I ended up being the only one on the tour so it was personalized. The guide fell right asleep as we got in the car to drive and soundly slept the whole time, not providing any information or guidance. The town was pretty small and old, and in hindsight I would probably just try to go to nanjing on the high speed train. This smaller town is good for anyone short on time but I would not recommend this tour as the guide then slept the entire way back as well. The tour said we would stop as the silk factory, but this was skipped. They very awkwardly pressured me for tip money at the end which I found completely inappropriate.
The guide is very knowledgeable and open to discussion. I would ask to spend less time at the garden and have more free time to wander the stalls after the gondola ride. They need to allow at least an hour for private walking.
Good tour and very well organized.
Driver and guide were very informative and on time. This is a great way to see the water village of Zhujiajiao.
Nice trip through the village to see a different style of Shanghai.
the place was beautiful an we were lucky because it was a quiet week day. Because the traffic is really bad in Shanghai, the tour seems alittle rushed so that we can end the tour by 6pm. other than that, it was good
The water trip and the tour of the markets was great. The trip there was ok, but the bus trip home was a bit long-winded. Overall, I'm glad I went, but once was enough.
water village was worth seeing. Our guide, good knowledgeable on topic of the village and area. Not good the price for one. We could get a taxi there and back plus entrances to village cheaper. Did not see silk factory that was part of tour with no reason why, spent more in traffic wrong time of day.
The tour was great except for period from 1st October till 7th October Shanghai has national holiday every year....avoid this time at all costs...besides being crowded normally this time it's absolutely crowded...hard to see things as SO many people on holiday ...tour was too quick, not enough time to look at things as too many people plus long queues for anything worth while ,...disappointed we were here at this time
Excellent guide -- very knowledgeable and personable. Such interesting history in the town, but it's become quite touristy which is probably inevitable. It's a long drive during rush hour so best to schedule around that if possible. But I definitely recommend the tour. Cheers!
