Half-Day Private Zhujiajiao Water Town Tour with Boat Ride from Shanghai
From US$60.00
China can be overwhelming, especially when the language is unfamiliar—which makes a private guide less of an indulgence than it is elsewhere. Explore the charming water town of Zhujiajiao the easy way, with a driver-guide who can tend to all your personal needs. You’ll enjoy a boat ride, a guided tour, and a visit to local shops. Convenient hotel pickup and drop-off make for a seamless experience.
What to Expect
After pickup from your hotel or port, your driver and guide will take you to the 400-year-old water town of Zhujiajiao. 
Your private guide will accompany you around the town, exploring its charming bridges and canals. Start with a boat ride to get into the pace of life, then stroll through ancient alleyways to admire landmarks like the Fangsheng Bridge, first built around 300 years ago, and Zhujiajiao Kezhi Garden. After you’ve taken plenty of photographs, your guide will recommend a restaurant for lunch (at your own expense).
After your meal, visit some local shops with your guide on hand to help translate prices. Your tour ends with drop-off back at your hotel or the port.

Great day at Zhujiajiao Water Tour.

Dealing with this company was outstanding. The tour guide (David) was first class. I highly rate the tour, its guide and the way the company handles all of your enquiries and following up. Thank you David for a great day out!!

Sorry but that seems a close call for boarding we were caught in traffic coming back from our trip but as it was orange by the cruise line they did have to wait for us. If it is the start of the cruise and you have boarding... More
