Take your time and Slow Down and enjoy the view. Life to way to complicated. Turn OFF the cell phone, and relax for a change. Your body will like it, your mind will not as it stresses to cope with peace.

Amazing day with Bonnie
Jul 2018 • Friends
We were a group of North American Faculty teaching in Shanghai. We planned a trip to Hangzhou with some of our family members and decided to hire China Private Tours because of the excellent reviews we had seen on Trip Advisor. There were 11 of us so we arranged a private tour with a bus, driver, and guide. Our day was better than we even imagined. Our guide, Bonnie was extremely knowledgeable, spoke excellent English, and was very informative answering lots of questions from a group of curious college faculty. West Lake was gorgeous, We enjoyed the walk around the grounds and boat trip on the Lake. Bonnie was very knowledgeable about the Lingyin Temple, sharing lots of information about Buddhism. We had a great time at the Longjing Tea Planation and were entertained by the "show" the sales staff put on--Home Shopping Network style. It was very informative, the tea was delicious and many of us bought some to take home. We appreciated how flexible Bonnie was. She arranged two different locations for our lunch since some of us wanted to go to the Farmers House and some to the Four Seasons. She dropped us off and picked us up and didn't miss a beat. Bonnie also brought some of us to the train station at the end of the tour and had the bus driver take the others, who were staying a second night in Hangzhou, back to the hotel. We had a great time and highly recommend that if you visit Hangzhou, you should use China Private Tours and ASK FOR BONNIE!! We gave her an A+.

A Wonderful Day!
Nov 2017 • Family
Our family of four recently spent a full day on a private tour on Hangzhou with Sharon. We've been on tours before and may never want to go on anything but a private tour again. Sharon was like a good family friend showing us sites and personalizing our trip to our needs yet sharing details about Hangzhou that we just couldn't have known without her help. We particularly wanted to experience the "nature" of the city and Sharon effortlessly paid attention to this and led us to places that weren't as crowded with weekend visitors as others. Sharon showed us sites at the more crowded Lingyin Temple that were actually very secluded in the midst of weekend visitors. She knew the places to go and get a very special view of a very special city. Only an experienced local could know this and her attention to detail was very appreciated. It made for a memorable day that would have been utterly impossible on our own. Thank you Sharon!!

Private Two-Day Tour
Nov 2017 • Family
Our guide, Sharon, 珍珍, was excellent. Informed, polite, engaging, punctual, energetic and enjoyable to be with. She listens to questions and provides thoughtful answers - she is a genuine professional. As we only had two days, I believe we covered the majority of major attractions and sites. However, if I were to plan my trip again, I would add an extra day, just to walk around some of the areas we saw. I'd want to spend "free time" at the old shopping area, and "free time" on a long Sunday afternoon along the West Lake. Also, be sure you stay near the West Lake. Spend the extra money so that you can walk whenever you get the urge. How many times will you go to Hangzhou?

Fantastic Two days Hangzhou tour with Guide SHARON of China Merchants International Travel Company
Nov 2017 • Friends
We booked a private two day tour on Saturday evening and were pleased to learn that we could schedule it for the next morning. The booking process was quick and simple and received our confirmation very fast with reasonable rates. The entire tour was great. We were picked on time at our hotel by our tour guide, Mz. Sharon and a driver in a new and spacious van. Hangzhou is a beautiful city, but what made the tour truly special was Sharon. A cheerful young beautiful girl, with deep knowledge of the Hangzhou, its present treasures and its history. We learned about History, religion and culture in a fluent English while enjoying every sights seen. For lunch she chose a good tasty restaurant with spicy food which we Indians like.. Every sight that was listed in the itinerary and I think more than she was covered which we requested in a friendly and personal way. It was a wonderful day. We strongly recommend this tour with SHARON as guide.

Accommodating, pleasurable, fun package
Oct 2017 • Solo
My tour guide Sharon was accommodating, reliable, knowledgeable, and friendly. I booked a 3 day, day tour with the company, I contacted them with We Chat and they were prompt in answering any question I asked within a few hours. I saw the serene Yunqi bamboo forest, LIngyin Temple, LiuHe Pagoda, Lei Feng Pagoda, boat ride on the West Lake, and spent a day in Wu Zhen water village. It was fun, interactive, and Sharon created an environment as if I was experiencing the tour with a friend.

Our tour guide, David, was prompt, knowledgeable, and courteous throughout the tour. The tour throughout Hangzhou was given during our very first visit to the city, and David's help made the visit that much more interesting. Hangzhou is a remarkable place with several interesting site and a rich history. David's help put much of it into perspective. It was a great way to spend a day! If I return to Hangzhou, I will surely look up this tour company again.
