What To Expect

Lion Forest Garden
What better way to explore one of the most historical town near Shanghai—still mostly survived China's modernization drive—than by having an indigenous inhabitant tell you stories about the history and evolution of the 2500-year-old quaint town. I am a local Shanghainese—born, and lived here all my life.We will be going to Suzhou by bullet Train(at the speed of 180miles/hour!) -Known as "Venice of The East ", 60 miles from downtown Shanghai, Suzhou has managed to maintain most of its old buildings and population. Besides exploring the a beautiful 700-year Garden , we will also visit Suzhou Museum, maybe the most beautiful museum in China designed by American L.M PEI(where Suzhou is his ancestry home!), after refueling with a typical Suzhou lunch, we will take a Suzhou style Gondola trip down the charming canals. Finally, we will sip some tea from local tea farms while enjoying a beautiful tea ceremony , so you can immerse deeper into local life. In just a few hours, we will explore a town with very different feel from Shanghai.

Great off-the-track tour

Great tour – highly recommended!
Bill is great, knowledgeable and very open and pleasant. I literary booked the tour in the “last minute” (evening before) and Bill was kind enough to accept and meet me on-time in the following morning for a full-day tour till evening (knowing he had another full day tour in the following day). The fact that tour is based on the public transportation is also nice since it‘s more efficient (e.g. bullet train, avoid losing time on traffic) and it also gives another glimpse on the locals. My goal was to avoid the common-commercial-standard-touristic tours in which you arrive in a ~herd, take a photo and move on to the next place, and the tour with Bill provided just that- it was relaxed, with nice walks, explanations and discussions. Suzhou seems to have much less western tourists (in the entire day we saw only few) and it was the perfect place to spend the day and watch-discuss Chinese’s culture and history - old/new/garden/”water town” and more. I especially appreciate the many ‘small talks’ we had about Chinese people living TODAY. Thank you bill for the interesting tour – thank you for being open and a great guide :-)
