This was one of our best choices while in Hangzhou. Our guide Tommy was so great an accommodating to all our requests. He picked us up from the hotel, which was not located downtown.
It was a great experience right from the start, he explained some of the key aspects of Chinese culture and history, took us to Whuzen Water Town and navigate around it avoiding the crowds. He took wonderful pictures of us and explained everything we wanted to know.
After the tour he took us to have a traditional lunch far away from the touristy places to an authentic traditional restaurant.
Great day, great lunch and great tour.
I recommend it 100%

This trip was incredible.. Wuzhen was a beautiful water village close by Hangzhou and full of History. We had the opportunity to try a ton of local food and it was all incredible. Our tour guide Bonnie was extremely informative and clearly very passionate about what she does. We had a great time with her and had some good laughs and learned a lot about chinese culture as a whole. The tour started and ended exactly on time and the timing of the spots was very well thought out. This is a must for anyone who wants to get a taste of what real, old world china is like.

Wuzhen is a wonderful tour place where you can see history, ancient streets, and how ancient China was. Great gondola trip through the town. It’s amazing how the shops, restaurants, clubs, etc have all adapted to this town. It was great people watching and just exploring. This tour allows you to go at your pace, see what you want to see, and focus on what you like. BERLIN was a great tour guide and didn’t pressure us into anything, helped us explore local cuisine, and really helped us understand everything wuzhen had to offer. If you have a day in Hangzhou and want to get away, do this tour.

We signed up for a one day trip from Hangzhou to Wuzhen at the last minute (in fact just the day before the trip) and were pleasantly surprised that they could confirm the tour at such short notice. Our guide was David, who speaks excellent English and Chinese. He is very knowledgeable of the history and culture of China. Hence, it was a educational tour for us too!

We are really thankful that David was able to steer us away from the crowd and hence we were able to take in the sights at our own pace. He provided nuggets of information at every locations we went into. Enough information for us to appreciate what we were seeing. Never intrusive, he gave us lots of time to explore on our own.

We were supposed to arrive back in Hangzhou at 4pm but we enjoyed the tour so much that we extended it till 6pm! :)

We highly recommend David for this Wuzhen tour.
