Our Pick up sign" Hangzhou Private Tour"

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 Lingyin Temple & Feilai Peak. At the site, you'll see the ancient tree roots that rise above the ground, their branches twisting and winding up the peak. Immerse yourself in Lingyin Temple, the biggest & oldest temple of China. It's a great centre of information for those who wish to study aspects of Chinese Buddhism in detail. You'll see the palaces, pavilions and halls together with their many figures of Buddhist deities represent a splendid and unque collection of architectural and artistic cultural relics . From the Lingyin Temple, walk along a cobblestone pathway leading to Amanfayun Village, a restored Chinese village dating back hundreds of years and situated in a remote forest of camphor and bamboo. Immerse yourself in the tranquil atmosphere of the hamlet dotted with traditional dwellings and surrounded by tea fields.

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.

One day great tour in Hangzhou with China private tour

Great service! It was a nice trip in Hangzhou & we had 2 days off. They offered a great service and managed everything nicely. Tour guide Sam was just amazing! Sam spoke EXCELLENT english, very knowledgeable about the places. The driver service was good and food at the local farmer's house was delicious! We couldn't have asked for a better tour in Hangzhou! The whole trip was SUCH a pleasure because of the caring attention of our Sam. The tasting and visit to the tea plantation was a highlight as well. All in all a great day. Thanks again.......

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.

Wonderful Hangzhou Tour with David!

My fiancee and I are so happy that we chose to do a private day tour with David for our visit in Hangzhou. He met us at our hotel lobby on time. He was incredibly knowledgeable about history and the areas we were visiting and the tour went so smoothly. He selected our lunch menu and the food was incredibly delicious - we got to sit in a private room with the window overlooking the tea harvesting and listening to the rain. It was such a beautiful day - I would highly recommend this hangzhou tour!
