Review of: Private Suzhou Tour and Zhouzhuang Water Town Visit- Sophie Jiang
Vincent Z, 29-10-2019
I never thought of having a wonderful time before we met Ms Sophie Jiang! We indeed spent a specular day at Suzhou and ZhouZhuang Village in the coming passed Saturday. Sophie definitely deserves to be called a 5 star golden metal tour guide. She is charming, funny, knowledgably about Chinese culture, language. She indeed excited us to have more question back to her with her lovely smile!
We started with a tour to Suzhou city. Sophie gave us some options on the garden selection at Suzhou. There are so many greatest gardens in Suzhou and normally it is a tough question to ask – which one you want to go if you want to visit typical one within one day. Sophie was so patiently described the details to us during our way to downtown from our hotel- W Suzhou. She recommended Lion Grove Garden based on our interest and her knowledge. This was so effectively to save us time and maximized our interest to Suzhou within such short time of the tour.
Sophie has a perfect English and we were surprised to know that she learnt English by herself without going aboard or attending from a foreign college- she learnt English from Youtube !
Although I grew up at China and I was lucky to know her and learned a lot from her on the Chines culture and the meaningful puzzles observed at Lion Grove Garden.
She also came to know our interest to Suzhou silk and brought us to the Suzhou first silk factory. We came to know a lot about the history of the silk and origin of the industry.
She is so caring, and mostly important, she is a beautiful girl with smart smile and full answers whenever to your questions. Also she is a smart girl with excellent photographing techniques and knows the best places and moment to take photos for us.

Finally she performed the Qun Opera to us to make a greatest close remark of our trip.
We love to have Sophie to be with us and we will come back with her if we have chance. Introduce her to my friends, sure, I highly recommend Sophie Jiang.
