Really great way to explore the area in a short amount of time!
, Nov 2019
My boyfriend and I visited Hangzhou for the first time and only had 2 days. We spent the first day on this tour and Nancy was fantastic. She knew so much about the towns and was very personable. We learned a lot about the village and the stories, and Nancy was able to advise us for what to do for our second day as well.

The full day tour is well planned and the tour was conducted in a relaxed mode. The tour guide Bonnie and the driver are both friendly. Bonnie is able to converse with the group in both Chinese and English which was helpful.
Not a wasted moment!

My family of four were taken around Hangzhou by David! He was articulate in his English, humorous and through when describing the different places we visited. I would highly recommend using Viator and asking for David on this tour or any other trip he might guide! Thank you.
Ultimate service and helpful

We were late for our arrival and the Viator team was FANTASTIC is being patient and finding us in a very crowded train station in Hangzhou. Our tour guide Bonnie had IMPECCABLE English and a sunny disposition that made our day delightful. She also was quite knowledgeable about local Hangzhou culture and current Alibaba information, which was quite fascinating. We would ask for Bonnie next time for sure!

My tour guide, Bonnie, was very knowledgeable regarding all of the sites in Hangzhou. She did a great job of showing me around and filling me in on the history and culture. The boat trip on Westlake was enjoyable, gave a lay of the land, and the temple tour was a very interesting site. the lunch at the farmer restaurant was really tasty, and I thought the tea plantation information informative and interesting as well. I could have done without the tour of the shopping plaza, very touristy, but it did have some interest foods and goods, including being made on site that were interesting. Driver did a nice job dropping us off at convenient spots and picking us up also.

Our guide, David, was absolutely wonderful. His english is perfect and he was a delightful guide and companion for our tour around Hangzhou. We not only enjoyed learning about the sights he showed us it was also a treat to have an opportunity to speak with someone about China and ask the many questions that had occurred to us during our visit. There were six of us on the tour: myself and my husband and our four children 14, 12, 10 and 7. We all had a fantastic time. Hangzhou was literally a breath of fresh air after four days in Shanghai. It is a beautiful place. Don't hesitate to take this tour!

An amazing host who would have done anything for us she looked after a sick family member like she was one of us!, a peaceful lunch in the mountains and great sightseeing. Just try and avoid purchasing anything from the tea plantation, they put the hard sell on you.

TOUR OPERATOR COMMENT: Dear Anthony, Thanks for your review and your praise for our team. Yes, you are right, the tea plantation area serves very good quality tea and that area is one of the most beautiful parts in Hangzhou. A must going place for all the tourists visiting Hangzhou. Tea is the main source of income in this area as well. It's an idea place for tea lovers, nature lovers. Next time, if you or your friends come back to hangzhou, you can ask our guide to skip the tea testing part if you are not tea drinker or not interested in tea. Our tours are 100% flexible and 100% customized for our clients. And we guarantee that our guides never push our clients to buy any tea there. We even ask and train our guides to help some tea lovers to purchase the tea standing by their sides. As a leading travel agency in Hangzhou, we represented all the Hangzhou travel agencies called the tea plantation to stop selling tea to the tourists who is not interested with a compulsive push. And they promised it will never happen again. Looking forward your next trip to Hangzhou!

We had a great time on this tour and learned more in one day than we could have in weeks of walking around on our own. Bonnie was fantastic. She spoke excellent English and was able to answer every question we had. Having an air conditioned car waiting for us at the end of each stop was worth the price of the tour alone. Highly recommended.

We were picked-up by Bonnie at the hotel lobby promptly, the day itinerary went smoothly according to plan, sufficient to give us a good overview of Hangzhou. Bonnie was friendly and knowledgeable. Although it was an English tour, however we conversed in Mandarin, and managed to gather many other local tips including night market where we visited that evening. The driver was equally competent and safe. Overall it was a very pleasant and enjoyable day trip.

Great tour with David, would highly recommend as he is from Hangzhou and has a great deal of knowledge. We were able to tailor our tour and David was very flexible. Sam was also very helpful and accessible for us to reconfirm our pick up time. A very professional team and the best way to see Hangzhou if you have limited time. The driver was also very professional. Just a wonderful experience overall. Thanks again David and Sam! We'll be in touch when we are back to Hangzhou. Tina

I enjoy the sightseeing tour conducted by Bonnie. She's professional, and she knows her stuff. I was glad that other than the tour, she has provided some recommendations for good food.
