With your personal tour guide, you will be taken to famous Hangzhou West Lake-one of world UNESCO Sites. The best way to viste the lake is by boat. We special arrange a private boat for you since the public tourist boat are very crowded and noisy and sail to the secret parts of the westlake only known by local people.Taking a boat sailing on the picturesque West Lake is an enjoyable and relaxing way to appreciate the beautiful scenery with its islands, causeways, temples, pagodas and ornamental planting.

Later, visit the Lingyin Temple: Lingyin Temple is one of the ten most famous ancientBuddhist temples in China. It also houses various Buddhist literature and treasures situated in front of the Temple, and is famous for its more than 470 stone carvings of Buddhist figures, which dated from the 10th to 14th centuries.

After visiting the Lingyin temple, walk from the back door of the temple to the Amanfayun Village: The picturesque Aman Fayun Village is located in the Fayun Nong area, surrounded by natural forest and scenery, a short drive west of Hangzhou. Nearby attractions include the village of Tianzhu, the Lingyin Temple, Flower Pond, West Lake, Hangzhou History Museum, and the Yongfu Temple. Amanfayun is located in a remote and tranquil forest., immerse yourself in an atmosphere of a traditional Chinese village; a true journey through time. Encountering Amanfayun for the first time is like stepping into a Zhang Yimou film (he of Raise the Red Lantern and the Beijing Olympics opening and closing ceremonies fame); your every glance is greeted with a kind of mise en scene; a bright-yellow parasol against the muted stone buildings, a glimpse into an ancient courtyard to someone sweeping away the fallen autumn leaves, a carved inscription in stone framed by lush wet vines. You will feel becoming gently untethered from the concerns of the day.

After walking across the Aman Fayun Village, drive to a village in the mountain side, our guide will pick a nice place for you for lunch!

Amazing Hangzhou Tour Service to skip the line

I booked our hangzhou tours with Hangzhou Private Tour at the last minute. I emailed on a Sunday and they responded very quickly and we booked for the Tuesday morning. Our guide Tommy arrived on time with a very comfortable vehicle with drinks and snacks. We were taken to all the places that we wanted and several that he guessed we would like (and he was not wrong), West Lake, Leifeng Pagoda, Lingyin Temple, the Lin Biao Bunker, and the tea plantation. We stopped at an awesome restaurant for lunch: at which Tommy pick the various plates and again we were not disappointed. Tommy is a very knowledgable guide, good humoured and fantastic with kids. He knows Hangzhou well and can make quick choices that are to his clients liking. We were very impressed with his service we booked him for a second day. This time the itinery was based around our personal interests alibaba.com, hangzhou second highschool, Former Residence of Hu Xueyan, beautiful gardens with chinese opera. He bartered for us and got us great deals. Lunch on this day was near the tea plantations near west lake again his choices where great.
We highly recommend Hangzhou Private Tour and in particular Tommy

A awesome day in Hangzhou with tour guide Wendy

I was looking for a group tour last minute but the tickets were sold out. I was a bit nervous booking a private tour since this is my first time doing this. Two of my aunts came from Korea and they also have never been on a private tour. But they had a relaxing and enjoyable time. The driver was courteous and patient! Wendy was our tour guide and made sure we had a good time. She is friendly; she always answered any questions we had. My aunts and I were happy to visit Hangzhou.

Wonderful day trip in Hangzhou with tour guide Bonnie

Had a wonderful day in Hangzhou with our tour guide Bonnie. She was very knowledgeable and friendly, and answered all my stupid questions :) it was a pleasure to be guided by her through the amazing city of Hangzhou. I was particularly impressed by the West Lake (it gave me such a peaceful sensation) and the Lingyin temple, an absolute gem! We had a great lunch at the farmers' house (I'd recommend trying the chicken cooked in green tea and the eggplants) and went for a walk in the old street. Our hangzhou trip was very well organized and everything went smoothly. I had such a great time that I won't forget.

Amazing hangzhou tour experience with our tour guide Sharon!

We wanted to hit all the highlights for Hangzhou and reached out to China Hangzhou Tour. They responded quickly with clear information. On the morning itself, we came down early but Sharon was even earlier. She gave a top notch guided tour with clear explanation of the history of Hangzhou and an insider's perspective. The tour was well-organized with the car ride and driver providing seamless service and we were beyond happy with Sharon's services. If we come back, we will definitely engage her again.
