First, take a bost cruise in the westlake,The Westlake Hangzhou (including boat cruise on westlake): West Lake has an area of 5.6 square kilometers (2.2 square miles) and is the symbol of Hangzhou which lies on its banks and is a place of tranquility. On the boat you can see one of theTen Best Views of West Lake--Three Pools Mirroring the Moon.The occasional pagoda and Chinese-style arched bridges add atmosphere to the tree-lined walkways, verdant islands and hills make West Lake a very special part of any China experience.

After that, visit the  Fish Viewing at the Flower Pond(Huagang Park). This spot is located at the southern end of Su Causeway. A clean stream flows from Huajia Hill to join West Lake here, and many flowers grow where the fresh water flows in, so it called "Flowery Harbor". This area now has been made into a 22 hectare (54 acre) park with many varieties of trees and flowers, featuring a peony garden which blooms in April and a goldfish pond which is the famous site for viewing fish. 

Later, drive to the Guo Garden : Completed in 1861, this elegant garden villa was built as a private retreat for a wealthy Qing Dynasty silk merchant. Guo's Villa (Guō Zhuāng, 郭庄) is a fine example of Chinese aesthetics in which the manmade and natural blend in harmonious balance.The Villa opened to the public in 1991, after being restored. It faces Spring Dawn, by the Sudi Causeway which crosses the West Lake, and has a distant view of the serene Southern Screen Hill and the Baochu Pagoda. The villa has two sections (1) Living in Quietness, where the owner lived (2) the Sky in the Mirror garden, with a pond surrounded by roofed corridors (lang), bridges, rockwork, trees and flowers. 

After visiting the Guo's villa, drive to a village in the mountain side, our guide will pick a nice place for you for lunch!

Have your Lunch at the restaurant popular with the local people to stay away from the tourists' meals.( In china, do not go to the tourists's restaurants when you are on a tour. You shold go to the right place to have the meals, then you are in real china ). We give you the meal options as below:

1) Lunch at Local Tea Farmer's Tea House to know the real life of the local people:And we also can organize tea farmers teach you how to prepare, cook local delicaies if you want to. You can learn how to cook: Beger's Chicken, Westlake carp in vinegar source(Do not be scared, no bones!!! Aha), Lotus root, bamboo shoot...and other many tasty vegetables )

2) At the local restaurants which are popular with local people, such as Grandma's Kitchen, Green Tea Restaurants...And also fancy ones as well, 28 Hubin Road(Top 50 Best in Asia, Jinsha Restaurant in Four Seasons Hotel. We are the local, we are the sources. We know many excellent restaurants even not listed on Lonely Planet and some other travel guides.

After lunch, move to theMeijiawu Tea Plantation:Drogon Well Tea (simplified Chinese: 龙井茶; traditional Chinese: 龍井茶; pinyin: lóngjǐng chá), also known as Longjing tea, is a variety of roasted green tea from Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, China where it is produced mostly by hand and has been renowned for its high quality, earning the China Famous Tea title. Meijiawu Tea village is seated at the hinterland of West Lake Park and it boasts the most important Dragon tea production basis. Here you are in an original natural environment, just relax your feelings and enjoy the special tea culture, taste the fragrant tea while appreciating the beautiful village scenery. And our guide or Tea Farmer will show you how to pick the leaves, how to fry the leaves and how to drink the best tea in China.

After tea testing, move toBamboo lined path at Yunqi:The forest is breathtaking. It really makes you realise how insignificant you are when you stand next to the bamboo trees towering way above you. You are surprised at how hard the bamboo actually was - no wonder Asian builders use it as scaffolding! The thing really liked about the bamboo forest is the light - even though the forest was dense, it still seemed really light and crisp, because of the fact the bamboo's all green (not like normal trees where the trunk is dark brown). It gives the forest a totally different vibe, hard to explain but it was just fascinating.

The last stop is The Hangzhou Qianjiang CBD, located in the southeast side of downtown Hangzhou, next to the Qiantang River. It is 4.5 km away from the West Lake Scenic Spot. The central area of the Hangzhou CBD (total area 3.29 km2) will serve as Hangzhou’s future business, political and cultural center. Overall development plans include 650m2 of Grade-A offices, hotels, shopping malls and luxury residences. This place will give you a different impression about Hangzhou and show you the future of Hangzhou.

After the tour, our tour guide and driver will drive you back to your hotel in Hangzhou or the hangzhou train station and your tour ends.

Excellent!!

Excellent Hangzhou trip organized by China Private Tour. The schedule she prepared included visits to very beautiful and equally important places from historical point of view. Our guide Sharon had also the kindness to insert in the schedule whatever we asked her. She was also taking care of us during the whole trip and arranged on the spot any matter that arose.She also showed to us the best aspects of Hangzhou and took us to a very good local restaurant. She has been tireless and addressed always with a warm smile any contingency. When we said goodbye at train station, she was already our friend.Unfortunately, I was not keen to be informed of his family name. He was driving carefully and safely during the whole journey and always kept the car clean and had available fresh water and water supply for us. Highly Recommended!

Highly recommendable!!!

Whilst my partner was attending a conference, I decided to book this tour to occupy my time and learn more about Hangzhou.

It turned out to be a really eye opening experience for me! The car and driver were a very comfortable and time saving experience. Bonnie was a very competent guide who could answer all my questions and carried out the tour with enthusiasm and competence from begging to end. The West Lake tour, tea plantation and temples were total highlights!

Many thanks again to Bonnie and China tours! I highly recommend anyone visiting the area to take this tour!

A perfect day tour in Hangzhou

This tour was amazing! Our tour guide Sharon explained things clearly and was easy to approach for questions. My sister and I were doing business due to a layover and booked this tour. I was a little skeptical since there were other tour groups to choose from. I didn't have much time to properly research but luckily all turned out well! Also the team was easy to contact and they were quick with replies. I highly recommend this tour!

Our excellent private hangzhou day tour with David

Our guide David is kind and very humorous guy. He know everything which we asked regarding Hangzhou history, culture, people and etc. he speaks English very well and considered route, food, further last our journey. Car was clean and his driving also calm. He recommended restaurant for lunch and it was good and very nice place. Hangzhou is not easy city you travel alone especially if you don’t speak Chinese. Try with David first and maybe last of journey will be easier. I definitely recommend this trip and also our guide David you will not disappointed.
