We had a fantastic day, with Berlin and Elsa as our guides. Everything was very well-prepared beforehand, and Berlin was right on time to collect us at our hotel. Transportation throughout the day was smooth and easy. Elsa’s knowledge of and enthusiasm for the Hangzhou area was wonderful. They took us to a fantastic restaurant and introduced us to delicious local foods. Both the visit to the Hupao Spring and the hike through tea plantations were a great way to spend the day, and relaxing with green tea was a great way to end it! Berlin and Elsa were wonderful company, and we enjoyed everything about the tour. We would highly recommend this excursion to anyone, and we would happily spend another day with Berlin and Elsa.
Great way to get out of the Shanghai Hustle for a day and see nature
After spending a few days in Suzhou and Shanghai our group was anxious to connect with nature. This was a very active tour- we are regular people in our fourties and were easily able to navigate the trails and stairs that we took. Alana and May were so knowledgeable and helpful- when we added another guest the day before they didn’t blink an eye- they made it seem seamless. Lunch on the tea plantation was the highlight, there was no way to eat that much and suck variety! Hats off to our driver, he navigated the smallest of places. Hangzou really is a heavenly place and worth the detour out of Shanghai for a day.
