What to Expect
Your day begins with a departure from your selected starting point. Choose to book a private vehicle or travel by public transportation. The itinerary is completely flexible, but note many admission charges are not included. Many tours start with the Pudong financial district, where you can view Shanghai from an impressive vantage point. Visit the observatory tower at the World Financial Center, the Oriental Pearl Tower, or Shanghai Tower. Then, you may want to explore the colonial-era promenade—the Bund. You can visit the Confucius Temple, enjoy dumplings for lunch (own expense,) or go to Yuyuan Garden and Bazaar. Try a Tang Dynasty–style tea ceremony, a popular option, followed by a visit to Shanghai’s Former French Concession area to see colonial-era buildings transformed into restaurants and shops. The tour ends back at your start point.

We had a wonderful full day visiting Suzhou and Zhouzhuang with Celine! It was raining, which scared off a lot of visitors and allowed us to have many of the sites to ourselves. We visited Tiger Hill Pagoda, the City Wall and it’s many gardens and the Silk Museum. In ZhouZhuang

Dear Scott, I am so glad you were able to spend so much time with us and enjoyed the days with Apple and Celine. I know you received multiple perspectives by having different guides for your 4 days. This is one of the benefits we are happy to provide if customers wanted. We know some customers love to have the same guide everyday since they quickly become friends.:) Please come to visit us again and next time let's go to Beijing. Bes,t Jenny
