Super enjoyable day with the green bamboo forest and tea plantation. Great relaxation in calm environments + Great Guide
Doris was a super friendly & knowledgable guide who was very willing to help us & share stories or history with us from the moment we met in Hotel lobby until we got dropped off on the next site we wanted to visit. The bamboo forest Is so lovely with all that green, calm atmosphere. Only a few tourists. We were lucky to hear birds singing and it was a pleasant walk to some nice pavilions. Be prepared to walk a few kilometers for this part but the pace is slow and environment so nice so you will likely not be bothered about the distance. Doris was happy to help with group pictures. Then we went on to the tea villages and enjoyed the nice view of the hills covered in tea plantations. We got to walk up to a pavilion popular to the locals that was completely surrounded by Tea fields. Very nice views & great pictures. Then we had a tasty lunch that was customized according to our desires and completely included in tour cost. We got quite a lot of food and nice Dragon well Tea and even some beers. As a bonus on our own desire Doris arranged to drop us off at Lingyin temple and made great recommendations on what to see. She also wrote a list on other places to see and restaurants for the rest of our own Hangzhou trip. Great Day all-in-all!

Great half-day tour with Carol!
My wife and I toured Hangzhou with Carol during mid-autumn fest weekend - it was an amazing experience from Ling Yin temple to Longing tea village to Qinghefeng! Our tour guide was Carol who is very knowledgeable, kind and professional, and her itinerary was so much effective for us to look around Hangzhou attractions on such a crowded weekend. Strongly recommend to those expats visiting Hangzhou for a great authentic experience! Thank you Carol and Alana!

Half day tour of Hangzhou
I booked a half day tour for my Mom and I to cruise around the West Lake, see Lingyin temple, and visit the Meijiawu tea plantation. Our tour guide, Mavis, was wonderful!! She was very knowledgable and friendly, took care of getting our tickets, and coordinated with the driver when we went to different locations. Having an air conditioned car take us around was also very convenient and nice in the hot summer. Mavis listened to our interests and really made the trip great! I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Hangzhou!

Wonderful Day of Hangzhou's Highlights
We have traveled to several cities in China and our day trip to Hangzhou was by far the most beautiful. Our guide, Cindy made sure that we had a fantastic day. She is charming, funny, and best of all very knowledgeable about the area. We loved hearing her stories of local lore. Cindy set a great pace for the day and was attuned to our interests and attention span at all times. She also seamlessly handled all of the logistics that can be hard for foreigners in China like purchasing tickets, coordination with the driver, recommending items from the lunch menu, and helping pick up tickets from the train station. She also takes great pictures! We loved every moment of our tour from the towering Pagoda, to the beautiful West Lake, to lunch at the tea plantation, and the magnificent temple. Our driver was also wonderful and made sure we were comfortable. His van had roomy seats and very cold AC, which was welcome in the summer heat. Plus lots of water. He was friendly and prompt. We highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Hangzhou. It was the perfect finale to our two weeks in China!

Great day tour in Hangzhou
My colleague and I took a quick side trip to Hangzhou during our business trip. Our guide, Doris, was wonderful and very knowledgeable of the area being a native of Hangzhou :-) Doris met us at the train station and helped us pick up our return tickets and then took us on a day long tour of Hangzhou . She helped tune our trip to sites we wanted to see as we were more interested in nature scenes. We went around West Lake in a boat and walked around the causeway, saw old villages, hiked around tea plantations with wonderful views, had a great lunch and finished with a hike in a bamboo forest. Doris spoke English well and we had no problem communicating. At the end of the day she took us to the hotel, helped us check in and arrange taxi for next day for train station, and suggested several good restaurants. Overall a very good day and a great guide. Would recommend this tour with Doris!

She was so informative at the temple and happy to help in any way she could. The tea plantations were great and we were shown and tasted different types of tea. This was all followed by a great lunch! We had such a great day and would highly recommend! Thanks Tina ☺

Schöner Halbtagesausflug
Schöner Halbtagesausflug, welcher durchaus geeignet für Familien mit Kleinkindern ist. Der Bambuswald eignet sich hervorragend zur Abkühlung im Sommer und die Teeplantagen sind definitiv eine Reise wert um der Stadt zu entfliehen. Im Sommer sind die Teeplantagen nahezu leer von Touristen.
