou was the nicest day we had while we were in the Shanghai area. I can not say enough nice things about this tour!

    Berlin is an excellent guide and with their careful booking and planning, our tour was excellent - the first venue was quite crowded and Berlin assisted in helping us to get around the crowds and noted may of the things we might miss such as the art on the pathways. Her flexibility and kind nature helped us to have a wonderful day - we had a great peaceful boat ride and the visit to the east gate was nice - it was so serene there. The bullet train ride was our first and was nice and super smooth. Berlin made sure of our comfort throughout the day and we had a wonderful lunch.)

    Daisy is very informative and Super friendly. She’s very passionate about her work and shared a lot of history and information with us. She’s able to mingle well with my group from young to old and has a great sense of humor. She’s a gem to the company team. Keep up the good job and we definitely will book another trip with the company again.

    We had a great day from start to finish. We were met at our hotel at 9am as arranged. We went by private vane to bullet train and had excellent seats in 1st class. Our guide Jenny was very knowledgeable and helpful and knows so much about Suzhou. We were taken to many interesting places, including the Humble Administrator’s Garden which was lovely and made all the more interesting by Jenny who elaborated on the history. We had a boat ride on the river. Lunch was at a lovely hotel found by Jenny. The lunch was excellent local cuisine ... I am vegetarian and Jenny made sure I had plenty to eat! We did a rickshaw ride to the Pan City Wall .... the gardens and settings here were absolutely amazing and much quieter than the Humble Administrator’s garden.... again Jenny was so informative. We went to Shan Tang Old Dream Tea Room for traditional jasmine tea and were treated to an opera and music in the most idyllic of settings. We had a fantastic day, were very well looked after by Jenny and not forgetting our driver who always appeared when we needed him. Highly recommend!

    This was a great trip! I very much appreciated all of the communication between Alana since I booked the trip. Everything was easy, from the booking, the pickup and all of the transfers. I also very much enjoyed spending the day with Berlin. She had lots of energy, was very knowledgeable, answered all of my questions and was very willing to show me some hidden gems! I definitely would have her as a guide again if I have the chance! 😀 I thought every part of the trip was unique and well thought out! It was a great day!

    Yes, we had a super trip with Berlin and Barbara looking after us so well. We very much enjoyed the gardens, rickshaw and local lunch. Unfortunately we had to cut the trip short a little as had meeting in Shanghai. The bullet train was also very interesting journey as max speed at home is 100km. Very happy to recommend 5/5.

    Great and really enjoyable day for my family with my toddler granddaughter. The tour guide and the driver took care of us really well, very accommodating. Quality of this tour is good, and they are knowledgeable too!

    It was wonderful. I would give the tour the highest rating of 5. Daisy was such a pleasure to spend the day with. She had so much knowledge, enthusiasm and professionalism! I will definitely want her to show me something new the next time I am in Shanghai! Truly a great day!
